AbstractThis study investigates event-specific factors that differentiate the last episodes of unprotected anal intercourse (UAI) from protected anal intercourse (PAI) with regular partner (RP) among 213 men who have sex with men (MSM) who did not use condoms consistently using case-crossover analysis. Factors positively associated with the last episode of UAI with RP included: two situational factors (i.e., participant’s suggestion to have UAI, alcohol use) and three environmental/setting factors (i.e., sex took place overseas, during a weekday and not at home). Negative associations with an episode of UAI with RP included: five situational factors (i.e., discussion about condom use prior to sex, RP’s suggestion to have PAI, participant’s suggestion to have PAI, perception that RP would like to use a condom, participant’s planning to use a condom) and two environmental/setting factors (i.e., condoms placed at the venue where sex took place, partner possessed a condom). Thus, these significant event-specific factors explained under which circumstances some MSM would use and would not use condoms during anal sex with RP.
