Rectal Douching and Microbicide Acceptability among Young Men who Have Sex with Men

Include in
Published Research

Men who have sex with men (MSM) commonly report engaging in rectal douching (RD) practices prior to receptive anal intercourse. Researchers are interested in the possibility of designing a RD with a microbicide component. In our analyses, we examined whether YMSM who engaged in RD behaviors differ in HIV prevention behaviors from their non-RD peers. We then examined whether RD frequency was associated with rectal microbicide acceptability.
