ABSTRACT
The author discusses how advances in treatment for gay men diagnosed with AIDS have led to increases in unprotected sex by gay men. She notes research that suggests gay men are more likely to have high numbers of sexual partners than heterosexual men and that anal sex increases the chances of AIDS transmission. She notes the low number of men who are tested for HIV in Great Britain and discusses the difficulties of promoting safe sex in the gay community.
