Amazon.com Review

Why some gay men find it easier to have safe sex than others is a question faced by educators and researchers. Dwayne C. Turner's Risky Sex profiles seven gay men ages 30 to 44 in an effort to understand the myriad influences that go into making decisions about sexual activity. While Risky Sex offers new, and often controversial insights (Turner believes educators should strive toward the more reasonable goal of risk reduction rather than elimination), the power and strength of the book resides in its author's enormously empathetic and beautifully written descriptions of the complexities and diversity of gay men's lives and experiences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Turner presents a well-designed study... of sexual behaviors of HIV negative gay men....between the ages of 30 and 44, living in West Hollywood... in the early 1990s.... He found that the men practiced safer sex almost all the time, but also on occasion had unprotected anal sex. Turner relates his findings to the probable evolutionary origins of basic human urges, and describes probable interactions between these urges and the cultures that coevolved along with human biology... Although methodologically and theoretically sophisticated, the book is also as lucid and well written as a good novel.
