Abstract

In a community-based survey in San Francisco, black men who have sex with men (MSM) had higher rates of same-race/ethnicity sexual partnerships and partners 10 or more years older compared with other MSM. Differences in sexual networks may explain why black MSM have higher HIV prevalence than other MSM despite lower levels of risk behavior.
