To accrue large enough numbers of MSM to achieve stable estimates of sex frequency and to be able to report stratified results, we used an Internet recruitment method with national scope. Using the proportional odds model for health-related outcomes: This finding supports other work that has found the same association 6 , On the whole, our data and analyses of population surveys suggest that patterns of sexual frequency between MSM and other Americans hold more similarities—in terms of relationship duration, race, and partner type—than differences. Given this combination of high-risk behaviors, especially having multiple sex partners, these heterosexuals should be re-tested annually for HIV according to CDC guidelines 25 ; however, in our sample the inverse relationship between risk and HIV testing was found.
