Abstract:
Purpose: To gain understanding of the reasons young adult urban women in an HIV epicenter engage in unprotected sex with men in whom they have low trust and perceive to engage in HIV risk behaviors; to explore sexual pressure; and to elucidate the conditions under which power as knowing participation in change (Barrett, 1998), defined as awareness, choices, feeling free and involvement in change; operate in urban women's dyadic relationships with men. Background: Heterosexual transmission accounts for 79% of HIV infection in women (CDC, 2004). Methods (Design, Participants, Setting, Data Collection, Analytic approach): Design: Qualitative, content analysis Participants: 43 African American and Latina women aged 18 to 25, in sexual relationships with men within the past 3 months Setting: Public housing developments, a daycare center, after school program, and job training center in two HIV epicenters in the urban Northeast. Data Collection: Seven focus groups Analytic approach: Cross case analysis, open and axial coding (Strauss & Corbin, 1990) using HyperResearch? software. Results: Awareness ranges from Do What You Gotta Do to Keep Your Man; to You Don't Own Me. Choices ranges from What He's Doing for Me and As long as I'm the Main Girl; to Focus Know what You Want. Feeling Free ranges from Stuck in Their Ways; to Girl Power. Involvement in Change ranges from In the Heat of the Moment; to Can Feel Good with a Condom. Conclusions and Implications: Unprotected Sex is a usual practice to maintain hope, sensuality, intimacy, and strategic gain. Some women and their partners appear to follow sex scripts (Simon & Gagnon, 1989), enacting an urban contemporary version of stereotypical gender expectations. By adhering to the scripts, favorable outcomes are anticipated; including What He's Doing for Me. Directions for health promotion involve addressing the relationship promoting outcomes of condom protected sex with partners perceived to engage in risk behaviors.
