The purpose of this study was to explore the emotional needs behind decisions around safer sex among men of have sex with men (MSM). Behind shallow explanations for unprotected anal intercourse like “I was drunk”, “We didn’t have any condom”, and “He looked healthy” lie deeper explanations.
The study gives us an understanding of what hinders, but above all what motivates, MSM to use a condom during anal intercourse. This gives a good opportunity to a positive approach to advocate condom use, such as in a motivational interview, during group interventions and in campaigns.
