During the height of the HIV epidemic, this precaution, unaccompanied by safer sex practices, often provided minimal reduction in risk. Although much later material provided less ambiguous information about risk, these early messages still continue to fuel many CHANGING TO SAFER SEX 35 inaccurate perceptions which lead to underestimation of personal risk, and the continued practice of unsafe sex. Many inaccurate perceptions are based on a poor understanding of the time lag between being infected and developing AIDS, including the perceived efficacy of short-term monogamous relationships, or of reducing the number of partners, and the possibility of detecting HIV status by a physical inspection of potential partners.

This recognition that the notion of partner is at least a second-order concept (and arguably third order) also leaves the way open to aggregate sessions by other criteria, for example, the context of the session (see Davies and Weatherburn, Ch. 8, this volume). ’ WHAT IS A SEXUAL ENCOUNTER? 45 Broadly, there are three classes of answer to this question. The first is to ignore it, to assume that the imprecision of the language is a trivial problem which will be swept up in the sampling process. This approach assumes that any differences in meaning will be minor and will accumulate in the error that remains when the statistical model of choice has been fitted.

This only emphasizes the need to obtain information about HIV incidence outside the ‘gay ghettos’—in minority ethnic communities, among rural and small town gays, and among those men who do not affiliate with a gay community. The personality framework suggests that, in the early stages of the epidemic, there will be a core of gay men who believe they have control over their own health and can make efficacious changes in behaviour. They are likely to be more anxious about their own health and that of their friends and community.
