Generally, the HIV-positive partner was more concerned about the risk of transmission than the HIV-negative one. Emotional reasons were a key factor, with individuals reporting that intimacy and trust were important reasons for unprotected sex. However, one African woman said that in her relationship and culture it was not possible for a woman to refuse sex to her husband.

Dislike of condoms was another widely reported reason for unprotected sex. Others said that condoms caused erectile dysfunction or were a reminder that HIV was present in the relationship. However, some couples told the investigators that they had never discussed the reasons for not using condoms.

HIV-negative rather than HIV-positive partners were generally more sanguine about the consequences of HIV transmission occurring. One HIV-negative man said that, “Sooner or later there is going to be a cure”. Nor, according to the HIV-negative study participants, would there be blame if transmission occurred. One HIV-negative man told the researchers, “It would upset him more than me,” while his partner said, “If he becomes positive because of me, I don’t know how I’d deal with it”.

(My partner is fortunate enough to only have to shave once a week.....which used to make me mad...)

But the report is pretty spooky reading I thought.....particularly in the light of the increasing infection rates....
