  • Descriptive norms about condom use predict odds of using a condom during
           last sexual experience in a large, national survey of adolescents from
           Australia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Molly McCarthy, Sylvia Kauer, Christopher Fisher
      Abstract: Molly McCarthy, Sylvia Kauer, Christopher Fisher
      Social norms impact sexual health behaviours, particularly among young people. In a large, national survey of Australian youth aged 14–18 years, over half of sexually active respondents reported condom use during their last sexual experience&#x003B; condom use was more frequent among respondents who perceived that all same-aged peers used condoms. Future sexuality education interventions may emphasise that most young people choose to use condoms.

      Abstract: Bin Yu, Yuling Huang, Rong Pei, Jiayu Han, Shujuan Yang
      Little research exists on impulsive personality traits (IPTs) in first- and second-year college students who are curious about sex but lack HIV knowledge and safe sex awareness. This cross-sectional study revealed that the students with a greater level of IPTs were more likely to have a high level of HIV stigma and a low level of HIV knowledge and HIV prevention beliefs. Our findings provoke thinking about future campus health education.

      Abstract: Xing Yang, Li Jiang, Ting Fang, Jiegang Huang, Sumin Tan, Chunyan Lu, Jiawen Zhu, Haimei Huang, Min Wang, Yun Zhang, Hao Liang, Ping Cen, Chuanyi Ning
      The HIV self-testing coverage among MSM in resource-limited settings is suboptimal. Social networks could play a direct or indirect role in the HIV self-testing behaviour of MSM. Integrating social networks into testing and prevention services may be viable to control the HIV epidemic in both male–male and male–female interactions in resource-limited settings.

      Abstract: Annalynn M. Galvin, Ashvita Garg, Stacey B. Griner, Anelise K. Diener, Erika L. Thompson
      As women experiencing homelessness are at higher risk of unintended pregnancy and have less access to contraception, this study explored how contraception affected perceived risk of pregnancy. The 19 women experiencing homelessness were asked about how contraception affected pregnancy risk, pregnancy desire, pregnancy attitudes, and current contraception use. Interview themes included contraception efficacy, positive pregnancy desire, and abstinence, which may explain the lack of actual contraception use and better explain contraception and pregnancy preferences for women experiencing homelessness.

      Abstract: Madeleine S. Y. Lim, Jane S. Hocking, Lena Sanci, Meredith Temple-Smith
      Studying abroad provides an opportunity for young adults to explore their sexuality and test risk-taking behaviours&#x003B; however, little is known about international students’ sexual health knowledge and practices. This systematic review identified international students’ sexual health knowledge, behaviours, and attitudes, and highlighted the importance of culturally considerate sex education for Asian international students. This will help ensure a healthier and safer studying abroad experience.

      There has been considerable research investigating bacterial vaginosis in women of reproductive age, but much less is known about its burden in postmenopausal women. This systematic review identified that the little research available suggests that a considerable proportion of postmenopausal women may have bacterial vaginosis at any point in time, but there is a real need for quality research to investigate the impact of bacterial vaginosis on this population group.

      Kissing may be a risk factor for gonorrhoea. We conducted a survey of 357 men who have sex with men (MSM) attending a sexual health clinic in Melbourne in 2019. We found that MSM not only kissed men in the absence of sex, but also women. Oropharyngeal gonorrhoea may be transmitted between MSM and women via kissing in the absence of sex.

      Sexual mixing is a concept that suggests individuals with similar characteristics tend to mix together. This study examines male–female couples attending a sexual health centre together with regards to their previous sexual experiences with same-sex partners. We found that approximately 10% of male–female partnerships attending our clinic had at least one individual in the partnership who had a same-sex partner in the previous 12 months, which could have implications on STI transmission between populations.

      Group sex is understudied among heterosexuals. This cross-sectional survey was conducted at a sexual health clinic in Melbourne, Australia, and aimed to identify factors associated with group sex among sexually active individuals. Our findings showed that meeting partners at sex venues such as brothels had the highest odds of participating in group sex and that group sex was strongly associated with STI positivity. Including questions on group sex in routine sexual history may be warranted for heterosexuals to gauge STI risk.

      Many patients considering hysterectomy ask about how their sexual function may change, which is difficult to predict based on current data. Given that patients undergo hysterectomy with the goal of improving different symptoms or concerns, we examined whether surgical indication was associated with change in sexual function. Most patients had a modest improvement in sexual function after hysterectomy, but factors such as age, sexual function before surgery, and duration of pelvic pain were more strongly associated with improved sexual function.

      Digital technologies now form part of many people’s sex and intimate lives via mobile phones, cameras, dating apps and social media. Although we hear a lot about the risks posed by these technologies, such as online harassment or ‘revenge pornography’, there is limited research on the benefits. Reporting on a survey of Australian adults, this study explores perceived sexual and relationship benefits and pleasures associated with use of digital technologies, as well views on risks and negative consequences.

      We conducted a retrospective study among 893 men tested for Trichomonas vaginalis in 2018–2021 at the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre. The overall test positivity was low (1%). However, the test positivity among T. vaginalis contacts (18.6%) was significantly higher than non-contacts (0.5%). This highlights the importance of partner notification, testing and management.

      Sexualised drug use (SDU) is a risk factor for STIs. In this retrospective review, we consider the way in which a question about SDU is answered. Careful attention should be paid to the phrasing of SDU questions, as they can be interpreted in a variety of unexpected ways.

      Abstract: Nicole Prause, Greg Siegle
      Problems with frequent sexual urges, sometimes called ‘sex addiction’, are thought to make responding to a real partner difficult. We assessed participants’ difficulties with sexual urges that felt out of control and pornography history. These couples in the laboratory then engaged in a genital stroking exercise while monitoring their physiology. Concerns about out-of-control sexual urges did not impair responsiveness with a partner. Viewing more pornography actually predicted more sexual responsiveness with a partner.

      COVID-19 restrictions effect sexual behaviour. We analysed sexual behaviour survey data corresponding with lockdowns and reduced restriction periods in Victoria, Australia&#x003B; finding that lockdowns were associated with more frequent physically distanced activities (e.g. virtual dates) and less restrictive periods with more frequent reports of casual sex partners and using dating apps to support face-to-face activities. The importance of intimate connections for wellbeing should be considered within public health measures toward reducing COVID-19 transmission.

      Since pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV became available through the Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in 2018, questions remain about how people use PrEP in the real world outside the clinical trial setting. This study found that people who stopped taking PrEP were more likely to attend general practices with fewer patients prescribed PrEP and live in socio-economically disadvantaged areas, both typically outside of inner city high-prevalence gay areas. GP education and health promotion could be increased in these areas.

      Young people are encouraged to have chlamydia tests&#x003B; however, few studies have looked at the characteristics of those who do or do not undergo testing. In a population of sexually active young Australian women, testing was most likely in those without a partner or who reported a history of chlamydia infection. Women engaging in heavy episodic drinking and/or recent cannabis use were also more likely to be tested. In contrast, testing was less likely in overweight/obese women in a stable relationship.

      Data from online personal (and sex-seeking) ads are often publicly available, allowing researchers to use these data to better understand the topics discussed and potential role of online ads in sexual health and risk behaviours. Findings from our study on this topic among 12 866 unique ads suggest that online ads contain information that may help to inform sexual health and HIV prevention efforts, including regional and gender variations in how sex and substance use topics are used in personal ads.

      COVID-19 may have presented a unique ‘circuit breaker’ opportunity to reduce the incidence of gonorrhoea in the community. Our study shows that the reduced rates of detection of gonorrhoea has been sustained 18 months since COVID-19 restrictions commenced. As COVID-related restrictions ease in Australia while service disruptions related to COVID-19 remain, ongoing health promotion to engage high-risk populations to test and treat for sexually transmissible infections could lead to a sustained reduction in infections.

      Trans people experience differential health outcomes and care access compared to cisgender persons. This research demonstrates how transphobia, negative primary care experiences, and other socio-demographic factors significantly associate with trans patients’ perceptions of primary care providers. Efforts towards decreasing societal transphobia, encouraging familial support and education, alongside increasing provider knowledge through medical education is necessary to improve health outcomes for trans people.

      We surveyed 215 participants attending the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre and found that the median time for self-taking anoropharyngeal swab was 8 s (IQR = 5–12), and the time did not differ between oropharyngeal gonorrhoea positivity and oropharyngeal chlamydia positivity.

      Abstract: Sarah Stuart, Daniel Richardson, Collins Iwuji, Suneeta Soni
      Sampling for gonorrhoea from the pharynx is important to maintain antimicrobial resistance surveillance&#x003B; however, the sensitivity of pharyngeal culture is poor. We gained consensus from our local sexual health network of clinicians on the time spent taking pharyngeal gonorrhoea culture. From an anonymous survey of 98 clinicians, the estimated mean time was 4.63 s (s.d. ± 2.04) and there were no differences in clinician years of experience. We are now using these findings to design an educational tool with the aim of improving pharyngeal gonorrhoea culture sensitivity.

      We provide evidence that reproductive-aged women are in support of testing, partner notification and treatment for chlamydia, but knowledge about expedited partner therapy (EPT) is low, with the exception of those working in the healthcare field.
