Abstract

A cross-sectional survey of 2910 rural Indian men aged 18-40 years from five rural districts in five different states revealed that nearly 10% of single and 3% of married men had had unprotected anal sex with a man in the past year. Homosexually active men are not a separate sexual category, and report extensive mixing with female partners. They have more female partners than other men and they practised anal intercourse in 11% of their heterosexual contacts.
