This study has me intrigued, and not just because I know the folks doing the research :P
From the Philadelphia Gay News:
Researchers from the Public Health Management Corporation recently completed a study that found that men who identify as “down low” do not pose any higher risk of spreading HIV to female partners than openly bisexual men.
The study, published in this month’s issue of the American Journal of Public Health, was created to assess the sexual practices of African-American men who identify with the down low — commonly thought of as those who engage in sex with other men without their female partners’ knowledge — and if this practice affects the high rates of HIV in the black community.
Fascinating stuff. Oh, and here I thought the gays were responsible for the world’s problems. Darn. Science. Schmience.
