UNSAFE SEX PREVALENT

The research on gender-based violence and masculinities in China also discovered that many men are involved in unsafe sexual behavior.

The results, released on Thursday by the United Nations, revealed that 85 percent of male respondents who had multiple sexual partners said they never used condoms during the previous 12 months before the survey.

The results were based on questionnaire interviews of about 1,000 men in a Chinese county.

During the same period, about one-third of male interviewees had sex with more than one partner, the survey found, while more than one-fifth had engaged in sex with sex workers.

Meanwhile, only 14 percent of women surveyed had ever had an HIV test.
