The RDD survey was conducted in the Seattle area between October 2,and January 26, among residents 18 to 39 years of age with fluency in the English language who had ever engaged in vaginal, anal, or oral intercourse. Details of the survey and survey questionnaire are presented elsewhere.
We limited our analysis to the We grouped participants based on responses regarding the of sex partners of same and opposite sex. We used proportions to describe the frequency of sexual behaviors and other STI risk factors. To identify correlates of sexual behaviors and other STI risk factors by gender, and gender of sex partners, we used contingency tables with the chi-squared test to assess statistical ificance. We used the Wilcoxon test to determine statistically ificant differences in means between the different groups because the responses for each of the questions were not normally distributed.
The software package SAS was used for analyses. A total of 43 men 3.
The median proportion of lifetime sex partners of the opposite gender was 0. We defined cross-gender sexual bridging during the past 5 partnerships as a partnership with an opposite-sex partner that either preceded or followed a same-sex partnership regardless of the time interval. At the time of study, not all individuals had been in 5 partnerships and some had only 1 partnership. The frequency and type of sex acts performed with the most recent partner differed by sexual orientation Table 3. This RDD Survey is one of few studies of the sexual behavior of bisexual men and women conducted in individuals identified from the general population, and is the first we are aware of to estimate the frequency of cross-gender bridging.
Thus, bisexual men and women are at higher risk for acquiring and transmitting STIs, and are also epidemiologically important for sexual bridging between populations at relatively higher risk and those at lower risk of STIs, including HIV infection. Because we did not interview sex partners, we do not know whether individuals that have partners of both the same and opposite sex are more likely to partner with other individuals who have both same and opposite sex partners rather than individuals with only same or only opposite sex partners, which may increase their risk of STI.
The use of answering machines and mechanisms to screen and block calls from unidentified s has reduced the Sex between men women rate for RDD surveys. This occurs before screening can take place, potentially making selection biases difficult to detect. Another possible limitation is that sexual orientation was based on lifetime sex partners and may not correlate with current risk behaviors, which may result in an underestimation of risky behaviors among bisexual and homosexual individuals.
