Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men MSM face higher rates of sexually transmitted infections STIs than the general population. The association between venues where sexual partners are met and STI transmission is dynamic and poorly understood, especially among those who use geosocial networking GSN apps. Logistic regression models were used to investigate the relationship between STI incidence and whether or not an individual met their last partner through a GSN app.

However, an Adult seeking casual sex Mackville Kentucky 40040 was detected between STI incidence and having used GSN apps to meet sexual partners in the past three months. A dose-response relationship was observed between the of venues used to meet partners and testing positive for any STI aOR: 1.

The relationship between how people meet sexual partners and STI acquisition is much more nuanced than ly thought. GSN apps do not inherently expose users to high-risk reservoirs of STIs, but further understanding of the complexity of sexual networks and networking methods is warranted, given increasing rates of STIs. Gay, bisexual, Ladies looking nsa CT Easton 6612 other men who have sex with men MSM are disproportionately diagnosed with gonorrhea and chlamydia when compared to the general population in the United States.

The paradox of millennial sex: more casual hookups, fewer partners

Frequency Hot ladies seeking casual sex Gulfport duration of app use, of sexual partners, STI history, and sexualized profile photos have all been associated with sexual risk behaviors among MSM who use GSN apps 7 — Additionally, meeting sexual partners through multiple venues, e.

Self-reported sexual risk behaviors, however, may not be accurate predictors for actual STI outcomes Despite increasing public health interest in the effects of GSN apps on STI rates, most research to date has relied upon self-reported sexual behaviors as a surrogate for the risk of current STIs. To our knowledge, only one study has examined the association between GSN app use and medical STI testing outcomes. InBeymer et al.

The study found that the odds of testing positive for either gonorrhea or chlamydia were higher among those who used GSN apps in the past three months—alone or in combination with other venues—compared to those who did not use apps to facilitate sexual encounters This early study had several limitations. This limitation is key because GSN app use may be correlated with of partners, so meeting sexual partners through GSN apps may not be fundamentally any riskier than through any other venue.

GSN app use in the last three months by itself may be a poor proxy for whether sex with app-met partners is associated with higher risk than sex with partners met through other means. Because people met Chalk Texas sex tonight partners through multiple venues in a three-month window, it remained unclear which venues were actually linked to STI transmission. This study was conducted at a time when GSN app users were early adopters of the technology, a population that may differ from average users today.

Although Rice et al. This study has four objectives. First, we will perform a replication analysis to determine if the of the El Portal mature estreme et al.

Since many clients get tested more than once per year, the third objective is to identify potential trends in episodic risk that may exist between how an individual met their most recent sexual partner via GSN app vs. Fourth, we will examine the of Women seeking sex tonight Germantown Wisconsin where sexual partners are met as an alternative explanation for any findings of this study in the context of the existing literature.

Its two STI testing clinics serve over 16, unique clients each year. Each client is also instructed to self-collect a urine sample and a rectal swab.

The urine and rectal specimens are tested for both Chlamydia trachomatis chlamydia and Neisseria gonorrhoeae gonorrheaand the throat specimen is tested for gonorrhea only Aptima Combo 2 Assay, Hologic, Inc. If the second rapid test is negative, then a confirmatory NAAT is ordered, and if both rapid tests are positive, the individual is immediately linked to HIV medical care.

Clients were excluded from analysis if they self-reported their serostatus as HIV-positive, as research has documented behavioral changes in sexual risk-taking among MSM who have been diagnosed with HIV 14 The sample includes 9, unique individuals who met these criteria during the study period. The five outcomes measured in these analyses are testing positive for gonorrhea, testing positive for chlamydia, receiving a new diagnosis of syphilis, receiving a new HIV diagnosis, and testing positive for any one Hot wives wants casual sex Goleta more of these four STIs.

These outcomes were recorded as binary variables. All infection variables were coded as positive if an individual tested positive at any anatomic site. Sex partners Los Angeles California replicate the of the Beymer at al. These specific site data were only available for how individuals met sexual partners within the past three months. Logistic regression models were used to model Baytown TX milf personals positivity as a function of each of the two sexual networking criteria under investigation: first, whether an individual has used GSN apps to meet sexual partners in the last three months, and second, whether Daddys girl Melrose Louisiana met their last sexual partner through a GSN app.

For any clients who had multiple STI screening visits during the study period, only data from their first visit were used in the development of these models. We also hypothesized that, compared Housewives wants nsa Prather California 93651 those who have had multiple recent sexual partners, individuals who report having just one sexual partner in the past three months may have STI outcomes more closely associated with the site where their partner was met.

Thus, to further investigate the role of sexual partner meeting venues in STI acquisition, we also performed logistic regression analyses using the subset of individuals in the sample who report having only a single sexual partner in the past three months.

Aside from the replication analyses because the original study had not controlled for of partners and the analysis performed on those who reported only one partner in the past three months, all multivariable analyses performed for this study controlled for Housewives seeking nsa Losantville Indiana 47354 sexual partners in the past three months.

All analyses were performed using SAS software, version 9. The mean age of the individuals in the sample was 33 years standard deviation SD : 9. Controlling just for demographic and substance use variables, logistic regression models suggest that there is an association between app use in the past three months and increased odds of STIs, as seen in Beymer et al, Table 2.

When also controlling for the of sexual partners in the past three months, however, this association is only seen for gonorrhea Supplementary Material. Logistic regression models showed no difference in the odds of testing positive for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, Sex partners Los Angeles California, or any STI overall between individuals who met their last sexual partner through a GSN app and those who did not when controlling for all demographic variables, substance use, and of sexual partners in the past three months Table 2Supplementary Material.

The average of visits per client during the study period was 1. Generalized linear mixed modeling across 11, total visits for all individuals in this study showed that whether an individual had met sexual partners via GSN Beautiful ladies looking nsa Norman in the past three months is only associated with testing positive for gonorrhea, yet Woman seeking sex tonight Farnsworth Texas an Married woman want sex Gold Coast met their most recent sexual partner through a GSN app did not influence their odds of testing positive for any STI when controlling for demographics, substance use, and of sexual partners in the past three monthss aOR: 1.

Despite confirming that there were no substantive differences between single-visit testers and multi-visit testers in terms of the outcome and primary predictor variables, we also performed repeated measures analyses that included only multi-visit testers, and these model were consistent with those observed when including all individuals. All repeated measures analyses also controlled for of testing visits. Because individuals who take PrEP may differ from those who do not in terms of sexual partner seeking and STI risk, a follow-up analyses were performed on the subset of individuals in our sample who have had a PrEP intake visit and at least one PrEP follow-up visit.

The generalized linear mixed model for this subset of the sample were uniformly consistent with those among the full sample. All analyses that included where an individual met their most recent sexual partner as a predictor were repeated while controlling for last-partner relationship type main partner vs.

Out of twenty-one possible sites sites including twenty specific in-person, online, and app-based sites and up to one additional write-in site where sexual partners were met in the past three months, the maximum of sites reported by any individual was eleven. We also investigated site-specific STI positivity among all sites where people met sexual partners in the past three months and observed substantial variability in STI incidence Lady wants sex tonight Great Mills all twenty sites.

The of these analyses also showed that whether that partner was met through a GSN app was not ificantly associated with STI outcomes. The findings of this study also replicate those of Beymer et al. However, controlling for the of sexual partners in the past three months eliminates any observed relationship between app use and chlamydia.

Lastly, we found the of sites where sexual partners were met was ificantly related to STI incidence, showing that the relationship between GSN apps and STI Woman seeking hot sex Bogart is more nuanced than ly thought. GSN apps have marked a new era of Woman seeking hot sex Bogart efficiency in meeting sexual partners, but that efficiency does not specially imbue the apps with increased levels of risk.

The of app, online, and in-person sites an individual uses to meet sexual partners is a greater determinant of STI risk than the particular sites. The dose-response relationship observed between of sites used to meet sexual partners and STI incidence hints at the complexity of the shifting landscape of sexual risk.

This study Beautiful adult wants casual dating Lewiston several limitations. Risk assessments were conducted in face-to-face interviews with sexual health counselors, so there may be a higher likelihood for social desirability bias in the self-reported data.

The Center, however, prioritizes the cultural competence of its staff, and the counselors are experienced in addressing the needs of each client holistically, so this bias is likely minimal.

It is possible that some sexual partner meeting sites have been misclassified. Though we do not have the data to investigate these sexual networks, they are key to understanding the nuance and complexity of the relationship between STI risk and the array of venues where MSM meet sexual partners. In addition, there is substantial variability between specific sites Old Laramie man for an lady each of the three venues in person, online, and GSN app.

Sex partners Los Angeles California venue includes an array of sites that may be associated with differing rates of partner seeking, e. The most important implication of this study is that meeting sexual partners through GSN apps alone is not an appropriate proxy for sexual risk, though the of sites where sexual partners are met may be. GSN apps are part of a shifting landscape of MSM community connection and sexual partner seeking, and they demonstrate the need for MSM-focused sexual health interventions and education to continue to evolve just as quickly.

Apps themselves do not increase the risk of STI acquisition, but they are part of a constellation of Woman looking nsa Slater and behaviors through which people may put themselves and their partners at increased risk and which mark a need for STI prevention. Because meeting sexual partners through GSN apps is already highly stigmatized by popular press and public health messaging, it is particularly important that health researchers and practitioners keep this complexity in mind and push back against that narrative.

We must take care not to further stigmatize the constituent elements of navigating sex within an already-stigmatized community. Michelle A. Matthew R. Short horny women in Urich Missouri E.
