Understanding the habits and preferences of people having anal sex: Implications for rectal microbicide development

Thursday, May 14, 2009

How often do people use saliva for anal sex? What about vaginal fluid? Would people prefer a rectal microbicide that comes in a gel or a suppository? What do the answers to these questions mean for rectal microbicide development?

Join the next IRMA call to find out, and to participate in discussions that help shape the rectal microbicide development landscape.

Dr. Alex Carballo-Dieguez (Columbia University) will present his study on whether users prefer a rectal microbicide that somes in a gel or a suppository. Dr. Lisa Butler and Dr. Jeff Martin (University of California, San Francisco) will present their study on the use of saliva during anal sex among MSM. IRMA’s Marc-André LeBlanc will give an overview of the findings from IRMA’s global web survey on the use of lubricants, saliva and vaginal fluid during anal sex.

Materials will be available here in advance of the call. Check back.
