Abstract

We examined correlates of condom use among heterosexual whites, blacks, and Hispanics (ages 20-45 years) with an human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) risk factor in a community-based longitudinal sample (San Francisco; n = 716). Lag models were used to examine hypothesized antecedents of condom use at wave 2. High levels of condom use were associated with labeling one's sexual behavior as risky for HIV infection, high levels of condom enjoyment and commitment to use condoms, good sexual communication practices, gender (trend), and marital status. The results support the need for wide-ranging intervention programs that stimulate people to make personal risk assessments, teach basic sexual skills, and direct those in need of intensive help to appropriate agencies.
