Abstract

We examined associations between intimate partner forced sex (IPFS) and HIV sexual risk behaviors among physically abused Black women. Women aged 18–55 in intimate relationships were interviewed in health clinics in Baltimore, MD and St. Thomas and St. Croix, US Virgin Islands (USVI). Of 426 physically abused women, 38 % experienced IPFS; (Baltimore = 44 and USVI = 116). USVI women experiencing IPFS were more likely to have 3+ past-year sex partners (AOR 2.06, 95 % CI 1.03–4.14), casual sex partners (AOR 2.71, 95 % CI 1.42–5.17), and concurrent sex partners (AOR 1.94, 95 % CI 1.01–3.73) compared to their counterparts. Baltimore women reporting IPFS were more likely to have exchanged sex (AOR 3.57, 95 % CI 1.19–10.75). Women experiencing IPFS were more likely to report their abuser having other sexual partners in Baltimore (AOR 3.30, 95 % CI 1.22–8.88) and USVI (AOR 2.03, 95 % CI 1.20–3.44). Clinicians should consider the influence of IPFS on individual and partnership HIV sexual risk behaviors.
