Abstract

From the start of the Aids epidemic in the UK, this project has monitored and tracked the sexual behaviour and changes which gay and bisexual men in England and Wales have made in their lifestyles in response to the growth of the HIV infection. The Diaries Project asked gay and bisexual men to keep sexual diaries, filled in on a daily basis usually over a period of a maximum of one month, giving detailed information about the content and sequence of their sexual activity, about their partners' characteristics and about the context in which the sexual behaviour occurred.
