dc.description.abstractMen who have sex with men (MSM) are disproportionally affected by HIV. Although some theoretical models created to explain why individuals engage in risky sexual behavior contain an affective component, there has been relatively little focus on the influence of affect on sexual risk-taking. The goal of this study is to investigate the relationship between affect and condom use in men who have sex with men (MSM) in an archival dataset from a survey of users of a popular sex-oriented website. Multilevel modeling was used to analyze daily diary data from 2,871 MSM. At the within-person level, positive affect was positively related to risk-taking, whereas negative affect was negatively related to risk-taking. However, these results were qualified by interactions of trait affect and relationship to sex partner. These findings suggest that interventions focused on emotional regulation may have the potential to reduce sexual risk taking among MSM.en_US
