Description: 

As rates of sexually transmissible infections (STIs) continue to rise among gay and bisexual men in Australia and internationally, information is needed on the strategies they employ to prevent and manage infection and, overall, how men understand their sexual health and well-being. In June and July 2018, 35 gay and bisexual men living in New South Wales and aged 18–73 years old took part in an anonymous online forum through which they posted about a variety of topics, including previous STIs, testing practices, using condoms, and public sexual health campaign. Five forum participants were invited to take part in in-depth interviews to delve deeper into these topics as were four doctors who provided sexual health care.
