Eligibility

You can participate in this study if all of the criteria below apply to you:

  • You identify as male*

  • You have a primary male* partner, e.g., a boyfriend, partner or husband

  • You are currently taking PrEP

  • You are aged 18 years or older

We are recruiting participants in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

*We welcome participation from trans men with primary cisgender male partners.

Participation involves taking part in a confidential, conversational-style interview at a time and place of your choosing. To ensure we collect the responses accurately, we seek your permission to digitally record the interview using an audio-recorder.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked questions about your use of PrEP and the safe sex strategies you practice, your relationship with your primary partner, and about your sex life including any sex you may have with casual sex partners. It will take approximately 1 hour to complete. Some questions are personal and explicit, but you do not have to answer any questions that make you uncomfortable.  You will also be asked whether you consent to participate in a second, optional follow-up interview which will be scheduled 6 to 12 months after your first interview.

We will offer you a $30 store voucher for each interview you complete (up to $60) for your time and contribution.

If you would like to discuss this research or schedule an interview, please leave your contact information here and a researcher will call you back very soon. Alternatively, you can contact the research team directly: James MacGibbon on j.macgibbon@unsw.edu.au or 0424 062 292.
