Adolescents were assessed by ACASI for demographics variables, psychological constructs, and sexual risk taking attitudes and behaviors.

Odds ratios, adjusting for gender, found this behavior was associated with alcohol (AOR = 2.33, 95% CI [1.1, 4.7]) and drug use (AOR = 3.45, 95% CI [1.9, 6.1]), unprotected vaginal (AOR = 4.71, 95% CI [1.9, 8.4]) and anal sex (AOR = 4.77, 95% CI [1.3,17.1]) in the last 90 days, more lifetime vaginal (AOR = 3.65, 95% CI [2.0, 6.8]) and anal sex (AOR = 2.74, 95% CI [1.5, 4.8]), greater sexual sensation seeking (AOR = 2.92, 95% CI [1.5, 5.7]) and greater depression (AOR = 2.06, 95% CI [1.2, 3.6].

The goals of this study are to examine HIV/STI risk behaviors and related constructs among African American adolescents who have used the Internet or chat rooms to find sex partners.

Similar to studies among MSM, this information will help describe the relationship between online sexual risk behaviors in a group at risk for infection with HIV and STIs, and it can also inform future online STI/HIV prevention efforts targeted to black youth.

The 4 selected cities are in regions of the United States with high HIV/AIDS rates, similar population sizes, and a high concentration of African American youth living at or below poverty level.

Participants were recruited from community-based organizations with after school programs (21%), street outreach (9%), respondent driven sampling (15%), participant referral (29%), and referral from adults in the community (14%).

For example, studies among MSM have found that those who seek sex partners online have greater HIV risk behaviors such as more partners, more anal sex, more unprotected sex, and greater drug use (Garofalo et al. Recently published data from African American teens in 4 U. cities who were predominantly low-income youth (75% eligible for a free or reduced-price school lunch) showed that the Internet was used daily for a variety for purposes: social networking (60.4%), Instant Messaging (53.4%), and to find facts or learn (46.9%).
