Understanding straight-identifying men who sometimes have sex with men

15 January 2020

Researchers at UCL would like to talk to men who describe themselves as straight or heterosexual, and who sometimes have sex or sexual contact with other men. Participation will involve a one-hour confidential interview in-person or over the phone. Our aim is to better understand their sexual behaviour and sexual health (including feelings about testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections), so that we can improve the sexual healthcare they're provided.


  • Males living in the UK.
  • Aged 18 years or older.
  • Describe yourself as heterosexual or straight.
  • Have had some form of sexual contact with another man in the past.
