Abstract

abstract :

Using the Health Belief Model as a guide, focus groups and interviews (n=35) were conducted with Black males at a Historically Black College and University. Findings suggest that norms around the expectations of men and sex relates to their sexual behavior. The study also indicates that while Black college men know they should engage in protected sex (perceived benefits), they are inclined to engage in unprotected sex if their partner is on the pill (cues to action), they don’t believe the consequences are immediate (perceived severity), and they like the feel of not using a condom (perceived barriers).
