Although many studies have assessed the prevalence of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among men practicing anal sex with other men, less is known regarding men who practice heterosexual anal sex (HAS) with women. This paper sought to better define the role of HAS among heterosex-practicing men and the associations with aggressive personality type, drug use, and Internet media use. A picture of HAS among men has emerged that shows it is related to drug use, aggression, and co-occurring sex with men. Through understanding men who practice HAS, we can better provide prevention and risk reduction services to men and women who are at increased risk of HIV and STDs, but who otherwise might not be appropriately identified.
