The prevalence of high risk sexual behaviors was assessed among heterosexual men (n=154) and women (n=109) voluntarily attending an HIV testing clinic in Jerusalem. Men were found to be involved more frequently than women in nonmonogamous relationships (66% vs. 45% respectively, P<0.001), to have more casual partners (21% vs. 11% had three or more casual partners, P<0.01), and to report passive oral sex (71% vs. 50%, P<0.01) and anal sex (23% vs. 12%, P<0.05). Condom use was not a very common practice, and was higher among men than among women (57% vs. 47% in vaginal sex, and 30% vs. 19% in oral sex respectively, NS). Appropriate counselling for this population attending the clinic is advised and urgently needed.
