Abstract
MSW (male sex workers) and MSM (men who have sex with men) have long been an epidemiologic focus of HIV/AIDS and other STIs interventions. However, the overlapping population of these two identities, and this population’s sexual practices, have yet to be sufficiently studied. This study suggests that this population—M$M—reveal the multiplicity of motives of selling sex, and the blurry boundaries between commercial and non-commercial MSM, which warrants more attention from future research and interventions.
