Fay W. The purpose of this study was to explore correlates of sexual sensation seeking SSS in a sample of rural African American cocaine users. Respondent-driven sampling was used to recruit participants from two impoverished rural counties in eastern Arkansas. Consistent with previous investigations, SSS scores were associated with being younger, being male, having more sexual partners, and having more unprotected sexual encounters in the previous 30 days.
Multiple regression revealed SSS was correlated with number of oral sex acts, transactional sex exchanging sex for food, shelter, drugs, money, or other commodities , and Addiction Severity Index ASI drug composite.
SSS continues to demonstrate a strong association with sexual risk behaviors in diverse populations, including vulnerable groups like this community. Interventions to reduce unsafe sexual behaviors among high-risk groups, including drug users and individuals who engage in transactional sex, should incorporate approaches that include high sensation seekers' needs for novelty and variety.
As the related epidemics of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted infections STI continue to evolve, rural populations have been increasingly identified as disproportionately affected, particularly ethnic minority individuals in rural areas.
HIV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia have been noted as increasingly prevalent in rural populations since , and there is a substantial disparity in infection rates for all of these diseases among African Americans in both predominantly urban and predominantly rural states Boyer et al. However, the issue of SSS and its relationship to sexual risk behavior is somewhat understudied in rural populations, especially rural minorities.
