So you might think that it would steer clear of sex—which is, after all, the most intimate of personal relationships. Yet sex is a subject about which most societies have seen fit to make rules. In Canada, most of these rules are found in the Criminal Code, and there are strict penalties for breaking them.

Negotiating safer sex among married women has been identified as an important determinant of vulnerability or resilience to new HIV infections. The results from a complementary log-log regression model indicate that wealthier and highly educated married women were more likely to report that they can refuse sexual intercourse and ask their husbands to use a condom. In this context, involvement in decision-making may have translated into trust and risk compensation. Those who believed in HIV transmission myths were less likely to negotiate safer sex relative to their counterparts who did not hold such myths to be true.
