Despite decades of HIV related safer sex education a number of men who have sex with men continue to engage in sexual risk behaviors and remain at risk for contracting HIV. Research has shown significant correlations between various risk factors and HIV-risk behaviors, but the exact nature of the relationship has remained unexplained. Volker Schuetz explores in his book John Bowlby''s construct of attachment as an underlying factor that could explain why some men continue to engage in sexual risk behaviors, such as unprotected anal intercourse, despite knowledge of the risk. After a thorough overview and integration of the attachment and HIV-risk behavior literature, Schuetz takes the reader into a fascinating, deeper exploration of the question how the relationship between infant and caregiver (attachment) not only influences adult romantic relationships but also could bear the roots for the underlying reason for some men to engage in unsafe sex. This book is a must read for practitioners, researchers, and anyone who wants to gain better understanding of the continuous unsafe sex practice amongst some men who have sex with men.
