Abstract

Although limited available data suggest that AIDS is currently less common among lesbians than among heterosexual women, this study suggests considerable HIV-risk behavior among our sample of lesbians and bisexual women. In addition, a majority of respondents, including women at risk, do not use safer-sex practices.
