Harmful Ideologies of Masculinity and Sexual Encounters in Zambia in the Time of HIV/AIDS

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines how ideologies of masculinity and sexual encounters in Zambia lead to the rejection of condom use and the promotion of sexual risk-taking. This study draws upon research designed to explore the manner in which mission-educated men in Zambia constructed their sexuality and sexual practices, in order to investigate how these factors contributed to sexual risk taking and the instability of safer sex practices. The chapter discusses the implications of these ideologies and practices for HIV/AIDS prevention.

Keywords:   masculinity, sexual encounters, Zambia, men, condom use, sexual risk-taking, safe sex, HIV/AIDS prevention
