Publisher Description

This study explores sexual health risk attitudes among women aged 50 and older. Focus group research found that women 50+ are aware of the risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), but are uncomfortable about seeking health information from their regular physician who may erroneously believe that they already possess the knowledge. Although they know the importance of condom use in avoiding STDs, they may avoid negotiating condom use with their partners in an effort to avoid conflict or rejection. The results highlight a need for greater focus on women 50+ who continue to pursue active sex lives. **********
