This study compared sexual risk behaviors and sexually transmitted infection prevalence among African American women who have sex with women, women who have sex with men with a single male partner, women who have sex with men with 4 or more male partners, and women who have sex with women and men at a sexually transmitted disease clinic. The results suggest that, despite differences in prevalence, there was not a clear continuum of sexually transmitted infection risk among African American women in the study; all women were at risk.
