Karger AG, Basel. Introduction: This paper reports a preliminary study into the commitment and academic confidence of male students in undergraduate psychology, prompted by our own observations of the performance of male students and the literature on sex differences in education. Method: Using an analytical survey, level 1 psychology students at a new university…. Is higher risk sex common among male or female youths?
There are several studies that showed the high prevalence of high-risk sexual behaviors among youths, but little is known how significant the proportion of higher risk sex is when the male and female youths are compared. A meta-analysis was done using 26 countries' Demographic and Health Survey data from and outside Africa to make comparisons of higher risk sex among the most vulnerable group of male and female youths.
Random effects analytic model was applied and the pooled odds ratios were determined using Mantel-Haenszel statistical method. In this meta-analysis, 19, male and 65, female youths who reported to have sexual intercourse in a month period were included.
The overall OR demonstrated that higher risk sex was ten times more prevalent in male youths than in female youths. The practice of higher risk sex by male youths aged years was more than fold higher than that of their female counterparts. Similarly, male youths in urban areas, belonged to a family with middle to highest wealth index, and educated to secondary and above were more than ninefold, eightfold and sixfold at risk of practicing higher risk sex than their female counterparts, respectively.
In conclusion, this meta-analysis demonstrated that the practice of risky sexual intercourse by male youths was incomparably higher than female youths. Future risky sex protective interventions should be tailored to secondary and above educated male youths in urban areas. Sex Steroid Actions in Male Bone. PubMed Central. Sex steroids are chief regulators of gender differences in the skeleton, and male gender is one of the strongest protective factors against osteoporotic fractures.
This advantage in bone strength relies mainly on greater cortical bone expansion during pubertal peak bone mass acquisition and superior skeletal maintenance during aging. Genetic mouse models have also demonstrated a direct role for androgens independent of aromatization on trabecular bone via the androgen receptor in osteoblasts and osteocytes, although the target cell for their key effects on periosteal bone formation remains elusive.
Low serum estradiol predicts incident fractures, but the highest risk occurs in men with additionally low T and high SHBG. Still, the possible clinical utility of serum sex steroids for fracture prediction is unknown. It is likely that sex steroid actions on male bone metabolism rely also on extraskeletal mechanisms and cross talk with other signaling pathways.
We propose that estrogens influence fracture risk in aging men via direct effects on bone, whereas androgens exert an additional antifracture effect mainly via extraskeletal parameters such as muscle mass and propensity to fall. Given the demographic trends of increased longevity and consequent rise of osteoporosis, an increased understanding of how sex steroids influence male bone health remains a high research priority. Sex hormones and the elderly male voice. The objective was to describe influences of sex hormones on the male voice in an elderly cohort. Sixty-three elderly males were recruited to undergo assessment of voice parameters, stroboscopy, voice-related questionnaires, a blood draw, and an ultrasound examination of the laryngeal skeleton.
The group was divided into men with normal hormonal status and men with lowered levels of sex hormones, called hypogonades. Depending on the level of androgens, voice parameters did not differ. In subjects with decreased levels of estrogens, a significant increase in mean fundamental frequency, as well as changes of highest and lowest frequency plus a shift of the frequency range could be detected.
We could detect significant changes of voice parameters depending on status of estrogens in elderly males. Androgens appear to have no impact on the elderly male voice. To our knowledge, this is the first prospective study that correlates sex hormones with voice parameters in elderly men. Published by Mosby, Inc. All rights reserved. Male sex determination: insights into molecular mechanisms.
Disorders of sex development often arise from anomalies in the molecular or cellular networks that guide the differentiation of the embryonic gonad into either a testis or an ovary, two functionally distinct organs. The activation of the Y-linked gene Sry sex -determining region Y and its downstream target Sox9 Sry box-containing gene 9 triggers testis differentiation by stimulating the differentiation of Sertoli cells, which then direct testis morphogenesis. Once engaged, a genetic pathway promotes the testis development while actively suppressing genes involved in ovarian development.
This review focuses on the events of testis determination and the struggle to maintain male fate in the face of antagonistic pressure from the underlying female programme. In this study we found that to year old males averaged 3. We found 1 the "g" factor underlies both the…. A new public health context to understand male sex work. Researching male sex work offers insight into the sexual lives of men and women while developing a more realistic appreciation for the changing issues associated with male sex work. This type of research is important because it not only reflects a growing and diversifying consumer demand for male sex work, but also because it enables the construction of knowledge that is up-to-date with changing ideas around sex and sexualities.
This paper discusses a range of issues emerging in the male sex industry. Notably, globalisation and technology have contributed to the normalisation of male sex work and reshaped the landscape in which the male sex industry operates. The Internet has reshaped the way that male sex workers and clients connect and has been identified as a useful space for safer sex messages and research that seeks out hidden or commonly excluded populations.
We argue for a public health context that recognises the emerging and changing nature of male sex work, which means programs and policies that are appropriate for this population group. Online communities relating to male sex work are important avenues for safer sexual messages and unique opportunities to reach often excluded sub-populations of both clients and male sex workers.
The changing structure and organisation of male sex work alongside rapidly changing cultural, academic and medical discourses provide new insight but also new challenges to how we conceive the sexualities of men and male sex workers. Public health initiatives must reflect upon and incorporate this knowledge. Correlates of unprotected sex with female sex workers among male clients in Tijuana, Mexico.
Participants underwent psychosocial interviews, and were tested for HIV, syphilis Treponema pallidum , gonorrhea Neisseria gonorrhoeae , and Chlamydia Chlamydia trachomatis. Of men, median age was 36 years , Ethnic composition was Half Factors independently associated with unprotected sex with FSWs were using drugs during sex , visiting the same FSW, being married, and being unemployed.
Tailored interventions to promote consistent condom use are needed for clients, especially within the context of drug use and ongoing relations with particular FSWs. HIV prevention interventions for young male commercial sex workers. The sex industry, where men sell sexual services to other men or women, has grown in recent years. These men who offer sexual services are particularly vulnerable to HIV infection due to such factors as: frequency of risky sexual practices, number of sex partners, drug-taking, prevalence of sexually-transmitted infections STI and their specific situation of social exclusion which may hinder access to health services.
These multi-faceted realities faced by sex workers explain the burgeoning interest in new avenues of scientific research. There are too few preventive programs however aimed at this population group and the studies that evaluate their effectiveness are fewer still. In this article we survey more recent studies on the difficulties of implementing programs for HIV prevention in male sex workers MSW , as well as the studies that have gauged the impact of preventive programs in this group.
Aging and sex hormones in males. In men the slow, physiological decline of serum testosterone T with advancing age overlaps with the clinical condition of overt, pathological hypogonadism. In addition, the increasing number of comorbidities, together with the high prevalence of chronic diseases, all further contribute to the decrease of serum T concentrations in the aging male. For all these reasons both the diagnosis of late-onset hypogonadism LOH in men and the decision about starting or not T replacement treatment remain challenging. At present, the biochemical finding of T deficiency alone is not sufficient for diagnosing hypogonadism in older men.
Coupling hypogonadal symptoms with documented low serum T represents the best strategy to refine the diagnosis of hypogonadism in older men and to avoid unnecessary treatments. Neonatal abstinence syndrome NAS is a postnatal opioid withdrawal syndrome. Factors associated with development of the syndrome are poorly understood; however, infant sex may influence the risk of NAS.
Our objective was to determine if infant sex was associated with the development or severity of the syndrome in a large population-based cohort. This retrospective cohort study used vital statistics and prescription, outpatient, and inpatient administrative data for mothers and infants enrolled in the Tennessee Medicaid program between and Multivariable logistic regression models were used to evaluate the association between male sex and diagnosis of NAS, accounting for potential demographic and clinical confounders.
NAS severity, as evidenced by hospital length of stay, was modeled by using negative binomial regression. Adjustments were made for the following: maternal age, race, and education; maternal hepatitis C infection, anxiety, or depression; in utero exposure to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and cigarettes; infant birth weight, small for gestational age, and year ; and the interaction between opioid type and opioid amount.
Male infants were more likely than female infants to be diagnosed with NAS adjusted odds ratio, 1. However, there was no sex -based difference in severity for those diagnosed with NAS. Treatment of NAS should be tailored to an infant's individual risk for the syndrome. Clinicians should be mindful that male sex is an important risk factor in the diagnosis of NAS.
Sexual behaviors in male sex workers in Spain: modulating factors. This study analyzed how the culture of origin, educational level, sexual orientation, and experience of male sex workers may mediate their commercial sexual behaviors. A total of Spanish agency male sex workers were interviewed. Most of them were young men, Latin American, homosexual, and had middle-level education. Our results showed that cultural differences and sexual orientation could influence male sex workers when engaging in sexual behaviors with their clients.
Social and health projects with male sex workers may have to take into account sexual myths and taboos related to sexual orientation and cultural differences. Sex steroid levels in XY males and sex -reversed XX males , of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss , during the reproductive cycle. Levels of E2 were undetectable through the year in both groups of trout. In conclusion, the androgenic and oestrogenic profiles of sex -reversed XX males were similar to those observed in XY males.
Male sex workers who sell sex to men also engage in anal intercourse with women: evidence from Mombasa, Kenya. To investigate self-report of heterosexual anal intercourse among male sex workers who sell sex to men, and to identify the socio-demographic characteristics associated with practice of the behavior. Two cross-sectional surveys of male sex workers who sell sex to men in Mombasa, Kenya. Male sex workers selling sex to men were invited to participate in surveys undertaken in and A structured questionnaire administered by trained interviewers was used to collect information on socio-demographic characteristics, sexual behaviors, HIV and STI knowledge, and health service usage.
Data were analyzed through descriptive and inferential statistics. Bivariate logistic regression, after controlling for year of survey, was used to identify socio-demographic characteristics associated with heterosexual anal intercourse. We found unexpectedly high levels of self-reported anal sex with women by male sex workers, including selling sex to female clients as well as with their own partners. Further investigation among women in Mombasa is needed to understand heterosexual anal sex practices, and how HIV programming may respond.
The article reviews past and recent research on male sex work to offer a context to understand violence in the industry. It provides a critical review of research to show, first, the assumptions made about male sex workers and violence and, second, how such discourses have shaped thinking on the topic. The article presents a case study and…. This study tests whether or not there are sex differences in judgments of the success of various male and female lifestyles, and if so, what differential standards are applied to males and females.
The most interesting result of this study is that college men and women use the same standards to judge the success of male lifestyles but different…. Sex mosaics in a male dimorphic ant Cardiocondyla kagutsuchi. Gynandromorphy, or the development of organisms with a combination of male and female morphological features, is common in Hymenoptera. The underlying mechanism is likely associated with the sex -determination system, and studying this phenomenon should lead to a deeper understanding of both embryonic development and sex determination.
The reproductive capabilities of gynandromorphs hereafter, sex mosaics remain unclear. We studied gynandromorphy in the Malaysian ant Cardiocondyla kagutsuchi, which has sex mosaics of queens gynandromorphs; mosaic of queens and winged male and workers ergatandromorphs; mosaic of worker and wingless ergatoid male. These sex mosaics were classified into seven morphological categories. Most individuals had more male than female body areas. Relative DNA quantities showed that both female and male regions contained haploid and diploid nuclei, irrespective of their phenotypic appearance, indicating that external appearance did not reflect internal tissues.
Nearly one third of the adults were sex mosaics and they were not infected with Wolbachia. Our results suggest that the production of sex mosaics in this species does not pose a substantial cost to colonies and that the underlying causes are therefore not strongly selected against. This paper examines PWID in Delhi who also have male-to-male sex with a focus on overlapping HIV risk behaviours and the psychosocial correlates of a history of male-to-male anal sex.
We analysed data collected in April-May of from a community-based sample of male PWID in Delhi obtained using time location sampling. Chi-square tests revealed that a history of anal sex with men was associated with a higher number of female sexual partners and sharing of needles and syringes. Additionally, unprotected sex at last sex with a male partner was significantly associated with unprotected sex at last sex with regular and paid female partners.
Male-to-male sex was associated with psychosocial vulnerability, including a longer history of injecting drug use, suicidal ideation and socio-economic disadvantage.
Male mutation rates and the cost of sex for females. ALTHOUGH we do not know why sex evolved, the twofold cost of meiosis for females provides a standard against which postulated benefits of sex can be evaluated1. The most reliable benefit is sex 's ability to reduce the impact of deleterious mutations2,3. But deleterious mutations may themselves generate a large and previously overlooked female-specific cost of sex.
Consequently, male gametes may give progeny more mutations than the associated sexual recombination eliminates. Here I describe computer simulations showing that the cost of male mutations can easily exceed the benefits of recombination, causing females to produce fitter progeny by parthenogenesis than by mating. The persistence of sexual reproduction by females thus becomes even more problematic. The article explores pathways to male transactional sex , focusing on entering, soliciting practices, role of pimps, client characteristics, and negotiations.
Little scientific literature exists regarding male transactional sex in India, who represent a high-risk group for HIV infection. Case studies with 10 men who engage in transactional sex were conducted, who were recruited using purposive snowball sampling and interviewed at a social service organization. Participants differed in their sexual identity, sex roles, soliciting practices, and clients. Most of them listed economic crisis as their reason for entering transactional sex.
Strategies to find clients included self-solicitation and referrals, while pimps played a major role in solicitation, negotiations, and events of crisis. The relationship among men who engage in transactional sex , pimps, and clients involves points of negotiation, opportunities, and limitations.

HIV prevention should focus on identifying and addressing the groups' unique needs and working with pimps on risk-reduction strategies and crisis interventions. The sex ratio F:M in the same population of oyster, Crassostrea gigas at the commencement of the study was The sex reversal rate in two- year -old oysters was Specifically, female to male sex reversal rate was The sex reversal pattern of C. Male lifespan and the secondary sex ratio. Literature speculating on the fetal origins of later life morbidity often invokes the "damaged cohort" theory, i.
A rival, or "culled cohort," theory posits that exogenous shocks to gravid females induce spontaneous abortions of frail male fetuses, leaving relatively hardy survivors who enjoy, on average, lifespans longer than males in less stressed birth cohorts. A recent test based on archival data from Sweden supported the culled cohort theory. Several characteristics of the Swedish data, however, raise questions regarding the external validity of the findings. We repeat the test with data from Denmark, Iceland, and England and Wales. We use time-series methods that control for trends, seasonal cycles, and other forms of autocorrelation that could confound the test.
None of the results supports the "damaged cohort" theory. Consistent with the Swedish findings and with evolutionary theory, we find support in Iceland and England and Wales for the "culled cohort" theory. We discuss the implications of our findings for basic research as well as for public health. Sex perceptions, or more particularly, sex discriminations and sex categorisations, are high-value social behaviours. They mediate almost all inter-personal interactions. The two experiments reported here had the aim of exploring some of the basic characteristics of the processes giving rise to sex perceptions.
Experiment 1 also showed that when hands are sexually ambiguous observers tend to classify them as male more often than female. Observers are conservative in their judgements of targets as female but liberal in their judgements of targets as male. These data, combined with earlier reports, suggest the existence of a sex -perception space that is cue-invariant. Vitamin D metabolism, sex hormones, and male reproductive function. The spectrum of vitamin D VD -mediated effects has expanded in recent years , and VD is now recognized as a versatile signaling molecule rather than being solely a regulator of bone health and calcium homeostasis.
One of the recently identified target areas of VD is male reproductive function. The VD receptor VDR and the VD metabolizing enzyme expression studies documented the presence of this system in the testes, mature spermatozoa, and ejaculatory tract, suggesting that both systemic and local VD metabolism may influence male reproductive function. However, it is still debated which cell is the main VD target in the testis and to what extent VD is important for sex hormone production and function of spermatozoa. This review summarizes descriptive studies on testicular VD metabolism and spatial distribution of VDR and the VD metabolizing enzymes in the mammalian testes and discusses mechanistic and association studies conducted in animals and humans.
The reviewed evidence suggests some effects of VD on estrogen and testosterone biosynthesis and implicates involvement of both systemic and local VD metabolism in the regulation of male fertility potential. Effects of sex chromosome aneuploidy on male sexual behavior. Park, J. Incidence of sex chromosome aneuploidy in men is as high as Behavioral studies using animal models of these conditions are rare. In order to eliminate possible differences in levels of testosterone, all of the subjects were castrated and received testosterone implants prior to tests for male sex behavior.
The results implicate novel roles for sex chromosome genes in sexual behaviors. To assess the role of sex chromosome aneuploidy on sexual behavior, we used mice with a spontaneous mutation on the Y chromosome in which the testis-determining gene Sry is deleted referred to as Y - and insertion of a Sry transgene on an autosome.
Mice with an additional copy of the Y - chromosome XYY - had shorter latencies to intromit and achieve ejaculations than XY males. Transactional sex and the challenges to safer sexual behaviors: a study among male sex workers in Chennai, India. Biello, Katie B. Few studies from India have documented HIV risk factors and motivations for sex work in this population.
Between and , a community-based convenience sample of MSW in Chennai south India completed a baseline risk assessment as part of a behavioral intervention. We report medians and proportions, and Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney and chi-square tests are used to examine differences between sex work and sexual behavior measures by income source.
Participants were engaged in sex work for 5. Sixty-four percent reported ever testing for HIV and The most common reasons for starting sex work were money Participants reported 8. Compared to participants with an additional source of income, those whose only source of income was sex work reported more male clients in the past month Nearly Three-quarters reported having experienced difficulty using condoms with clients. Money appears to be a driving factor for engaging in sex work and condomless sex with clients.
HIV prevention interventions with MSW should focus on facilitating skills that will support their ability to negotiate sexual safety in the context of monetary disincentives. HIV, syphilis infection, and sexual practices among transgenders, male sex workers, and other men who have sex with men in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Objectives: To establish the prevalence of HIV, syphilis, and sexual risk behaviour among three groups of men who have sex with men in Jakarta, Indonesia, and to investigate sexual links between these men and broader heterosexual populations. Methods: Anonymous, cross sectional surveys among community recruited transgender and male sex workers and self recognised men who have sex with men MSM were undertaken in mid in Jakarta, Indonesia. Places where transgender and male sex workers sell sex and where men go to meet non-commercial male sex partners were mapped.
Probability samples were selected for the sex worker populations, while a mixed probability and convenience sample was drawn for self recognised MSM. Blood was drawn for HIV and syphilis serology and community interviewers administered a standardised questionnaire. Some Conclusion: HIV has reached substantial levels among transgender sex workers, and is not negligible in other MSM groups. Risk behaviour is high in all subpopulations, and bisexual behaviour is common, meaning the threat of a wider epidemic is substantial.
Prevention programmes targeting male-male sex are needed to reduce this threat. Risk of HIV infection among male sex workers in Spain. Methods: In this study we analysed all male sex workers who visited HIV testing clinics in 19 Spanish cities between and The information was obtained during examination by means of a brief questionnaire. For repeating testers, only the last confirmed result was taken into account. HIV prevalence was Conclusion: Because of the high risk of HIV infection, male sex workers should be the target of specific preventive activities. Preventive and healthcare strategies that are culturally adapted to migrants are required.
This investigation compared Dutch same- sex parent and different- sex parent households on children's psychological well-being, parenting stress, and support in child rearing. It was also assessed whether associations among children's well-being, parenting stress, and support in child rearing were different in the two household types.
Matching was used to enhance similarity in background characteristics between both types of families. No significant differences were found on children's well-being, problems in the parent-child relationship, being worried about the child, or the use of formal and informal support between mothers in same- sex and different- sex parent households or for fathers in same- sex and different- sex parent households.
Regarding perceived confidence in child rearing, fathers in same- sex parent households and mothers in different- sex parent households felt less competent than their counterparts. Neither the associations between children's well-being and the predictors parenting stress variables nor those between support and the predictors parenting stress and children's well-being differed along household type.
In this population-based study, the similarity in child outcomes regardless of household type confirms the results of prior investigations based on convenience samples. These findings are pertinent to family therapists, practitioners, court officials, and policymakers who seek information on parenting experiences and child outcomes in female and male same- sex parent families. Chinmo prevents transformer alternative splicing to maintain male sex identity.
Reproduction in sexually dimorphic animals relies on successful gamete production, executed by the germline and aided by somatic support cells. Female-specific expression of Sex -lethal Sxl causes alternative splicing of transformer tra to the female isoform traF. In turn, TraF alternatively splices dsx to the female isoform dsxF.
Loss of the transcriptional repressor Chinmo in male somatic stem cells CySCs of the testis causes them to "feminize", resembling female somatic stem cells in the ovary. This somatic sex transformation causes a collapse of germline differentiation and male infertility. We demonstrate this feminization occurs by transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of traF.
Consistent with this, we show that both Vir and Fl 2 d are required for tra alternative splicing in the female somatic gonad. Our work reveals the need for transcriptional regulation of tra in adult male stem cells and highlights a previously unobserved Sxl-independent mechanism of traF production in vivo.
In sum, transcriptional control of the sex determination hierarchy by Chinmo is critical for sex maintenance in sexually dimorphic tissues and is vital in the preservation of fertility. Behavioral and psychosocial correlates of anal sex among male clients of female sex workers in Tijuana, Mexico.
Most studies of heterosexual sex risk practices have focused on condomless vaginal sex despite evidence that condomless anal sex has a significantly higher risk of HIV transmission. The present study focused on male clients' anal sex practices with female sex workers FSWs in Tijuana, Mexico, where an HIV epidemic is growing among high-risk groups. Logistic regression analyses were used to identify psychosocial and behavioral correlates of anal sex among male clients.
In a multivariate model, anal sex with a FSW in the past 4 months was associated with bisexual identification, methamphetamine use with FSWs, repeat visits to the same FSW, higher scores on perceived stigma about being a client of FSWs, and sexual compulsivity. The male handicap: male -biased mortality explains skewed sex ratios in brown trout embryos. Juvenile sex ratios are often assumed to be equal for many species with genetic sex determination, but this has rarely been tested in fish embryos due to their small size and absence of sex -specific markers.
We artificially crossed three populations of brown trout and used a recently developed genetic marker for sexing the offspring of both pure and hybrid crosses. Families with high survival tended to produce balanced or male -biased sex ratios, but SR was significantly female-biased when survival was low, suggesting that males sustain higher mortality during development. Our findings have implications for animal breeding and conservation because skewed sex ratios will tend to reduce effective population size and bias selection estimates. Sex differences in job orientation found by Manhardt were explored to determine if they still exist, or if a trend toward similarity as found in studies on traits and behaviors prevails.
Implications for personnel managers in handling differences on job orientation of males and females are discussed. Examines how African-American alternative masculine behaviors are expressed within same- sex peer groups and friendships. It is proposed that African-American males have adopted an alternative style of masculinity to cope with social and interpersonal pressures, even though it can sometimes be dysfunctional and associated with negative…. Examines the tendency of men to engage in domestic violence and sexual exploitation and presents male sex -role acquisition as a process of psychosocial violence against young boys, which creates a sense of shame, powerlessness, self-alienation, isolation from others, and retaliatory rage and inhibits capacities for intimacy and mutuality.
This study examined associations between reports of receiving education on topics commonly included in sex education e. Cross-sectional data from males participating in the National Survey of Family Growth were analyzed. Bivariate and multinomial logistic regression analyses adjusting for confounding estimated associations between receipt of seven sex education topics e. Education on sexually transmitted diseases Exposure to a larger number of sex education topics is associated with young men's report of dual contraception use at the last sex.
Comprehensive sex education, focusing on a range of topics, may be most effective at promoting safer sex among adolescent males. Published by Elsevier Inc. Visually judging the sex of another can be achieved easily in most social encounters. When the signals that inform such judgements are weak e. The present aim was to examine whether this male bias depends on expertise. It was thus found that: i observers of own-race stimuli were more likely to report the presence of males and absence of females, however ii observers of other-race stimuli—while still tending to accept stimuli as male—were not prone to rejecting female cues.
Finally, iii male -biased measures did not track the relative frequency of targets or lures, disputing the notion that male bias derives from prior expectation about the number of male exemplars in a set. Findings are discussed in concert with the pan-stimulus model of human sex perception. Although indoor male sex workers MSWs have been found to engage in lower rates of HIV risk behavior with clients than street-based MSWs, few studies have examined the motivations behind such practices.
We interviewed 30 MSWs working for the same escort agency regarding their safer sex practices with clients and their reasons for these. As in other research, MSWs reported little risk behavior with clients. Five motivational themes related to safer sex on the job emerged: health concerns, emotional intimacy, client attractiveness, relationships, and structural work factors. Results suggest that participants engaged in rational decision-making relative to sex with clients, facilitated by reduced economic incentive for riskier behavior and a supportive social context.
MSWs desired a safe sexual work place, personal integrity, and minimal negative consequences to personal relationships. Collaborating with sex work employers to study their role in encouraging a safer workplace may be important to future research. Motivational influences on the safer sex behavior of agency-based male sex workers. The scent of inbreeding: a male sex pheromone betrays inbred males. Inbreeding depression results from mating among genetically related individuals and impairs reproductive success. The decrease in male mating success is usually attributed to an impact on multiple fitness-related traits that reduce the general condition of inbred males.
Here, we find that the production of the male sex pheromone is reduced significantly by inbreeding in the butterfly Bicyclus anynana. Other traits indicative of the general condition, including flight performance, are also negatively affected in male butterflies by inbreeding. Yet, we unambiguously show that only the production of male pheromones affects mating success.
Thus, this pheromone signal informs females about the inbreeding status of their mating partners. We also identify the specific chemical component hexadecanal probably responsible for the decrease in male mating success. Our results advocate giving increased attention to olfactory communication as a major causal factor of mate-choice decisions and sexual selection. Sex of the GP years on. Previous research with the Australian Morbidity and Treatment Survey showed significant differences in general practitioner characteristics and patient mix of male and female GPs. Even after adjusting for these, it was seen that male and female GPs managed different types of medical conditions.
The proportion of female GPs increased from This study investigates whether differences remain two decades later. Whether GP sex was an independent predictor of problem types being managed, or management methods used, was tested using multiple logistic regressions and Poisson regression. Adjusted differences in clinical activity of male and female GPs.
After adjustment, compared with male GPs, females recorded more RFEs about general and unspecified issues and endocrine, female genital, pregnancy and family planning problems; and fewer concerning the musculoskeletal, respiratory, skin and male genital systems. After two decades, even with increased numbers of female GPs, the differences in problems managed by male and female GPs remain, and will probably continue.
Female GPs use more resources per encounter, but may not use more resources in terms of annual patient care. Factors associated with self-reported unprotected anal sex among male sex workers in Mombasa, Kenya. A structured questionnaire was administered using handheld computers. Factors associated with self-reported unprotected anal sex with male clients in the past 30 days were identified and subjected to multivariate analysis. Other associated factors included drinking alcohol 3 or more days per week AOR, 1.
Only HIV programs in Africa need to consider and develop specific prevention strategies to reach this vulnerable population. Do males pay for sex? Sex -specific selection coefficients suggest not. Selection acting on males can reduce mutation load of sexual relative to asexual populations, thus mitigating the twofold cost of sex , provided that it seeks and destroys the same mutations as selection acting on females, but with higher efficiency.
This could happen due to sexual selection-a potent evolutionary force that in most systems predominantly affects males. We used replicate populations of red flour beetles Tribolium castaneum to study sex -specific selection against deleterious mutations introduced with ionizing radiation. We found no evidence for selection being stronger in males than in females; in fact, we observed a nonsignificant trend in the opposite direction.
This suggests that selection on males does not reduce mutation load below the level expected under the hypothetical scenario of asexual reproduction. Additionally, we employed a novel approach, based on a simple model, to quantify the relative contributions of sexual and offspring viability selection to the overall selection observed in males. We found them to be similar in magnitude; however, only the offspring viability component was statistically significant. In summary, we found no support for the hypothesis that selection on males in general, and sexual selection in particular, contributes to the evolutionary maintenance of sex.
Date palm Phoenix dactylifera L. Female date palm plants are of economic importance as they bear the fruit. Therefore, sex identification at an early stage is highly desirable. DNA-based markers are useful for early sex detection. In this chapter, we describe male -specific sequence-characterized amplified region SCAR markers to identify sex in date palm at the seedling stage. Genomic DNA is isolated separately from both male and female date palm genotypes.
Based on this amplification pattern, the sex of date palm seedlings can be predicted. Scores were not…. Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields; male infertility and sex ratio of offspring. Concern is growing about exposure to electromagnetic fields and male reproductive health. The authors performed a cross-sectional study among military men employed in the Royal Norwegian Navy, including information about work close to equipment emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, one- year infertility, children and sex of the offspring. Infertility increased significantly along with increasing self-reported exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.
In a logistic regression, odds ratio OR for infertility among those who had worked closer than 10 m from high-frequency aerials to a "very high" degree relative to those who reported no work near high-frequency aerials was 1. Similar adjusted OR for those exposed to a "high", "some" and "low" degree were 1. In all age groups there were significant linear trends with higher prevalence of involuntary childlessness with higher self-reported exposure to radiofrequency fields.
However, the degree of exposure to radiofrequency radiation and the number of children were not associated. For self-reported exposure both to high-frequency aerials and communication equipment there were significant linear trends with lower ratio of boys to girls at birth when the father reported a higher degree of radiofrequency electromagnetic exposure.
Psychosocial factors in association with condom use during commercial sex among migrant male sex workers living in Shenzhen, mainland China who serve cross-border Hong Kong male clients. About Information on each of the MSWs was collected using a questionnaire that covered his personal characteristics and his work background, self-assessed general health status, and use of health and social services.
Scales were included in order to assess attitudes towards condom use, knowledge about safe sex , perceptions about the risk of getting HIV, individual self-efficacy, and locus of control. The questionnaire also asked each respondent to rank his level of agreement with interactive strategies for gaining client compliance with safe sex practices. In terms of their self-identity, out of the 30 MSWs who answered the question, 10 of them Alcohol and drug consumption and unsafe sexual practices were relatively low among the MSWs.
Of the 31 MSWs responding, 21 of them A variety of differences were found between the study's 17 street sex workers sex workers who offer their services in public places such as streets and parks and the 14 independent sex workers sex workers who are self-employed, advertise and manage their own business, and have an exclusive location for their commercial sex work. The street MSWs were younger and had less formal education. Independent MSWs were economically more settled, had been working longer in the sex industry, and were more comfortable about having sex with men.
Independent MSWs were also more likely to report a gay sexual orientation and less likely to report using alcohol, marijuana, or other substances. The differences between street MSWs and independent MSWs are important since they could influence the negotiating of safer sex practices with clients. Programs aimed at preventing. Sexually active men, who are not in a monogamous relationship, may be at a greater risk for violence than men who are sexually active within monogamous relationships and men who are not sexually active.
The current study examines changes in sexual behavior and violence in adolescence to early adulthood. HLM regression models indicate that men who transition to a monogamous, or less competitive, mode of sexual behavior fewer partners since last wave , reduce their risk for violence. The same results were not replicated for females. Further, results were not accounted for by marital status or other more readily accepted explanations of violence.

Male sex workers: practices, contexts, and vulnerabilities for HIV acquisition and transmission.
Male sex workers who sell or exchange sex for money or goods encompass a very diverse population across and within countries worldwide. Information characterising their practices, contexts where they live, and their needs is limited, because these individuals are generally included as a subset of larger studies focused on gay men and other men who have sex with men MSM or even female sex workers. Male sex workers, irrespective of their sexual orientation, mostly offer sex to men and rarely identify as sex workers, using local or international terms instead.
Growing evidence indicates a sustained or increasing burden of HIV among some male sex workers within the context of the slowing global HIV pandemic. Several synergistic facilitators could be potentiating HIV acquisition and transmission among male sex workers, including biological, behavioural, and structural determinants. Criminalisation and intersectional stigmas of same- sex practices, commercial sex , and HIV all augment risk for HIV and sexually transmitted infections among male sex workers and reduce the likelihood of these people accessing essential services.
These contexts, taken together with complex sexual networks among male sex workers, define this group as a key population underserved by current HIV prevention, treatment, and care services. Dedicated efforts are needed to make those services available for the sake of both public health and human rights. Evidence-based and human rights-affirming services dedicated specifically to male sex workers are needed to improve health outcomes for these men and the people within their sexual networks.

Moreover, studies among male sex workers in Asia often do not explore migration contexts of these men. The objective of this exploratory study is to examine the prevalence and correlates of heavy alcohol use among migrant and non-migrant male sex workers in Bangkok and Pattaya, Central Thailand.
Measures were adapted from previous studies in similar populations and included structured questions across four domains, including demographic characteristics, alcohol use, stimulant use, and sexual behaviors. Multivariable logistic regression assessed the independent associations between heavy alcohol use heavy versus not heavy and demographic characteristics, stimulant use and sexual behavior.
Heavy alcohol use was prevalent among one-third of participants. How to make a sexy snake: estrogen activation of female sex pheromone in male red-sided garter snakes. Vertebrates indicate their genetic sex to conspecifics using secondary sexual signals, and signal expression is often activated by sex hormones.
