Americans playing risky game of sexual roulette: survey
Oct 10 5PM US/Eastern

Americans are playing a risky game of sexual roulette, according to a new poll that found only 39 percent of respondents always ask a new lover if they are infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

The new poll by Zogby for MSNBC.com also found that 73 percent of respondents were involved in a monogamous relationship and 66 percent of those surveyed had had unprotected sex while under the influence of alcohol.

Just 39 percent of respondents to the online survey, conducted between September 12 to 16, said they always asked whether a new partner is infected with HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases.

Thirty-one percent said they never discuss the touchy issue with a new partner, according to a summary of the survey findings published on MSNBC.com.

The same survey also found that 15 percent of Americans had paid someone for sex, and 25 percent of those surveyed anonymously in the online poll had sex three times a week or more, while 20 percent made love fewer than twice a month.

Some 35 percent of respondents said they had been with between one and five sexual partners, while 19 percent said they had gone through more than 25 partners.
