This chapter builds on chapters 3 and 4 by focusing more centrally on how AIDS has shaped intimate sexual relationships in Bwaise. It presents the author’s fieldwork with an unusual support group for HIV-positive men to provide insight into how men themselves grappled with living with HIV. It then examines men’s sexuality more broadly, presenting a wide range of evidence for the persistence of masculine sexual privilege in the age of AIDS.

Keywords:   masculinity, sexuality, HIV/AIDS
