Abstract This study investigated whether abuse and partner hypermasculinity influenced sexual behavior change among 46 Latinas (mean age = 34.5 years) who participated in an HIV prevention study. After completing a baseline interview, women were randomized to either an HIV prevention intervention or a health promotion control. Three months later, they took part in follow-up interviews, including an assessment of relationship characteristics. The majority (93\%) of participants reported psychological abuse from their sexual partner during the study period, and over two fifths experienced physical abuse. Contrary to expectations, sexual behavior change was not related to abuse or partner hypermasculinity. However, women in the HIV prevention condition who gave their partner higher hypermasculinity ratings reported fewer conversations regarding condoms. Moreover, most of the sexual risk reduction observed at follow-up was the result of abstinence rather than consistent condom use. The findings provide insight into the reality that characterizes the relationships of many Latinas.
