You may be eligible to participate in this study if you meet the following criteria:

* HIV negative
* 18-50 years in age
* Have had sex with a man in the past 6 months
* Are able to come to study visits for at least 1 year

All participants receive confidential HIV counseling and testing at no cost. Compensation is also provided.
