Violence, Coerced Sex and Condoms

Sometimes abuse comes in the form of sexual violence —pressuring partners into sex, rape or forcing partners not to use condoms. This type of violence, especially if the sex is condomless, opens up victims to STDs and HIV infections. Past data has shown that violence plays a factor in HIV infections among Black women.
