The Production of Military Sexuality: Sexual Risk Behavior and HIV in Foreign Military Personnel

a lunch talk by Michael Anastario

April 27, Friday
12:30 to 1:45 pm

Michael Anastario, CSGS Visiting Scholar

Military personnel worldwide are becoming increasingly regarded as a population that is at risk for HIV infection and other Sexually Transmitted Infections. Despite current public health programs, there is little understanding of how the military occupation is itself implicated in the sexual risk behaviors of soldiers. A grounded theoretical framework can be used to better elucidate how the military occupation is linked with the sexual risk behavior of soldiers employed in it. It also reveals conflicting discourse(s) and the multiple stakes evident in the production of military sexuality. Conducting sexual risk research using a grounded theoretical framework has applied and theoretical value – it directly informs HIV prevention efforts, and it illustrates some of the social mechanisms by which individuals in a population make sense of their sexual behavior.
