It has been well recognized that the spread of HIV infection is greatly facilitated when persons indulge in sexual activity with multiple partners, even in a heterosexual context. The tendency for such behaviour can be traced to circumstances and experiences during the formative years. It would be helpful to know what are the factors that might induce promiscuous sexual behaviour. This would call for a systematic sociological inquiry. In this context the author had undertaken a sociological study, profiling that the socio-cultural and behavioural pattern correlates during childhood, adolescence and adulthood that existed in a group of HIV infected heterosexual men.
