ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the sexual behavior and practices of the male clients of female sex workers in Mumbai, India. It highlights the early stages of sexual debut and the experience of sex workers in engaging in sexual relationship with different partners. It provides the risk perception and use of condom with different partners, sexual acts and the influence of alcohol on sexual practices. The study indicates that the use of condom increases the level of awareness on HIV/AIDS and despite the use of condom, sex workers are more likely to have HIV infection, increasing their chances of acquiring HIV.
