SILVA, Luís Augusto Vasconcelos da. Reduction of risks from the perspective of the practitioners of barebacking: opportunities and challenges. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2012, vol.24, n.2, pp.327-336. ISSN 1807-0310.

This article discusses a modality of barebacking (unprotected anal sex) called partial barebacking with reduction of risks. This discussion is the result of an online ethnography about the meanings and practices of barebacking, in the Brazilian context, from 2004 to 2007. This article, by focusing the reduction of risks in barebacking, brings other forms, practices, erotic possibilities of realization and understanding of the same. It's the case, for example, when some practitioners avoid ejaculate inside or receive the sperm from the partner, seek to be more receptive or insertive or keep with partners of the same serostatus. In this direction, it becomes important to discuss the possibilities and limits of alternative models of prevention used in everyday life of different people, taking into consideration sexual preferences, the dynamics of relationships, beliefs, speeches, experiences, and interactive contexts.

Palavras-chave : barebacking; reduction of risks; HIV/Aids; pleasures; homoerotism.
