  • The goal of this study was to obtain an in-depth understanding of how individuals’ perceive their experiences with risky sexual behaviour. Narrative inquiry and an analysis of narratives were used to explore four participants’ experiences. Three broad common themes emerged from a thorough analysis of the participants’ interviews: a) conceptualization of risky sexual behaviour, b) factors affecting risky sexual behaviour, and c) perceptions of self. The findings from the current study are carefully explicated and subsequently integrated with previous research. Finally, the implications of these findings, as well as opportunities for future research, are discussed.
