This chapter reviews sexual health HIV-prevention interventions for HIV-negative sexual minority men, focusing on interventions with empirical support with an emphasis on interventions with support from randomized controlled trials. Most interventions focus on condomless anal sex, with the goal of reducing HIV acquisition, although interventions vary in terms of format (individual, group, or online), target age and ethnicity, and outcomes. A much smaller literature exists for sexual health beyond preventing HIV. Research is needed to further test the efficacy and external validity of sexual health interventions, including with older men who have sex with men. Many of the interventions discussed in this chapter use techniques that are familiar to therapists who employ cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT). There is also a need for further work that uses the therapeutic modalities employed by most mental health professionals who practice within an empirically supported therapy orientation, such as CBT, interpersonal therapy, or behavioral therapies.
