To examine HIV risks among South African men who report having been sexually assaultive. METHODS: Men (N = 412) in Cape Town completed anonymous surveys. RESULTS: Twenty-three percent reported a history of sexual assault. Men who had been sexually assaultive were younger, reported more sex partners, were more likely to have a history of genital ulcers, and more likely to have exchanged money for sex. Sexually assaultive men were also more likely to endorse rape myths. CONCLUSIONS: Interventions that target men as the agents of change in reducing sexual assaults and HIV transmission are urgently needed.
