Crack use and sex exchange have been identified as co-factors for the risk of HIV (CDC, 1995; Coyle, 1998). Research suggests that there is a subgroup of crack users who do not engage in sex exchange practices (Logan et al., 1999; 2000). The purpose of this paper is to report differences in HIV risk behavior among male and female crack users who do and do not exchange sex along with self-reported reasons and sex exchange practices among female crack users who are paid for sex and male crack users who report paying for sex. Also for the subgroups of crack users who do not engage in sex exchange-their reasons for not engaging in sex exchange practices.
