One study in Chengdu in southwest China showed that MSM-selling were 6.4 times more likely to have HIV infection than other MSM . For example, a study in Shenzhen in south China found lower HIV prevalence among MSM-selling (4.6%) than other MSM (7.0%; P = 0.03) .
Along with the inconsistent data on HIV risk among MSM-selling, there are few studies among Chinese MSM who buy sex (MSM-buying).
