Information about a specific sexual event can shed light on factors that facilitate or impede condom use. Data were collected by a random digit-dialing telephone survey of unmarried Latino adults in 10 states with large Latino populations. In multivariate analyses, among heterosexually active unmarried Latino men (n  = 591), those who reported having a condom available, engaging in a conversation about condoms, having a non-steady, casual partner or a one-time partner, were more likely to use condoms. Men were more likely to use condoms when no other birth control was used or pregnancy was not possible than other men. Findings were similar for both low and high acculturated men. Interventions that increase condom availability may be particularly useful for reducing HIV risk among Latino heterosexual men.

KEY WORDS: event analysis – condom use – latino – men – condom availability – language acculturation
