dc.description.abstract This paper describes coping mechanisms used by commercial sex works and their partners in confronting the threat of HIV/AIDS. Data are part of a study exploring sexuality and HIV-related issues among members of the Durban commercial sex industry. Participants were 100 female sex workers, 25 male trucker driver clients and ten male personal partners. The implications of these coping strategies for HIV education, message development and intervention in the commercial sex industry and in general are discussed. en
