Clinical Trial Summary

Transgender men (TM) is the minority and difficult to reach-up group. Therefore, there is a lack of research on private issues involving TM, such as sex, eroticism, and sexual risk behavior. This study focuses on TM as the research participant, based on Milton Mayeroff's caring theory, to understand the TM's erotic culture and the sexual risks behavior, to evaluate the need for subsequent sexual health care. Mixed methods design is applied in this research to recruits participants through purposive sampling and respondent-driven sample (RDS). The first stage is an online questionnaire survey. The sample sized is estimated of 220 TMs. The time to fill in online questionnaire is about 10-15 minutes to get a preliminary understanding of the erotic and sexual risk experience of TM in Taiwan. The second stage is a semi-structured interview for 2 hours of each participant. It is estimated that 16 participants will be recruited or the recruitment will be stop when the data are saturated. The analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data can get an in-depth understanding of sex, eroticism, and sexual risk behavior experiences of TM. The research results are important for improving the awareness and identification of sexual risk and the assessment of sexual health care needs of TM. The results also serve as a reference guide for the development of sexual health care of TM, and for the implement of a gender-friendly environment of medical care.
