Abstract: We studied casual sexual partnerships and consistency of condom use among Dutch long-term, travelers to (sub)tropical regions. Forty-two percent of casual sexual partnerships (n = 192/462) were with local partners, of which 39% were unprotected. Fewer travelers to Sub-Saharan Africa had casual sex, but partner’s ethnicity was not significant in predicting condom use.
