GUIMARAES, Denise Alves et al. Difficulties associated with condom use among men and women: a talking circle experience. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.1, pp. 21-31. ISSN 1413-294X.

In this article, we identified and analyzed male condom use difficulties among 153 people, (59 men and 94 women) during a qualitative study in a medium-sized municipality in the Midwest of Minas Gerais, Brazil, using the talking circle methodology. Through the analysis of the material, low adherence to condom use was observed by the subjects participating in the research, due to perceptions related to magical thinking, gender relations as well as the sociocultural framework of the subjects. Finally, it is suggested that public policies which aim to prevent the worsening of the HIV/AIDS epidemic should be elaborated considering participative health education methodologies which promote the subjects' empowerment, so that they can not only access the information about prevention modes, but also have critical autonomy to choose and negotiate their preventive strategies.
