There were two important implications. The behavior of Internet cruising, on its own, insufficiently impacted MSM health.
It was the interaction of of self-efficacy and the success of those outcome-efficacy that ultimately contributed to negative health behaviors. Second, MSM may have had different intentions for cruising.
The anti-theoretical tendency for some men to continually place high s of while also reporting very low success suggested that the outcome of merely placing the might be sufficiently erotic for some men. Keywords: Craigslist; MSM; condom use; internet cruising; outcome-efficacy; self-efficacy.
