The Inevitability of Infidelity: Sexual Reputation, Social Geographies, and Marital HIV Risk in Rural Mexico. For women in rural Mexico, marriage presents their single greatest risk for HIV infection. This paper draws on six months of participant observation, 20 marital case studies, 37 key informant interviews, and archival research to explore the factors that shape married women’s HIV risk. Findings show that culturally-constructed notions of reputation in this community lead to sexual behavior designed to minimize men’s social – rather than viral – risks, and that men’s love for their wives may actually increase women’s risk. We also describe the intertwining of reputation with structurally-patterned socio-sexual geographies. We conclude by proposing interventions based on sexual geographies and risky spaces, rather than risky behaviors or identities, and by underlining the structural nature of men’s extramarital sexual behavior.
