This paper presents perspectives of men regarding abortion, contraceptive use and sexuality. Contrary to what we had expected, men expressed anxiety over abortion and contraceptive use, not because the issues concerned women’s health, but rather because men associated them with extramarital sexual activity they thought women were concealing. To understand the meanings of sexuality and factors shaping these meanings appeared to be a necessary step in promoting women’s health.
