Sexual Networking Analysis in the Context of International Circulatory Migration: Exploring an Analytic-Perspective Gap on Mobile Population’s Sexuality.



The current analytical perspectives on the sexual networking, specifically in the context of  differential sexuality risk committal of mobile groups in their various destinations appear rather narrow. Specifically, it has to a large extent omitted what the geo-transportation perspective analysis of that concept stands to offer both theory and intervention on sexual behaviour of mobile population groups. To exemplify its position, this paper employed the risky sexuality data of Lagos-based international traders to explore the geo-transport perspective of the network concept in order to demonstrate its analytical utility.  It examined the extent to which traders’ act of engaging sexual partners at destinations varies among the regions of visit. It went further, using the sequential order of traders’ trips to explore some novel but useful analyses on risky sexuality, including the monitoring and intervention potentials inherent in the matrix depiction of sexuality risk statistics of internationally mobile population groups.
