Three-fourths of the New York singles questioned in a telephone survey say they have changed their sexual habits to avoid getting AIDS and one-fifth say the fear has put a damper on their social lives, New York Newsday reported. The poll by the Gallup Organization found that one-third of its respondents, both married and single, have reduced the number of sexual partners and one-third question partners more closely about their pasts. And 27% of the single women said they now insist that partners use a condom during sex.
