In this paper, multiple choices of sensitive questions model on two-stage sampling was employed to carry a survey on MSM in Beijing, and corresponding formulas were applied to calculate the statistical indicators. The results showed that 87.83 percent of MSM didn’t have commercial sexual behavior. The anal sex is the main way of sexual behavior which rate is 64.45%. The MSM in Beijing are associated with high risk factors for HIV infection such as high chance of mobility, lack of physical examination, commercial sexual behavior.
