Referencing the article from above - the risk of HIV infection from Insertive Penile-Vaginal Intercourse 4/10,000 or about 1 in 2500 exposures. Or on average out of every 2500 raw fuck encounters with HIV positive women you would expect about 1 male to become HIV positive.shitegeist wrote:What's never made sense to me is the strikingly low risk of infection:LaudJohn wrote:I hate to say it
.. but I agree with G&T.
Very hard for a circumised male with no open wounds or STD to get HIV from an infected female. But it is still possible so covering up is the safest option.
Also I would sooner have unprotected sex with an HIV woman taking the anti-retrovirals than unprotected sex with a working girl who has not been tested.

.... compared to stats that 20% of working girls are infected and the strong anecdotal evidence for a good percentage of bargirls succumbing to AIDS. I don't have any kind of angle I''m pushing here and I'm too lazy to do the math, but WTF?
The number I used was 1 in 500 obviously states a much higher risk of HIV infection - and is probably from an older study.
I think even 1 in 2500 should get the male population of cambodia to practice safer sex by using condoms with the bar girls.
Also, having an STD greatly increases the risk of HIV transmission so guys who are patronizing the services of the bar girls and not wearing condoms are at higher risk of stds which puts them at much higher risk of HIV transmission.
Just some advice from a gay guy who saw quite a few AIDS deaths. It is a nasty nasty way to die.
