It just seems that if pubic hair follicle transmission of HIV were possible, there would many more female-male cases, many more cases of heterosexual transmission, and even casual transmission during sports, hair cutting - after all if pubic follicles transmit the virus, why not body hair or head hair follicles? Why not more inexplicable infections?
I tried my own search before I asked - couldn’t find anything. Even tried PubMed. Why would the CDC keep it quiet?
