Women are far more likely to catch AIDS from an infected partner than a man. Sex normally causes microscopic tears in the lining of the vagina.


While true, keep in mind that studies have found that it takes 500-1000 acts of unprotected vaginal intercourse with an infected man for a woman to become infected. Anal sex is FAR riskier, with only one or two acts required to infect, on average.

Simply put, the risk for an insertive man (with intact genital tissue) is essentially zero. The risk for a woman receiving vaginal sex is remote. The risk for an anal recipient is very high. (All for unprotected sex with an infected partner.)

Agreed, the point I was making was women are more at risk than men. And I can also assure anals sex is not simply somethign that men on men do... lots of men/women couples engage in it as well.

Women by very nature are more at risk from sex with an infected man, than a man is from sex with an infected woman. Just the way it works.
