I wonder if they ask women the same question.

They ask women if they’ve ever had sex with a man, who has had sex with other men.

There are a lot of related questions, which are asked of both sexes.

You can see the whole questionnaire here:

It is my understanding that those who are promiscuous with vaginal or oral sex have a rate of HIV n times more than those who are not promiscuous.

But those who practice ANAL sex have a rate of HIV transmission 100n times more than promiscuous with orgal or vaginal sex.

Thus the first question should be ANAL, regardless of other factors. The 2d question should be promiscuous / multiple partners regardless of other factors.

Well as a frequent woman blood donor, they would ask if I had slept a gay man etc, but not ask me if I had slept a gay woman.

The reasons for this is primarily that Aids is primarily transferred from male to male/female more frequent than it is from female to female/male.

I believe the woman to woman/male transfer is THIRTY THREE times LESS likely than that of male to male/female.
