Myth about AIDS
HIV can infect only homosexual men and drug users
In the United States, the main route of infection for males is via homosexual anal sex, while for women transmission is primarily through heterosexual contact Nevertheless, HIV can infect anybody regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, or sexual orientation t is true that anal sex (regardless of the gender of the receptive partner) carries a higher risk of infection than most sex acts, but most penetrative sex acts between any individuals carry some risk. Properly used condoms can reduce this risk.
