What would happen if HIV were to be cured tomorrow? Would condoms go out of business?

What are the good and the bad effects of having a hiv vaccine?

Would people then go out having unprotected sex without any fear of diseases because they feel safe that a vaccine is now available?

Would condoms be out of business? Never to be sold again?

    People don't intentionally become infected with any STI, just because it can be cured.  Condoms were around long before HIV was an issue.

    And of course, there is the minor issue of pregnancy...

    The purposes of condoms are also for birth control as well as protection from diseases (not just HIV)
