Why do Homosexuals get HIV-AIDS more then Hetrosexuals (I know both can get it)?
- tentofieldLv 72 months agoFavorite Answer
Worldwide, HIV/AIDS is a heterosexual disease, not a homosexual one. The vast majority of people getting it do it through heterosexual sex. The main reason it showed up in the west in male homosexuals unlike heterosexuals, was that gay men did not use condoms. They didn't need to as pregnancy was not an issue. Casual sex between heterosexuals usually involved condoms.
In countries such as Australia where safe sex was promoted by all government agencies, education was widespread and condoms were available free in bars, clubs, universities (and schools on request), the rate of infection dropped considerably. Needle exchange programs and the supply of clean needles and injecting rooms cut down the infections from sharing needles among drug users.
As a consequence, the rate of infection is low and just as likely in heterosexuals as homosexuals among those who do not practice safe sex.

Do you have accurate figures?
Remember that when the AIDS epidemic started gay men were very sexually active. They had more sexual opportunities so they had more opportunities to contact the disease.

They sleep with other homosexuals who sleep with other homosexuals who sleep with other homosexuals etc, who originally slept with some African man who got it from a female prostitute, back in the 1950s. In Africa it's a majority heterosexual disease.

Because unprotected anal sex is the most high risk sexual behavior.
HIV is found in blood, semen (***), pre-seminal fluid (pre-***), vaginal fluid, rectal fluid, and breast milk. HIV spreads when one of these fluids from a person who has HIV enters the body of a person who does not. Some of the ways this can happen are through:
Anal, oral, or vaginal sex most common transmission vector
Needles, syringes, or other injection equipment
Pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding
Small amounts of blood spread during
deep kissing or oral sex—extremely rare
A woman is also much more likely to get HIV having unprotected penetrative sex than she is of giving it to her sexual partner.

Its more common in males, so it whould follow that men having sex whith other men are at a significantly higher risk.
We should practice safe sex and regular testing eitherway imo.Source(s): Gay male
