Husbands contracting HIV from wives?

Why have I been unable to find any stories of husbands contracting HIV from their wives? Is it true that female to male transmission is difficult? Is that why in the music industry rappers are able to have 20 kids but avoid contracting HIV? 

I've also hear stories of men finding out their wives are HIV positive 3 years into a marriage but testing negative.

    We don't know not care. But you can get hiv from a man and woman if they have it and I have unprotected sex with them or exchanged body fluids with them. Having a large number of kids have nothing to do with it, protect yourself

    Because it's fairly rare. Unless a man has open sores on his penis (or mouth), the virus can't get in...
