THE HUMAN QUESTION #6169

Besides vaginal intercourse, how else can you get infected with the HIV virus?

Anal sex

Explanation

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Infection primarily happens through unprotected sex when infected semen, vaginal fluid or blood comes into contact with the mucous membranes of the partner. In practise, this means the vagina or anus. It is also possible to become infected through ejaculation into the mouth, but less likely, because the natural enzymes in spit attack the virus.
