HIV/AIDS is less common among heterosexuals, but I'm still afraid of getting it because it's deadly. Herpes is much more common than HIV (50 million compared to about 1 million in the USA). Many people have herpes and don't realize it because they don't know what the lesions look like and it's not routinely tested for. So even though HIV is deadly and herpes is not, I still tend to fear getting herpes more because it's much more common. Even though there is a lot of public education, I don't think many people really know much about all of the various infections (statistics, diagnosis, treatment, risks). What do other people think? Do you worry about getting a particular infection, or just all of them in general? Do you just use a condom and not worry?
