So I'm kinda curious for real life answers. Not for statistical responses regarding fictional people represented by numbers. And I wouldn't dream of asking you guys to post in a public forum, so if you want to post the reply to a private message to me, that's totally ok. But I was just wondering...of those men/women who are logged on here with HIV, how many got it from means other than sharing needles or fluid swapping (sex without pulling out or swallowing). I am just curious and don't mean to offend or persecute anyone for their decisions. All I'm wondering is how likely transmission is without directly ingesting DNA. Awkward question, I know, and one that may even get backlash, but if it gets to be a big deal, just tell a moderator to delete this.
