Homosexuality and HIV

Postby fireblaze » Sun Dec 24, 2006 4:46 pm

How does homosexual 'sex' increase the likelyhood of getting HIV. Thus why in some countries homosexual are not allowed to donate blood.

I need help with this.

same as normal sexual transmision of HIV, in homosex it can transmit via fluid. It might Anal for men and for females its rare since fluid contact is not there; until worst practice is performed....

The virus is known to live well in reproductive and digestive system. Homosexual men apply anal sex, which can transfer the virus from reproductive organs to intestine via anus.

Some more reasons:
-in anal sex people are more likely to have small scars as it is not the natural way of intercourse. An easier way of getting infected.
-if you don't have only one partner (and most of the homosexuals have more than one) , that increases the risk.
- there is no risk of getting pregnant, so they don't use condom usually.

Here in Indonesia, there's a new way on how HIV spreads :D
Some people who got HIV in their blood (but haven't reach AIDS yet), use some needles to be injected into their blood and then, they place the needles in some places (mostly in the theatre seats). So, if an unlucky man get sit on it, the needle then will get injected to that man and the HIV will enter that man's blood.....so horrible.. :(

I don't know whether it's just an issue or not, but I think prevention is the best way for it.
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?
A: They have all the solutions.

A few years ago some people said that similar things occur in my country too. Like they inject HIV+ blood when you are dancing in the disco.
