Um...if the 'cream' fits the genital organ as good as latex in the contraception tools.... :lol:
actually if the AIDS virus is outside the host, it's easy to inactivate it...the prolem that AIDS can't e cured till now is ecause the virus is hiding inside the T-cell. Of course we don't want get out T-cell be killed right?? :D

Not very comfy though for inactivation of HIV when you consider how it is transmitted... I still prefer latex.

Not sure on the specifics, but I imagine it deforms the virus.
