Unsafe Sexby John Tighe
"Unsafe sex" refers to unprotected sexual activities that put people at risk for HIV infection. It consists of activities that involve the exchange of body fluids, including blood, semen, vaginal secretions or breast milk. Researchers believe HIV can be transmitted through pre-ejaculate, the fluid released from the penis before ejaculation. While other fluids, such as saliva, urine and tears may contain HIV, it is generally believed that the quantity of HIV in these body fluids is not sufficient to transmit the virus.
