Unclear on Stats
      #168217 - 12/30/05 03:29 PM

Hello all! I am unclear on the following stats:
I read there is a 6.5 in 10,000 possibility for the insertive (top) partner to get infected from a positive receptive (bottom) partner. In other words, the risk is a 0.06%. Is this statistic based on the WHOLE act or is it based on every single time the penis is inserted into the anus? Please clarify...

The statistics are based on the WHOLE act, not per insertion. We are all thinking about you...
