Where does transmission occur for bottoms and tops
      04/21/06 05:34 AM

Does anyone know exactly how the virus transmits between bottoms and tops?

I can understand how it happens in the bottoms case, the intestinal wall absorbes all types of things, however what about the just inside the sphincter? Could you theoretically become infected through being rimmed by someone with a high viral load, or someone playing with your anus with infected cum on their finger?

How long does the virus live outside the body? If it was either in blood or cum, then I would imagine this fluid would nurture it as long as it didn't dry out.

Also what about the top? Is the virus only spread via the urethral orifice, or can it be transmitted via the glans as well?

What can happen if the condom doesn't go all the way down to the base of the penis?
