Different studies yield different stats.

The Padian study put the risk at 1in 8,000.

The New England J. or Medicine buts it between 1 in 1666 to 1 in 3333.

As you stated, other folks place different stats on this risk.

The bottom line is this:

1. HIV is a fragile, and difficult virus to transmit. More so from female to male.

2. The chance of being infected from a ONE TIME encounter are low, but very real.

Hence, don't play the percentage came. Be safe 100% of the time.
