Transmission of HIV and AIDS

Transmission between Gay Men

It is generally believed that AIDS can be transmitted by sex between men, via the virus HIV. However, certain practices associated with some gay sex, such as the use of nitrite inhalants by the ‘receptive’ male partner in anal sex, could possibly explain at least some cases of AIDS. The association of anal sex with HIV status and AIDS may be a confounding factor, a ‘red herring’.
