Aids is caught either by blood to blood contamination or by transfer of bodily fluids.

The main ways are by blood transfusion, re using medical needles ( hence the problems for drug users. ) or by sexual intercourse. It is not easy to catch.

of course in poor countries like china, africa, etc which lack the precaution measures, systems n checks n ppl r generally ignorant, they face higher risks

but in usa, it is not without their risks -
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A handful of HIV-positive porn actors called
on the adult film industry Wednesday to require that condoms be used on all film
sets, saying a recent outbreak of infections proves the industry's mandate that
performers be tested every 14 days isn't
working.


The actors spoke at a news conference called by the AIDS
Healthcare Foundation, the group that lobbied successfully last year for Los
Angeles County to adopt a condom requirement for most adult films. A U.S.
District Court upheld the law last month, but the porn industry has promised to
appeal.


"Condoms in porn is not really that crazy a thing," said Rod
Daily, who said he discovered he was infected last month. "If they do care that
much about the performers, they would use
condoms."


Industry officials have said when they tried using condoms after
an HIV outbreak nine years ago, the $7 billion-a-year business saw revenue
decline as much as 30 percent as audiences made it clear they don't want
them.


"Ultimately it's just a big industry, and their main concern is
money," said Daily, who was among six current and former porn actors to speak on
the subject.


Over the past eight years, Daily added, he has made hundreds of
films, mainly for gay audiences, and he has always used condoms in those, where
they are more accepted. Daily didn't say how he believes he became infected,
but his longtime girlfriend, porn actress Cameron Bay, learned she was HIV
positive shortly before he did.


Industry officials said of the three recent HIV infections they
have documented, none appear to have taken place during the making of a film.
They called a moratorium on filmmaking until all of the HIV-positive actors'
movie partners could be tested, but filming is set to resume
Friday.


"Unfortunately, we can't control what people do offset," Steven
Hirsch, CEO of the Vivid Entertainment Group, one of the industry's largest
filmmakers, said recently. But he added the required tests every 14 days before
an actor can work are keeping HIV from being transmitted through
films.


Bay expressed her doubts about that, saying Tuesday that in just
the three months she was in the business, during a time when she made only about
10 sex scenes, she saw numerous instances of risky
behavior.


On one shoot, she said, an actor working with her cut himself and
was allowed to continue filming an explicit scene even though Daily, who was on
set that day, would have stood in for him.


"I didn't realize how unsafe it was until I saw the pictures that
Rod showed me," she said.

....... dun ever catch it. chinese ppl r taking calculated risk if they want to play such games {:soso_e105:}
