The transmission of HIV is not always as simple as having unprotected sex. The virus does not jump from one person to another at any opportunity it gets. The transmission of HIV from female to male is much lower, than for instance male to male or male to female. During normal intercourse, where the mucouse membranes are not torn, like with anal penetration, the risk is very lower.
