dumb condom question

    So I'm wondering if when having protected anal sex with a condom, if the condom does not break, leak or slip off, etc during sex and no semen drips out or anything, is it still possible for either partner to be infected with HIV? I know that protected sex with condoms can still lead to infections if things go wrong (break, etc) but if everything went well with no problems, is there still a risk? Part of me is saying yes, but another part is saying no because if nothing broke or leaked then there wouldn't be any way for the HIV virus to be transmitted. I just don't see how physiologically in that case how an infection could still happen.

    I appreciate your thoughts!

    You're right, its not possible unless you have a cut or sore above from where the condom ends, even then, its rare, as his anal juices would have come into contact with the air, which would kill the virus in seconds.

    People love to chat rubbish about micropores in latex through which the HIV virus can be transmitted, but this is rubbish, as although latex has micropores, many layers of latex are used for one condom so they all overlap, solving the micrpore issue.

    As long as the condom is put on properly, kept on and intact AND TAKEN OFF PROPERLY, then you are cool.
