Sperm and T-helpers have the same CD4 receptors, when sperm gets into microcracks in the rectum, the immune system attacks the sperm, as well as T-helpers, because they have the same receptors. It turns out AIDS, which has nothing to do with HIV. at least they told us so in honey
Regardless of gender, the risk of HIV infection is higher with anal sex without a condom than with other types of sex.
The Russian Wikipedia provides the following information on the risk of infection:
Risk of HIV transmission (per 10,000 unprotected sex)
oral vaginal anal
Introductory partner 0.5 5 6.5
Receiving partner 1 10 50
Oral contact in the article means fellatio (blowjob), according to some data, with cunnilingus the probability infection is less and even less when the genitals are stimulated by the partner's hand. Gay and heterosexual men who practice unprotected anal sex are more likely to become infected, all other things being equal, than vaginal and oral sex. Not all gay men practice anal sex, but they do it more often than heterosexuals. With lesbian contacts, the risk of infection is significantly less than with heterosexual ones.
Nevertheless, the most common route of infection in the world is heterosexual.

All registered cases of HIV infection in the world are distributed by routes of infection as follows:
- sexual intercourse - 70-80%;
- injection drugs - 5-10%;
- occupational infection of health workers - less than 0.01%;
- contaminated blood transfusion - 3-5%;
- from a pregnant or nursing mother to a child - 5-10%.
According to some data, about 15 are associated with homosexual contacts between men % of all HIV infections in the world. The homosexual route predominates over the heterosexual route in a minority of countries, including the United States and some European countries. There is a downward trend in the proportion of homosexual contacts with sexual transmission, including due to the fact that gay men have begun to use condoms more often.
In Russia, the homosexual route of infection, according to official data, makes up a negligible share in comparison with heterosexual and when injecting drug use.

According to the data provided at this link, about half of new HIV cases in Russia in 2017 are associated with heterosexual contacts.
Another 46.1% were infected while using drugs, and 2.3% - during homosexual relationships. Less than 1.5% of those infected are children born to mothers with the immunodeficiency virus.
In Russia, there are no statistics on LGBT, MSM and other sexually oriented minorities - neither in general nor in the context of certain social characteristics. The maximum there is on this topic is http://ecom.ngo/library/ibbs_russia_2017/. There are some fragments that study the root causes of HIV infection in the three most vulnerable groups - MSM, IDUs, CSWs, or in more detail - men who have sex with men, injecting drug users, commercial sex workers, but no root cause results on MSM there is not contained, so it is rather difficult to say what percentage of MSM is infected due to drug use, and what percentage is due to homosexual contact. One way or another, all three groups are quite stigmatized in Russia. It is also worth paying attention to the territorial aspect - even in this study, a greater or lesser extent of HIV absence among IDUs in the category "have used less than 5 years" in comparison with "5 years", and the indicators of St. Petersburg and Eburg dependent region of the country, see "Reference HIV infection in the Russian Federation in 2017". Perhaps, by analogy with such differences, there is also a difference in the behavior of MSM in different cities of the country - the use of a condom, the use of therapy, based on funds allocated by a constituent entity of the Federation and subsidies from the federal budget. Funding is an important issue in light of the same stigmatization, and there is hardly a significant proportion of MSM, let alone IDUs, who are able to independently finance HIV therapy.
But what is clearly certain is the high prevalence of HIV among IDUs in general, compared to MSM
Nobody gets AIDS. AIDS is an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. People get infected with the HIV virus. Yes, and gays are still inferior to the palm in infection to drug users, and in Africa, in general, most cases of infection occur in heterosexual intercourse. Moreover, now there is PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis of HIV) Truvada, which significantly reduces the number of new infections.
