What is HIV?

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that causes AIDS. This virus may be passed from one person to another when infected blood, semen, or vaginal secretions come in contact with an uninfected person’s broken skin or mucous membranes*. In addition, infected pregnant women can pass HIV to their baby during pregnancy or delivery, as well as through breast-feeding. People with HIV have what is called HIV infection. Some of these people will develop AIDS as a result of their HIV infection.

Where did HIV come from?

The earliest known case of HIV-1 in a human was from a blood sample collected in 1959 from a man in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. (How he became infected is not known.) Genetic analysis of this blood sample suggested that HIV-1 may have stemmed from a single virus in the late 1940s or early 1950s.
 

How do you have sex?

Having sex intercourse is actually quite simple.  When a man's penis becomes hard, he places it inside a woman's vagina, and moves it in and out.  This creates friction which is pleasurable for both the man and the woman.  After a while, this friction will usually cause the man to have an orgasm and ejaculate.  It may also cause the woman to have an orgasm, although it can take a bit of experimentation and practice to get it right!
You can have sex in lots of different positions, but one of the most common and intimate ways is for the man to lie on top of the woman, so that they can kiss and cuddle while having sex.
 

What is the average penis size?

Penis size differs from person to person. The average length when erect is 11-18cm (4 1/4-7in) but there maybe some variation between different cultures.
