After reading this thread I am quite puzzled. Until now I have believed
infection with HIV depends mostly on an individuals cirumstances of
living. That is in most cases on his or her sexual habits regardless of
colour of skin or sex. 
As males of all colours tend to have more sexual partners than females
testosterone indirectly but definitely plays a significant role in
achieving infection with HIV. 
Afterall, this will not help a female who is having unsafe sex with an
infected male, will it?
