In brief: Unprotected sex

Heterosexual men can become infected with HIV through unprotected vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, or oral sex with women.

In brief: From women

Although women acquire HIV from men more readily than men from women, men certainly acquire it through heterosexual contact every day.
In high income countries, male to female infection rates are approx 0.4% per sexual encounter. Female to male infection rates are approx 0.8% per encounter. Wikipedia has a fabulous entry on hiv: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/hiv.
