In brief: I hope not.

Although not the only means of getting HIV infection, sex is a major route, but there are a variety of protective mechanisms.
Many women i know have begun to carry their own condoms in order to be prepared if a new partner does not have any. Continued protection is essential until they are sure that their partner is free of disease and is monogamous. A difficult task.

Celebacy and only one healthy partner are the wisest choices. Trusting condoms and the "wisdom and controll" to use them many times don't add up to 100% prevention.
