In brief: Sex and drugs

Straight people can get infected by sharing needles or through sex.
Women can be infected through vaginal or anal sex with an infected male partner. Straight men can get infected through sex with women, especially if they're uncircumcized and/or have genital ulcers. Straight men can also get infected by having sex with men, since "straight" describes orientation, not behavior.
