In brief: Fresh blood / semen

Sex, especially anal intercourse, and needle sharing for drug abuse.
The blood supply for transfusion is basically safe. Dark talk about AIDS being transmitted in other ways is disinformation.

In brief: HIV transmission

HIV is primarily a sexually transmitted disease, but transmits well with the sharing of needles as occurs with injection drug use.
Hopefully you're not in an unsafe environment for any of that. It's extremely important to TALK with partners and buddies about possible behaviors that could get YOU in trouble. HIV is completely preventable with knowledge. Try looking on-line at some resources-CDC.gov
