2 Quick Questions if You Please

Hi Folks,

I am new to this site and I had 2 questions:

1) What is the risk of transmitting the HIV virus through a razor cut or popped pimple (gross, I know) - if the cut happens to be located on a part of the penis (shaft) not covered by a condom - during Protected vaginal intercourse?  (I shaved 29 hours prior and I do not think I noticed any cuts, but you never know.)

2) Statistically speaking, does anyone know how many caucasion women are currently infected with HIV/AIDS in the US?  I have searched, but cannot find any statistics.

Thank you for your feedback / insight!
