What are the odds?

Hi. I'm a heterosexual male and I was wondering if anyone knows the exact statistical risk of catching HIV from an HIV positive partner by a hand job, oral sex, intercourse, and anal sex during PROTECTED vs. UNPROTECTED sex?  What are those odds if the partner's status is "unknown".  

And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female?  What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world?  There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...

Exact statistics in HIV do not exist, only "ballpark" estimates.  If a latex condom is properly used for sex, the odds of acquiring HIV are zero.

Use a condom for anal and vaginal sex and don't share IV works with other IV drug users and you won't have to worry about the odds of contracting HIV.
