With regard to unprotected heterosexual contacts, estimates of the risk of HIV transmission per sexual act appear to be four to ten times higher in low-income countries than in high-income countries.  In low-income countries, the risk of female-to-male transmission is estimated as 0. 38% per act, and of male-to-female transmission as 0. 30% per act; the equivalent estimates for high-income countries are 0. 04% per act for female-to-male transmission, and 0. 08% per act for male-to-female transmission.  The risk of transmission from anal intercourse is especially high, estimated as 1. 4–1. 7% per act in both heterosexual and homosexual contacts.  While the risk of transmission from oral sex is relatively low, it is still present.  The risk from receiving oral sex has been described as "nearly nil"; however, a few cases have been reported.  The per-act risk is estimated at 0–0. 04% for receptive oral intercourse.  In settings involving prostitution in low-income countries, risk of female-to-male transmission has been estimated as 2. 4% per act, and of male-to-female transmission as 0. 05% per act.
