When the man introduces fluids to the woman there are mucus membranes in the vagina which makes it easy to pick up all kinds of infections. A man's penis has an outerskin, no open membranes, making it harder for the infections to get through.

No, birth control is not less effective if you smoke. Some methods can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke, although the risk is still lower from being on birth control than if you got pregnant and delivered a baby.

Percentage of getting HIV after one unprotected intercourse with HIV infected?

There are quite a few factors that apply. Is it the woman that has got aids, then this does not often infect the man. If the man is infected, then he has got some rifts in his skin where the virus can get in. It is not common otherwise. A man is of course always at risk if constantly doing this with an infected woman. For a one time affair however, the risk is minute but present. I would say less than 5% For a circumsized man, the risk is even lower. If the man has got AIDS and the woman does not, then she will be at a much greater risk of getting the disease. First of all, the virus has been found in seminal fluid. This at hand when ejaculated into the vagina mean that the woman will be at risk for maybe 4-7 days after having had sex. Aids does not survive long if dry, but vagina is just about right :-/ Some magazines I read stated that approx 20-33% of woman can be infected first time by having sexual intercourse.
