God defined the rules for sexual relations in the bible. He did so for a reason. Disease is one of those reasons. That means all Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) not only aid/hiv.
One might compare the very promiscuous lifestyles today with Russian Roulette.
If you place one bullet in a revolver, spin the cylinder, point the gun to your head and pull the trigger, you have a 1 in 6 chance of killing yourself.
If you persist in improper sexual conduct you face a risk, too. The last I heard there are now some 126 STDs out in the public domain, now.
Some of them cannot be cured.
While condoms may give some protection, they are not fool proof as many who relied on them for birth control have discovered.
The only fool proof way to avoid STDs is to follow the biblical guidance regarding sexual conduct.
