The thing with AID's is that NOTHING stops it, holding hands and kissing are as potentially likely to expose you as having sex. And you deal with it by getting it treated (if treatable) or by abstaining if not.
First of all, it's AIDS, Accute Immmuno Deficiency Syndrome, which is caused by HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. And it can't be caugth from kissing or holding hands, and is more or less likely to be caught from different sexual acts.
And even with unprotected sex, the chance of catching it depends on what stage of the sickness the carrier is on, and at best the chance is at less than 10 percent. Not a nice chance, really, but still not a death sentence.
Also, the illness is treatable, albeit you'll be on daily medication for the rest of your life. But on the plus side, it's not a short life.
