    An HIV-positive New Zealand man pricked his sleeping wife with a needle tainted with his blood, infecting her with the virus, court papers have revealed.

    It is believed the man wanted to give her the virus, which leads to Aids, so she would have sex with him again, the New Zealand Sunday Star-Times reported.

    According to the documents, the man twice pricked his wife with a sewing needle tainted with his blood.

    The man has admitted infecting his wife and faces up to 14 years in jail.

    The 35-year-old man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced at Auckland High Court early next year.

    According to the court documents obtained by the newspaper, the husband discovered he was HIV-positive during health checks when the family arrived in New Zealand in 2004.

    His wife and children were not infected.

    'Sting-like mark'

    The wife said she wanted to stay with her husband for the sake of their children but refused to have sex with him for fear of contracting the disease.

    But she said that in May last year she found "a sting-like mark" on her left thigh and two days later awoke to a stinging feeling in her leg.

    She said she also saw her husband handling a syringe full of his blood.

    Four months later during a routine check-up she was told she was HIV-positive.

    She said she confronted her husband who admitted pricking her with an infected needle.

    "All he said [was] he was sorry. He said, 'I used needles on you because I wanted you to be the same as me so that you can live with me and you won't leave me'," she said in a statement.

    The husband was charged in October last year.

    Paul Ward, of the HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust, said: "This case is a tragedy for all concerned, we would condemn any situation where a person deliberately infects someone else with HIV.

    "This case is highly unusual because most people with HIV try hard not to infect others.

    "Everyone should always use a condom when they have sex whether HIV positive or negative."

    It was funny in South Park because no one could imagine anyone doing something like this. I have to admit that the joke is a lot less funny now.

    This happens in some parts of Africa all the time, it's just that it isn't the result of being sex deprived and there's rarely a needle involved.

    Quote. Of. The. Day.

    On topic: This is quite interesting. I wonder how this guy got HIV in the first place.

    And about Egonny's post...
    I think they mean the wife and kids weren't infected when the husband was first tested positive.
    (I was gonna use objection.mrdictionary.net for that one, but it seems to be down at this time of writing).

    Or he may have contracted it by cheating on her in the first place. Either way, I don't see a second honeymoon in their future.
