Yesterday, we heard the news that new lockdown rules were going to mean that it was illegal for people from different households to have sex with each other and now it’s come out that you might even need to wear a mask when engaging in sexual activity in the future.
The new study was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, with Dr Jack Turban saying the following:
For some patients, complete abstinence from in-person sexual activity is not an achievable goal.
In these situations, having sex with persons with whom they are self-quarantining is the safest approach.
Those unable to take this approach may benefit from risk reduction counselling, which has proven effective in other realms of sexual health.
Patients should also be provided with information about how to reduce the risk for other sexually transmitted infections as well as the importance of continued use of contraceptives during this time to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
Other precautions include wearing a mask, avoiding kissing, showering before and after, and cleaning the space well with soap and alcohol wipes.
It’s also recommended to avoid sexual practises involving the risk of faecal-oral transmission or involving semen and urine.
Yeah I mean that kinda sounds like it’s taking the fun away from having sex in the first place really doesn’t it? Not really sure how many people are even going to wanna get deep down and dirty like that – whether it’s with a random or their partner who they haven’t seen for ten weeks – as it kinda makes the whole process super sterile and unsexy.
To be honest though, is anyone even keeping to those rules, and even if they are the way things have been going post Dominic Cummings, I doubt anyone is going to, do you? Just let people bone each other again, at least give them that.
