There's not a lot to do, but if you're lucky enough to have been quarantined with your partner - you have one way to kill time. Quarantine sex. There are a lot of concerns as to whether quarantine sex is really good for you.
So much so that the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene issued a memo to having quarantine sex - and it covers all the questions you probably ever had about it!
1. Have Quarantine Sex With People Close To You
The best thing for safely flattening the curve while staying sexually active is to have sex with someone you live with. Possibly someone you have been dating, or someone you live with - having multiple partners has a higher risk. Quarantine sex with someone you're familiar with is much healthier and advised by experts.
2. No Kissing During Quarantine Sex
Kissing is not allowed. A kiss may seem safe, but it’s in fact far more dangerous than anything else you plan on doing. It hasn’t been proven that the virus exists in semen or vaginal fluids, at least up to this point, but COVID-19 most certainly spreads through saliva.
But luckily, you don’t necessarily have to avoid kissing during quarantine sex with partners — just everyone else. Avoid kissing anyone who is not part of your small circle of close contacts,” the health department warned. If one person becomes infected, they are most likely to transmit the coronavirus to their significant other through kissing.
3. You Are Your Safest Partner
According to the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s quarantine sex memo, masturbation is the best way to stop the spread and still get satisfied.
Phone sex and masturbation are the best way to assure that no one spreads or gets the virus. With Pornhub opening up to viewers for free, in addition to donating 50,000 surgical masks to NYC-area health-care workers. Sex dolls are also a “naturally antibacterial” option.
Don’t forget to treat yourself safely: Wash your hands and any sex toys with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after sex with yourself, NYC Health advises.
4. No Anal Stuff
While it remains unknown if vaginal fluid and semen can transmit the virus, faecal matter definitely can. It’s proven that inside the stool, the virus can travel easily so it’s very important to stay away from butt stuff.
The health department specifically warns that “rimming (mouth on the anus) might spread COVID-19. The virus in faeces may enter your mouth.” If you want to, use condoms during all kinds of quarantine sex - anal or oral.
Another rule they have is to avoid going on dates and to strictly keep online dating - online. But, with lockdowns and curfews, the problem is already taken care of. But, if you want to have some quarantine sex and enjoy yourself - follow these guidelines!
