The coronavirus that propelled the world into lockdown earlier this year is expected to strike again once the winter months kick in.
Since respective countries eased lockdown rules, there has been a resurgence of the virus. Numerous countries are reporting higher numbers of confirmed cases.
A second wave will force governments to call for a second lockdown. And that could cripple the global economy.
Health officials are concerned that people from different households could spread the virus by meeting up for sex.
Although social distancing rules advise against bodily contact or kissing, public health chiefs are not under any disillusion. They know people will have sex.
Now lockdown restrictions have been eased, there are more opportunities for horny couples to meet up for hanky-panky. However, there are real concerns that fornicating couples increase the risk of Covid-19 spreading.
Health officials are particularly concerned about high-risk sex hookups between strangers that meet through online sex dating websites.
In an attempt to prevent a second outbreak and a subsequent lockdown, public health officials in Canada and New York are urging their citizens to practice safe sex.
The advice provided on the BC Centre for Disease Control suggests wearing a face mask and refraining from kissing. They also suggest using a condom and washing your body with soap and water.
There are also certain positions you can use that reduce the risk of breathing on one another such a doggie and reverse cowgirl.
Health officials, however, suggest an even safer method of engaging in intercourses; “Use barriers, like walls that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact.”
In other words, Gloryholes.
How Is Covid-19 Contracted
Coronavirus is spread through liquid droplets in saliva. Fluids are also expelled in the air when a person coughs or sneezes. Phlegm can also projectile from a person’s mouth when they are talking or singing.
The Covid-19 virus is transmitted through any bodily orifice that contains fluid; mouth, nose, eyes and anus. The virus has also been found in semen and faeces but not in vaginal fluid.
If you are romantically involved with a partner or stranger from a different household, health chiefs recommend abstaining from kissing oral sex (unless with condom) and rimming.
The official recommendation for fornicating couples is to only have sex with “your next-safest sex partner”; either the person you live with or someone who only has close contact with you and nobody else.
Public health officials are most concerned about singles having sex with strangers. Gloryholes provide a solution and could create a comeback for an age-old but somewhat forgotten deviance.
Gloryholes are associated with the shady era of homosexuality and kinky pornographic sketches. Yet in a pandemic, they provide a safe venue for strangers to engage in oral and penetrative sex without face-to-face contact.
Michael Lanza, speaking on behalf of the NYC health department explained, “The key here is to limit face-to-face contact, as the virus that causes COVID-19 is spread primarily through droplets”.
An active sex life is vital to good mental wellbeing. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in The Netherlands advised residents without a permanent partner to find a sex buddy.
Singles that do not have access to a sex buddy can still arrange a sexual encounter with like-minded individuals through sex dating websites. Gloryholes may be the answer to safely satisfy your sexual needs.
