Sex and Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

Here are some tips for how to enjoy sex and to avoid spreading COVID-19. 

“NYC said masturbate or fuck your roommates.”

Although not restricted to Fetish, the New York City Council has issued a wonderful sex guidance during this times of COVID-19 that can be applied anywhere in the world:

  1. Have sex with people close to you.
    1. You are your safest sex partner. Masturbation will not spread COVID-19, especially if you wash your hands (and any sex toys) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after sex.
  2. The next safest partner is someone you live with. 
    1. Having close contact — including sex — with only a small circle of people helps prevent spreading COVID-19. Have sex only with consenting partners.
    2. You should avoid close contact — including sex — with anyone outside your household. 
      1. If you do have sex with others, have as few partners as possible.
    3. If you usually meet your sex partners online or make a living by having sex, consider taking a break from in-person dates. Video dates, sexting or chat rooms may be options for you.
  3. Take care during sex.
    1. Kissing can easily pass COVID-19. Avoid kissing anyone who is not part of your small circle of close contacts.
    2. Rimming (mouth on anus) might spread COVID-19. Virus in feces may enter your mouth.
    3. Condoms and dental dams can reduce contact with saliva or feces, especially during oral or anal sex.
    4. Washing up before and after sex is more important than ever.
    5. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    6. Wash sex toys with soap and warm water.
