SEX AND CORONAVIRUS:
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

During 2020 the coronavirus pandemic has devastated the entire world. In addition to the health consequences that it has brought with it, the presence of the virus has meant a before and after in our social reality.

In Spain, specifically, we have gone through absolute confinement and we have had to learn to apply and coexist with all the security measures established to avoid massive transmission of the virus and protect ourselves and those who matter most to us. Measures such as the mandatory use of a mask, social distance and constant hygiene have become commonplace during our day to day life, causing changes in the way we behave and relate to each other.

In this sense, sexual relations, like any other type of social contact in these times, is possible and safe if prevention measures are respected.

sex yes but With precaution

Guaranteeing safe sex in times of covid does not mean that it is necessary to wear a mask in our meetings. However, we can and must take certain precautions in the organization of our sexual relationship.

  • Hygiene is essential. As with condom use, maintain good hygiene before and after sex is always essential to guarantee a healthy erotic practice. However, it is important to remember that one of the best ways to prevent covid is cleanliness and personal hygiene.
  • If there is a stable sexual partner, have sex only with her (whether cohabiting or not). Even if it is an open relationship, it is highly recommended to limit sexual contact with the reference partner, to prevent transmission of the virus.
  • In the case of the fuck buddies The same recommendation applies: reduce sexual contact with that person, in this way we contribute to preventing contagion. Being non-cohabitants, it is important to take into account the contact groups of that person and assess the risk (the more social contact the greater the risk of transmitting the virus).
  • If we are looking for a casual sexual partner, it is important reduce the immediacy of the encounter. Get to know that person in another way and assess the risk before personal contact.
  • Take into account factors such as asymptomatology. Just because you don’t have symptoms doesn’t mean you don’t have the virus.
