“Come over, no one’s home,” probably the most exciting five-letter phrase for all of us. Well, thanks to the on-going lockdown, nowadays everyone’s home! And if you’re a live-in relationship or just got married, you couldn’t have asked for more, right?
A survey by a relationship health app has found relationships seem to be blooming during the lockdown. While the social restrictions and financial uncertainty caused by Coronavirus pandemic have increased stress, anxiety, and conflict among individuals and their relationships, the extra time under lockdown that couples are spending together is helping them bond better.
Before that testosterone kicks in and you go firing on all cylinders, you need to keep some things in mind because this time it’s not just about the both of you; it’s the bloody coronavirus as well.
Is it really safe to have sex?
As per Dr. Eric Mizuno, MD, Weiss Memorial Hospital, Chicago, “Coronavirus doesn’t appear to be sexually transmitted” as he told the Healthline. However, it is still not confirmed if sexual acts exactly contribute to the spread of the disease in any manner or not.
Talking about the possible consequences of indulging in sexual activity with Healthline, Dr. Felice Gersh, MD, author of ‘PCOS SOS: A Gynaecologist’s Lifeline said, “The intercourse itself isn’t what’s spreading the virus. It’s the fact that your bodies are so close together. “If you had the flu — which is widely known not to be a sexually transmitted infection — and had sex with someone, they’d probably get the flu, too.”
The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released recommendations for people to maintain a safe distance of at least six feet from each other even if they are not exhibiting symptoms. But is it a full stop for all the things kinky? Don’t lose heart as Dr. Gersh says that indulging in sexual activities with your live-in partner is relatively safer than making love with some new.
These couples need to determine whether the additional transfer risk that comes with having sex is worth it for them.Dr Felice Gersh, MD, author of ‘PCOS SOS: A Gynaecologist’s Lifeline
“It’s different to have sex with a live-in partner or someone you’re self-quarantining with than it is to have sex with someone who you don’t know very well and who has to travel to get to you. “These couples need to determine whether the additional transfer risk that comes with having sex is worth it for them. The less face-to-face contact, the better. However, she warns to avoid anal play as the virus has a high chance of being transmitted through fecal matter.”
Well, as the world turns lights off and gets ready for bedroom action, the internet has predicted that when the lockdown and isolation guidelines are lifted, there would be an expected baby boom. And if the netizens are to be believed, the babies born during the pandemic would be christened ‘Coronials.’ LOL!
