Safety Measures for Couples During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Coronavirus and Bodily Fluids

There are speculations that the virus is present in various bodily fluids. For this reason, sexual acts like kissing and sexual intercourse may not be safe. You want to be sure that you and your partner are without the virus before engaging in sexual activities. This is easier with a partner who has been isolating in the same house as you.

Distancing and Use of a Mask

Everyone is expected to wear masks at this time and maintain a 6-foot distance from others in public places. This is to help slow the spread of the virus from people without symptoms or those who don’t know if they’ve contracted the virus. What this implies is that we should avoid kissing and engaging in other close-interaction affection outside of the home.

Respiratory Droplets and Faecal Matter

Because the coronavirus is a respiratory virus, it could spread through respiratory droplets and infect others. A recent study also found that the virus could spread through the feces of infected persons. Again, this is another reason to avoid random kisses, oral sex, and anal sex.

Coronavirus and Sexually Transmission

A Chinese study found that there have been traces of the virus in the semen of patients who recovered from COVID-19. Even if you don`t have any contact with your partner`s semen, the body contact puts you at risk. Even though flu is the most common means of transmission, having sex puts you at risk of getting the flu, due to close contact.

Having sex with a live-in partner or someone you’re self-quarantining with is different from having sex with someone who you don’t know so much or who has to travel to get to you. This could be risky. If you must have sex, here are some relatively safe styles that you may find helpful:

  • Try doing a lap dance instead
  • Try the standing doggy style
  • Explore the wheelbarrow style
  • The reverse rider on top too may work

If you are missing the intimacy of eye contact, try having sex in front of a mirror so you can still stare lovingly into each other’s eyes.

Let`s explore some more safe ways to have sex during the coronavirus pandemic.
