A Charity Organisation has taken to the media to share a piece of advice concerning COVID-19 and Sex.
According to the Terrence Higgins Trust, it is advisable to put on a mask during sex and avoid kissing during sexual intercourse to avoid the risk of the novel coronavirus.
Also, the charity added that partners should avoid face-to-face contact during sex, washing hands before and after, and limits themselves to one partner.
However, people having sex with anyone outside their household should wear a face mask and avoid kissing during intercourse to prevent getting coronavirus.
Doing the above will, however, reduces the risk of spreading and contracting the novel coronavirus.
The sexual health charity said research showed 84% of people abstained from sex with anyone they did not live with during lockdown, but it is now “not realistic to ask people to avoid sex indefinitely”.
Dr. Michael Brady, the charity’s medical director, said:
“Sex is a very important part of life. That’s why, as the pandemic continues, we all need to find ways to balance our need for sex and intimacy with the risks of the spread of coronavirus.”
“But we hope by issuing this advice we will help people to manage the risks of COVID-19 while also being able to have and enjoy sex.”
