According to Zachary Kussin for The New York Post. “A new study from researchers at Harvard University says that hooking up carries some risk for transmitting COVID-19 from one partner to the other, and recommends – among other practices – wearing a face mask while doin’ it.”
So, Harvard needed a study to figure out that ‘hooking up carries some risk for transmitting COVID-19 from one partner to the other?”
“The research, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, ranked frisky situations based on how likely it is to catch coronavirus while in the act.”
Has the Annals of Internal Medicine published anything since 1955?
“Researchers recommend wearing a mask for the riskiest sexual scenario: Sex with people other than those with whom one is quarantined.”
Now, I’m not what you’d call a sexual expert, but I am pretty sure there are many, many sexual scenarios that are riskier than having sex with people other than those with whom one is quarantined.
“If you have an out-of-house coronavirus crush, the study says that – besides keeping your mask on – you should avoid kissing, as well as any oral-to-anal act, and anything that involves semen or urine. Shower before and after, and clean the space with alcohol wipes or soap.”
These scientists are all really just romantics at heart, aren’t they?!
“The study also mentions that having sex with people who are together in quarantine is safer, but there is still a risk.”
You don’t say.
Did these guys enlist Captain Obvious in their study?
“For instance, if one partner goes outside to run an errand and is exposed to the virus, they can transmit it to the other. Even if that person is ultimately an asymptomatic carrier, they can still infect the other.”
Wow. Thank for clarifying that situation for us all!
“The safest approach to sexual activity, according to the researchers, is not having any.”
I’m just speechless at the clarity of this scientific determination!
“Abstinence, they say, is ‘low risk for infection, though not feasible for many.’ Another option, they add, is masturbation.”
Oh…, these guys are good!
This just keeps getting better and better!
“Other recommendations have come out since the coronavirus outbreak in the US, with some of them providing graphics to enhance the lessons.”
This is all getting way too weird.
“In April, the Oregon Health Authority released a sex guide that went viral, just weeks after the same happened to one released by the NYC Department of Health.”
Here are a couple of the “Sex with coronavirus” videos, in case you’re interested.
Stay thirsty my friends…, but don’t share that bottle!
