Something more sacred ?!
As a sign of these strange times, the city’s Department of Health issued an extraordinarily blunt reminder of how to stay clean as it gets dirty during the global coronavirus pandemic.
That’s right: the government wants in your bedroom.
First of all, his list of two pages of suggestions: sex is safer for yourself.
“Masturbation will not spread COVID-19, especially if you wash your hands (and any sex toys) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after”, wrote the department.
Good news, however, “COVID-19 has not yet been found in seminal or vaginal fluid,” says the warning, adding that feces carry the virus and that sexual acts involving mouth-anal contact can spread the coronavirus.
If you have sex with another human being, make sure it is “with people close to you”, like someone you live with.
If sex with strangers is your passion, the agency suggests that “video dates, sexting or chat rooms might be the options for you.”
Condoms and detergents are more important than ever, notes the memo, which has since been removed.
