ACON, a community health organisation, has released a statement on ‘Casual Sex & Social Distancing’.
It’s subtly-not-so-subtly telling us to refrain from sexual activity.
Yep, it’s time to press pause on the bonk, you guys.
“With the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, we strongly encourage everyone to not engage in casual sex at this time.
“Touching and kissing are key areas for transmission, and direct personal contact is a risk for transmission”, the statement reads.
“While COVID-19 is not a sexually transmitted infection, physical contact during sex carries a risk of transmission.”
To reiterate, this is NOT a sexually transmitted disease!
Don’t go telling people that please.
It seems simple enough, saliva can transmit it.
So no tonguing!
No hand holding!
Imagine my old Indian grandma in the bedroom with you with her disapproving eyes.
Play it safe, guys.
