A Guide To Pandemic Sex... From The Government


Staten Island comedian Pete Davidson seems to have got the NYC sex guidelines for the pandemic wrong on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. He was right about "sex but no kissing" and wrong about what he called "heiny smoocheroos," which was widely interpreted as an OK for rimming. Rimming however, is not OK.

I guess his main point was that it's hard to imagine that the government of New York City-- not the state-- is offering "some tips for how to enjoy sex and to avoid spreading COVID-19." Obviously, they recommend sex with your regular partner (husband, wife, monogamous boyfriend or girlfriend) but also note that "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 sex."

Also they are clear that rape is bad. "Having close contact-- including sex-- with only a small circle of people helps prevent spreading COVID-19. Have sex only with consenting partners. (The emphasis was their own.) "You should avoid close contact-- including sex-- with anyone outside your household. If you do have sex with others, have as few partners as possible. If you usually meet your sex partners online or make a living by having sex, consider taking a break from in-person dates. Video dates, sexting or chat rooms may be options for you." It gets steamier:
Take care during sex.

Kissing can easily pass COVID-19. Avoid kissing anyone who is not part of your small circle 
of close contacts.
Rimming (mouth on anus) might spread COVID-19. Virus in feces may enter your mouth.
Condoms and dental dams can reduce contact with saliva or feces, especially during oral 
or anal sex.
Washing up before and after sex is more important than ever.
o Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
o Wash sex toys with soap and warm water.
o Disinfect keyboards and touch screens that you share with others (for video chat, for watching pornography or for anything else).
