Singles in quarantine are forced to choose between possibly exposing themselves to the virus or a lack of physical intimacy. The NYC health department even released “guidelines” about sex and Coronavirus, such as “You are your safest sex partner” and “The next safest sex partner is someone you live with,” among other cringe-worthy bulletpoints. Online dating is the safest option for singles to meet each other, but how well can you really know someone without in-person contact?
Since most of us are stuck inside all day, every day, should we be replacing the pre-COVID cigarette break (or walk around the building) with something else? What I’m asking is not just should we be having more sex, but should we be doing it during the (gasp!) workday? I asked a couple of sexperts for their take.
