According to a sexual health charity The Terrance Higgins Trust, it published and suggested that people should avoid kissing, wear a face covering and choose positions that aren’t face-to-face during sex.

It may sound tough, but people need to find a way “to balance our need for sex and intimacy with the risks of the spread of COVID-19”, the Trust says and wearing a face mask during sex can help reduce spread.

Staying safe
The best sexual partner during the pandemic is yourself or someone you live with, the Trust says.

Masturbation, using sex toys, or participating in phone or online sex is recommended as the safest option. That’s not to say sex is off the table, but it should ideally be with people who are part of your household.

We should still be socially distancing, but after months of the lockdown, the charity says it is unrealistic to expect people to stop having sex indefinitely.

If you are having sex with people outside of your household, it’s important to limit the number of partners, it says. And wearing facemask during sex is important.

Like with everything at the moment, be aware of any Covid-19 symptoms you or your partner might have – and isolate if you have them.

Does the virus spread through sex?

The virus can spread through saliva, mucus, or the breath of those who have it, along with contact with hard surfaces.

In March Dr. Alex is an A&E doctor and former Love Island contestant and say “If you are going to touch each other’s genitals it’s likely that you will potentially be kissing at the same time – and we know the virus is passed through saliva, ”

“Any possibility of transfer of coronavirus – from your mouth to your hands, to genitals, to someone else’s nose or mouth” increases the risk of passing on coronavirus.

That’s why the Trust recommends not kissing, wearing a face mask during sex, and favoring positions where you’re not face-to-face.

It adds the virus has been found in semen and poo, which is why you should use condoms and dams for oral sex to minimize risk.

And given we’re supposed to be doing it after most things – washing your hands for more than 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer before and after sex and wearing a face mask during sex is recommended.

The charity says it’s important to get tested for sexually transmitted infections before starting to have sex again.

“Lockdown has meant that most people have had fewer sexual partners if any at all, and now is the perfect time to be sure you don’t have an STI and to know what your HIV status is,” it says.
