    Default Sex & Coronavirus !!

    Couples who don't live together can now meet up for sex after changes to the coronavirus restrictions in England - but casual sex is still banned.

    The guidance applies to "established" relationships, though it's not clear what counts as established.

    And the rules differ depending on where you are.

    In local lockdown areas like Birmingham or much of Greater Manchester, social visits from people outside your household or support bubble are banned.

    Household visits are not allowed in Scotland, but couples not living together are exempt.

    In Wales, you can form an extended household, which means you're allowed to meet indoors and have physical contact.

    Staying safe
    The Terrence Higgins Trust published advice in August suggesting people avoid kissing, wear a face covering and choose positions that aren't face-to-face during sex.

    They say their advice hasn't changed much since then.

    "Your best sexual partner during the COVID-19 pandemic is yourself or someone within your household and you should follow the Government guidelines about social distancing, hand washing and face coverings.

    "However, it's unrealistic to ask everyone to abstain from sex indefinitely, whether in 'established' relationships or not," the trust says.

    Masturbation, sex toys or having phone or online sex are recommended as the safest options.

    If you are having sex with people outside of your household, it's important to limit the number of partners, it says.

    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.

    If you are meeting someone new, the charity says to ask if they or anyone in their household have had symptoms or tested positive.


    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.

    "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," Dr Alex George told Radio 1 Newsbeat in March.

    Dr Alex is an A&E doctor and former Love Island contestant and says "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.

    If I may, I think you’d be aiming at the wrong target if you shoot yourself.

    Canada recommends using "glory holes' for sex during pandemic.

    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    Two steps ahead, and you are deemed a crackpot.
