Protect yourself to the Maximum

One of the first to take care of the sex life of citizens during the pandemic was the Canadian authorities. So, back in the late spring of last year, a set of rules appeared on the official website of the Toronto City Hall.  How to make love in order to minimize the risk.

Partners who live together need not be particularly afraid. For polyamor, the safest thing is contactless sex, the authors of the recommendations emphasized. The fact is that coronavirus is transmitted by airborne droplets, that is, through close contact, talking, sneezing and coughing.

  • No contact – no infection.
  • Fans of one-time meetings with regulars of dating sites should temporarily go online.
  • In a pandemic, it is better for them to practice video dating, virtual sex and chatting.

Sex During Covid 

Life is not at all sweet without sexual intercourse.  You need to protect yourself to the maximum. Namely – to use condoms, be sure to wash your hands before and after sex (it does not matter, alone or with a partner), put on masks during the act and refuse to kiss.

In addition, it is better to choose positions that exclude face-to-face contact.

The British Columbia authorities have a similar opinion regarding postures. And they also remind: it is important to wash sex toys with soap and not use them with a large number of partners.

Vaccination for Sex

World Health Organization also paid attention to the issue of intimacy. Its experts warn: any sexual act implies close contact, which means it increases the risk of contracting coronavirus.

An exception is partners who live under the same roof and observe infection control measures. Masturbation also does not compromise the health of the other person.

New York City Department of Health has issued its own “sex rules”, and the main thing is – get vaccinated. This is the easiest way to protect yourself and your beloved from covid. Already two weeks after the second vaccination, you can safely go on dates and not wear a mask during the act, the authors of the recommendations note.  And it works even when it comes to meeting strangers or group sex.

Safe Sex With No Vax

A person who is not fully vaccinated will have to have sex in a mask, avoid kissing, exclude oral and anal sex.

Expert from one of the largest medical research centers “Mayo Clinics” (USA) advises unvaccinated people to reduce the number of sexual partners and refuse sexual intercourse with those who have ARVI symptoms.

Coronavirus is not sexually transmitted, but kissing, hugging and close communication with a partner are dangerous, especially if you don’t know his status or he doesn’t know whether he’s sick or not. Therefore, it is much wiser to get vaccinated and be sure that the risk of infection is minimized, ”the expert emphasized.

What Does Science Say? 

According to scientists from Harvard University (USA), sexual activity significantly increases the risk of contracting covid. Even though SARS-CoV-2 is not sexually transmitted. No traces of the virus have yet been found in the vaginal secretions.

Fragments of his RNA were found in semen, but whether it was infectious, the researchers never figured out.

The coronavirus is insidious in that it has a long incubation period and is asymptomatic. Therefore, the authors of the article believe, physicians should inform patients about sex recommendations during a pandemic.

Sex Recommendations During a Pandemic

  • Sexual intercourse is safe between people who are quarantined together or live in the same apartment. Naturally, masturbation and abstinence do not carry any risks.
  • In addition, phone sex and video calls are acceptable.
  • If the infection with covid could not be avoided, then sex can be engaged immediately, as soon as the state of health allows.
  • However, experts recommend carefully protecting yourself for some time after recovery.

It must be understood that any infection – and COVID-19 is no exception – affects a man’s fertility.

There is nothing new here. For healthy offspring after acute illnesses – be it food poisoning, ARVI, influenza, pneumonia, COVID-19 – neither men nor women are recommended to immediately plan children. For a child to be born healthy, the body needs to recover.

According to the researchers’ calculations, this usually lasts from three to six months. Then you can return to normal life, especially if you revaccinate on time.

Dental Dam

Products to Prevent Female STI

A lot of people have heard of condoms for women but we have never been formally introduced to them.

There are three different sexual products that fall into the female condom group including dental dams, female condoms and soft tampons. All three product’s have slightly different reasons why they are used. We have briefly described what each product does below.

Dental Dam

A dental dam is a thin square of latex that can be used to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections during oral sex.  They can be bought in some stores, or you can make your own using a condom or a latex glove.

They are called “dental” dams because they were originally designed as a protective measure for dentists working on a patient’s teeth.  The local sexual health store used to supply them for free.  Due to budget restraints they only supply condoms.

They advise customers to cut them open and use them.

Performing oral sex on a woman using a dental dam carries lower risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease. Getting an STI from vaginal sex, anal sex or performing oral sex on a man is much more common.

A rim job carries some of the more dangerous health risks including including potentially transmitting Hepatitis A. It can also cause several other illnesses through bacteria or parasite infections. Dental Dams are more common used within lesbian or bisexual relationships.

Female Condom

The female condom is made from polyurethane and is inserted into the vagina before sex.  It is about 15cm long and has two flexible rings, one at each end, to keep it in place in the vagina.

One of the rings is closed and this end rests inside the woman’s vagina. The other ring, which is open, rests outside. When used, it covers the cervix and lines the vagina and shields the vulva which is the entrance to the vagina. It provides a physical barrier between the penis and the vaginal walls during penetrative sex.

It also prevents the exchange of body fluids semen and vaginal fluids from transmitting to the other person. The ring outside the vagina acts as an anchor to prevent the condom from being pushed inside the vagina during sex.  It is also used for removing the condom after sex.  The female condom is self-lubricated but extra lubricant can be used. It is an alternative to the male condom as a barrier method for safer sex and contraception.

Steps to Use a Female Condom

  1. Hold the inner ring (the closed end of the condom) and squeeze the edges of this ring together.
  2. Insert this end as far as possible into the vagina.  Upon release, the ring will open to hold the condom in place.
  3. With your fingers inside the condom, push it up into the vagina.  The outer ring should remain outside the vagina, resting against the labia.
  4. Be sure the condom has not twisted.
  5. Guide the penis into the vagina during sex.
  6. To remove the condom after sex, twist the outer ring and pull the condom out.  Wrap it in some tissue and dispose of the condom in a rubbish bin.

STI Prevention: Female Condom

Soft Tampons

A Soft Tampon is what women use to prevent period blood to leak every where during sex. It is used instead of using regular tampons. The basic principle of the Soft Tampon has been known since the 18th century.

There are historical reports of women using tiny natural sponges during their period. But in those days, there was little knowledge of physical hygiene, and less attention paid to comfort. Infections were frequent within their lifestyles. The most common soft tampon is the natural sea sponge.

I learnt this trick at a very early age from talking to the local prostitute.

I was always a curious one and felt no qualms in asking any question I wanted to. Our local prostitute was called Rose. I asked her what did she do for money when she had her period.

This was where my sex education kicked off.

Her advice was to find a natural sea sponge that had little or no holes.

Wet the sponge squeeze out excess water and simply insert it like a tampon. She told me since it was a natural product it is better for your body and there is no chance you will have toxic shock syndrome.

The sea sponge is very absorbent, but if you have sex with just a sea sponge, expect it to get shoved quite far back in your vaginal canal.

This makes retrieving it hard to do by yourself because your hand will be bent at a bad angle. You can push down with your vaginal muscles and pull it out. The retrieval requires more effort than a regular tampon. You can also “squat and grunt.”

Practicing Safe Sex During The Coronavirus Outbreak

There is no need to introduce COVID-19, the virus declared a pandemic and which forces all people to be at home.  With coronavirus cases are on the rise, many people are concerned about the spread of the virus.

The virus has been shown to spread through fluids or mucus from the nose and mouth that contain the virus.

Concern about the safety of having sex during the outbreak increases.

It is necessary to avoid physical contact due to the possibility of contagion, so they recommend postponing sexual intercourse for greater safety.  Coughing with your elbow, washing your hands often, avoiding proximity to people with symptoms, and even greeting each other with your elbows or feet are some of the measures people are taking to avoid getting coronavirus.

The problem is that sometimes avoiding gestures of affection can be very difficult, and if we talk about avoiding sex, things get tense.

But there is no need to worry, sexual relations are not in danger, although we do have to take some precaution or measure, for example, using sex toys.

Not Contagious with Sex

COVID-19 is only spread through the respiratory tract. “The disease can spread from person to person through droplets from the nose or mouth that are thrown out when an infected person coughs or exhales,” explains the World Health Organization (WHO).

These droplets can fall on objects and surfaces and, if we touch them and then touch our mouth, nose or eyes, we can contract the disease, as well as if we inhale the droplets expelled by a person with coronavirus, adds the WHO.

Does not affect sexual relations

At least not directly, since the coronavirus cannot be transmitted through genital fluids.

However, maintaining a sexual relationship indeed requires proximity to the other person, so although the virus is not spread by sex itself, it can be contracted by inhaling the particles expelled by the other person if they are infected.

Avoid sexual activity if you are experiencing signs or symptoms of this infection. However, be aware that this virus can spread even when people do not experience symptoms.

Solution: Sex toys

Sex toys, sexting, cybersex, and phone sex are considered “alternative forms” of sexual expression that you can perform during the pandemic; they are ways of having sexual relations with a partner without presenting any risk of infection with coronavirus (or STDs, obviously).

Focusing on sex toys, they are the ones that will give you the most pleasure to please your partner and you, and in times of coronavirus, it is more beneficial since you do not need to have direct contact with your partner.

Buying sex toys could be the safest practice in this pandemic, since, in addition to pleasure and you do not risk contagion, you will experience something new and fun so that sexual practice is not something monotonous or boring.

Don’t know what sex toys to buy?

Vibrators and dildos

Vibrators are manual electrical devices that produce different types of stimuli to increase arousal and prolonging the duration of orgasm in women and men.

There is a wide variety of these sex toys, some are usually made of very soft materials, and the vast majority faithfully imitate a real penis, and they have all kinds of silhouettes and colors.

For their part, dildos are generally made of silicone or latex and are shaped like penises of different sizes, shades, and even flavors, and some even have a special texture to generate greater pleasure.

Before using them, make sure they are free of superficial imperfections that could be bothersome. If you are allergic to latex, choose carefully the material from which it is made. Don’t forget always to use a condom to cover the toy during penetration!

At the end, remove the batteries from the interior and wash it perfectly; dry it and store it in a cool, dark place to prevent sunlight from damaging it.

Penis ring

The cock ring is a small sexual ally, which is placed around the member, either at the tip, base or scrotum.

One or more can be used at the same time to increase blood flow in the penis and prolong the erection time and, at the same time, delay ejaculation, perfect for long masturbation.

There are presentations in leather, rubber, silicone, and metal, and it is recommended not to use it for more than half an hour or fall asleep with it since it could be difficult to remove it (in fact, the best rings are elastic).

Remember.  All sex toys should be used in combination with lubricants, so each experience is as pleasant as possible, free from possible irritations.
