My fellow Pennsylvanians, still not going to reveal how I caught the China Flu while following all my unconstitutional edicts, but as a public service I will offer some tips Levine and I put together one night while staying at the Hotel Hershey. And yes separate rooms, okay? For your convenience these tips and others are posted on Levine’s website here: Safer Sex and COVID-19
Let me stress I have no one in mind but here are our tips and advice as posted on the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Health Department’s website in an effort to keep Pennsylvanians safer.
Sex, which may include oral, vaginal or anal sex is a normal part of life and should always be with the consent of all parties involved.
Large gatherings are not safe during COVID19, but if you attend a large gathering where you might end up having sex below are tips to reduce your risk of spreading or getting COVID-19 through sex:
If you usually meet your sex partners online, consider taking a break from in-person dates. Video dates, sexting, subscription-based fan platforms, or chat rooms may be options for you.
And remember during sex is no time to let your guard down, this virus likes when people get together to have sex.
Avoid kissing. Kissing can easily pass the virus. Wear a face covering or mask.
During COVID-19, wearing a face covering that covers your nose and mouth is a good way to add a layer of protection during sex with those outside your household.
And as an aside, let me add if you are having sex with someone outside your household, and someone is waiting in your household for you to get home, that could certainly pose a much greater threat to you than the China Flu. Actually the China Flu might be the least of your worries.
As I have said, “The virus makes the rules” and this virus really really likes it when people get together to drink and likes it even more when people get together to drink and have sex.
Let me end by saying, as I have warned about people recklessly getting together with friends and drinking on Thanksgiving Eve, “When people get together in that situation it leads to an increase in the exchange of the fluids that leads to increased infection.” Our science shows, that when people drink and then have sex there is even more fluids exchanged than drinking alone. Not only that but our science shows that when people drink they are more likely to have sex, even sometimes with people not from their household. Remember while having sex your mask protects whomever your having sex with and whomever’s mask protects you.
Secretary Levine asked that I remind everyone to wash your hands after sex too.
