‘Eating booty’ may spread covid-19. That’s according to a memo published by the NYC Health Department for how to practice safe sex during quarantine.
The memo, “Sex and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)”, explains “how to enjoy sex and avoid spreading COVID-19.” The memo has provided some much needed guidance and humor, for those on social media.
While the guide in nature is to sway people away from randomly hooking up, or having new sex partners, it says “You are your safest sex partner” but warns to wash your hands first and that “masturbation will not spread COVID-19”
If your hand just won’t do it, they offer a little roommate advice: “The next safest partner is someone you live with”.
To accommodate social distancing, “video dates, sexting or chat rooms” are okay.
Of course, group sex is frowned upon also.
Regardless of what your preference is, many users just enjoyed a nice laugh.
Lastly, just stick to eating groceries during quarantine.
If you are going to have sex, they recommend using a condom. That’s if you can find one during the shortage.
A spokesperson for the NYC Health Department told Buzz Feed News “”We certainly want people to know that yes, it’s ok to have sex, and encourage them to be aware of the risks and ways to protect themselves”.
