Safe sex in the age of COVID: BBC warns to mask up during your lockdown lovin’
The BBC is literally getting into bed with people. They are now advising in an article that people should wear face masks during sex in order to stop the spread of coronavirus. They are also telling us to, “Choose positions that aren’t face-to-face during sex.” Now, they are not only in bed with us, they are sex counselors as well.
Given that masks don’t stop the spread of the coronavirus and the intimate contact and bodily fluids involved, it is unlikely a mask will protect you any more than a leaky condom. This is patently ridiculous.
The piece, titled “Sex and Covid: What are the rules in lockdown?,” details “new guidance on having sex” in the aftermath of Prime Minister Boris Johnson declaring a new national lockdown set to last for months. Brits are not amused.
The article admonishes that “meeting up for sex is off the cards” under the new rules but goes on to offer recommendations on how couples can practice COVID-safe sex.
“Avoid kissing, wear a face covering and choose positions that aren’t face-to-face during sex,” states the piece, echoing advice given by the Terrence Higgins Trust. It sounds more like guidance for paid sex or better yet, no sex.
“Your best sexual partner during the Covid-19 pandemic is yourself,” the article adds, encouraging people to engage in “masturbation, sex toys or having phone or online sex,” rather than the real thing. Facepalm. Well, at least you won’t give it to yourself I guess.
“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,” the trust sagely points out.
Police in Britain have demanded powers to force entry into people’s homes if they suspect someone of engaging in behavior contrary to lockdown rules. I guess that includes unmasked shagging.
Where, how and who you can have sex with is currently subject to different laws depending on where you live in the UK

The virus can spread through saliva, mucus, or the breath of those who have it, along with contact with hard surfaces. I would imagine it can spread through other bodily fluids as well. They added the virus has been found in semen and feces, which is why you should use condoms and dams for oral sex to minimize risk. Not going there.
Washing your hands for more than 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer before and after sex is recommended. Next, they’ll tell you to stop what you are doing every 30 seconds and sanitize various body parts.
“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 back 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. Well, who wouldn’t listen to a so-called expert who is a former Love Island contestant? We’re doomed I tell you. Doomed.
All of these rules, which are being brought in under a so-called Conservative government which is looking more fascistic by the day, have been vehemently supported by the left who in recent history would have normally been aghast at the state literally dictating who you’re allowed to have sex with. Now, they welcome Big Brother in their beds. It’s the Kama Sutra Orwellian style with a mask.
