Now the fun police want us to wear masks during sex

Passion killer: not exactly erotic, is it?

No – not the kind of masks you wear while dogging.

According to The Independent:

Couples should have sex while wearing face masks to reduce the risk of transmitting Covid-19 to one another, a new study suggests.

Researchers at Harvard University published a study in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine on the safest ways to have sex during the coronavirus outbreak.

Having sex with people within your household… the study notes, comes with a high risk of infection given that one or both partners might have caught the virus from outside of the home.

It suggests that risk reduction measures should include wearing a face mask.

Clearly, it’s referring to people in the United States rather than in the UK, where many of us still aren’t allowed out, but this is getting ridiculous.

Already we can’t have fun with people from outside our households.

What next? No sex unless we’re in separate beds, preferably in completely different rooms?

    It is extremely rare that I agree with you on anything (I’m not a Socialist). However, on this occasion you are absolutely right as regards this daft idea! Kevin

    Given the state of my boat race I think my better half would prefer it if I wore one….
