How has Coronavirus affected your sex life?

 

We were surprised (perhaps naively) to find that Agony Aunt Coleen Nolan of The Daily Mail in the UK, has been inundated with messages from Britons claiming their sex life has been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, this is not singles who can’t go out.

This is couples for whom being locked in a house with their significant other ruins their sex life.

Are you one of these folks?

Of course, if this is you, there are plenty of blog posts on our site to give you some ideas to make your COVID-19 lockdown a sexy one. Also, you can always read one of our books and get your libido going.

However, if you feel like it, Coleen Nolan is asking folk to fill in her survey examining this phenomenon.

You can take that survey here.

Robot sex dolls in the Coronavirus Pandemic

So, it seems that there has been an upsurge in the purchasing of robot sex dolls. This didn’t come as a huge surprise to us.

With the industry receiving so much additional funding through sales, the technology has had the chance to improve with talk of heart beats and breathing are currently being tested.

It is no surprise that there is an attempt to make sex-dolls more realistic.

This is primarily due to the fact that they are dolls. They are not people.

Therefore, it probably makes sense that no matter how hard they try to make a sex doll realistic, until we reach Blade Runner style androids, sex dolls will always be on a trajectory to ‘improve’ them.

However, the industry is enthusiastic about making robot dolls for other jobs like carers, bus drivers or policemen.

So seen from that angle, these dolls might be pioneers of sorts.

Lifting the Bonk Ban

Just because our image here is straight, doesn’t mean the rules are straight.

In Australia, there is much discussion about how to safely integrate casual sex into a post COVID-19 lockdown society. The basic rules apply, wash your hands, practice general social distancing and don’t hook up if unwell.

The Australian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) has come on board to issue some guidelines for how to have casual sex as we all re-emerge from our COVID-19 safe spaces.

The guidelines go as far as to suggest:

“Have an encounter that does not involve touching,” is one tip, or have “online encounters” via webcams, apps and texting.

But most people will likely want to get physical. If that’s the case, consider washing or showering beforehand and engaging in “short encounters”.

Given the main transmission method for COVID-19 is through exhaled droplets, the new normal sex advice is to say no to snogging.

“Avoid kissing, saliva exchange, face touching … and positions which involved face-to-face contact.

“Have sex that reduces the amount of contact with bodily secretions, use condoms and dental dams to reduce contact with saliva, semen, vaginal secretions etc,” the ASHM task force memo advised.

Objects shouldn’t be shared that may have bodily fluids on them while sex toys and other surfaces should be cleaned frequently. Wash sheets after sex to give the virus, if it’s there at all, the flick.

For more information, check out the ASHM website here.

Why are we so horny right now?

While there is a lot of people in quarantine who are experienced a decreased sex drive, it is impossible to ignore that many people are experiencing an increased sex drive.

The increased sex drive could be a response to repressed fear, a natural biological reaction when presented with the idea of personal extinction, a desire to get creative with life or boredom pure and simple.

Which ever theory you subscribe to its totally fine to feel hornier or less horny. No one should feel ridiculous for experiencing either.

However, if you feel unattractive and therefore not horny, it’s better to do some self esteem work. Life is not normal just now. Being at home is not normal. You may need to get creative with life in order to handle this odd time.

No matter what, be safe, look after yourself and be careful with others.

Women and Porn during COVID-19 lockdown

It’s no secret that we’re all watching more porn during lockdown. Theories about why we might be doing this range from ‘Cabin fever’ and more time on our hands to fear and lack of control during Coronavirus Anxiety.

What is interesting is the hours in which all this has changed.

For women, an increase in traffic has been reported in the early hours from midnight to 3am. Men watch at this time, but the women are watching more at this time.

Alternatively, fewer women are watching at 9am, but they increase their viewing at mid-day. Then at 1pm it drops to below average (while men show a spike at this time) and then the men drop off during the rest of the afternoon while women show an increase in the rest of the afternoon.

Then it all starts again at around 11pm.

The overall increase is not a difficult to work out as the hourly increases. One would think a lockdown wouldn’t affect what happens in a house between 11pm and 4am, but female driven traffic has revealed as much as a 55% increase at one point.

Anxiety perhaps? Can’t sleep?
