Avoiding the oral transmission of bodily fluids has become a hurdle that couples may face while trying to be intimate.
According to a report published in Annals of Internal Medicine, experts are now suggesting that couples wear facemasks during sex as this will help combat the spread of the novel virus.
Avoiding sexual partners with symptoms of cold like fever, sore throat, loss of appetite and frequent fatigue (symptoms of the coronavirus), the report reveals, might be another way to reduce human transmission.
In addition, a new study by the Harvard University titled Sexual Health in the SARS-CoV-2 Era recommends frequent showers especially before and after sex as well as the avoidance of all oral activity since oral transmission is the virus’ major means of spreading coronavirus.
The guide also reveals abstinence, masturbation, and sexual activity using digital platforms carry the lowest risk in this period.
