"But this isn't the first time that sex has sparked debate over coronavirus restrictions. Earlier this month, it was made illegal to have sex with someone outside your household, with the rules being put into place from June 1. At the time, anyone caught breaking the law could face having a criminal record – although police officers were not able to enter people's homes in order to enforce it, according to a Downing Street official."
"In August, the Terrence Higgins Trust published advice suggesting people avoid kissing, wear a face covering and choose positions that aren't face-to-face during sex. The organisation maintains that the safest form of sex is with yourself.
"Indeed, this is a position echoed by health professionals in Canada. Dr Theresa Tam, the country’s Chief Public Health Officer, recommended people don’t kiss, avoid face-to-face closeness and wear a mask during sex to prevent the spread of coronavirus."
"Dr Carlos E. Rodríguez-Díaz, associate professor of prevention and community health at George Washington University, told The Telegraph: “There is no evidence that Covid-19 can be transmitted via sexual intercourse; either vaginal or anal.
"However, kissing is a very common practice during sex, and the virus can be transmitted via saliva. Therefore, the virus can be transmitted by kissing." Telegraph
