“… sex during the coronavirus pandemic…” Telegraph


(safe sex)

"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


The picture? – A truly great love scene played out between Leslie Nielsen and Priscilla Presley in the "Naked Gun" series of films.  I was touched when I first saw this depiction of truly safe sex and remain so.  Touched.  Touched.

The basic inhumanity in all this silliness is, or should be, obvious to one and all.  But, the inability to understand human nature as opposed to epidemiology, has been a characteristic of the doctor parts of governments here and over there in the UK.   pl

    In the long ago in Bangkok, a young lady approached me on Soi Cowboy with a similar proposal, albeit couched differently and definitely more intriguing.
    Not the worst night I have ever had.

    Has this item in the Telegraph accidentally hit upon a major reason why young people have taken to the streets to act out violently and criminally?
    It’s shocking that so many Americans are willing to submit to unreasonable controls being imposed. Do people function mindlessly anymore, easily manipulated by media, and too lazy to research issues to find out if what they’re being told is actually true and/or in perspective? SO, anal sex is okay but attending a baseball game isn’t. What a world. SMFH…
    The Naked Gun series is riot, but probably couldn’t be made today in quite the same way in light of so much touchy censoriousness. I had to laugh when, on the eve of the infamous OJ Simpson trial, the series (in which he had a recurring role) was run on TV continuously for several days.

    “Dr. Carlos Rodriguez-Diaz is a community health scientist with over fifteen years of experience practicing public health and conducting action research in Puerto Rico, …. His work has focused on infectious diseases, particularly HIV care and prevention,”
    Carlos the celibate didn’t make any pronouncements on California’s SB329, ’cause we sure wouldn’t want to irritate the left’s gay constituency. Straight people though, that’s 97% of the population and they better do what they are told by yet another expert. I wonder if anyone has bothered to tell him who he should be fornicating with yet.

    Our lockdown and curfew has specific exemptions for people visiting “significant others”. My Son in law tells me he is still dating despite the virus.

    The Naked Gun and Airplane movies were funny. Leslie Nielsen played lead in one of my favorite science fiction movies FORBIDDEN PLANET, 1956, with its monsters from the Id.
    Much of today’s entertainment, especially music videos, is plain old raunchy. I do enjoy sexy,even when it seems quaint, like this:
