We’re already well into the season when students are supposed to be heading off to (or back to) college for the fall semester. That hasn’t happened at a lot of schools, or if it has, they’re incorporating a lot of distance learning and other conditions not typical of the college experience in the past. At Yale, however, one of the nation’s allegedly most prestigious Ivy League institutions, the faculty has been working on ways to keep all of their charges safe from COVID even when they’re not engaged in scholastic activities with their professors. They’ve published a guide on how to safely have sex while reducing the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus.
As the Free Beacon points out, this isn’t some clinical dissertation ripped from the pages of a CDC advisory. The staff wants to really reach out and get in touch with the way the kids talk these days, dealing with them in a relatable fashion. With that in mind, the guide gets exceedingly graphic, going into specific details about different aspects of sexual encounters and the best ways to minimize exposure to the virus. But near the end, they actually put forward an idea with considerable merit. The best way to have sex during the pandemic may be to do it remotely.
Yale University published a comprehensive guide for how to have sex amid the coronavirus pandemic—so comprehensive, in fact, that it includes detailed descriptions of the sex acts thought to spread the virus.
Yale’s health department circulated a “Safer Sex During COVID-19” document that advises students to limit sexual interactions by masturbating and “liven up” their sex lives by wearing masks. The guidelines also offer tips on how to properly clean sex toys before and after use…
Other tips include selective kissing, using condoms, washing hands before and after sex, and using the internet for sexual exchanges.
