Stop Loneliness: looking for a date during a pandemic

Dating in the age of the coronavirus: dating for the extreme
Guys and girls who can’t imagine their lives without risk are unlikely to behave more cautiously, even in the face of a pandemic. According to Valentin Skvortsov, a Yandex analyst, visitors to dating sites, at least in Russia, are making dates twice as often as before. Apparently, such a turnaround is due to the fear of not having enough time to find a date before the full quarantine shutdown. Agree, it’s more fun to spend time on self-isolation with two people. Let’s talk about the opinion of ordinary users of dating resources.
“Of course, it’s scary to date an unfamiliar man in today’s situation, but as long as you can still find a guy and have fun, I won’t be stopped by quarantine. By the way, we managed to go on a date to a restaurant yesterday, and today it is already closed. Agreed to meet at my place tomorrow, bought alcohol at the bar. Bought antiseptic, when he comes, I will treat him and, immediately, send him to the shower. I think it’s going to be an interesting experience. I’ve never taken a man to my place on a second date. And yes, there will definitely be sex,” shared Elena from Moscow, 29, a senior specialist in an engineering company.
“I’m not worried about the coronavirus. In my opinion, it is deadly only for the elderly and people with chronic diseases. I looked at the official statistics, at my age the chance of dying is 0.2%. And that’s if the circumstances are completely unfavorable. Therefore, despite the restrictions and the transition to a remote work, I intend to meet the girls. The relevance of geolocation is increasing on the sites. Of course, I will look for a girlfriend with the nearest location. By the way, going on a date tomorrow, we’ll walk down the street and then to my place, since everything is closed. I already bought masks for myself and my partner, antiseptic in my pocket. I never thought it would come in handy,” said Alexei from St. Petersburg, 27, a manager in a trading company.
“I’ll give you some advice for lovers of live communication during a pandemic. Avoid touching, the virus lives on surfaces for up to several hours. Treat your hands and face with antiseptic, especially before kissing. Wear a protective mask, but remember that it is only effective for the first 15 minutes. Wearing a mask regularly for more than two hours can cause sore throat. Therefore, I advise you not to procrastinate with walks, and invite your partner to visit. After entering the room, wash your hands with soap and warm water,” advises Anatoly Kosorotov, a virologist at the capital’s 2nd infectious diseases hospital.
“Sex is also possible. There is no evidence that the coronavirus is sexually transmitted, since it does not live on mucous membranes. The only wish is to take a shower before intercourse, with soap and water. Ordinary soap will do, but not necessarily the special ones used by doctors. Avoid kissing and close body contact, look for new positions,” his colleague, sexologist Igor Andrievsky, continues the theme started by Anatoly.
After such a statement, there is nothing left to do but tell our readers about sex in quarantine. We ourselves have learned many interesting things, which we will share.
Coronavirus sex: keeping safe during the crucial stage of dating
Let’s point out at once, there is no uniform opinion among doctors. Russian specialists recommend having sex under quarantine, while European specialists do not, or do so with restrictions. But since the article is written for the domestic reader, it is recommended to consider the advice of native doctors, and to listen to the opinion of western doctors.
“The main danger of ‘corona’ is transmission by airborne droplets and by hugging; the virus lives on the surface of clothing and skin. But making love implies hygiene. So in a case where a passion accidentally struck, do not rush to give it up completely. Go to the shower, separately, and then dare”, – advises Peter Melnikov, infectious disease specialist from Kazan.
“Statistics claim that over the past two weeks, condom sales in Russia have increased by 30%. The data were provided by marketing experts at Durex, and they should be trusted. It’s nice that fellow citizens think about safe sex, but a condom with coronavirus is a useless thing. The infection does not live on the mucous membranes, it needs a different environment. Although there is a known case of infection through oral caressing, and the patient was a woman who fondled a man, colleagues from Italy said. I do not rule out that they kissed beforehand, but a fact is a fact,” said Stepan Andreevich Anufrienko, a sexologist from St. Petersburg.
“I advise you to make protected love until the information about the virus is complete. Also exclude positions in which contact with your partner is maximal in terms of the area of contact of the bodies,” Stepan Andreevich continued.
The specialist does not advise to have sex with new acquaintances during the epidemic. He urges to limit themselves to virtual sex. Moreover, there are a lot of people who want to have sex on dating sites. One should only go there and register. But if you can’t wait and it almost happened, then limit the set of positions.
Safe sex positions for coronavirus
Let’s make fans of “doggy style” happy – it’s the safest position during lovemaking in the COVID-19 pandemic. Just don’t hold your partner with your hands. The man from behind enters the woman standing on all fours. Hands are not involved.
Variations of this pose are also allowed. For example, the girl can stand leaning against the wall (don’t forget to disinfect it), and the guy is behind her.
The ideal position is the girl on top. Not all partners know this kind of technique, but you’ll have to master it. The man lies on his back, and the woman in the riding position on top. Dare, you will succeed!
One more piece of advice. Avoid touching hugs after intimacy, sweaty bodies are the perfect surface for the virus to live on.
In conclusion, I wanted to summarize that despite the epidemic, it is possible to avoid loneliness on self-isolation. The Internet works, dating sites are full of bored men and women. Communication and love can be built from a distance, there are many ways. For reckless citizens, doctors have given advice on how to avoid infection as much as possible, even when making love with a new partner. Register on honest resources and remember: cheaters are activated in troubled times. Use personal protective equipment (not just masks). Take care of yourself and your loved ones!
