You have to be careful out there. With panic and politics combining with a pandemic, it can be difficult to know what’s true, what’s misinformation, and what’s outright Trump rump-covering lies. So, understandably, people are turning to the internet to answer coronavirus questions like: Can it be sexually transmitted?
Self-proclaimed “conquerer of microbes,” Susanna L Harris says yes. She shared her reasoning on Twitter:
I keep getting people asking me if the coronavirus can be spread through sexual contact even if there is no exchange of air or touching of faces. If you can get this accomplished from 6 feet away, congratulations to both of you— Susanna L Harris (@SusannaLHarris) March 16, 2020
Okay. That makes sense. However, a flood of replies aimed to poke holes in this logic. Sexy, sexy, holes.
Right now the internet in response… 😄 pic.twitter.com/q9b9UFHtTI— Jacob Trevino, PhD (@JTrevinoNano) March 16, 2020
The following is NSFW (if you’re still working around other people.)
My partner and I practice safe social distancing sex, especially after a fight. I yell, "fuck you" from the bedroom and he yells, "fuck you" from the living room sofa. Guess you could call it oral sex.— Sarah Burgess (@sunkist111) March 17, 2020
Things are moving towards Demolition Man universe, sex without touching and no toilet paper. pic.twitter.com/gAlVJBAflV— Amy Robinson Likes Pie (@AmyQOTWF) March 17, 2020
