Sex and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
The best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home and minimize contact with others. In many areas, that’s already mandatory, which leaves many of us asking, “What if I want to meet a guy – NOW? “What if I feel bored and/or horny?” “What if I feel scared and anxious?”
