Look, we all know there’s only thing anyone can talk about right now: the COVID-19 pandemic. But because this is a sex positive sexual health site, you know we had to bring it back to the bedroom. (Or the living room, or the kitchen, or the bathroom. We don’t judge, as long as you stay inside!) So this month, we talked about how to have hot sex during a pandemic, everything you need to know about sex and COVID, the truth about the high rates of STIs in DC, and a piece highlighting the similarities between the novel coronavirus and herpes.

Sex Positive Moments
Public Health Departments Acknowledged Both Masturbation AND Rimming
We’re old enough to remember when the Surgeon General was fired for recommending that young people masturbate, so it was especially exciting this month to see both the NYC and DC health departments talk about masturbation as a safe sex practice and rimming as unsafe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re all about openness and honesty around sex practices, especially when it comes from the government!
Sex Parties Get Creative
People who enjoy group sex may not be able to meet up IRL right now, but they’re getting creative online. Check out this Rolling Stone piece about digital sex parties.
