We still have a lot to learn about COVID-19 and sex.
- COVID-19 has been found in feces of people who are infected with the virus.
- COVID-19 has not yet been found in semen or vaginal fluid.
- We know that other coronaviruses do not efficiently transmit through sex.
And provides a very important reminder that:
You are your safest sex partner.Masturbation will not spread COVID-19, especially if you wash your hands (and any sex toys) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after sex.

So now you know: if you’re in New York City, DiBlasiDon’t Go Ass-To-Mouth.
