Single people should find a ‘sex buddy’ during lockdown: Dutch govt.
LONDON: The Dutch government has advised single men and women to find a ‘sex buddy’ for the coronavirus lockdown. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) said that single people seeking intimacy during the pandemic should come to an arrangement with one other person.
The total number of COVID-19 cases reported in the Netherlands is 43,880, as per Johns Hopkins University. While 159 people have recovered, the country has reported 5,662 deaths.
However, the two should avoid physical intimacy if one of them suspects that they are infected with the novel coronavirus, the advice says. The government issued the new guidance after critics said that there was no advice for singletons.
The Netherlands has been on what the government describes as an “intelligent lockdown” since March 23. Up to three visitors are allowed into homes on the condition that they maintain social distance. The RIVM, in its new guidance, said that “it makes sense that as a single [person] you also want to have physical contact” during the pandemic.
According to RIVM said that if single people choose to engage in sexual contact, they should take precautions to minimise the risk of corona virus exposure. The guidance said, “Discuss how best to do this together. For example, meet with the same person to have physical or sexual contact (for example, a cuddle buddy or ‘sex buddy’), provided you are free of illness.”
It added, “Make good arrangements with this person about how many other people you both see. The more people you see, the greater the chance of (spreading) the corona virus.”
If you are single and live in The Netherlands, you can find a ‘sex buddy during the coronavirus lockdown as the Dutch government has issued new guidance to such people seeking intimacy. According to the guidance issued by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), single people seeking intimacy during the pandemic should come to an arrangement with one other person.
The guidance said that sex with a regular partner is possible because they are very close and it is practically impossible to avoid each other physically. However, the two should avoid physical intimacy if one of them suspects that they are infected with the COVID-19 infection,” the advisory said.
It added that ‘sex with yourself or with others at a distance is possible’ and named ‘telling erotic stories’ or ‘masturbating together’ as possible solutions. also said that it makes sense that as a single you also want to have physical contact. Discuss how best to do this together. Please observe the rules surrounding the new corona virus,” according to the advisory.
