University tells students to wear coronavirus masks during SEX to stop spread
A UNIVERSITY has told its students to wear masks during sex and opt for masturbation where possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
"You are your safest sex partner", a pamphlet of "COVID-19 Considerations" distributed by the University of Georgia advises.
The advice continues: "Avoid kissing and be creative with sexual positions that reduce close face-to-face contact.
"Consider wearing a face mask during sex."
The advice echoes that of the New York City Health Department, which issued guidance earlier this year suggesting people get "creative with sexual positions".
British Columbia's department of health also issued similar advice, advocating the use of glory holes.
"Use barriers, like walls, (eg glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact," guidance reads.
The University of Georgia's advice was, somewhat unsurprisingly, mocked on social media.
"people are mocking them because it seems ridiculous to take measures to prevent the spread of covid during sex, and these are precautions that realistically nobody is actually going to take," one Twitter user wrote.
Another added: "I mean, if ever there was a need to get creative it would be now."
There are now 5 million confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the United States, with 162,000 deaths.
As many students prepare to return to educational institutions, health officials are concerned the country will enter a "new phase".
Colleges have been frantically preparing to welcome students back on campus, with the University of California, Berkeley, planning to test all residential students within 24 hours of their arrival.
