Coronavirus: Advice On Sex For The Gay Community During The Pandemic

Coronavirus: Advice On Sex For The Gay Community During The Pandemic

Those in the gay community have been advised to be cautious about sex – particularly with multiple partners – if they want to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus.

Leading LGBT+ health charity GMFA has issued the advice, along with information on mental health and for people with HIV. It comes as one gay porn studio in the US halts production due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Charged Media produces the Say Uncle network of titles including Family Dick, Brother Crush, Latin Leche, Young Perps, Missionary Boys, Black Gods, and Yes Father. The studio said it made the move to protect its employees. However Charged Media promises it has a back catalogue of unseen material to release.



The advice GMFA gave was directed at gay and bi men – but the same logic will apply to all sex.

GMFA says: ‘Because of the way the virus is spread, sex is a high-risk activity, especially if you are having sex with different partners. This is because during sex we tend to swap bodily fluids such as salvia (spit), sweat and cum.

‘Obviously the best way to prevent contracting COVID-19 would be not to have sex, even with your long-term partner. But if you are, then try and limit the swapping of bodily fluids through kissing and cumming. Using condoms for oral sex would help.

‘The other thing you can look at is reducing the number of sexual partners you are having. If you are attending sex and chemsex parties, saunas or darkrooms then it might be safer to limit these or stop going.

‘Should you become infected with COVID-19, by stopping your sexual activity you can prevent passing it on to others.

‘Obviously if you are in a long-term relationship and both of you are at home and self-isolating and not showing symptoms, then have as much fun as you like. Though if one of you starts to show symptoms try and avoid sex for up to 14 days.’



Leading charities have already reassured people with HIV. They say if they are otherwise young and healthy, that they are unlikely to be at greater risk. GMFA endorses this advice. However, people who have other health conditions related to their HIV may need to self-isolate.

Meanwhile GMFA advises people who need to test for HIV and STIs to use home testing services if they can.



GMFA is also advising people to look after their mental health and wellbeing.

It says: ‘Lots of gay and bisexual men experience depression and anxiety, so if you are one of these people, then make sure to look after your mental wellbeing. Overall, we know during this time, hooking up can help beat boredom and isolation. But we all have to do our bit to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We know older people are high risk of health complications with this virus, so we all must do what we can to protect others.’



Meanwhile, you can protect yourself, your loved ones and the wider population by following this general advice:

  • Wash your hands more regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Put any used tissues into the bin immediately.
  • Avoid touching your face, particularly your nose, mouth and eyes.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
  • If you are unwell, avoid contact with others (touching, kissing, hugging and other intimate contact) and check the latest official advice on seeing a doctor or self-isolating.
  • Use hand-sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) if it is not possible to wash your hands.

    Spoke with a psychic I connected with on instagram and she said the whole thing will be over two months from then ( now about a month and three weeks )

    She said its effect on African nations won’t be as devastating as it will be in Europe and North America for whatever reason.

    Mind you she made predictions at the beginning of this year and never mentioned anything like Corona ?.

    But she’s given me some readings that turned out accurate though.
    Back in November(2019) she told me I’ll meet someone that will sponsor my trip abroad , in December I met someone ….then she told me again I’ll be out of Naija by February , na April we dey enter so, na here I dey .

    Lass lass no man be God , so I understand that there can always be errors.
    I’m just hoping this one will be one of her right ones because see ehn ….

    I heard psychics are fed info by demons and in the book of demonology…while some demons can be helpful , most are prone to mischief and would interrupt a reading to feed false information.

    Even psychic Sylvia Browne , the only one that came close to predicting Corona has had so many inconsistencies in her prophecies.
    She got her death year wrong by twelve years.
    Once told a mother that her kidnapped daughter was dead and the woman died of heartbreak , only for the girl to be found alive one year later.

    So all these things sha, na one eye we dey take look am.
    I’m just hoping she’s right even if at this MIT , I don’t know how plausible it is. ?

    My boyfriend doesn’t own the luxury of his time , so he needs to get out there everyday.
    The disease is extremely contagious so I know any day he gets it , I’m pretty much toast too – whether we are having sex or nah .

    Imagine after all my wayward lifestyle I no catch disease , na Corona go come finish me ???

      Chill dear, from these lengthy comments that “unintentionally” give us insights about how financially and physically fit you are, I’m sure you’d be perfectly fine even if you get infected.
