Coronavirus is impacting how we can interact with people and how we live our lives. The new rules state that you should stay in your homes to reduce the spread of the virus.
Therefore, we encourage you not to meet people for sex.
This includes new people and previous partners, however if you are living with your sexual partner you can carry on as normal. For more information about having sex with a partner, look at our good sex guide. During this time, be mindful that due to the extra pressures on the NHS, sexual health testing is extremely limited so make sure you’re using protection if necessary.
Coronavirus is thought to be very easily transmitted through things involved with having sex such as kissing, heavy breathing and foreplay. Be aware that you won't be able to tell if someone has the virus just by looking at them, and many people won't know they have it. Therefore, social distancing is essential at this moment.
So, during this period try and start thinking about sex differently. That means thinking about how to turn yourself on, explore your own body or connect with people through a webcam or your phone.

Grindr has even launched a campaign called Isolated but not alone, which allows you to talk to guys all over the world, where you explore your fantasies. It’s important to remember when it comes to cams or video, approach public sites and strangers with caution, as nothing is guaranteed to stay private.
