Dutch Govt Is Asking Singles To Find A ‘Sex Buddy’ For COVID-19 Lockdown

The coronavirus lockdown has made definitely made us realize that we took a lot of things for granted previously! Especially physical contact that included a reassuring touch from a friend, a hug from a loved one, a peck on the cheek and errmm ‘sex’ too!

I know that escalated rather quickly, but while our Govt has strictly called for being ‘atmanirbhar’, the Dutch Govt seems to consider ‘sex as a necessity’ and has issued an advice stating that single people should get a ‘sex buddy’ to get through the lockdown! Thoughtful much?

Dutch Govt Asks Citizens To Get A Sex Buddy For The Lockdown

After critics complained that there was no ‘sex advice’ for singles by the Government, it issued a rather open-minded guidance, and asked those without a permanent sexual partner to form ‘mutual agreements’ with like-minded individuals. Basically a ‘sex buddy’!

The official statement from the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) reads, “It makes sense that as a single [person] you also want to have physical contact. It is extra important that you minimize the risk of the coronavirus during intimacy and sex. Discuss how best to do this together. Please observe the rules surrounding the new coronavirus.”

The RIVM also suggests taking precautions to minimize the risk of coronavirus exposure. It says, “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. 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 coronavirus.” Well, what do I say, safety during sex is always recommended!

The Dutch Government Has Also Issued Advice For People With Partners

The RIVM has also issued advice for people whose long-term partners suspect they have contracted the coronavirus. “Don’t have sex with your partner if they have been isolated because of (suspected) coronavirus infection,” the RIVM says.

But it also seems to have some really good advise for those who do not want to risk themselves, “Sex with yourself or with others at a distance is possible (think of telling erotic stories, masturbating together).” Interesting!

Well, well, well, only the Dutch could come up with someone like this, given its freedom involving all things sexual! Right?! While prostitution is legal in the country, it is also considered to be one of the most popular destinations for sex tourism destinations in the world.
