Working from home, homeschooling and looming financial burdens weighed on numerous relationships. Restrictions in the movement have impacted long-distant romances, new relationships and marriages.
For couples in a relationship which was already fraught with tension, the cracks on the surface opened up to reveal the underlying problems.
As countries gradually emerge from quarantine and ease into the ?new normal?, reports suggest a spike in the number of married couples filing for divorce.
The fallout from the pandemic is a higher number of singles or separated people looking for a new romantic adventure. It?s almost certain that people will ramp up their efforts to find comfort in a relationship before the next lockdown.
Whether you?re looking for excitement, a?one-night-only sex hookup?or a serious long-term relationship, online dating websites open doorways to a world of love, sex and excitement.?
The Need For Intimacy
Humans have an innate need for intimacy. Sharing close moments, both verbally and physically, increases health and happiness. Without intimacy, you deny basic emotional needs and are more likely to feel depressed and mentally unstable.?
Singles may already be wondering how coronavirus will impact their need for physical intimacy. Touch and physical contact by a trusted person has a positive impact on your mental and physical health.
Experts are well aware of the human need for emotional intimacy. The Dutch government even advised their singletons to find a sex buddy to help protect mental health.
As a matter of fact, studies show that regular sex is good for mental and physical health. When you orgasm, the body releases the hormone prolactin which helps relieve stress and invites relaxation. In turn, you get a better night?s sleep.
Other studies have found that?regular sex helps to reduce anxiety?and could also?lower stress-related blood pressure.?
Sex Hookups Post Lockdown?
As people start to emerge from self-isolation, one thing is certain; they will be as horny as a dog on heat. Social media is already ablaze with talks of post-lockdown hookups and plans for various sexcapades.?
The general view seems to be there?s going to be ?fuckfest?.
Official sources (except the Dutch), of course, advise against sex hookups or with partners that live in different households. With tons of pent up sexual energy in reserve, it?s a safe bet that most people will ignore what health officials advise.
However, that doesn?t mean people shouldn?t take precautions. There are ways of?socially-distancing during sex. Health chiefs in New York suggest using glory holes. Whatever takes their fancy.?
Essentially, Covid-19 spreads from one person to the next through the exchange of fluids. But it cannot be passed on purely by having sex. Kissing is ill-advised. So is rimming.
But providing you don?t cough, sneeze or exchange saliva, you can have sexual intercourse without any risk of contracting coronavirus. Want to find a hookup?
