Sex in times of the coronavirus (DW)

Social distancing is the order of the day, so it's not a good time for sexual contact. It'll be toughest for single people. But for couples, isolation could prove to be a second honeymoon ... or hell on Earth.

The coronavirus is changing everything, including our sexual relationships. The most obvious sign of that in Berlin was evident one Friday evening in mid-March: The doormen had disappeared from Insomnia, the German capital's famed club for swingers, fetishists and hedonists, along with the otherwise usual line of sexual libertines along the sidewalk.

Instead, there was only a note on the door announcing that the Berlin state government had ordered all clubs to be shut down. On the club homepage, Insomnia manager Dominique and the team posted an optimistic message: "Stay healthy, protect yourselves, and hopefully we'll be able to party together in five weeks' time."

Bad time to be single

Though Berlin's clubs were already closed, restaurants and cafés were still open in mid-March. As one young woman sitting with her friends outside a bar in the spring sunshine told DW with a laugh: "The coronavirus had to come in spring, of all times. Doesn't look good for us singles."

1. my single friends are bumming and pining.

We have been face timing them and calling them.

Especially the folks in bands that socialize on tour, everything is getting cancelled.

So they are pretty much un-employed.

3. I was thinking about anyone single the other day.

It seems small or petty but I feel bad for them. Most of us have been single at some point and we all want some companionship. Even if it’s not sex.

4. New glory hole business opportunity?

It seems to me that this is an excellent business opportunity for some fine upstanding Christian Republican Representatives and Senators to be cashing in on by setting up manufacturing their kids can run.
