There are now few people in the civilized world who know nothing about the coronavirus (technically COVID-19), the pandemic of which is causing major changes worldwide. With this writing, the story evolves every day and there is no way of knowing exactly which way the pandemic will take. It is clear that the coronavirus is a major health concern – and this raises the question of whether it has sexual or specific penile health concerns.
The answer is yes – somehow. At least as far as is known now. (It should be noted that the information below is for educational purposes only and should not replace the advice of a qualified healthcare professional who should be consulted on any person related to the coronavirus.)
It is known that the current coronavirus is most effectively transmitted through infected droplets that pass from one person’s mouth or nose to another person’s mouth. For example, if a contaminated person sneezes in the face of a second person, there is a pretty good chance that the second person will also be contaminated. (It should be noted that in both cases – the person who sneezes and the person whose face is sneezed – no one may know that they have coronavirus. In most cases, it is asymptomatic – but can be passed on to someone else who may not be asymptomatic.)
It is also believed that the coronavirus can be transmitted through contact with a contaminated surface. For example, if a person with the virus spreads the germs on a door handle, a person who touches the door handle can pick up the germs. If you then touch your face with the affected hand, you can pass the virus on to yourself in this way.However, the transmitting method is less probable than direct mouth-to-nose transmitting.
How does that relate to sexual health? Of course, if sneezing or coughing can transmit these infected droplets, this can also be kissing. Couples engaged in kissing that has a partner infected are therefore at significant risk of getting both couples infected.
What about other sexual acts? No other versions of the coronavirus have been found to be sexually significant. However, it stands to reason that a woman who is infected with the coronavirus, for example, does oral sex with a man who then touches his penis and face, increases the risk of infection very well.
Other seemingly innocent acts related to sexual health could also cause problems. For example, it might also be possible to go on a date and share food (“You have to try it!”) Or drink wine from the glass of a date.
There will be something like online dating applications.. How many people regularly wipe their phone screens thoroughly? Swiping right with an infected finger can potentially cause a problem.
Conclusion: If a person believes they are infected, it is best to (1) test immediately and (2) avoid sexual contact (and another physical contact) until their health is known. And it is important that people watch out for possible infected surfaces – that’s why they often wash or disinfect their hands and also screens or other objects that they frequently touch.
Hopefully, coronavirus will soon be brought under control and will still not be a problem for sexual health. In the meantime, men should continue to apply high-quality penis health oil regularly (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven to be mild and skin-friendly). Look for an oil that contains a number of vitamins (A, B5, C, D, and E) to help maintain penile health. Also, make sure the oil contains alpha-lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant that prevents free radical damage to sensitive skin.
