10 – COVID-19, Sex, & Relationships

It seems like all anyone can talk about these days is the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. One way I thought I could add a voice of reason to the discussions about COVID-19 is to talk about some of the information about COVID-19, sex and relationships that I have seen circulating around on the internet. Like things about sex boosing your immune function. Spoiler alert, we don’t actually know! I will also talk about New York City’s safer sex memo, and some research on relationships and on loneliness.

Before I dive into the research, I talk about studies on COVID-19 sex and relationships that you can participate in right now! And also Jeremy and I talk about our pandemic and social-isolation coping.

Sex and Immune Function! What do we know? Do we know things? Let’s find out!
