Quarantine has been really detrimental to many aspects in life. One of the biggest ones? Fucking. For us hornballs, walling up inside our homes or apartments alone has made us feel like we are about to burst. Masturbation can only go so far for those looking for a bit of skin-to-skin contact. With the world opening-up again, people are asking themselves if getting back to their casual hookup business is a good idea. Is it safe to bang someone right now? Is it safe to bang someone who isn’t even your significant other? People who love and live the fuckbuddy lifestyle relish in the benefits, no-strings-attached nature of casual sex. They love that there is no emotional stuff to look out for and it can be just sex. But what happens when the fuckbuddy lifestyle can literally case some harm beyond the regular STD scenario? Who knew that having a fuckbuddy could literally be dangerous to your family members! So, I guess the question remains: Is it cool to have a fuckbuddy in quarantine? Want my honest opinion? My answer is no. It’s not cool and it’s not abiding by the natural rules of health. Just because your local coffee shop is opening doesn’t mean that anything has changed since the world lit on fire earlier this year. That being said, the fuckbuddy crowd is full of rulebreakers. So, if you’re going to do it… here are some good things to follow so that you can make your casual hookup experience one that is as safe as possible.

 

Get to know your fuckbuddy partner

Ok, yes. Casual sex is supposed to be… casual. But, you are going to want to know a few things about the person you are about to bone before you let it all go. For one, you’ll want to find out if your partner has been tested for, has or has had the ‘rona. That’s some valuable information and very fair to ask. If they have it tell them to stay away! If they’ve had it, you might feel a little safer… just make sure they’ve been quarantined for at least 14 days since. And, while were on the subject of the 2-week isolation period, make sure your fuckbuddy hasn’t been on a plane or put themselves at risk recently. You are also going to want to make sure that your fuckbuddy partner isn’t a sex fiend. This probably sounds strange coming from a fuckbuddy site that promotes tons of sex, but truly make sure that your friend-with-benefits isn’t banging everyone in town. Each new person they are exposed to poses a potential threat to you!

 

Protect yourself, and we don’t just mean condoms! 

Before we go any further into this subject, just know that condoms should be a given. Now that we’re in the age of the ‘rona, you’re going to want to make sure you are doubly protected. For your fuckbuddy date, make sure you’ve got some things on your body and in hand. For example, make sure you and your fuckbuddy partner are both wearing masks. Next, throw on some gloves for good measure. And, make sure you’ve got some hand sanitizer thrown into your bag before you meet up. Basically, come prepared. You want to be able to disinfect your hands if you decide to ditch the gloves. Furthermore, hot sex can lend itself to heavy breathing. You’ll want to make sure you’re covered in that department and that your partner is literally covered, as in their mouth can breathe all over you while you guys are getting raunchy!

 

The safest types of sex to have

Ok, here’s the fun stuff you’re really interested in, right? What can you do. Again, my honest answer is NOTHING. But, you’re a little horny hornball and you’re going to break the rules, so here goes. If you are going to avoid anything at all, avoid making out! That’s literally where the whole ‘rona situation starts. Keep masks on at all times and don’t get kissy-kissy with your casual sex hookup friend. Period! Penetration sex also isn’t the smartest move because when two people are bumping uglies, their faces are in such close proximity that they are bound to exchange some fluids… the wrong kind. And, unless you’ve got a 6ft wang (PS, if you do – congratulations!) you are not far enough away from your partner to be safe. But don’t worry, there are lots of fun sex things you can do that don’t involve penetration and will keep you at least an arm’s length away. Make sure you totally avoid oral sex because that’s asking for all kinds of trouble. This is going to sound pretty silly but the safest kind of sex that you can have is glory hole sex! If you’ve ever been into the glory hole fantasy, now is your damn time to shine like a star. Why is this the safest? Because it literally keeps your bodies apart, your faces apart, and allows for the action to take place! Now, I am not going to pretend creating or even finding a glory hole is going to be easy. But, it’s what you should be doing if you’re going to be having sex during this time!

 

Final thoughts?

Get digital people! Like I have stated a bunch of times in this article, sex isn’t really that responsible right now. Why not enjoy some fun video chatting, sexting, or phone sex with your fuckbuddy partner? It’s safe, fun, and totally exciting.
