It’s Sexy September and that means we celebrate Sex all month long.
When someone hears the term, “sexual health,” they may think it refers only to avoiding an unplanned pregnancy or preventing STIs. While preventing unplanned pregnancy and staying STI-free are both parts of sexual health, sexual health is really an umbrella term that encompasses many different facets of a person’s physical and emotional well-being surrounding sex and sexuality.
On September 4th, 2012, the World Association of Sexual Health launched World Sexual Health Day to bring awareness to these issues and to help people of all sexual orientations fully understand what it all means to be a sexually healthy person.
Sexual health is an integral part of living an authentic life. Making sexual health a priority can significantly improve a person’s emotional, physical, and mental well-being, as well as enhance their intimate relationships and quality of life. Plus, sex is super fun!
SEX IN THE WORLD
Prostitution is legal and regulated in Germany, but lawmakers banned it in March to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. At the start of the summer, as this country and the rest of Europe began to reopen their economies, Germany’s prostitution ban remained in place. That has angered sex workers and brothel owners and managers, who say the prohibition has not only meant a sudden loss of income, but, more importantly, it has put the workers’ lives in danger.
To help implement measures against the spread of the coronavirus, brothel owners and managers collaborating with sex workers came up with a hygiene plan they’ve shared with health authorities.
The plan calls for sex workers and their clients to wear masks at all times except for during oral sex, where the the face of the sex worker and the face of the client needs to be 90 centimeters away from each other. The city of Hamburg has hinted it will lift the ban on sex September. 1.
Meanwhile as New York City emerges from lockdown, the famous swingers club, Checkmate located on the Upper East Side, is navigating how to get down and dirty while still staying squeaky clean. They reopened this summer after also being closed since March. Checkmate management is enforcing required non-contact temperature check upon admission to the club.
Social distancing, hand sanitizer, and masks…oh my! Sign me up for the new KINK! But seriously, if you haven’t been, you have to check it out next time you visit New York. It is the hottest sex club in the city.
While the changes have thrown a wrinkle into the revelry of the sex industry, just being back in action is sweet.
SEX AND CORONAVIRUS
With mandatory mask wearing and physical distancing of at least six feet becoming the norm around the nation, the question remains—is sex safe?
In short—it can be, but experts say any type of in-person sexual activity does carry some risk. But there are ways to have intimate contact and remain connected.
Let’s start with what we know. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, so direct contact with saliva—through kissing, for example—can easily pass the virus. While COVID-19 has not yet been found in vaginal fluid but has been found in feces. So this means that rimming (oral/anal contact) and anal sex may spread COVID-19 as well. Remember that condoms and dental dams reduce contact with saliva and feces during anal and oral sex or oral/anal contact.
WAP: WET ASS PUSSY
This song hit home with a lot of people. Whether they want to feel that way or not.
When Cardi B and Meghan Thee Stallion released the audio and video for their smash hit collaboration “WAP,” it took the nation by storm — and set some impressive records right out of the gate. The song debuted at No. 1 overnight.
Some say that WAP is one of the most offensive songs in history. As far as I’m concerned, as long as it has a hook I can hum, a chorus I can whisper to myself or an innocuous melody that aids my concentration, then it’s good music. I think the song is pretty fuckin’ rad.
I am telling you, the Cardi B-Megan Thee Stallion ode to female arousal, “WAP”, is something special. I wrote my opinion in a blog last week and it’s been getting record reads. My unpopular opinion is always popular.
