A New York City government organisation is telling people that they should be masturbating during the current coronavirus outbreak.

With the coronavirus endemic affecting the entire world, people are finding different and creative ways to cope with this sudden outbreak. While some are rediscovering family time others are pursuing their hobbies within the confines of their homes and also doing various house chores which were normally left for the house help.

In these trying times, one sexual health study suggests another way to lessen our stress levels.

 

The official Twitter account of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene put out a tweet saying, “Kissing can spread COVID-19 and rimming might spread it... You are your safest sex partner. Masturbation will not spread COVID-19, especially if you wash your hands (and any sex toys) with soap and water.”

Studies have shown that masturbation has various mental and physical health benefits. Masturbation has been known to release tension, improve sleep quality, improve concentration, improve sex and also relieve menstrual cramps.
