SF City Clinic is not able to test patients for coronavirus. If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms like cough, fever, or shortness of breath, and are concerned about coronavirus, please contact your primary care provider.
At City Clinic we want to help you have healthy sex AND stay safe from the coronavirus (COVID-19). The infection is real and continues to spread in the community. Breathing, panting, shouts and groans, mouths, lips, eyes, spit, semen, anal play, and shared toys are all ways that COVID-19 can spread.
How can we continue to have a healthy sex life in a COVID-19 era? Here are some tips:
Talk with partners about COVID-19 like other safer sex topics (like PrEP, condoms, etc). Ask: do they have COVID-19 symptoms, or have they had symptoms in the last 10 days? Have they been diagnosed with COVID-19?
Before you get down, have a frank and hot conversation with a potential sex partner about what your mutual COVID rules are: Only from behind? Masks on? No kissing? Condoms? Keep it blunt, honest, and descriptive.
