MIAMI, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ella Paradis, trusted source for adult products, released a new study today examining whether Americans will listen to recent health guidelines for safe sex during COVID19, including wearing a mask during intercourse. The answers from our diverse correspondents may surprise you!
While nearly 55% of correspondents (54% men/43% female) do not believe one should wear a mask post pandemic, 83% of our correspondents say they will not follow this new health guidelines. Plus, only 18% said they would get tested for COVID19 within 5-7 days after sexual intercourse with a new partner.
"During quarantine we saw a healthy spike in sales, showing us that sexual pleasure is a fundamental part of mental & physical wellbeing. The strain COVID-19 put on many people's romantic lives is not something people will want to experience again. The data lines up with our theory that people are not willing to give up sex, but will step into this area more cautiously than previously," explained Ella Paradis CEO, Tino Dietrich.
"Despite the evidence suggesting that wearing a facial mask may help to minimize further spread of COVID-19," says Relationship Therapist and Owner of CouplesCandy.com Megan Harrison. "I don't believe people will change their romantic lifestyle so significantly by wearing masks during sex. The mouth is the center of many of the fundamental components of human activity. Consumption, speech, the breath, communication, kissing - all of which play an important role within intimate relationships. Masks would drastically alter the experience and I fail to see how people would have the discipline to wear them," remarked Megan Harrison, Relationship Therapist and founder of couplescandy.com.
