Did Coronavirus Increase Handjob Interest? Sort Of…

Is Coronavirus leading to more handjobs?

The answer is “probably,” but more in a “sort of” and indirect capacity.

Coronavirus, as we all now know, is a highly transmittable virus. Some science suggest asymptomatic people transmit the illness to others around them. But the science on Coronavirus transmissions remains a fluid event.

Here’s the thing: People love dating, and sex. And while some people have put a morotorium on promiscuity due to social distancing, not all have. But many people have become more “safe” about their sex than usual.

This is where we step in and remind you, its the distance of a person that increases chances of transmitting COVID-19, not nessecarily the behavior. I say this because you know where I’m going.

Are people giving more handjobs due to fears regarding Coronavirus?

Probably.

But its important to understand that many of these people likely don’t believe that handjobs result in a major decrease in potential Coronavirus transmission.

Sure, avoiding kissing and fluids of any sort can certainly help reduce Coronavirus risks. And you can give and receive a handjob without kissing and even without hugging. So some reduction in risk is obvious, but the major contributing risk of distance isn’t eliminated during a handjob. I mean, you have to be in some sort of intimate proximity with another person to partake in the glories of a handjob. That is, unless you know of some magical, other-worldly handjob technique that we don’t know about.

To understand the increased interest in handjobs on the heels of Coronavirus fears, you must understand the greater, more longterm inhibitions resulting from Coronavirus.

Disease. Viruses. Sicknesses. Illnesses.

Coronavirus hardly invented any of those terms. Instead, its raised awareness that our actions and behavior can protect us, or equally expose us.

Sex comes with risks, namely in the way of STDs. And handjobs are less of an STD risk. So it stands to reason that in a day and age of pandemic fears, the handjob stands alone as a sort of, lighthouse in the distance. Yes, pun intended.

In other words, Coronavirus as a pandemic highlights our fears over all illnesses, including STDs. It causes us to reconsider our handwashing strategy just as well as our safe sex strategy. And when we consider the latter, we can’t help but lament over the joys of the safer handjob option.

So yes, Coronavirus has helped increase interest in handjob dating. But not in the shallow way that people think a handjob protects them from the virus. Its because Coronavirus is a reminder that our hygiene and our sex practices either help us stay healthy, or doom us. The handjob, as fortune stands, is a less reckless way to enjoy sexual pleasures.

As a reminder, don’t allow handjobs to give you or your partner a false sense of safety, particularly from a virus transmission. And always follow your local pandemic safety protocols so we can all get through this together.
