How to have SEX with monkeypox: Bizarre CDC guide revealed
The CDC has issued bizarre guidelines telling Americans infected with monkeypox to have sex by masturbating at least six feet away from their partners, among other recommendations.
According to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anyone who has the disease should not have sex.
But for those who ignore the advice, the agency has published an unusual list of dos and don’ts under the sheets.
One of the tips was to have sex while fully clothed to make sure all the rashes are covered and even to avoid kissing.
Other advice was to wash hands, fetish gear and clothing immediately afterward, and even consider having sex virtually, such as over the phone.
Humans catch monkeypox by touching contagious skin lesions, but it can also be spread through the air during ‘persistent’ face-to-face contact.
It can take up to four weeks for anyone infected with monkeypox to recover from the disease, with about eight days after infection for symptoms to appear.
A further 12 cases of monkeypox were registered in America on Wednesday, with the largest daily increase since the outbreak, bringing the total to 85 cases.
Cases are currently being told to self-isolate or be hospitalized, following the early Covid pandemic.
Worldwide, there are more than 2,000 in about 40 countries outside of West Africa.
Bizarre advice from health chiefs on how to have sex without getting a disease
Health chiefs in Canada and America have issued bizarre advice on how not to get Covid or monkey pox while having sex.
June 2020: New York City on how not to catch Covid during sex
- Avoid casual sex and orgies whenever possible;
- Use physical barriers ‘like walls’ during sex;
- Join sexy “Zoom Parties” or chat rooms.
july 2020: Canadian health chiefs on how to avoid contracting Covid during sex.
- Use glory holes to avoid catching the virus;
- These allow sexual contact ‘but prevent close personal contact’.
June 2022: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to avoid getting monkeypox from an infected person.
- Masturbating at a distance of one and a half meters from your sex partner;
- Keep your clothes on and cover up any rashes;
- don’t kiss each other;
- Wash yourself after sex;
- Consider using virtual sex and chat rooms if possible.
Earlier this month, the CDC published its guidelines on monkeypox sex on its page on “Social Gatherings, Safer Sex, and Monkeypox.”
“If you or a partner has monkey pox, the best way to protect yourself and others is not to have sex (oral, anal, vaginal) and not to kiss or touch each other’s bodies while you are sick, especially rashes or sores.” ‘ it says.
†[But] If you or your partner have (or think you have) monkey pox and you decide to have sex, consider the following to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.”
The guidance echoes Canadian health chiefs’ recommendation in the first year of the Covid pandemic that people use glory holes to have sex.
The British Columbia Center for Disease Control said people should “use barriers, such as walls (eg, glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close personal contact.”
A glory hole is a small opening in a wall through which a person can have sex with as little skin-to-skin contact as possible.
In 2020, New York City health chiefs also offered advice on how to have sex without getting Covid, telling residents to “make it a little kinky.”
In a three-page memo, they told people to avoid casual sex, orgies, or sexual contact with anyone outside their household.
But in cases where this was not possible, they said people should be “creative” and use “physical barriers” such as walls.
Virtual sex in “Zoom Parties” was also recommended, as well as in Internet chat rooms.
Monkeypox is not a sexually transmitted disease, with anyone at risk of contracting it from others if they touch a rash or skin lesion.
But the World Health Organization is currently investigating reports that the rash-causing virus can spread through semen.
Italian and German scientists say they have discovered fragments of the tropical disease in patients’ semen.
It is currently unclear whether these bits are contagious and can cause the disease in another individual.
But scientists at the Spallanzani Institute in Rome say at least one of their patients had enough fragments in their semen to suggest another person might be infected.
Officials urge gay and bisexual men to be aware of any new lesions, rashes or scabs and contact a sexual health clinic
Medical literature suggests that patients with monkeypox typically experience a flu-like fever followed by a facial rash before spreading to the rest of the body three days later.
But the CDC says that in many cases noted so far, patients have gone straight to suffering from the rash.
They add that these are often localized around the penis and anus — and in some cases, don’t spread to other parts of the body.
They would also change at different rates, with some going to pus-filled blisters while others still had fluid-filled blisters. The medical literature suggests that, in general, all rashes should progress to liquid and then pus-filled blisters at the same rate.
Most infections in the outbreak are detected among gay or bisexual men and are linked to international travel.
But at least two have now been spotted among people who haven’t traveled recently and are not associated with any known infections, suggesting it’s broadcasting under the radar.
Scientists have already expressed concern that monkey pox is likely to travel undetected in some parts of the country.
Most infections are mild and clear up on their own within four weeks. But one in 100 can be fatal, estimates suggest.
