Users of the likes of Grindr and Tinder are reporting still being approached for hook-ups.
Writing in TheNew York Times, playwright Phillip Dawkins even recounted one man becoming irked when he asked him why he wasn’t following social distancing guidelines.
“I don’t believe in this. I don’t believe the media,” the man apparently said, before blocking Dawkins.
It should go without saying, but right now, hooking up is not a good idea.
At a time when social distancing measures are being encouraged, having sex with brand new partners (or any partners that don’t live in your house and can isolate with you) only threatens to exacerbate disease spread.
Scientists have also warned that partners should take a break from getting jiggy if one is in a high-risk group, like being over 70 or pregnant.
