Men, like this one being carried into a medical center for COVID patients in Moscow, tend to get sicker from the coronavirus than women. In January, one of the first publications on those sickened by the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China, reported that three out of every four hospitalized patients were male. Data from around the world have since confirmed that men face a greater risk of severe illness and death from COVID than women and that children are largely spared. A constellation of emerging data supports this idea, including COVID outcomes in men with prostate cancer and lab studies of how androgens regulate key genes. And preliminary observations from Spain suggest that a disproportionate of men with male pattern baldness—which is linked to a powerful androgen—end up in hospitals with COVID
Among the many things Republicans hate — lattes, Drag Queen Story Hours, college dining hall protests — there is perhaps nothing quite as infuriating as the suggestion that someone, somewhere, is having pleasurable sex for non-procreative purposes. At no point has this been more apparent than during the Covid pandemic, when safe sex guidelines have become a lightning rod for right-wing discourse.
Covid advice, updates and vaccine options
The mockery was so widespread that it prompted UGA to pull the guidelines from its website. Some students speculated that Gov. However, when the information was mocked, ridiculed and criticized on social media, we decided to take it down. This is not the first time that COVID safer sex regulations have become fodder for the right-wing media machine. The post made the rounds on far-right Telegram thre as an example of left-wing sexual permissiveness taken to an extreme, as well as in anti-vaxx groups.
Of course, in the context of the full post, the Centre for Disease Control was not actively advocating for people to use glory holes to have safe sex; rather, it was citing it as an example of one of many ways to reduce risk, including washing your hands before and after sex and using condoms to limit contact with bodily fluids.
The same could be said of the UGA guidelines, which advocated for common-sense safe sex practices, such as limiting the of sexual partners you have to reduce exposure. But the mere suggestion that using a barrier or wearing a mask during sex — things that, considering what we know about COVID transmission and social distancing measures, make an awful lot of sense — appears to have struck conservatives as a prime example of ludicrous liberal overreach.
And this is a problem, because those are the people who arguably need it most.
According to Georgia state data, the demographic with the highest Covid infection rate is young adults between the ages of 18 and 29; generally speaking, the infection rate is also exploding, with the state yesterday reporting its single highest death toll since the start of the pandemic despite many institutions like UGA reopening. Obviously, many young people in Georgia are not being as cautious as they could be with respect to transmitting the virus; and some of them may even be — gasp — boinking.
