We’ve all been there. You feel a cold coming on – or your partner does – but… you’re also feeling that staring in your nether region. What do you do? Sickness be damned… you’re going in? Or, is sex a no go zone until the risk of infection is gone.
I did an informal survey over the weekend. Not surprisingly, the results were all over the place. But some of the reasoning intrigued me. So… here’s what they said:
- I have a few friends who are super sexual. For them, to a person, unless they or their partner is incapacitated, deathbed sick.. they’re going in. The rationale.. if they feel good enough to wants sex it can’t be that serious and if you’re spending a lot of time together you’re going to be exposed to each others’ germs anyway.
- Other friends, one on particular, who is super sexual but a bit more practical perhaps. Her view was to ‘shut that shit down and live to fuck another day’ – thats a quote. Her perspective was that all you would end up doing by having sex then is passing the sickness backhand forth and extending the time that you are both miserable. She was, however, very open to a handjob, mutual masturbation or other non germ speaking ways of scratching that itch
- For the less sexual friends it wasn’t even a long discussion. If you’re a germ carrier, stay the hell away. Point Finale.
In retrospect those perspectives are likely not too surprising. But, how about you… if you’re partner is feeling a cold coming on…. are ten on their own or are you diving in?
