Less sex or no sex during Covid Corona world wide recession, report shows


Herland Report: Less sex, no sex or fewer partners during Corona Covid: A survey of Americans by dating website found that more than 70 per cent of single Americans did not have sex at all from March to October.

A US study by the Kinsey Institute in June found Americans in general were having less sex – one reason being tension between couples isolated together at home.

A survey in Turkey shows pattern consistent with findings in China, US and Britain: people are having sex less often and fewer partners.

Results suggest people are afraid of spreading Covid-19 during sex, researchers say. There is growing evidence that people across the world are having sex less frequently during the coronavirus pandemic, writes Stephen Chen for South China Morning Post.

Studies in China, the United States, Britain and Turkey appearing to confirm the trend.

New Book Trump. The Battle for America by Bestselling author Hanne Nabintu Herland, Herland Report
Bestselling Scandinavian author, Hanne Nabintu Herland’ new book today explains why US President Trump fights for regular Americans and challenges Globalism and the ultra-rich elite hegemony, titled: “Trump – The Battle for America”. The book cuts through the mainstream media rhetoric and brings ground-breaking understanding of the driving forces behind the current near civil war situation in the United States.


Researchers said in July that British people’s sexual desire had been found to have declined immediately after they were subjected to lockdown measures in spring – before later rebounding after extended spells of isolation as people used sex to “ease stress and anxiety or overcome boredom”.

And a nationwide survey in Turkey has suggested the pandemic has reduced sexual activity significantly.



The pattern among the country’s population, which is predominantly Muslim – meaning homosexuality, affairs and sex before marriage are forbidden – was the same as for other races and faiths, with the average frequency of sex among adults declining from nearly twice a week to slightly over once, researchers found.

Governments in some countries have issued guidance for safe sex during the pandemic. Dr Theresa Tam, the chief public health officer in Canada, recommended avoiding kissing, and wearing a mask when being intimate with a stranger or anyone at risk from Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

The coronavirus’ impact on sex had previously been observed in China. Anhui Medical University researchers found that nearly half of participants in an online survey in March – the peak of China’s outbreak – had lost sexual partners and over a third were having sex less often.

Most respondents to the survey, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in July, said they would seek more sex or sexual partners after the pandemic.

The Chinese researchers expected different patterns in other countries where people were less conservative about sex, and where fewer young people live with their parents than is the case in China.

“These results might suggest that individuals were afraid of disease transmission during sexual intercourse and preferred to satisfy themselves,” said the research team led by Dr Nejdet Karsiyakali of Aydinlar University in a paper published in journal Sexual Medicine on Monday.
