The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has delivered intimate guidance for those considering sexual activity in an age of monkeypox. The tips come under the published heading Social Gatherings, Safer Sex and Monkeypox.
The CDC set out in its two-page release the death rate of monkeypox is thought to be one percent, but “possibly” higher in immunocompromised individuals, and therefore has a list of warnings, cautions, guidance and associated points to be taken into consideration by anyone considering spending time with another.
Some of the guidance includes masturbating at least six feet away from a partner, avoiding kissing, having virtual sex, and “having sex with your clothes on or covering areas where rash or sores are present.”
The CDC makes plain its advice comes because “monkeypox spreads through close skin-to-skin contact and any person can spread the disease.”
