The Dutch have their own way of getting through isolation.
The BBC reports that singles in the Netherlands were suggested by The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) for fund a “sex buddy” to get them through the quarantine.
This suggestion was reportedly made as part of an official guidance handed down on “coronavirus and sexuality.” This report sounds like a real page-turner.
Dutch officials arrived at this recommendation after they received criticism for an “intelligent lockdown” that would create a five-foot distance between any house guests. Now they’re saying that you should have one person around, but that’s it.
The RIVM recently said “it makes sense that as a single [person] you also want to have physical contact” this is when the sex buddy amendment was added to the rules.
“Discuss how best to do this togethe. For example, meet with the same person to have physical or sexual contact (for example, a cuddle buddy or ‘sex buddy’), provided you are free of illness. Make good arrangements with this person about how many other people you both see. The more people you see, the greater the chance of (spreading) the coronavirus.”
They changed the rules once again on May 16th to just advised singles to “minimize the risk of the coronavirus during intimacy and sex.”
