Healthcare workers in Turkey have been having sex less often during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to recent study in the International Journal of Impotence Research.
In May 2020, a research team surveyed 185 pandemic hospital employees (average age 31 years) in Istanbul. Respondents answered questions about their sexual function, frequency, positions, and methods of protection.
Overall, sexual desire and frequency had decreased since the start of the pandemic, the authors reported. Respondents were also spending less time on foreplay and intercourse. They used face-to-face sexual positions less often as well.
About half the respondents thought COVID-19 could be spread through sexual activity.
