CDC Issues Directives about Monkeypox and Safer Sex

If you or your partner have (or think you might have) monkeypox and you decide to have sex, consider the following to reduce the chance of spreading the virus:

  • 1. Have virtual sex with no in-person contact.
  • 2. Masturbate together at a distance of at least 6 feet, without touching each other and without touching any rash or sores.
  • 3. Consider having sex with your clothes on or covering areas where rash or sores are present, reducing as much skin-to-skin contact as possible.
  • 4. Avoid kissing.
  • 5. Remember to wash your hands, fetish gear, sex toys and any fabrics (bedding, towels, clothing) after having sex
  • 6. Limit your number of partners to avoid opportunities for monkeypox to spread.
