In what is likely one of the more unusual letters to come across health minister Adrian Dix's desk, porn website YouPorn is offering $100,000 to help build glory holes around the province.
The letter follows Tuesday's sex tips from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, which recommended "choose sexual positions that limit face-to-face contact... use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact."
To support the creation of more glory holes, YouPorn vice president Charlie Hughes has penned a letter to Dix.
"We applaud the BC Centre for Disease Control's guide for its recommendation of the use of glory holes during intercourse to limit face-to-face contact during sex, in the name of safety," he writes in the letter, which was released publicly.
The porn executive goes on to agree with the provincial health organization about the fact people will and should keep having sex during the pandemic.
