'Proud to be Canadian': BCCDC 'glory holes' sex tip makes international headlines

The news has also reached the Vice President of YouPorn, Charlie Hughes, who has stated that the company will offer a $100,000 grant to support the construction of glory holes B.C.-wide.

The BC Centre for Disease Control has released a number of safe sex tips in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has some rather surprising suggestions. 

For one, the centre notes that the positions best suited for sex during the pandemic are those with "minimal face-to-face contact." They also note that it is best to use barriers when possible. 

And what exactly constitutes a barrier?

Walls, such as glory holes, that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact.

And while glory holes may seem like a reasonable way to prevent transmission of the virus, the suggestion made quite a splash on social media. In fact, the search term "glory holes" was trending on Twitter Canada last night, dropping jaws across the country and around the globe.

TMZ also wrote an article about the BCCDC's latest safe-sex advice, noting that New York City also suggested intercourse through walls in June. That said, the article highlights that the city, "did not outright call them glory holes … sorry, NYC, Canada is holier than thou!"

The news has also reached the Vice President of YouPorn, Charlie Hughes, who has stated that the company will offer a $100,000 grant to support the construction of glory holes B.C.-wide. 

The BCCDC also recommends washing your body with soap and water before and after sex, and not sharing toys with partners. Wearing a mask during sex can also help, and there are a wide variety of ones to choose from. 

Keeping your number of sexual partners low is key, as is communication with your partner(s) about the precautions you and your partner are taking to stay safe.

But when it comes down to it, the BCCDC says you are your safest sex partner, and masturbation will not spread COVID-19.
