Twitter goes crazy as health officials in Canada advise using glory holes
Just when we thought that this year couldn't possibly get any weirder, 2020 has proved us all wrong once again.
The B.C. Centre for Disease Control has recommended that Canadians should use "glory holes" to prevent against the spread of COVID-19 during sex.

In advice for enjoying safe intercourse during the pandemic, which was posted on their website, the Centre said that people should "use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact."
A "glory hole" is a hole made in a wall or other type of partition where a man can insert their penis for sexual stimulation.
Only Canada would recommend the use of #Gloryholes for safe practice during COVID 😭😂 Just when we thought that this year couldn't get any crazier, 2020 has proved us all wrong once again— Ferrgggy (@ferrgggy) July 22, 2020
Other tactics that the Centre suggests for stopping the spread of the virus during intercourse include "wearing face masks or coverings" during sex and "choosing sexual positions that limit face-to-face contact."

Meanwhile, the Centre also noted that virtual sex, i.e. video dates, phone chats, sexting, online chat rooms and group cam rooms, are ways to engage in sexual activity with "no chance" of spreading COVID-19.
#gloryholes is trending in Canada 🤦♂️. Tips: Guys make sure use 1/4" "gloryhole" plywood board when "erecting" your barrier. This will allow for minimal penis length loss....🤣🤣🤣...and don't cheap out and get particle board, you may get slivers.— Hung No-Weh (@WehHung) July 22, 2020
While COVID-19 should always be taken seriously, Canadians have been taking to social media to have a little fun with the Centre's advice.

"The virus has been found in semen and feces (poop). It is not yet clear if the virus can be transmitted through sex," The B.C. Centre for Disease Control adds.
"You are your safest sex partner; your next-safest sex partner(s) is/are the person(s) you live with, or the person(s) who has close contact with only you and no one else."
