At this point in the pandemic, it is clear that many things have changed. Perhaps one of the most significant is the way we have of relating. It is not that it is going to change, it is that it already has.

As explained by the vice president of the Catalan Society of Sexology, Antonio Bolinches to the Efe agency, confinement, the virus and the fear of contagion inhibit sexual desire. This happens in informed and stable couples and to a greater degree in which there is no commitment.

Bolinches, who is a clinical psychologist and couples therapist, points to the fact that there is fear as the main reason for this new sexual behavior, which causes us to show ourselves avoidant. Many people turn to self-masturbation or virtual sex.

“As a consequence of social distancing advice, for a time you will be given the relative importance of sexuality. In the same way that there is an economic crisis that we will have to overcome, there will also be a crisis of confidence regarding physical contact, ”he said in statements to the aforementioned media.

Deepening the debate, the therapist reflects on the immediate repercussion that COVID-19 will have in those crushes, the sexuality, and all kinds of interpersonal contact:

“In critical situations what takes value is a health and the quality of life. I would even say that if many are told that they will be immunized from COVID-19 if they are a year without sex, they would take it without hesitation, “he added.

But there is a part of the population that is left out of this behavior: young people. They are less aware and their sexuality is increasing.

“Also, they know that because of their age they are less dangerous,” says Bolinches. As he says, those under 30 years “will be the first to resume sexual normality”.

As for the already formed couples, the virus is also affecting. The forced confinement to stop its spread will translate into an increase in divorces.

According to the therapist’s estimate, 20% of couples who have been confined together will break off their relationship. The reasons are to wear and tear due to excessive and intense coexistence. Also possible disappointments for the management of the crisis against the virus.

The rest is made up of couples who will come out more united and stronger and couples who are weakened, who may recover over time, but will need therapeutic help.

The times we live in generate stress, a lot of tension frustration anxiety, and psychological distress. None of this helps a healthy coexistence, much less to facilitate sexuality.

Experts are not betting on a baby boom, given current data.
