Clinical sexologist Dr Eve says COVID-19 is not a sexually transmitted virus and should not be stigmatised.

While you should not be kissing when getting intimate with a partner amid the coronavirus outbreak, clinical sexoligist Dr Eve says this may be the time to get creative.

She has emphasised that COVID-19 is not a sexually transmitted virus and should not be stigmatised and reminds listeners to continue to abide by the basic preventative guidelines such as washing hands.

While Dr Eve suggests ways you can be sexual without putting one another at risk, she insists that social distancing is needed if your partner is infected.

There is no evidence to show, there is no research yet so what I am doing is using the evidence that there is around COVID-19 to extrapolate that towards sexuality.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

It is not a sexually transmitted virus ... the fact is that sex is very juicy and there are a lot of fluids, so let's follow the protocols that are in place.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

I think it's a creative time for couples to be sexual and doing thing sexually a little differently.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

Wash your face and your hands before, during and after sexual activity. Wet wipes have to be your best friend, just keep wiping your faces. Wash your hands before you start engaging in sexual play.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

Exploring bodies is a beautiful thing to do, not with gloves, use your hands and just keep wiping with sanitiser. We have opportunity for very healthy and clean mutual masturbation in the shower. You cannot use your saliva ... you have to use lubricants.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

Wash your hands before you start engaging in sexual play and touching with each other. I wish people would walk around with a bottle of lube, bottle of sanitiser and condoms....
