1 in 5 Dutch singles has had sex during Corona lockdown
Many Dutch singles haven’t had sex since before the lockdown and 1.5 meter social distancing. This is the case for half of single young men and women, and for one third of the single men. From among all singles, 1 in 5 has had sex with a partner during the corona period, but this is now usually someone they have sex with more often (a sex buddy) than a one-night stand. Rutgers and SOA Aids Nederland investigated the influence of the COVID pandemic and measures on the sexual health of Dutch adolescents and adults, and access to sexual healthcare.
