The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control's website has an entire section dedicated to sex education during the virus pandemic. Deep within, government leading health experts suggest "glory holes" could be the safest technique to minimize virus spreading during sex.
"Use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact," the Canadian CDC wrote.
As defined by Urban Dictionary, a "Gloryhole is a hole made in a thin wall or other type of partition where a man can insert their penis for sexual stimulation by an anonymous person on the other side."
The crowdsourced online dictionary for slang words also said these holes "can be found in bathrooms in the stall wall, in private rooms found in adult bookstores, and in dark rooms and labyrinths in bathhouses. Open rooms in bathhouses with many gloryholes are called a sucktorium and often have a raised level on one side of the holes to allow everyone to stand."
Canadian CDC also suggests "masturbation" and "virtual sex" are the best methods for getting turned on during the pandemic. Still, at the same time, it allows one to practice safe sex social distancing. If one is to "masturbate with a partner(s), physical distancing will lower your chance of getting COVID-19," health officials added.
Of course, the internet went crazy, here's what people had to say about top Canadian officials advising the public to use "glory holes."
