Covid Killed The Copulating

The destruction wreaked by the Chinese Wuhan Virus did not end with the deaths; it also apparently killed intimacy with young Americans.

As a result of the pandemic and social distancing, 55% of young, single Americans turned to technology to be sexually intimate. As the country begins to reopen, new insights from dating app Plenty of Fish show that while 42% of singles are open to physical intimacy after the pandemic and are eager to meet new people, two-thirds will continue to be just as virtually connected after the pandemic as they were during, relying on video chats (61%), sexting (54%) and phone sex (47%).

Twenty years from now, America will be a barren, childless wasteland which will resemble the current states of Britain, France, and Germany. Considering who their parents will be, that’s probably a good thing.

According to the study, 64% of singles said being virtually intimate during the pandemic changed what they consider intimacy to be. Nearly 6 in 10 (57%) respondents now place higher value on other types of intimacy, like emotional or intellectual intimacy, while 45% find less value in physical connection.

Who in their right minds would be satisfied with “virtual intimacy?” Sending texts to a partner is nothing like being there and exploring each other’s body. I do not understand this generation at all.

  1. Virtual intimacy is in my opinion…virtually NO intimacy. I am a very touchy-feely person so I need that in person contact. I did see a cute baby the other day who was around 6 weeks old and his shirt said “mom & dad didn’t stay 6′ apart”.


    1. Pretty much my thoughts exactly. Between the pandemic and so many people being out of their minds, Kyle and Erik have zero interest in girlfriends. A lot of his friends think the same way. It’s sad, because schools don’t hold dances anymore, and no one really holds parties. Kids aren’t meeting people of the opposite sex.
