The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was already suffering from a massive loss of trust from the American public, but its latest guidance appeared to embrace that failing credibility with an appeasement to base desires simultaneously flirting with panic porn.
When the public first learned about the possibility of the monkeypox virus becoming this year’s COVID, the story about another pandemic was seemingly put on the back burner. Many speculated in May that, ahead of “Pride” celebrations in June, the media was attempting to avoid stigmatizing the outbreak that some believe was linked to an LGBTQ festival in Spain.
After the world was shut down in 2020 for COVID, rather than genuinely trying to stop an outbreak of monkeypox – which is transmitted through contact and bodily fluids – from becoming a pandemic, the CDC is letting the public know how best to keep having sex after contracting the virus.
Newsmax contributor Dr. David Samadi posted to Twitter some of the highlights from the CDC’s June guidance on “Social Gatherings, Safer Sex and Monkeypox” that included, “having sex with no in-person contact” and “Masturbating together at a distance of at least 6 feet, without touching any rash or sores.”
The CDC has new guidelines for sex with Monkeypox.
-having sex with no in-person contact.
-Masturbating together at a distance of at least 6 feet, without touching any rash or sores.
-having sex with clothes on or covering areas where sores are present

In its guidance, the CDC took an “inclusive” approach and made sure to include a wide array of sexual practices that could result in the spread of the virus by noting that it could also be carried by objects. Therefore, they cautioned against, “touching fabrics and objects during sex that were used by a person with monkeypox and that have not been disinfected, such as bedding, towels, fetish gear, and sex toys.”

Samadi went on to post, “I am not joking,” with screenshots of the guidance that included a jovial cartoon of a diverse crowd of people celebrating “pride” noting “a rave, party or club where there is minimal clothing and where there is direct, personal, often skin-to-skin contact has some risk.”
CDC guidelines are the gift that keeps on giving. "Have virtual sex," they advise. Masturbate, but with social distancing! pic.twitter.com/EG2cfbZxp4

The absurdity of the guidance led many to mock the institution outright for one notable piece of protective equipment that was left out.
only to spice things up! 😉

And, as society has devolved to having to ask basic questions like “What is a woman?” others pointed out how much the definition of sex has changed to satisfy the woke with the CDC describing “in-person contact” as unnecessary to the act.
Newest question, “what is sex?”. It used to involve in-person contact but I guess that’s no longer the case?

None of that is sex.

Meanwhile, the so-called experts lauded the CDC for their recommendations because “people are people.”
The CDC actually clearly tells people infected with monkeypox not to have sex with others.
But people are people. And some may decide to have sex anyways. In that case, it is important to recommend practices that reduce risks. 2/2 pic.twitter.com/ZDhGcEo2EK

Of course, many also called out the CDC for what they were actually doing with the guidance. Their concern in posting these cautions is not in protecting the public from spreading any communicable disease, many believed, but rather to aid in normalizing behaviors that had long been considered deviant practices.
On that note, the public made certain to point out that it wouldn’t be long before these types of guidances were promoted in government-run schools.
Soon to be posted on your Kindergartener’s bulletin board!

Waiting for urgent pleas to add this to middle school sex-ed curriculum with no opt out provisions for parents. And because you’re never too young for knowledge, maybe Blues Clues will do a special segment on it featuring their friends from the pride parade.

And if the hypocrisy was still in doubt, let it not be forgotten that the World Health Organization recently agreed to prioritize changing the name of monkeypox over concerns the moniker was “discriminatory and stigmatizing.”
