A Playboy model has started wearing face masks and gloves in the bedroom.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Nathali Pereira believes it’s important to take “extra precautions beyond condoms”.
She’s followed the advice of Harvard doctors, who have recommended donning protective gear before you get jiggy.
The former Miss BumBum contestant said: “I feel much more protected. It's either wearing gloves or nothing.
“Today protection with gloves and masks is an extra precaution beyond condoms.”
While Nathali’s boyfriend found it odd to romp in masks at first, the couple are now used to it.
The 28-year-old Brazilian said: “We can’t help but protect ourselves.
“At first he found it very strange, but now we got used to it. This is the new normal.”
While Nathali is on board with wearing masks and gloves in the bedroom, she’s not keen on the idea of having more virtual sex.
Some sexperts recommended getting intimate over the phone or via video chat – but the Playboy star worries naughty clips of her could get leaked.
She explained: "I don't trust the internet, there is no concrete security for us to have virtual sex.”
If you want to take precautions like the Playboy star, listen up.
Researchers from Harvard University ranked different sexual scenarios based on how likely you are to catch Covid-19 from them.
Abstinence and masturbation were “low risk”, while having sex with people in their household or not were ranked as "high risk".
The experts admit that abstinence isn't simple which is why they're urging people to take safety measures in the bedroom.
Scientists warned people to avoid kissing and recommended showering before and after sex and wearing masks while getting frisky.
In the study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Dr Jack Turban, who led the research, said: “For some patients, complete abstinence from in-person sexual activity is not an achievable goal.
“In these situations, having sex with persons with whom they are self-quarantining is the safest approach.
“Those unable to take this approach may benefit from risk reduction counseling, which has proven effective in other realms of sexual health.
“Patients should also be provided with information about how to reduce the risk for other sexually transmitted infections as well as the importance of continued use of contraceptives during this time to prevent unwanted pregnancy.”
