In the Bay, we’re over 150 days into quarantine and social distancing. Some of us are skin-starved, many of us even love-starved. No hugs, no spooning, no sex. No Friends. No family. It’s a lot to deal with but the truth is, many of us felt lonesome even before the pandemic pushed us further into isolation. Getting what we truly need is always a challenge so, how are we coping now? In this episode, we find out by getting intimate.
We hear from people dating non-monogamously, using dating apps and finding creative ways to stay connected to sexuality and community. We also speak with head story producer Kristina Loring for the feminist erotic audio app, Dipsea.
People Out in the Bay share their social-distance stories and offer some sexy and sweet solutions to the lack of connection we all feel from time to time, pandemic or not.
