For our December issue, we asked you wonderful DIVA readers to tell us all your passion filled tales from the pandemic. Whether you U-Hauled with a stranger for your queerantine or decided to go poly in the midst of it all, you lot delivered the goods. Take a sneak peek at what love on lockdown looked like for queer women below.
“I was exploring a poly relationship that ended during lockdown. I have had more time to reflect, looking at relationship anarchy, thinking about sex with males and trans masculine people, thinking about my role in sex – having been active mostly, what’s it like to let that go?” – Jo, 58
Couples in Covid-19
“My wife’s depression means she has wanted sex less and my physical health means I have been unable to have as much sex.” – Saf, 32
Socially distanced and single
“Prior to the pandemic, I had a very active sex life with multiple people and it was very hard to be forced to give this up. I’ve been trying dating apps like Tinder, as I don’t know how I can meet people in person anymore.” – Claire, 28
PLUS, Annabelle Knight, a sexpert at Lovehoney, shares her tips and tricks for those who’ve lost their libido during Covid-19.
