Earlier in the month, it was reported that porn sites have been cashing in on the coronavirus outbreak, with the platforms posting films of people having sex in hazmat suits in an twisted new trend. 

Videos titled ‘Deserted Wuhan’ and ‘TSA Agent Detains Woman Suspected of Coronavirus’ are among others that have been appearing on their pages.   

The kooky clips feature actors in hazmat suits, face masks or hospital gowns engaging in sexual intercourse in what looks like medical facilities.

Spicy – the male half of porn duo Spicy x Rice – told Vice: ‘I think people are attracted to COVID-19 themed porn the same way people who are scared of their shadow are attached to horror movies: We are all searching for things that make us come alive.’ 

‘COVID-19 is something that brings fear and mystery to pretty much everyone in the world right now… You need to be able to feel something, and what better way to make you feel something than the global crisis we are all in right now.’

According to the actor, some of their videos contain key information on how to prevent the spread of the disease and were made with the intention to educate people.   

‘We thought we would use our porn as an avenue to get some legitimate information out with some comic relief included to get people interested and reduce our chances of being banned,’ Spicy added to the publication. 

The European country has the highest coronavirus death rate in the world

At least 125,000 patients have been infected and 4,000 have died worldwide since the outbreak began last December.

The virus has been spreading between humans in four continents since February 28, the WHO has admitted. 

The killer coronavirus rapidly spreading around the world can survive in the air for three hours, scientists have found.

US government researchers, who worked with other experts, also found the deadly infection can live on surfaces for up to three days.

Tests showed the virus can survive on copper for four hours, cardboard for an entire day and up to 72 hours on plastic and steel.
