That’s a good question. I read a comment recently by someone who said, “The orgy is over.” I don’t know if it referred to wasting resources generally, or casual sexual behaviour or both, but it struck me.

Might the current fear of casual touch eventually lead people to prefer unions that build more slowly? Is so, that could be a good thing. STIs rose sharply over the last few years. The human race was experimenting with casual, even compulsive, sexual behavior. Maybe a course correction is underway.

Perhaps social distancing can help new potential lovers to get to know each other better before engaging in closer contact. Without lots of friend hugs, the hunger for real mates may also increase…at least in those who don’t get lost online.
