With social distancing and quarantining becoming the new normal, we look at how people are (and aren’t) getting it on in these trying times.

At least one expert has already shared publicly that it’s okay to fuck your frisky friends if they are already living in your home. Celebrity medical-type guy Dr. Oz told TMZ that being in the bone zone will stop you from engaging in domestic combat.

So, nookie with your live-in lover—safe.
