Can coronavirus be sexually transmitted? We do not know if COVID-19 can be spread through vaginal or anal sex. We know that other coronaviruses do not easily spread through sex. This means sex is not likely a common way that COVID-19 spreads. However, if you’re close enough to have sex it’s likely that you’re close enough to transmit COVID-19 through water droplets. Kissing is one of the main routes of infection for COVID-19. Even if you don’t kiss your partner, COVID-19 can be transmitted through breathing near each other – and you’re likely to be touching the same surfaces as other people in the bedroom. It is also likely that COVID-19 can be found in some other bodily fluids.
