The study findings which will be published in coming days on a preprint server has numerous implications including the fact that oral sex and sex of any kind can help spread the monkeypox disease and that further validates the fact that the new monkeypox virus is also a sexually transmitted disease. (STI).

However, it should also be noted that people can also get infected via material and surface contamination and studies are already showing that hospital and even homes of the infected are simply full of contaminated articles and surfaces that can easily infect others.
In fact, in certain recent cases involving women and children, it has now come to light that certain bisexual men who have never had their sexual activities with other men made known to their families were actually responsible for the spread of the virus in their homes!

Hence gay men who have a fetish of having semen spewed on their faces during sex or like emulating what they see on porn online should try to abstain from such practices from the time being! The same goes for straight guys who like contaminating the faces of their female companions! Men who masturbate should also wash their hands properly prior to touching their faces or eyes! Both gay men and also women who have a fetish for swallowing semen should also abstain from such practices…semen has no nutritional value besides being laden with a variety of pathogens including the various herpes viruses etc.
