Covid and sex. “The pandemic has also affected” this area, denounces the Italian Federation of Scientific Sexology, “making relations between people more difficult”. The ‘Sexual Wellbeing Week’, now in its eighth edition, will be held from 27 September to 2 October, on the occasion of the International Day on the topic that is celebrated today. “Sexual health – comments Salvo Caruso, president of Fiss, gynecologist and associate professor of the University of Catania – should not be neglected. Too often, behind taboos and legacies of the past, people do not face problems with specialists that drag themselves into the time or they come to the professional’s office only when the difficulty has become unbearable. We then encounter more and more people who once we would have said elderly who face their doubts or problems in the couple after years. They are almost ashamed to talk about it although sexual health is a component of the person’s health “. “The goal of Fiss is to give a way to those who believe they have a reflection to compare, a doubt, a specific difficulty in talking about it, facilitated by the fact that the interviews with specialists will all be online”, concludes Roberta Rossi, past president of the Federation. .
