Singles are allowed to find a sex buddy. This was the news item of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) that singles were waiting for en masse this week. Yet that statement seems to have been a bit premature.
RIVM has already removed the terms sex buddy and cuddly buddy from its site, a spokesperson confirms to NU.nl.. The announcement that singles are allowed to find someone sparked so many social media responses that it shocked the institution. “That is why we added some nuance to this on the website on Friday morning.”
The term sex buddy was a bit too “subtle”, the spokesperson further states. It is not the intention that singles will now seek a temporary partner at random. “The advice is more for people who are in a LAT relationship or want to have sex with someone they have known for some time. Provided you are both free of complaints. ” As a result, for example, the phrase “Agree with the same person to have physical or sexual contact” has also been removed from the website.
Loneliness is a problem that many singles now face. One of the trends is therefore to buy a pet, so that you still have something to cuddle with.
