The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our lives upside down, but now thanks to the vaccine the future is looking hopeful and according to Ella Paradis and some of the best dating apps, being fully vaccinated may even make you sexier.
This seriously testing time has had us all searching for the best sustainable facemasks, then looking for the best skin care products to fight maskne, and desperately reading self-care day ideas and tips to try and deal with all the stress.
However, there may be some good news at the end of this very long pandemic journey. The vaccine doesn’t just mean protection but could mean your dating prospects soar. Known for its incredible range of sex toys, and boasting some of the best hands-free vibrators on the market, Ella Paradis has shared some very interesting info. They conducted a study that found that 54% of those surveyed would be more inclined to have sex with a new partner if they were vaccinated.
They also found that: “38.1% said they are requiring current or potential partners to be fully vaccinated to engage with them sexually.”
Being fully vaccinated for covid-19 may really become the ultimate chat up line of 2021, and several dating apps are showing their support for the vaccine effort.
According to the BBC (opens in new tab), the likes of Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, Match, and Plenty of Fish have all signed onto the UK’s government scheme to let users display their vaccination status—this also started in the US in May.
You can now put a badge on your profile that says you’ve had the vaccine, so all your love interests can see. However, just how this will be verified—whether a potential partner has actually had the vaccine—remains to be seen.
Several of the apps also offer incentives to encourage users to get theirs done. Like free credits, access to premium features that usually have costs, and apps like Bumble are also letting users share pandemic dating preferences, like their views on mask-wearing and social distancing.
