The talk of the town these days is the novel coronavirus. As it continues to sweep across nations, many are taking the necessary steps to secure their safety through self-quarantine and isolation.

In light of this dilemma, as a way of curtailing the panic, we posed this hypothetical question to a few ladies. “You’re quarantined with the last person you had sex with. Are you happy or mad as hell?” Here is what they told Flair.

“I’d be extremely happy to be quarantined with the last person I had sex with because that person is my fiancé, and it’s the sex I’ll be enjoying for a lifetime!”

– A.R., 28, engaged

“I’d be very happy for the quarantine because the interaction that we share is always amazing: good sex, cuddling, chilling, and having great conversation. Over time, however, I’m sure with the quarantine, I will get annoyed. We’ll get on each other’s nerves, and I’ll want my own space. So I guess it’ll be bittersweet. But I’ll be happy, for the most part, because I’ll come around, act crazy, and we’ll be good again.”

– T.S., 35, it’s complicated

“I would be happy. He is a good person – one that I can reason with. We can have fun, and we would definitely have great sex.”

– K.M., 31, single

“Oh, dear! If I were quarantined with the last man I had sex with, I would be happy, very happy, like baby-making happy!”

– P.W., 34, in a relationship

“I wouldn’t be happy, but I’m not sure if ‘mad’ is the word, either. It’s done and over with him. He, on the other hand, is still all up in his feelings over me. So I’m sure he’s going to want to talk about it, telling me how much he misses me, how great the sex was and everything. By the time quarantine is over, he might be dead. So let’s not.”

– S.C., 37, single

“The last person I had sex with was the last relationship I was in, and that didn’t end well. Even if we were quarantined together, nothing would happen. We probably wouldn’t speak to each other.”

– R.E., 30, single

“Under normal circumstances, I would say yes, I would be very happy, but I’d have to go with ‘mad as hell’ right now because we’re not on speaking terms.”

– V.D., 30, still in a relationship

“Maybe I would be okay with the quarantine because it was just sex. But he is also a good guy. We would have things to talk about.”

– K.E., 30, single

“I would be both happy and upset. But then, I’d probably get pregnant, and that would make me mad as hell.”

– A.W., 27, single

“I would not be happy at all! I liked the sex, but I do not like the person enough to want to be in quarantine with him.”

– T.A., 33, single

“I’d be fine with the quarantine, but his wife would be mad as hell!”

– M.M., 45, it’s complicated

“No comment. Wait, does my vibrator count? I know you said ‘person’, but I’ve named it.”

– V.L., 33, single
