If we could rank each year by “horniness,” 2020 and 2021 so far would surely come out bottom. What could be less horny than a raging pandemic in which you are legally obliged to stay more than 2 metres away from everyone? And people are coughing and spluttering and can’t taste anything? For so long that it’s become the norm? It’s not even been horny in a “repressed and yearning lesbian in the Victorian times” way. Even those who can have sex haven’t necessarily wanted it.
