Adult Entertainment Company Offers to Build 'Glory Holes' for Canadian Province

Sunday July 26, 2020

After a Canadian province recommended the use of "glory holes," an adult entertainment company has offered to build some.

This occurred after the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) released guidelines for sex and intimacy during the pandemic, CBC Radio Canada reports, by suggesting the use of 'glory holes.'

"Use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact," the guidelines state.

To promote the use of 'glory holes,' the adult entertainment company YouPorn offered the province of British Columbia "a grant of $100K to support the building of glory holes across the province," reports the BC website Victoria Now.

The offer was made in a letter from YouPorn's vice president Charlie Hughes has sent a letter to Adrian Dix, BC's health minister.
"At YouPorn, we highly value the importance of considerate sexual exploration and release in our daily lives, even more so during COVID-19," the letter begins.

"We applaud the BCCDC's guide for its recommendation of the use of glory holes during intercourse to limit face-to-face contact during sex, in the name of safety."

"The letter continues to say that YouPorn is aligned with the BCCDC and would like to extend an offer of their support in an effort to keep BC's curve flat without forgoing sexual pleasure," writes Victoria Now.

There is no report if Dix has responded to the offer.

While the BCCDC guidelines raised some eyebrows, health professionals are unpeturbed.

"When guidelines come out and there's discussion around glory holes and meeting people online or virtual masturbation or mutual masturbation ... There's always going to be some jest," said Nicole Pasquino, the clinical practice director at Options for Sexual Health, which works closely with the BCCDC. She has worked in sexual health for 15 years, writes CBC Radio Canada.

"This is nothing new to sexual health. We talk about harm reduction and minimizing risk all the time, way before the pandemic ever came," she said. "What it's about is keeping people safe."
