Bow-chick-a-wow-wow. COVID-19 was the aphrodisiac men didn’t even know they needed.

Guys in relationships are singing the pandemic’s praises, claiming the yearlong lockdown enhanced their sex lives, per a new eHarmony study. 

Ladies, on the other hand, don’t feel that knocking boots with their boo during COVID made the sex any better. 

The digital dating site’s “Happiness Index: Love and Relationships in America” survey of 2,000 people found that 50% of men gave the pandemic a great big thumbs-up for improving their horizontal tango time with their partner. 

However, 71% of women reported that bumping and grinding during the global health crisis did nothing to boost their overall sex life satisfaction. 

The eHarmony report also found that 45% of men said they were having sex more frequently compared to 29% of women. 

“Having sex doesn’t mean that your sex life is healthy necessarily, but for men, perhaps their idea of having an improved sex life is improved frequency,” relationship therapist Nedra Glover Tawwab explained to Insider. 

“For women, they may have a different concept of the sexual experience. So certainly more frequent sex for men could be seen as a positive thing for the relationship.” 

The juicy ups and downs of getting one’s freak on while the world was crumbling aside, a whopping 71% of study participants said that were glad to have a romantic partner during the pandemic. A surprising 58% of people reported their relationship grew stronger in the wake of the virus. 

Although the vaccine is becoming more readily available to the masses — allowing more people to safely enjoy non-mattress-related recreational activities with others — the newfound shot-induced freedom shouldn’t come as a threat to couples, according to Tawwab. 

“I think the attachment piece will keep people together and they will learn to navigate this new post-pandemic world together,” she said. “I don’t think there’ll be this massive breakup.” 

“Being able to have someone in the pandemic, being able to thrive in the pandemic, I don’t think that people would just throw that away because they’re vaccinated.”

But, if more and more immunized folks do start dumping their partners like yesterday’s face masks, at least they’re going out with a bang. Right?
