Sure, even when worn properly, face coverings can be uncomfortable, sweaty and lead to foggy glasses, but they do come with one perk (aside from the whole protecting yourself and others from a deadly virus, of course). According to a survey conducted by sexual wellness brand Royal, 88% of women in the U.S. find men who wear a face mask during the coronavirus pandemic sexier than those who don’t.

In fact, even women currently in a relationship with someone who doesn’t wear a mask favored mask wearers over non-mask wearers.

“Largely because of societal conditioning, some men view masks as a sign of weakness,” said Neil Mehta, M.P.H., CEO and founder of Royal, in a press release. “When you see how the majority of women perceive men in masks, however, it should be a game-changer for lots of guys, especially those who want to stay sexy in the eyes of their partner.”

So, women are in favor of masks in the grocery store, but what about in the bedroom? After all, masking up during sex is recommended by health professionals.

According to the 500-person survey, 6% of women said they have had sex with a face mask on during the COVID-19 pandemic, and 25% said they are open to the idea.

“Health and hygiene are supremely important to women as it pertains to their romantic relationships,” Mehta said. “Just one year ago, no one was thinking about having sex with masks on, and now, a shocking one in four women are either neutral about it or likely to do it.”
