It’s been nearly a year since Covid-19 was first identified by scientists and the world has been pretty bleak since. We’ve seen economies and societies around the world shut down multiple times and people have been isolating in their homes as they watched holidays and cancelled events roll on by.

However, if Yale professor and social epidemiologist Dr. Nicholas Christakis‘ future predictions are anything to go by, we might be in for a “roaring 20’s” post-pandemic sexual awakening, which is of great comfort to those who were thinking a global depression was on the horizon. Dr. Christakis, author of ‘Apollo’s Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live’, says that society will eventually emerge and make up for lost time by replacing conservative socialising with hedonism, sexual licentiousness, vice and indulgence. Heck yeah. Count me in!

One of the arguments in Christakis’ book is that although the current pandemic may seem alien and unnatural to us, it isn’t new to our species. Christakis’ observations of disease is that pandemics always end. Then, once pandemics end, there is always a period wherever people seek out extensive social interaction, much like the “roaring 20s” which happened just after the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. Here’s what Christakis told the Guardian:

During epidemics you get increases in religiosity, people become more abstentious, they save money, they get risk averse and we’re seeing all of that now, just as we have for hundreds of years during epidemics. In 2024, all of those pandemic trends will be reversed. People will relentlessly seek out social interactions. That could include sexual licentiousness, liberal spending, and a reverse of religiosity.

Well I’m liking the sound of this way more than another Great Depression like other people have predicted. Let’s all just get into swinging, sex parties, BDSM and outrageous sexual debauchery. Bring it on!


  1. Babestation should do a roaring twenties themed babeshow night with the babes doing the Charleston and looking like daisy in the Great Gatsby. My fave would be Lori Buckby
