    1-MONTH FREE ACCESS from APRIL 27! This is the second part of a two-part special issue on child genital cutting. This second part puts the spotlight on genital modifications affecting those born, not with intersex traits, but with “endosex” traits. And yet, as the articles in this collection make clear, even apparent biological normativity do entail cultural acceptability.

COVID-19 and Sexuality

Since late 2019, a novel virus named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has emerged as a new public health crisis. Although scientists have primarily focused on keeping patients alive by preventing the deadly symptoms of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), studies have shown that the virus can also impair quality of life by deteriorating sexual and reproductive systems. In this collection, we aim to provide insights related to the novel coronavirus's neglected effects on human sexuality. We hope that scientists will focus more on "COVID-19 and Sexuality" in the future and identify optimal management strategies for individuals who suffer from sexual side effects of coronavirus.
