“I miss being able to raw dog oxygen”

"Raw dog” usually means sexual intercourse without a condom. The 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic resulted in requirements to wear face masks, and “raw dog oxygen” (or “raw dogging oxygen") means breathing without wearing a face mask.

“White ppl out here rockin them Michael Jackson surgical masks scared to raw dog that oxygen” was posted on Twitter by FUBU Hilfiger on March 3, 2020. “CDC is wilin if they think I’m about to stop raw dogging this oxygen out here” was posted on Twitter by Quarentina Aguilera on March 4, 2020. “Got self conscious and took my mask off earlier, just raw dogging this oxygen” was posted on Twitter by Milt on March 13, 2020.

“Raw dog oxygen” was posted on Twitter by Xavier Hoods on May 11, 2020. “I miss being able to raw dog oxygen” was posted on Twitter by señor on November 19, 2020, and went viral (over 100,000 likes). ”raw dog oxygen breathing without wearing a mask” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on December 1, 2020.
