Is Python SSL API thread-safe?

Is the Python SSL API thread-safe with respect to recv() and send()?

IOW, can I have one thread doing blocking recv() calls on an SSL
connection object while "simultaneously" a second thread is calling
send() on that same connection object?

I assumed that was allowed, but I can't find anything in the
documentation that actually says it is.
