Eyebrows are raised over bizarre sex ban

‘Will the cops be setting up stings on TINDER now?’: Eyebrows are raised as government makes sex in your home with a person from another household ILLEGAL (but it’s okay in the garden)

  • Bizarre new rules mean two people from separate homes cannot hook up
  • Two people from different homes are banned from gathering indoors in private
  • Social media users are mocking the bizarre rule that bars Britons from sex
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

Britons are questioning the Government’s bizarre rules about lovemaking – as sex in your home with someone from another household is banned, but technically it’s okay in the garden.

New coronavirus regulation says no person may participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons.

Now only those with ‘reasonable excuses’ are allowed to gather privately – and sex is not one of those reasons listed. 

Social media users are now mocking the bizarre technicality that bars Britons from hooking up with people from other homes.

‘Illegal sex sounds so hot’: One Simpsons fan posted an animated image of Homer drooling

One Twitter user implied every previously law-abiding single man would turn into a revolutionary akin to Che Guevara after reading that ‘sex is now illegal’

One said: ‘Will the cops be setting stings up on Tinder now that it’s illegal to have sex unless you’re living together?’

Another posted a GIF of a drooling Homer Simpson, saying: ‘Illegal sex sounds so hot.’

A third implied every previously law-abiding single man would turn into a revolutionary akin to Che Guevara after reading that ‘sex is now illegal’.  

One Twitter user said his wife was going to ‘ban sex with people she lives with, in solidarity’. 

Another asked: ‘How do I sign up to become one of the SEX POLICE for this sexy time ban then?’

One said: ‘Not really happy about this so-called ”sex-ban”. I’m sure it’s only so the NHS aren’t inundated in 9 months’ time!’  

Reasonable excuses for gatherings include elite athletes, people attending funerals, vulnerable people, workers and separated parents seeing their children – not those looking for sex. 

Police will be keeping an eye on garden parties as the lockdown eases and will ask people to leave if they are breaching Boris Johnson’s rules – but they cannot force them out of the property, it was revealed today.

Officers will be on the look out for groups of more than six people socialising together and will respond if two people from separate households are meeting for sex inside a property. 

Britons are allowed to meet their friends for socially distant fun and games from today as the Government eases some of the lockdown restrictions in force since March.

Groups of up to six people from different households are allowed to meet socially or to play certain sports under a partial relaxing of previous rules which only allowed two people to meet.

But as before, all the people involved must stay two metres away from each other if they do not live together, with other strict measures designed to limit risk during sports or at gatherings including barbecues.

And in one of the most controversial aspects of the new rules, Boris Johnson has introduced a ban on two people from different households meeting for sex.

A document from the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and College of Policing said today: ‘Rather than requiring a reasonable excuse to leave the place where a person is living, there are specific things that members of the public cannot do.

‘A person may now leave and remain outside of the place where they live for any reason, subject to restrictions on gatherings and overnight stays.’

The guidance issued to officers on powers they have to police overnight stays said: ‘You may only direct a person to return home.

‘There are no powers in the Regulations to remove someone or use force. Fixed-penalty notices (FPNs) and arrest still apply, where appropriate.’

In public places ‘direction, removal and/or use of force can still be used’, the guidance said, adding: ‘If you are lawfully in a private place you can only direct a prohibited gathering to disperse, or any person in the gathering to return home. FPNs and arrest still apply, where appropriate.’

Previously police chiefs told officers they have no powers to enforce the Government guidance on two-metre social distancing.

NPCC chairman Martin Hewitt said: ‘Personal responsibility is key as we all enjoy these new freedoms.

‘Police officers will still have a role if people are breaching regulations in place in England and Wales. We will continue to use common sense and discretion.

‘Officers will engage, explain, encourage and, only as a last resort, enforce.’
