Sex is now illegal in the UK between people who don't live together
If you thought not being able to have dinner with your thirty closest friends was bad, spare a thought for singletons in the UK.
New coronavirus restrictions have come into force, and while the country is now allowed to have outdoor meet-ups of up to six, indoor meetings of more than one household are still limited to such.
And yes, this absolutely includes visitors for sexual encounters.

Just in case it wasn't clear enough, human rights barrister Adam Wagner took to Twitter, posting:
"From tomorrow sex between two (or more) people in a private place who do not live in the same household is a 'gathering' between 2 or more people and is therefore illegal."
He also wrote that he is 'afraid to say this is correct' and 'I can't believe I'm about to tweet this', to which we say: same, Adam, same.
Of all the events 2020 has thrown at us, the government enforcing restrictions on civilians sex lives has to be up there with the most unexpected.
Although, given the context of a contagious and life-threatening illness, we suppose it is justified.
It's not certain yet how the powers at be plan on monitoring this love lockdown, but fines have been given out previously for those failing to comply with guidelines.
If anything, these restrictions on our UK mates have us feeling pretty grateful for the current situation in Australia. And if staying home has taught us anything, it's that life can be pretty spicy between the sheets (whether solo or not).
So... take advantage of it while you can.
