Sorry folks in England, you can not have sex with people from outside your households now!
England just passed new legislation that disallows the company of two members from different households under the same roof. The law says “gathering” but media is calling it “sex ban”, which might be true because having another person from outside might lead to sexual activities too.
Due to the coronavirus, the judiciary introduced a bill called the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations 2020 bill and this is being implemented since June 1st. The document reads that “when two or more people are present together in the same place in order to engage in any form of social interaction with each other or to undertake any other activity with each other.”
So, if you're single or if your partner does not live in the same house as you, you will be affected by the bill regardless.
The UK is slowly easing all the restrictions placed in March due to the pandemic and now people are stepping out of their houses more freely for groceries, business, exercise, etc. Even though the law doesn't mention the word sex, do you think it falls under social gatherings? Well, yes. If you go to someone else’s house for sex, that means you are violating the rule of having a person from another household over.
The law also makes it illegal for a person to stay somewhere overnight unless it is for business or funerals. So, you cannot visit friends, family, or your partners as indoor restrictions have been intensified.
There are some restrictions related to the law too. So in the following circumstances, you would be allowed to have gatherings. If they are:
A DHSC spokesperson issued a statement saying, “Individuals who participate in a prohibited gathering will be in breach of the regulations, and the police will use their common sense and discretion in all cases.” The spokesperson added that DHSC had “set out” its plan “to return to life to as near normal as we can, for as many people as we can, as quickly and fairly as possible in order to safeguard livelihoods, but in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS.”
