Couples Who Don't Live Together Are Now Allowed To Have Sex Under New Covid Rules

Couples Who Don't Live Together Are Now Allowed To Have Sex Under New Covid Rules

Couples who do not live together are now allowed to have sex - as long as they're in an 'established relationship'.

New government Covid-19 guidelines, updated on Tuesday, say that couples who live apart are allowed to go round one another's house and do not have to socially distance from one another once inside.

However, the government does assert this only applies to those in "established relationship" while couples in the "early stages of a relationship" should still take care to stay two metres apart (i.e no sex).

While there's no checklist for what qualifies an established relationship (has to have been on more than three dates? Has met their friends? Will go to the loo in front of them?), it does rule out casual hookups, meaning getting your Hinge date over is technically a breach of the rules.

"People in an established relationship do not need to socially distance," reads the guidelines.

"If in the early stages of a relationship, you should take particular care to follow the guidance on social distancing.

"If you intend to have close contact with someone, you should discuss how you can help to prevent risks of transmission as a couple, for example, by ensuring you are both avoiding close contact with people you do not live with."

Casual Sex Could Remain Banned Until June Under Lockdown Roadmap

We wonder if this new rule with lead to some cases of relationship acceleration?

Prior to this update, it was technically a breach of the rules to go over a partner's house for sex.

This is because, even though no more than groups of six are allowed to meet up inside and outdoors, you are supposed to stay two metres apart from those not within your household.

The new rules do not apply to areas currently in local lockdowns including Manchester, Leicester, Birmingham and Bolton.

Sufficiently confused? Excellent, same.
