Casual Sex Is Now Illegal Again For Those Living In Tiers Two And Three
Boris Johnson's new three tier system to combat the spread of coronavirus means that it is now illegal to have casual sex with someone outside your household.
According to the new rules - which were implemented this week - those who live in tier two or three areas are prohibited from mixing household indoors, including staying overnight at someone else's home by law.
However, those in an 'established relationship' are still allowed to overnight at each other's homes.
It follows updated government guidelines last month that said 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 relationships" while couples in the "early stages of a relationship" should still take care to stay two metres apart (i.e no sex).
"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."
If you are caught to be mixing with someone from a different household indoors - who you are not in an 'established relationship' with or who is not in your support bubble - you could be fined.
Singles, confused? Us too.
