There’s a sort of sex ban in the UK and people have come up with these 11 very funny reactions
Under the relaxed rules governing the coronavirus in the UK, people are allowed to meet up with those from another household, as long as social distancing is maintained, leading to a £50 fine for anyone caught doing otherwise.
It doesn’t take much imagination to realise that this means that sex is illegal between people from different households.
That’s right, folks – the Tories have banned sex. Kind of.
Barrister Adam Wagner confirmed people’s suspicions.
Afraid to say this is correct.
I can't believe I'm about to tweet this.
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. https://t.co/aEiGIoweee pic.twitter.com/b0KZBACSQ4

Twitter wasn’t going to let that lie.
I’ll confess, I did not have Boris Johnson down as the Prime Minister most likely to explicitly criminalise sex between consenting adults. https://t.co/cHCncvnfFU

Who would have thought the Tories would manage to make sex more exciting? https://t.co/BNw9fyjDZi

But you can have sex in the park with your auntie as long as she does not bring your uncle. https://t.co/0U2W923ORG

What if you think it’s not working? Can you go for a 39-minute test-drive? #SexBan

The government deciding to NOW issue a sex ban 10 weeks into lockdown is the equivalent of handing out condoms at a baby shower #sexban

When we said no more cummings this isn’t what we meant #sexban

So there is a £50 fine for having sex during lock-down if its a sexual partner who doesn't live in your house. #sexban
This is bullshit. I've already paid for the sex. It's going to be expensive if i get charged double!

Author James Felton considered the potential for a new kind of chat-up line.
Hey baby, want to come back to my place and violate section 3(b) paragraph 4 bullet point 2 of the lockdown regulations act?

It’s probably best not to imagine that being said by any of the cabinet.
