Having sex in your own house with someone from outside of your household is set to become illegal today in the United Kingdom.

The British government is introducing new lockdown measures in England that prevent people from socializing (or gathering) with one person from outside of their household in a private space, including private property.

Mirror report: Up until now the person visiting a house for sex would have been the one in breach of the measures. But now both people would technically be able to be prosecuted under the law, with Amendment Regulations being introduced in Parliament on Monday.

For those couples looking for a workaround, having sex in a public place is already illegal.

The new legislation explicitly bans being inside the house in a gathering of more than one person without a reasonable excuse.

People who may be deemed to have a reasonable excuse are sports professionals, people attending funerals, vulnerable persons fleeing a risk of violence, carers and those with unavoidable work commitments.

For those attending a funeral of a loved one, rules encompass staying overnight to attend a funeral as a member of the deceased person’s household or a close family member of the deceased person.

Meanwhile athletes are able to stay in a different location to their own residence if they are training for a competition – and this applies to an elite athlete, a coach and parent.

Others who are exceptions to the new rule are those moving house and people who need to obtain medical assistance.

The UK has seen a shocking rise in domestic violence crimes during the lockdown and the new measures take this onboard permitting anyone who must escape a risk of harm to sleep at someone’s house.

Police have seen an increase in reports of domestic abuse while calls to a 24-hour helpline for victims are also significantly up.

Writing on Twitter, Adam Wagner, a human rights barrister at Doughty Street, said that the police will no longer have powers to challenge the public carrying out activities outside of the home.

He wrote: “To be clear – from tomorrow – the police can no longer get involved with why you are outside of the place you are living.

“No more power to direct people back home. No more power to fine for leaving / being outside of home without reasonable excuse.”

The Government has faced criticism after ‘ignoring‘ vulnerable persons like the elderly in lockdown changes.

People who have been shielding for weeks to protect themselves from coronavirus will hopefully get more tailored advice in the future, a Cabinet minister and senior medic have said.

The Government has pledged to review guidelines on the clinically extremely vulnerable as part of each review of social distancing measures for the wider population.

More than two million in England are said to be isolating alone with many feeling forgotten.

  1. As usual, if laws are ridiculous, they are unenforceable and illegal. Live your lives in peace and ignore things like this.

    • Legally the power of Crown Law comes from the Church as Gods representative Its not legal if those agents are in fact frauds None of it .

      • And guess who knows that more than anyone .So a lawless land where anything goes for those in the know.

  2. Sanity is fast fleeting away, powerful lunatics are flexing their political muscles as never before. As nations have moved away of being God fearing – here we are today, rushing to end all semblance of power removed from world voters; we only count for the vote – nothing more!

    • And that’s a show they put in A stage show with actors they allow to play the parts they designate powers of .

  3. The elites are really trying to start violence in the public. I guess they plan to have a good excuse to kill a bunch of people.
