UK Issues Sex Rules For Citizens Under New Lockdown Legislation
United Kingdom has banned sex with anyone living outside ones household under the new Covid-19 lockdown legislation.
The UK government rolled this out on Monday June 1, in order to curtail socialising indoor with anyone not already in their household.
The regulation reads that, No person should participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons.
Also according to the new rules, only those with ‘reasonable excuses’ will be allowed to meet privately indoors, which does not include meeting up to have sex.
Reasonable excuses under the regulation include jogging or exercising for elite athletes, movement of vulnerable people and key or essential workers.
Other people that can give reasonable excuses include people that meet in a private space for childcare, separated parents who live in different households seeing their children, people providing emergency assistance and those attending a funeral.
In order for the citizens to comp, police forces in the UK have been told to disperse any large groups and use fines and arrests ‘where appropriate’ as a last resort – but they can only ‘direct’ someone to go home and have ‘no powers’ to remove someone by force, the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and College of Policing have said in a joint paper.
Their advice to officers also makes clear that the new coronavirus guidelines /laws ‘provide no power of entry.’ Downing Street has also been clear that police do not have the power to enter gardens to check party numbers.
