Tough noogies for anyone wanting a little nookie in the UK these days. Metro reports that, as of June 1, new coronavirus guidelines there make it illegal to have sex with someone who doesn't already live with you. According to a new amendment to a Parliamentary bill, "No person may participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons." The outlet adds that "until today, the person who goes inside another person’s home would have been the one breaching the rules. However, now both people could be prosecuted." The amendment makes exceptions for "reasonable excuses" that include childcare arrangements, attending funerals and providing emergency in-home assistance--but not, apparently, booty calls.
