No sex please, we're skittish

We never know what’s coming next from BJ’s bloviating bunch. Tinder trips and romantic trysts with anyone from another household are now illegal – and it’s sent the internet into meltdown

Presumably, if you’ve been following the rules set out for us since the UK went into lock-down in March, you’ve already refrained from making clandestine visits to other households for some time – it stands to reason, right?

So why has a specific ban on sex between people who don’t live in the same house come into play now (as of 1 June), when lock-down restrictions are being eased?

The cynical among us could see it as a distraction tactic – a master news-burying move, causing social media platforms to flood with memes expressing mirth and outrage in equal measure.
