Indoors, I should add. The government is happy for you to have sex with up to 5 other people in your garden
(In law, at least. The Guidance, although not the law, requires you all to be two metres apart at the time)
To those asking “was this not illegal before?”, the answer is complicated. Reg 7 (prohibition on gatherings) didn’t apply to gatherings inside a private address. Reg 6 prohibited leaving your house, but *without reasonable excuse*. Excitingly, this meant that... 1/2
... there was scope for somebody to make a legal argument that leaving the house to have sex with a partner was a reasonable excuse. (Optimistic, perhaps, but if the govt approved the “eye test defence”, who knows?)

Now, the new Reg 7 explicitly prohibits private gatherings. 2/2
(A gathering amounting, in a private place, to two or more people from different households).
