People are risking a lot to have sex during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a new survey by, the UK’s largest dating website for married people looking to start affairs, one in five people are breaking quarantine to have sex.

But despite the warnings against it, most didn’t feel guilty, Metro reported.

It is a sample of a very particular group, but of the 2,000 people surveyed, 400 said they were violating social distancing orders to get it on during the pandemic.

A small majority of those who broke the rules (52%) said they did not feel guilty about it, and 64% said they would do it again.

Half of those who broke the rules said they did it with a partner they had already been seeing before lockdown.

Of those who reported having sex with a partner they don’t live with, 61% of them said they had to sneak off to secret locations to have sex with them at a partner’s house, in a car, and even on a park bench.

While many people are alarmed by those sneaking around to have sex and date during the pandemic, public officials have given mixed messages about what proper social distancing hook-up protocol is.

The New York City Department of Health made headlines when they released guidelines on safe sex that said masturbation is the safest sex option during the pandemic.

But not all public officials are adhering to the guidelines. Neil Ferguson, a top epidemiologist in the UK, resigned after it emerged he’d had his married girlfriend over twice during the course of the lockdown.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease and a key advisor in the White House coronavirus task force, told Vanity Fair hooking up with an asymptomatic Tinder date was fine as long as you were willing to take the risk.

Most recently, Dutch health officials reportedly shifted their social distancing guidelines to include how to have a safe “sex buddy” for the pandemic.

As government officials and experts race to figure out the safest ways for the public to have sex during lockdown, people are continuing to find their own ways to find intimacy in a new world.
