It shows people can stay at home for so many reasons but have a hard time adhering to home lockdown rules when it comes to the issue of controlling sexual libido.

In the new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters, a dating website, it was found that one in five of those asked have broken lockdown to have sex.

According to, the biggest group of people that broke the restrictions (48%) are couples who were in a relationship prior to lockdown but don’t live together while 22% are people who were cheating on their partners pre-lockdown and have carried on the affair.

According to the survey, 8% of people who are breaking the lockdown are people who have started a new affair during the crisis and have met up with a new partner for sex as they can’t control their libido.

Over half of those breaching the rules (61%) have sneaked to their partner’s house for sex – or other places including cars, parks and beaches while 32% have gone to their partner’s house late at night specifically for sex.

People under the age of 30 broke the lockdown rules with 38% admitting they had breached the rules by having sex while 48% of people questioned said they felt guilty about breaking the restrictions.

Surprisingly another two-thirds (64%) said they would carry on breaking the rules and having sex as long as a full lockdown lasts.

IllicitEncounters sex and relationship expert Jessica Leoni said: ‘It is no surprise that one in five people [from the survey] have broken the lockdown for sex.

‘It is very easy to succumb to lust, particularly late at night when you have been communicating with a partner you were seeing pre-lockdown.
