Sex is allowed between couples in "established" relationships living in different households – but casual romps are still banned.
This means couples that do not live together are allowed to meet up and have sex in England again.
In June the government banned household mixing, which also made it illegal for those who are in relationships yet living separately to have sex due to social distancing measures.
But the latest government guidelines, which were published last week, reversed that decision, reports Metro.
Under current guidelines, people living in separate households must socially distance if they meet.
Those in "established" relationships are exempt from this, although the word "established" has not been clarified.
With fears of the second wave of coronavirus rising, the British government has announced a new set of rules to prevent the spread of the deadly bug.
Local lockdowns in North East of England, North West, Midlands and some parts of Wales have been warned not to mix households.
In Manchester, couples living apart cannot have sex in their own homes but can in a hotel.
This comes as Boris Johnson has warned the Government may "go further" and impose more lockdown restrictions if new rules aren't followed.
The Prime Minister addressed the nation in a live television appearance from Downing Street yesterday evening after announcing a raft of more intense coronavirus rules across the UK.

They include a 10pm curfew on bars, greater fines on rule-breakers and encouraging people to work from home. There will also be a greater police presence to enforce the new rules, and the Government may turn to the military for back-up, Mr Johnson said.
"I am deeply, spiritually reluctant to make any of these impositions, or infringe anyone's freedom, but unless we take action the risk is that we will have to go for tougher measures later, when the deaths have already mounted and we have a huge caseload of infection such as we had in the spring.
"But if people don't follow the rules we have set out, then we must reserve the right to go further. We must take action now because a stitch in time saves nine."
