NEW research has confirmed that sex with an ex-partner does not count as infidelity, a moral lapse or even sex.
The news has been welcomed by Britons who have always assumed this was a convenient loophole but are glad to have it confirmed, regardless.
Social scientist Dr Helen Archer said: “It’s important not to sleep with new people all the time because that increases the total number of people you’ve shagged and makes you slutty.
“However, sex with an ex doesn’t add to your total, doesn’t have to be disclosed to anyone new you’re dating because it’s technically part of your past, and can be kept secret from friends guilt-free.
“Even if it happens up to three times a week, because both parties will pretend it didn’t happen then in actuality it didn’t.
“So text an ex-partner today to meet for a coffee, some careers guidance or simply to affirm that you can remain friends, like adults.
“It’s the perfect loophole. Life needs more loopholes.”
