A FRISKY couple were spotted having sex on Sydney’s Bondi Beach in front of shocked onlookers, despite the ongoing coronavirus lockdown.
Photographer Scott Robinson spotted the pair from the sea as they engaged in their risky X-rated session on the famous beachside clifftop – just meters below passers-by.
Taking an early morning swim, the shocked onlooker couldn’t believe his eyes when he noticed the raunchy activity at 8:15 am.
He soon grabbed a few pics, before posting them online to the Bondi Local Loop group on Facebook.
Speaking to news.com.au, he said: “Just thought it was a little levity given the times and the new restrictions.
“I took the pic from the water while doing an ocean swim this morning from Bondi to Tamarama. It was probably around 8.15am so they were keen.
“See lots of wildlife in the water around there but never up on the cliffs!”
The post was later removed from Facebook but not before amused locals quipped at whether the activity could be considered exercise or social recreation under new lockdown rules.
“Yes, it’s cardio and also improves your mental health,” said one.
“Eastern suburbia is something else,’”said another.
“Holyyyyyyyy crap. Those people above had no idea what they were missing out on,” added one.
And another joked: ‘When she says, “Let’s go for a coastal walk.”
Currently, under the Government’s policy, rule-breakers caught ignoring the latest regulations could be hit with a £265 ($500) fine.
The fines form part of Australia’s efforts to implement one of the world’s toughest lockdowns amid a rise in covid cases and a sluggish vaccination program.
Currently, more than half of the country’s 25million people have been ordered to stay at home over the outbreak which began in Sydney.
It has become so extreme that Police were captured enforcing roadblocks and deploying the army and helicopters to help enforce its “Zero Covid” strategy.
It comes in response to the severe backlash that saw tens of thousands of maskless protestors take to the streets last month to oppose the government’s latest round lockdown restrictions.
Frenzied crowds could be heard shouting “freedom” and anti-vaccine conspiracy slogans as police reported that 60 arrests were made.
At the time, the state’s chief health officer Brett Sutton hit out, saying the demonstrations would not free Australians from Covid, and warned the pandemic was far from over.
The Government also confirmed that borders will remain shut until the percentage of the population to receive both jabs jumps from the current measly number of 17 per cent to 80 per cent.
However, the Pacific nation has received praise for it’s response after reporting just over 39,000 cases and fewer than 1,000 deaths.
