A regional NSW MP (with an unfortunately very appropriate last name) has had to clarify that residents can’t have threesomes in lockdown, and it’s absolutely sent me.

Last night, State Member for Wallsend Sonia Hornery made a Facebook post breaking down all the new restrictions for the seven-day statewide lockdown.

But, when asked about whether someone’s partner can visit them if they live with other people, Hornery accidentally wrote “love” instead of “live” with others, seemingly encouraging local Wallsenders to have a lockdown ménage à trois, as a treat.

“Yes, you[r] partner can visit even if you love with others,” she initially wrote.

“You should obviously discuss this with others in your home and isolate from others in the house, wear masks when possible.”

A local resident screenshotted the typo and joked: “I guess the rules are more progressive than I first thought.” Another added: “It will be interesting when the partner turns up and you’re already loving others.”

Sonia Hornery then clarified that unfortunately, nobody in New South Wales can be the meat in a sex sandwich right now, replying in what can only be read in the same way as Edna Mode from The Incredibles says “no capes”: “no threesomes.”

No, I’m not joking. Here’s the proof.

Another local then replied in that same Facebook thread, “no threesomes… until the restrictions are lifted”, which lead the former Councillor for Newcastle City Council to seemingly talk about threesomes post-lockdown.

“Then it’s a free for all,” the literal politician genuinely wrote on their very serious and official political Facebook page.

I can’t believe this is real, folks. We truly live in extremely online and horny times. Hornery added that she has received a generous amount of horny on main questions regarding lockdown this week from local residents. As in, ones that would make people “blush”.

In case you missed it, the remaining parts of New South Wales not facing stay-at-home orders joined the rest of the state in lockdown for a 7-day statewide one from 5pm yesterday. In response to the continuing rising cases in Greater Sydney, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian also announced new rules and increased fines for breaching stay-at-home orders.

NSW Health has reported a number of cases in western NSW, including in Dubbo and Walgett, as well as detection of COVID-19 in the Lennox Heads sewage system. Walgett is an area of particular concern as it’s a small town with an Indigenous Australian population of 43%.


All adult Aussies (yep, even if those of us under 40) are currently able to get the safe and effective AstraZeneca vaccine through a GP. Click here to see which clinics are offering it, and talk to a doctor to see if it’s right for you.

Alternatively, you can triple-check to see if you’re eligible for the Pfizer vaccine here.

The best vaccine is the first one you can get, and that’ll be our ticket out of this mess.
