With the coronavirus pandemic keeping fans out of football stadiums, lewd couples have found a new use for Vicarage Road stadium.

Watford FC’s home ground has reportedly become a must visit site for doggers.

The Sun reported the Championship club’s ground had become popular with the online dogging community.

On a dogging forum called Dogging Action, one user wrote: “Watford Football Club dogging (not when a game is on lol).”

It is believed doggers have been using the car park on Occupation Road. The car park, situated behind garages, is used by the club on matchdays.

One user left a rave review, writing: “Busy on Sunday night after about 9.30pm”

Another wrote: “At the bottom past the ticket office, you may well be surprised.”

A third added: “We like being watched but it feels strange doing it next to a football ground.

"I guess we help put the horn into the Hornets.”

Dogging, sexual activity in public or watching others engage in sexual activity in public, is not banned under a specific law in the UK, but people who get caught can be charged under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 with public lewdness and indecent exposure.

It became popular in 2003 when couples were able to arrange meetings conveniently on the internet.
