"Bachelor in Paradise" producers have imposed new drinking rules for the show... including asking permission for SEX.
Sources say that there is now a limit of 2 drinks per hour.
The crew is monitoring drinking levels among the cast and the bartenders are also responsible for keeping tabs.
Producers have also made a point of providing food at all times during the shoots, to help absorb the alcohol.
Sources say the cast started talking about the Corinne/DeMario alleged sexual misconduct situation, both on and off camera, and drinking was a big talking point.
Contestants who want to have sex must get permission from producers.
Sources at the Mexican resort where the show is being filmed tell TMZ there are new rules in place regarding sex, especially in "The Boom Boom Room" -- where most indoor sex goes down.
Before anyone can get it on, both parties must go to a producer and state that they consent.
If the producer feels either party is incapable of giving consent, the producer can pull the plug.
And if contestants violate the rule and go right into "The Boom Boom Room," producers can barge in and stop them from... doing the deed.
