under the covers

1. Literally, in one's bed. I'm not going out tonight—I'm already in my pajamas and under the covers!
2. In consort with another, usually secretly (and perhaps scandalously). They may represent different parties, but I think those two politicians are under the covers together. The way he keeps looking at her makes me wonder if they're under the covers together.
