Below is the text of a short article that many of you have likely heard about.

What do you think? Is this anti-social behaviour? Should she go to jail?

What is your opinion? And who decides what "Normal" means???

 

LONDON (AFP) - A woman whose noisy sex sessions were officially branded anti-social behaviour is liable to find herself behind bars if she fails to stop excessively loud lovemaking, a court has ruled.

Caroline Cartwright has been given an eight-week prison term suspended for 12 months -- meaning if she engages in over-noisy coupling again in the next year she will immediately be jailed.

"I've heard a very short extract of the noise you make and can well see that your neighbours would be upset and distressed by this," said judge Beatrice Bolton at Newcastle Crown Court.

Cartwright was served with a civil order over marathon romps with husband Steve, described in court as "unnatural" and "like they are both in considerable pain."

Neighbours at their home in Washington, south of Newcastle, had complained about the noise -- as did passers-by and the neighbourhood letter carrier.

Cartwright was served with an anti-social behaviour order, but admitted at a previous hearing to having violated it almost immediately, and repeatedly, last April.

At an earlier hearing the court was told that the local council set up special equipment in a neighbour's flat and recorded noise levels of 30-40 decibels, peaking at 47 -- as loud as a conversation in the same room.

Cartwright told the court she had tried to restrain herself.

"I did not understand why people asked me to be quiet because to me it is normal," she said, adding: "I have tried to minimise the situation by having sex in the morning - not at night - so the noise was not waking anybody.

"I may be sympathetic to it, but it is not something I am doing on purpose."

Ha ha ha!
Yes!
I had a neighbor in my old apartment building who was a screamer and she always left her bedroom window and curtain open. None of the tenants in my building complained about it, they just enjoyed the free show.
I think I'd compare it too much to my own sex life:(

Decibels are decibels. But duration needs to be taken into account as well. If a similar situation were happening in my building, I'd have to compare it to another loud regular noise, such as an alarm clock or a radio or TV or children's play screaming, and assess the level of disturbance by the exact same rules.

But usually screaming from orgasm is of quite short duration, so I can't really see how they could put her in jail, that seems extreme. If she is truly worse than all other neighbourhood noises, then I'm sure a small fine should do...
all this talk has been about the girl in this so far. My question is:

Does this guy give lessons on " how to make her scream all night"?? I want to learn his tricks!!

And no, I don't think she should be jailed for being more vocal then average. But if she knows she is loud and it bothers her neighbors, she should sound proof her flat a little better. . .just to be nice. . .

Damn, how does he do it????? ;-)
This is awesome!
I'm sure you are Not the one thinking this!
As you state, there's noise, and then there's screaming... I suspect we'd be surprised/impressed if we heard her :)
Exactly! Me too!
well - lots of things make me loud -
Years ago my landlady (who had super loud cocaine parties until 3am)
called the cops on me for this very reason! Nothing happened ...
For me loud IS normal - however since that event I have tried to have a sturdy pillow nearby to muffle the noise a bit.
I'd have to agree that noise level is noise level. If indeed the neighbors can show that there is noise loud enough and long enough to be disturbing, then there are grounds for complaint ... provided people with loud children, TVs, parties, whatever else are being similarly gone-after.

But prison time? Whatever happened to a simple eviction?

This is why I loathe living in apartment buildings or roommates or anywhere else where thin walls makes me censor myself so. I'm not talking just sex: I like the TV loud. I like my music. I have pets that make noise.

That said, I did have a roommate once where she and her boyfriend gave great audio. ;-)

got to love that!! I have lived in a few old houses that had been turned into apartments. There was some "great audio" there too. GOD some of it was hot!!

One funny one I will share. . .

Guy lived upstairs from me in the house. his bedroom was right above mine. He always had someone over. Sometimes the same girl, sometimes different. Loud!! One night, I was a good little christian then, I was saying my prayers and they were going at it just feet above me and It stopped. . . I heard a loud thump like someone hitting the floor. . . and I heard the girl say " HAY, You didn't PAY for THAT!!" Needless to say I was laughing so hard that I think they both heard me. . . and I forgot to finish my prayers. . .
