Screamer Banned From Noisy Sex

November 10, 2009

A woman whose lovemaking sessions sounded like someone was “being murdered” has been banned from having loud sex by a British court.

Neighbors (and even the local postman) had long complained about the noise coming from the bedroom of Caroline and Steve Cartwright. Their marathon sex sessions were described in a British court as "howling,” “unnatural,” “hysterical” and “like they are both in considerable pain.” The noise was so bad that the couple ended up in court.

After hearing a 10-minute audio recording of the couple in the throes of passion, the court decided to ban the couple from “shouting, screaming, or vocalization at such a level as to be a statutory nuisance." Caroline pleaded with the court, saying she is unable to control herself during sex. She told the court, “I tried to control it. I even tried to use a pillow (over her own face) to try and lessen the noise." The couple tried to have the ruling over turned on the grounds that it violated human rights laws, however that was also thrown out.

What is the world coming to? Who, after all, wants to live in a world without loud sex?

What do you think? Should the couple be banned?
