Would you complain if your neighbors were loud during sex?

Woman Posts REALLY Nasty Note After Neighbor's Loud Bedroom Activities

by Lisa Fogarty

When you live in cramped quarters -- which basically means any apartment building in any city you can think of -- you get used to hearing many sounds made, mostly unknowingly, by your neighbors. You can listen to them argue. You hear them flush their toilets while you apply your make-up in the bathroom. When they have loud parties, which I hope for you only happens around the holidays, you grin and bear it because lord knows your friends are anything but quiet after a few cocktails.

But one woman in Chicago decided enough was enough after having to hear her awesome and sexually satisfied neighbor do the deed a little too loudly. So she did something that has never worked for any person living in any apartment ever and left a nasty note on her door. And it didn't end there. 

In the fed-up woman's note, she basically requested that her neighbor put on a record because she doesn't want to hear her every moan. Then she added the sassy line, "Luckily for me it never lasts very long."

Oooooh, snap. Your turn, Awesome Sexually Satisfied Neighbor.

And Neighbor, who calls herself "The girl in 517" doesn't disappoint. She retaliates by tacking up her own lengthy missive on HER OWN door (and she keeps her neighbor's note up, as well, just to be a badass) in which she responds:

Your obvious frustration from my pleasure saddens + confuses me. I'm not yelling, or anything terribly disrespectful. Apparently, we have the thinnest walls on Earth because -- I assure you -- the moans you're so upset by are masturbation induced. That's why it "doesn't last very long." I know what I'm doing and porn is free, + I have the best vibrator. I got it at Taboo Taboo [sic] down the street. You should really invest in one -- you sound a bit, uh, tense...

And then, for good measure, she adds: 

I am proud of my sexuality, so your attempted SLUT-SHAMING is useless here. Had you approached me n a respectful manner, I would have been happy to oblige.

Good for her! I mean, if the noises were really all that loud and disturbing and her neighbor couldn't take it anymore, I get it. But at the very least, ring her doorbell and confront her like a human being. The only reason this story leaked to begin with was because a third neighbor noticed the letters on the door, snapped a photo, and posted it to Reddit. Clearly, you should know there's a chance you are going to embarrass someone if you post a note like this to their door (though 517 girl doesn't seem like the type who shames easily).

Of all the noises that can be heard in an apartment, sex noises are the least offensive, in my opinion. They're often hilarious and sometimes pretty hot. And I just can't imagine getting so worked up over them.

Would you complain if your neighbors were loud during sex?

When I was doing apartment management, I lived below a tenant that honestly, I did not want on the property anyway.  She was useless trash at best. But what really keyed up my dislike for her, was the amount of noise her and her skanky, Jesse Pinkman looking, strung out boyfriend made when they had sex. The always did it on the floor in her living room, so I could not hear my telivision over the sounds of their disgusting hambeast rutting.  Finally, one night, I had enough. I went up and banged on their door, and loudly told them that everyone could hear them (as we could. Even in the courtyard), there was no way skrunks like them could possibly illicit that much desire from another person anyway, and maybe if they would put as much effort into being decent humans, they would not be such disgusting losers. And I let them know that all of us could hear them, and we were all revolted, and making fun of their braying like donkeys. 

The other tenants that were outside at the time cheered. It is just basic decency. If you can be heard over the noise that a group of children make while playing outside, you are being way too freaking loud.

I would complain. My family doesn't need to hear that. But that's also why we would never live in an apartment. It's just not for us.

 Well that would have to be really really loud sex since they live over 2 miles away.

Oh wow that letter was very rude. But I don't think it's a big deal so I wouldn't complain. Wry one does it at one point in time

I'm the noisy neighbor but I live in a house. Apparently the next door neighbor heard me once. His wife is my BFF and he complained too her calling me trashy. It was 1am in the morning and apparently he was outside in front of my house talking on the phone to some girl he is having an affair with...and I'm the one who is trashy? lmao
