How do you feel about hearing your neighbors having sex?

Serendipity Serendipity
I live in a multi-unit row house type townhouse complex. I came home from walking my dogs yesterday and entered through a side gate. Someone in the first unit off the gate was having completely loud, raucous sex. We're talking when Harry Met Sally at the very least. One of my dogs paused at their door and turned to look at me like, "should we go in and help?"

I could still hear her yelling four units down. They aren't my next door neighbor so personally I enjoyed that moment at the dinner hour but I wondered how quick the novelty would wear off if that were a frequent occurrence.

For myself personally, this is what I love about public play space; you can be as loud as you want and there I often am. But at home, I use a gag, a pillow, my arm or whatever to keep from screaming loud enough to be heard down the block. Am I a prude?

Once I figured out it wasn't geese flying overhead, I put the broom to the wall. I only want to hear myself have those screaming orgasms, thanks!

I'm never home. That, or my neighbors don't have sex.

I am very sensitive to sounds in my personal space, and that includes (but is not at all limited to) sex. I'm glad my housemates/neighbors are enjoying themselves, but my space is my own little bubble from the outside world and I hate the outside world coming into it.

I have to agree with EffinSara. It would be nice if everyone had mind-blowing sex every day at least once, but truthfully, I don't really care to hear it.

I've never heard my neighbors having sex. However, up until recently both the houses next to ours were empty, and at my mom's house there are businesses on both sides so it's not an issue. I'd probably be okay with it as long as it wasn't constant, disturbing, or while I was trying to sleep.

We live in apartments, so it happens. It's one of those "Oh? They're having sex. giggle." My boyfriend and I honestly don't care, but it's not a turn-on or anything. Plus, we just make fun of them because they spend most nights screaming at each other then they have sex once during the day really loud. We just have to wonder what's going on up there sometimes.

(Plus, we listen in just to make sure it's not domestic abuse too.)

In my college days there were just thin walls or partitions separating me - or them from the action. That was fun for a college experience - but I'm glad I don't hear it now - getting old enough to own a home has it's advantages.

Sounds like I am fairly on target with my feelings then. Good to know!

I totally like to keep my private life private and that means keeping sex/relationship details away from my day job as well as my neighbors. Makes sense to me.

Thanks for your input everyone!

I don't live close enough to hear my neighbors and the one neighbor that does live close enough is single.
When I lived in my apartment a few year back there was this couple that I shared a bedroom wall with. I would hear them read dirty stories and have sex....it was a little awkward to me. I am sure they could hear my boyfriend and me having sex too. lol!

At my boyfriends appartment the people upstairs are always having loud sex. It doesn't really bother us so much when we are here during the day as we can be kind of loud ourselves at times, ok I can be loud at times, but it has bothered us a few times at like 2 in the morning when it's woken us up out of a deep sleep. I don't care how loud you are, but if you're waking up your neighbors thats a little inconsiderate

That's definitely true. I know we always make sure to shut the windows in the summer, just in case.

I'm the same way. When we lived in an apartment sure the first time it was a giggle of "wow." but after that it unnerved me. These were not your normal having a blast screams of passion, but the porn kind of total fakeness. It only made my experience worse.

I never hear the neighbors having sex - but I sure hear their kids screaming and running up and down the stairs! We're the end house, so we only have neighbors on one side.

I did SEE some neighbors having sex about 10 years ago, though! I have a 4 story row home, and we have a roof balcony in the back. I was up there one spring afternoon and looked down to see the neighbors across the alley having sex in their 3rd floor bedroom - windows wide open. It caught me totally by surprise and I kinda scurried into the house!

It's funny, even when Gary and I have the whole house to ourselves, he still wants me to be quiet! Haha - the neighbors should thank him! And tell their kids to knock it the fuck off!

Oh yeah - but I do have a home office, and I work from here a few days a week... and the worst fucking thing in the world is trying to work when someone has roofers or painters on the job in this neighborhood (which, in spring and summer, is continually) - and I am even guilty - I had the house painted in October...it was hellacious! Soooooo loud, all day! Fuck, I'd trade screaming orgasms for trach-box yelling painters ANY day!

I remember the painters!

She had these two young punks up on her roof, scraping trim. Old, ancient, growly guy is painting the lower trim.

The two punks, while I'm... uh... sleeping, have this YELLED conversation.

"Don't you see it? It's metal"

"No, I don't see anything. Scrape it if it's metal!"

"But it's right here, can't you see this hunk of metal? It's all painted over!"

"I don't see shit. I don't know. What? What IS it?"

And on and on, trying to determine if... something... should be painted... for like ten minutes.

Until finally, old, ancient, gravelly voiced dude screams "JUST SHUT UP AND PAINT THE BITCH!"

Second most amusing moment of our Philly trip. Taylor and I laughed so hard we almost fell off the bed.

And didn't get any more... uh... sleep, but it was worth it.

@ Carrie Ann and Victoria, I'd take the neighbor having sex over meaningless yelled conversations anyday, LOL.

Thanks for the funny comments!

I live in an all-girls university residence hall, so despite the thin walls, there usually isn't too much action going on. My one and only next-door neighbor, though, brings guys home on the weekends. I can tell she's trying to stay quiet, but the sound still comes through as though the wall were nonexistent! I don't mind, though. It doesn't keep me up and it inspires yummy dreams.

I just live at home with dad, so nothing goes on here, thank god. I just don't like hearing it, to me it's all a real private matter, and I wouldn't want anyone hearing me either. (Though I'm a quiet one, I don't make any noises, even when I come.)

I don't think it would bother me if I've heard them. I've gotten the broom stick a few times. It would make me feel better about myself if someone else was making the noise.

I live in an apartment and the wall next to bedroom (right next to my bed) is also the wall connecting to the neighbors bedroom. XP
i used to here them doing it at night just as ide lie down to sleep thankfully they would only last a few minutes (i mean like 5 from start to finish, poor girl)
and finally one night i was so annoyed i started bouncing on my bed (which has an old metal frame and squeeks terrably) it also bangs into the wall. and to make them jelouse i bounced and moaned and clawe my bedroom wall for 4 hours straghit stopping for 5 minutes here and their to "pant" hevally. needless to say ive never heard them do anything but argue all nite long now.

I live on 10 acres and so do all of my neighbors. If I hear them having sex then damn, more power to them!!! And I'll have to ask them what in the heck they're doing to have so much fun.

So, I can't pick any of the choices.

When I moved back for the spring semester we got new neighbors above us, and the first night I was back they were having vigorous sex that caused the walls to vibrate, things to fall off my walls, and me to wake up from a deep sleep. It was not enjoyable, and I'm pretty sure the whole apartment building heard them...

We own a house, so since there are no adjoining walls (like in apartment buildings) and the other houses aren't butted up to ours, it would probably take quite a lot for us to hear the neighbors, or vice versa.

We hear their kids out in the backyard screaming their heads off right next to our fence on one side, and the prissy lady on the other side cackling on her porch when she has the "gals" over for wine "tasting" parties and to promote general snobbery. Other than that, we don't get a lot of noise drift.

I think it would be kind of amusing/funny to hear it once in a while, but I'm glad that we don't. It makes us worry less about them hearing us.

I did live in an apartment building once where I would always hear a woman from the building next to mine having sex. The first time I heard it I thought someone was being raped. She sounded like she was truly and utterly in pain. After a while I realized it was just the way that woman had sex. She would have different people over a few times a week, more often in the summer, and scream like someone was cutting her limbs off. The super fake porno screams that sound like nothing but agony. It was a huge turn off, and really irritating when it was waking me up at 3:00am all summer.

Ye-up. I'm in college and don't mind it all that much, but I also really like to be quiet and insulated. I don't fault anybody or feel like they're invading my privacy, I just know that when I go to grad school, I want to have foot-thick cinderblock walls like I did my junior year of undergrad. Ahhhh, serenity.

I do not hear my neighbors or the people living upstairs. However, they might be hearing us. They sleep on the third floor and we're in the basement. When I orgasm sometimes the sheer ecstasy of it causes a screaming type of moan that I can't hold back or control. So I may be the annoying person having great sex bothering people. But I try to be careful and stay quiet. Besides my man hates it noisy so he keeps reminding me to be more quiet.

If we were to hear neighbors I wouldnt care unless it happenned often and the couple were just inconsiderate and doing it on purpose to bother the population. Otherwise scream and moan away.

Oooooh weird thing happenned to me once. While I was with an ex we had sex in his room and his parents room was right above us and while we were going at it we could here them doing it too. Lol, we sort of got weirded out and stopped. The next morning at breakfast his mom and her boyfriend were smiling coyly as she spoke of "the night before" and I was blushing so bad from my discomfort.

Can there be a choice that says: I'm too loud to hear them? I have to be gagged or something like that to not be heard.

I had neighbors who moaned like they were dying in pain and I knocked on their door, with my decible counter, and told them they exceeeded the maximum noise level and security was aware. They were issued a warning. Next time they pulled the same act, I had them fined. There is no need to make any noise when you are having sex.That's just rude.If its above conversation level or can be heard from the outside of the door, its too loud. Same thing with music. People who feel they have to make noise, especially for others to here are exhibitionists and really not that good in bed at all.

"There is no need to make any noise when you are having sex."

Erm, some people just make noise automatically. And I get what you're getting at, but people aren't necessarily being loud just to "show off." I have loud sex because that's what gets me off, not because I want to impress some random person who lives next to me.

OMG this is one of my biggest pet peeves. Idk what it is exactly but I cannot stand hearing it! Last year the people about me in my apartment complex would go at it so loud that it would wake me up. I would bang back but it would only stop them for a bit each time. I eventually got so fucking fed up that I went outside once and TAPED down their door bell. The only choice they had was to go outside and remove the tape to make the annoying BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEP stop!

I never heard a peep after that lol.

I make a lot of noise when I have GOOD sex, so idk why it bothers me so much lol.
