How Loud is "Too" Loud

How loud is "too" loud in the bedroom when engaging in intimacy?

If you live in the United Kingdom (not Marlin Perkin's Animal Kingdom, which is altogether a different animal, so to speak), being too loud could land you in jail. Yes, while it is hard to believe that being too noisy while being intimate with your husband means going to jail, surely there are worse crimes being committed in the UK?

Caroline Cartwright, a 48 year old woman in the UK was previously charged with an Anti-Social Behaviour Order due to the amount of noise she made while having what was described as "marathon romps" with her husband Steve Cartwright. The order prevented her from "making excessive noise" while engaged in intimacy anywhere in the UK.

But Caroline, who obviously couldn't get enough of Steve, breached the order three times. Having been reported by neighbors numerous times, (including one neighbor who is partially deaf), Caroline was arrested by the police, and has been remanded for as long as 2 weeks while awaiting trial.

Yes, Caroline has requested a trial by jury of her peers. This is going to get very interesting. You see the last time that she appeared in the courts, her neighbors produced 23 separate recordings of Caroline and Steve "doing it". They had placed recording devices on the walls. So maybe the neighbors are just audio-erotic.

One neighbor, who is obviously celibate, stated in court, "I heard sounds....they were really loud, and there was a lot of moaning and groaning and screaming as if in pain. It wasn't just the her, it came from both of them."

I'd suggest a simple solution. Be happy that Caroline and Steve have such a wonderful relationship. No one complains when Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones or Mary Black sings about finding love. No one seems to be complaining about the hip hoppers blasting their vulgarity from their cars with the windows rolled down.

I think what's happening is that the neighbors are jealous that they are not in a such a wonderful relationship like Caroline and Steve. Just like the people that complain about Bill Gates having all that money, there will always be complainers. I'd say give this couple an award for being happy and vocal about it.
