article imageCouple end up in court for making too much noise during sex

By Lynn Curwin     Nov 23, 2010 in World
A couple in Germany ended up in court, accused of breaking anti-noise pollution laws after neighours complained their bed had made too much noise while they were having sex.
Police received 10 complaints from neighbours of Stefanie Mueller, 24, and Lucas Zetsch, 25, in July.
When they arrived they heard no noise, but the couple was fined £86 ($135).
When they refused to pay the fine the couple, who live in a suburb of Lichtenberg, ended up in a Berlin court.
The Telegraph reported that, when Mueller said they had not been very loud, the judge replied: “Perhaps not you, but your bed. We have witness statements that it was heard banging and squeaking around the neighbourhood from 11.30pm until 1.00am the next morning.”
After Lucas told the court “It was totally normal sex, nothing exciting,” he got a scornful look from Mueller who snapped “Thanks - that was nice.”
None of the complainants showed up at court so the case was thrown out by the judge.
“I am moving out now anyway,” The German Herald reported that Mueller said later. “Who wants to live next door to killjoys like these?”
Earlier this year, a German couple in their twenties was evicted from their apartment after neighbours complained that they were too loud during sex.
According to The Local, their landlord had claimed the "frequency and tremendous volume of their screaming and moaning can be heard in the entire house."
The man involved has said that he and his partner were louder than other people because they had "long-lasting and good sex ."
