Til The Cops Come Knocking: Residents Of NY Apartment Building Made 133 Complaints About Loud Sex In Six Weeks
When living in an apartment building, it’s not unlikely that you’ll overhear a couple engaging in wild sex occasionally. But if you’re a resident of 7201 Ridge Blvd. in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, your ears may be flooded with the sounds of some lucky guy or girl crying out in ecstasy a bit more frequently.
According to DNAinfo, residents of the six-story apartment building made 133 calls to New York City’s 311 line between January and February of 2015 to complain out disturbingly loud sex. Between October and December, residents made 311 complaints for the very same reason. And apparently, most of those boisterous encounters occurred during the wee hours of the morning.
“Neighbors are having very loud sex with the windows open that can be heard throughout the whole bldg.,” one person said in complaint filed at 4:40 a.m. on Nov. 14.
“I’m not sure what they were doing, but the woman was moaning and screaming, ‘Oh yeah, oh, do it to me,” another resident complained. “I’m not a prude but there are kids in the building, and it was just a ridiculously loud amount of noise being made that the first time another woman yelled out her window, ‘Shut your f–ing windows you whore!’”
Though neighbors say that duo somewhat quieted down during the winter months, their boisterous trysts started right back up once the weather got warmer a few weeks ago. According to the New York Daily News, cops who responded to the complaints never arrived in time enough to witness the loud disturbances. Residents of the 59-unit building singled out one particular couple as the troublemakers.
“They go in all places in the apartment: the bedroom, the living room,” said Siddahart Shah, 29, who lives one floor below the lovers. “You can hear it. A lot of moaning, the woman mostly.”
Shah, however, says that he has learned to deal with the couple’s sexscapades.
“They are having a good time,” said the college student. “It’s normal. I just ignore it now.”
Half of the loud pair is a 25-year-old male who said that he was surprised to hear about all of the complaints.
“I don’t think it’s true,” he said. “Other people make louder noises. Everyone has their own way. I sometimes stomp my feet to make them quiet down.”
The couple has been together for two years.
I’m not sure why this story tickled me so much, but I think that it’s hilarious. Have you ever received complaints (or had to complain) about rambunctious sexual encounters?
