British woman arrested over noisy sex
A 47-year-old British woman says her arrest for being too noisy while having sex with her husband won't muffle her loud, vocal lovemaking.
Caroline Cartwright said despite being arrested and receiving an anti-social behavior order for her vocal lovemaking, she does not see such disciplinary actions curbing her vocal outbursts during sex, The Daily Mail reported Thursday.
I can't stop making noise during sex, it's unnatural to not make any noises, and I don't think that I'm particularly loud, she said.
Cartwright's comments came after she received her disciplinary order last Friday. Two days later, a Sunday, the order was violated.
That session of noisy mating brought complaints from 25 neighbors and her arrest.
One of those neighbors, Rachel O'Connor, told Sunderland Magistrates Court that Cartwright and her husband Steve were both vocal lovers, the Mail said.
I heard sounds of a sexual nature. They were really loud, and there was a lot of moaning and groaning and screaming as if in pain, O'Connor said of the incident that prompted her complaint.
It wasn't just the woman, it came from both parties.
