But I have the ability to selectively tune things out. Yeah, I try not to think about where the water is coming from. The sheets and toilet area in my hotel room? I try not to put too much thought into it. Well, tonight is a new one for me.
What Can I Realistically Do About My Neighbor Who Has Really Loud Sex? - CityLab
I once had a boyfriend who lived in one of those creaky old apartment buildings with noisy steam pipes and radiators that clang. Due to some mystery of its construction, noises carried vertically. In the kitchen, we heard neighbors three floors up cooking their dinner. In the bedroom, we heard sex. Everyone heard the sex. Sometimes we heard multiple sex acts, occurring simultaneously but, we believed, in different apartments. It was a symphony of sex noises, a grunting glee club of unseen strangers humping in beds directly above or below ours.
What is it about overhearing loud sex that drives us crazy?
I can hear my neighbors having sex several times a week. Sometimes it even wakes me up at night. Is the universe against me?
Today I came across a disturbing story of a couple having loud sex in a McDonalds restroom — like laid out on the stall floor moaning and groaning for all the pottiers to hear. I say that because ever since I was a little girl I always just so happen to be near people having sex. Or near enough to hear moans of ecstasy. First you hear it, you stop in your tracks, mute other surrounding noises to make sure you heard what you thought you heard. In fact, this trend in my life started when I was in middle school.
