A British woman whose noisy sex sessions were officially branded anti-social behavior was warned Friday she would face jail if she fails to stop the excessively loud lovemaking. Caroline Cartwright, 48, was given an 8-week prison term suspended for 12 months, meaning if she engages in overly noisy coupling again in the next year she will immediately be put behind bars.The news above can be interpreted in different ways. On one hand, is nobody's business what the lady does in the confines of her home. On the other hand, it definitely could be an issue of decibels... still, the sentence does look a bit too harsh.
One detail disclosed by the article, though, doesn't leave a shadow of a doubt:
At an earlier hearing the court was told that the local council set up special equipment in a neighbor's flat and recorded noise levels of 30-40 decibels, peaking at 47, as loud as a conversation in the same room.Yes, Ms Cartwright - you are surrounded by nosy perverts indeed and have to move to a more relaxed environment.
Or pad your bedroom. Whatever.
