Here Come the Sex Police

And they're carrying decibel meters. What the hell? Leave it to the Brits:

At the end of April, Caroline Cartwright, a 48-year-old housewife from Wearside in the north east of England, was remanded in custody for having 'excessively noisy sex.' The cops took her in after neighbors complained of hearing her 'shouting and groaning' and her "bed banging against the wall of her home.' Cartwright has, quite reasonably, defended her inalienable right to be a howler: 'I can't stop making noise during sex. It's unnatural to not make any noises and I don't think that I am particularly loud.'
OK, that's not the whole story, which is actually worse. Cartwright was actually arrested for violating an "Anti-Social Behaviour Order," a civil order obtained by a fussy neighbor because of Cartwright's prior sexual escapades. The order prevents her from making "excessive noise during sex" in the whole of the UK! A violation is a crime.

For fuck's sake - literally - everyone has had to deal with their neighbors noisily gettin' it on at some point in their lives. You know what? You roll over, stuff a pillow in your ear, and get on with your life. You don't call the fucking police! Sex isn't really supposed to be polite (unless that's your kink). If there's one place you should be able to let yourself go and let go of your troubles, it's in bed. Otherwise, what's the point?
