British Man Banned from Girlfriend's Home Due to Noisy Sex
Friday, August 15, 2008

LONDON — A British man has been banned from visiting his girlfriend's home after neighbors complained about noisy sex, a local official said Thursday.

A court barred Adam Hinton, 32, from being within 110 yards of his 29-year-old girlfriend Kerry Norris' apartment, Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman Mike Taggart said.

Residents of Norris's publicly owned home had been complaining since 2006 about thumping music, banging headboards and screamed obscenities, Taggart said.

Neighbors also complained about Norris sunbathing naked in her yard, and were upset that a 6-year-old child in the building had been "subjected to the sort of obscenities you wouldn't want a 6-year-old to hear," the spokesman said.

"She is a classic nightmare neighbor," Taggart said, insisting the case was not about sex. "It's about allowing your neighbors to have a normal decent life without being disturbed."

The court granted the city council's request for an injunction banning Hinton from the apartment because Norris had ignored a previous court order demanding that she be more quiet, Taggart said.

Norris last week was forced to pay $560 in fines and court costs for breaking the "noise abatement order," Taggart said.

Neither Norris or Hinton could be immediately located for comment. Brighton and Hove is located in southern England.

Seems like this guy could, conceivably, have a perfect relationship. I mean, now when his lady friend calls, he can just say "Sorry, babe! I can't come over tonight. Those noise violations really add up," and head down to the pub for drinks and rowdiness with his mates.

On the other hand, these folks seem like total trash, so it's hard to pick a side. I mean, yeah, it's wrong for the city to dictate what you can and can't to such an extent as this, but then again... this isn't exactly what I'd call a healthy family environment in which to raise a six-year old.

What do you think?

  1. Wow. I wouldn't want to live around that, but it would be funny to hear it just once!

    If I had a neighbor like this, I'd complain, too, but then I loves me my peace and quiet. People have every right to do what they want to do in the privacy of their own (or rented) homes, but when it disturbs others to such an extent, it's gone too far. It's all about respect--for your surroundings and for those around you.

    As for the 6-year-old...that's just sad. He'd best start making his counseling appointments now.
