Loud lovemaking irks neighbors

SUNDERLAND, England, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A British couple are appealing their conviction for breaching a noise abatement notice related to their loud lovemaking sessions.

The order had banned Caroline and Steve Cartwright of Sunderland, England, from "shouting, screaming or vocalization at such a level as to be a statutory nuisance," after repeated complaints from neighbors, a mail carrier and parents walking children to school past their building, The Sun reported Monday.

Caroline Cartwright said the order is a violation of Article 8 of the Human Rights Act, which she said gives her the right to "respect for her private and family life." She said a sexual psychologist will testify that she can't stop herself from making the noises during sexual activity.

Pamela Spark an environmental health manager with Sunderland City Council, said she visited the road outside of the Cartwrights' apartment and took notes on what she heard. She described the sounds as "hysterical, almost continuous, just screaming."
