WASHINGTON, England, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- A British woman who was given suspended jail sentences for violating a court order to stop having loud sex with her husband says she will not comply.
Caroline Cartwright, who was given suspended jail terms of eight weeks and 12 weeks for violating the four-year anti-social behavior order, told a film crew for Channel 5's ASBO and Proud she will not comply with the court's demand that she spare her neighbors from the banging and screaming resulting from her trysts with Steve, her husband of 38 years.
"As far as I'm concerned, that's what you should be doing," Cartwright said of her loud marital encounters. "Just relax. Go with the flow. It's not as if I'm having sex and think 'Oh, I'm making too much noise. I better be quiet.'"
Cartwright was served with the ASBO after she was found to have breached a noise abatement order five times.
The couple said they tried to appease neighbors by moving their late-night activities to the morning, but complaints have continued.
"I don't see why I should stop having sex in my own house with my husband of 38 years," Cartwright said. "I'm sure there could be a lot worse things I could be doing."
