So last night DH and I were... Y'know.

We got pretty far into it when I realised the bedroom window was wide open.

I am horrified. We live on a quiet street so no traffic noise to drown it out and I can often hear neighbours conversations etc... if their windows are open.

I wasn't screaming like a pornstar or anything but I was definitely enjoying myself blush and there were some unmistakable 'moans' blush

In the heat everyone has been leaving their windows open and I can't believe I forgot. I'm usually a shy person but enjoy a chat with my neighbours when I see them so I now feel utterly embarrassed.

I don't even know what my AIBU is. Hoping someone might have an even more embarrassing story to share perhaps?

Is it really that hot in the UK? I moved abroad 3 years ago and my forecasts say 22-23 C?!

If you are not in a detached house surely they can hear you anyway if you groan so much.

Nothing to be embarrassed about really.

I have my windows wide open every night and due to the fact my OH is irresistible....I also have sex every night and most mornings. If the neighbours want to listen that’s up to them. I have to listen to their shitty country music all the time, so fair’s fair!

It’s embarrassing to mention this here. Good grief, what is the world coming to?

LLOE7 Wed 17-Jul-19 09:30:10

No big deal. Act like it never happened and check the window next to me!

LLOE7 Wed 17-Jul-19 09:30:34

Next time * I am definitely not next to your window

PegLegAntoine Wed 17-Jul-19 09:31:17

The next time you talk to your neighbour mention the severe episode of gastrointestinal discomfort you suffered recently. This will account for the moaning. To add credence to your story, pretend to need the lavatory urgently and rush back inside. If you want to seal the deal, actually soil yourself.


I would be far more embarrassed at someone hearing me in the throes of a stomach bug than in the throes of passion grin

AppleKatie Wed 17-Jul-19 09:32:17

How close are your neighbours? I’m sure they couldn’t hear you. It’s a window not a microphone. [confused{

Once staying in a big hotel, staggered back and had wild - loud sex for hours.
Woke up the next morning to see my scarf from the chilly night before had snagged on the door and our room door had been left open all night...
Skipped breakfast...

Wow, it's particularly catty here this morning!

B3ck89 Wed 17-Jul-19 09:34:46

Wow there’s some paranoid mumsnetters on here today hmm

If it makes you feel any better I forgot to put my nipple away before answering the door to the postman blush

B3ck89 Wed 17-Jul-19 09:35:35

Should have said I was breastfeeding 😂

MonstranceClock Wed 17-Jul-19 09:36:14

I've done this quite a few times. It happens!

I once had wild sex with the milkman at the crack of dawn in the back garden under the table on the patio. It was only afterwards that I realised the neighbour's washing was hanging out, where it hadn't been before. She must have been out very early to hang it out before work. I was mortified as we all knew our milkman well when he came to collect monies on a Saturday, so perhaps she had recognised him.

(Only joking)

I’ll bet you were hmm

Pretty hostile here today! I'd be embarrassed at this too.

MikeUniformMike Wed 17-Jul-19 09:52:16

FWIW, I wasn't troll hunting. Nice of whoever it was to report me.
Waves at a tabloid journalist reading this thread who might be thinking of using it as free article material.

The thread seems to be a lighthearted one and the OP has every right to how she feels.

And for you humourless reporter, I am not really shocked at a married couple having sex in their bedroom at night, just giggling at OP's embarrassment.

OP they'll be listening every night now, Practice your best porn star screams from now on.

SomewhereInbetween1 Wed 17-Jul-19 09:54:43

Really depends on how often your neighbours have had to hear it for? Our old neighbours used to wake us up regularly at unholy hours of the night with sex noises that can only be described as actual yelling, not even sex moans but genuine shouting. It was like being forced to be a voyeur and we ended up moving because if it. As a one off I wouldn't worry too much, but remember to check your windows next time haha.

S1naidSucks Wed 17-Jul-19 09:55:30

kind of killed the mood though when I jumped up shouting 'THE WINDOW IS OPEN'!

If I was your neighbour and heard that last bit, I would have been roaring with laughter! 🤣 You’ll know that they’ve heard, if they start asking each other questions about windows, in front of you.

On the plus side, you’ve probably made at least one single, male neighbour very happy. 🍆 🤢

Hi there,
We're just popping on to say thanks to the people who reported their concerns and did not troll hunt on the thread. Of course you know that we can never vouch for people 100% but this OP has been with us a fair while now so we are inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt.

One of my ndn who has now moved was always having sex with windows open etc one day when sitting in the garden with my then 3 year old, I could hear he was having sex in the kitchen, the woman was very vocal, ds kept stopping and looking their direction, then would continue playing, then stop and look etc eventually when they were finished, ds says out REALLY loud" I think mark got a pet cow, I can hear it" I do think they heard as the door was closed quickly and he moved soon after lol

Bowerbird5 Wed 17-Jul-19 10:01:10

I would be embarrassed as our house has no front garden straight onto footpath!

Love the story about the postman made me LOL 😂 loved the addition that you are a breast feeding mum 😆 LOL x2 and the milkman story😭
I would just avoid them for a couple of weeks OP!
