TheWindowIsOpen Wed 17-Jul-19 08:51:59

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?

Happened to me once my neighbour said to me the next day did you have a nice birthday? I said yes it was lovely thank you she said yes I know I heard you do Jiggy Jiggy blush Embarrassing ffs

You can hear people here, I've heard my neighbours, it's just something you have to accept with communal living and thin walls, a fact of life, there's not much you can do about it.

I'm pretty sure I've unfortunately done a similar thing, I had a really loud partner and wish I'd said to keep it down a bit, felt fairly embarrassed myself.

They may not know it was from you, or they may think it was the TV.

I can hear peoples conversations too, even when I'm inside and they're inside also. It's the way the buildings are at an angle to each other.

Don’t do that someone could write it all down and use it for identity theft.
No boning I ever had is worth all the hassle of police reports and waiting for new credit cards

@SkydivingKittyCat I proper laughed out loud at the idea of screaming the man's name and address.

Might memorise my husband's passport and NI numbers.grin

If you’re in Leeds OP then I defo heard you 😜

Justaboy Wed 17-Jul-19 15:04:04

We used to live in a terraced house, paper thin walls and the couple next door, well she used to just giggle all the time they were at it which did go on for quite some time, bouts of the giggles, so much so that one night my then wife lost her rag banged on the wall and shouted in no uncertian terms;

"For fucks sake can't you just give her one and get it done with"!

Oddely enough it went quiet for some time afterwards then we moved out!

Unless you were screaming DP's name or your address it could have been coming from any house, surely?

ElliT Wed 17-Jul-19 13:25:17

I heard this happen on my street a few summers ago , I had no clue which house it was coming from so you may get away with it

ohtheholidays Wed 17-Jul-19 13:19:20

Honestly if I heard one of my neighbours enjoying themselves and they're partner I'd just think fucking good for them in this heat!

I think if me and my DH had attempted that last night it would of been like a bloody slip and slide with all of the perspiration grin

ImpossibleGirl Wed 17-Jul-19 12:58:49

Made me think of this from Avenue Q:

Badtasteflump Wed 17-Jul-19 12:41:21

Chill out, it's just a bonk.

Nobody can prove it was coming from your house - and nobody will ever ask anyway!

Monsterdogs Wed 17-Jul-19 12:19:23

Hi OP. When i was a teenager my then bf dad came to speak to us in the morning and asked us not very tactfully to keep the noise down at night 😳
I survived the embarrassment of having to face the rest of the family at breakfast

ItsBloodyFreezingg Wed 17-Jul-19 12:18:09

or did you want to hear all about my sex life OP? hmm

Jesus the fun suckers are out in force this morning. It's quite clearly a light-hearted thread asking for other funny stories (of which there have been plenty on MN before).

notjustanexpat Wed 17-Jul-19 12:14:26

Pretty sure our neighbours hear us with or without the windows open. We hear them occasionally. We cannot hear much when we are in our flat but the close....different story.

I am just glad everyone in the building gets laid, it makes for more relaxed neighbours.

Jeremybearimybaby Wed 17-Jul-19 12:13:51

Forgot my purse once in Tesco 🤷🏼‍♀️or did you want to hear all about my sex life OP? hmm

Enclume Wed 17-Jul-19 11:52:31

@CollaterlyS1sters that sounds like a proper hara kiri moment. I can only hope that, following your gender reassignment surgery and relocation to Dagestan, you had the good sense not to ever, ever allude to Derrida again?

@Flyinggeese thank you for your support. I find your moaning stories exciting and have printed them out to read later.

@DC3dilemma 😂 sex. It's a Bing thing

DC3dilemma Wed 17-Jul-19 11:48:33


Sex. It’s part of living. Don’t even sweat it, OP.

I don’t know why, but I hear that in Flop’s voice:

Sex. It’s part of living. No big thing, Bing.

CollaterlyS1sters Wed 17-Jul-19 11:32:09

Oh god you're right. They are going to LOVE @Enclume 's cringeworthy Iliad story.

dustyparadeground Wed 17-Jul-19 11:29:52

Fuck off Daily Mail

4cats2kids Wed 17-Jul-19 11:28:31

I used to live in a flat. One afternoon, on a hot summers day, I had a noisy three hour lesbian sex session with my girlfriend. When we had finished, we both smelt a strong odour of smoke. We then realised the window was open and the old man downstairs was smoking in his garden below.

The sex must have been so good even the neighbours needed a fag afterwards. This amuses me. I have no shame.

katseyes7 Wed 17-Jul-19 11:11:05

My friend calls her neighbour Meg Ryan. As in the fake orgasm scene on When Harry Met Sally. She says it's so loud and 'put on' it can't possibly be real.

katseyes7 Wed 17-Jul-19 11:09:38

l've heard my neighbour and her boyfriend having sex. He's noisier than her. Fortunately it doesn't last long.
