A Brooklyn, New York, couple has just earned a unique distinction that they would rather not have — or at least, they’d prefer that their awkward honor had not become public knowledge. But perhaps they should talk to their neighbors, who filed seven complaints against the pair in slightly over 13 months, according to the New York news site DNAinfo.
So, what is this couple’s interesting distinction that has brought them a flood of unwanted publicity this week?
Well, DNAinfo found that no couple has been the target of more complaints for loud lovemaking than anyone else in the city.
The site’s survey, the results of which can be found on the interactive map viewable at this link, found 133 complaints in total with New York’s 311 municipal information and complaint telephone service, relating to overly noisy sexual acrobatics — but no single location registered more complaints than the apartment in Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge neighborhood.
“I’m not sure what they were doing, but the woman was moaning and screaming, ‘Oh yeah, oh, do it to me,” one person who filed a complaint with the 311 service told DNAinfo. “I’m not a prude but there are kids in the building, and it was just a ridiculously loud amount of noise being made.”
The complaining individual desired to remain anonymous to avoid possible reprisals from the building’s landlord.
After the DNAinfo story came out, the Mail Online web newspaper dispatched its crack investigative team to track down the vociferous couple. That was after New York TV station WPIX had done the same, but found the pair resistant to talking to the media.
But apparently, the Mail softened them up somehow, learning that the gentleman involved is a maintenance man in the building who is 25-years-old and who regularly drops by the apartment of the woman, who is in her late 30s, for their raunchy, high-decibel bouts of passion.
The woman declined to give her name, but told the online news publication that she does not believe she’s doing anything wrong. And that she is expecting a child — though she did not specify whether or not her younger lover is the father.
“I’m four months pregnant. I’m doing what I’m doing in my own apartment. I’m not hurting anyone. My neighbors calling the city are going about it the wrong way.”
As for the male half of the duet, he also did not reveal his name publicly, but expressed bewilderment at the uncomfortable honor of having the most complained-about sex in New York City.
“I don’t understand why. Other people make louder noises,” the man who is half of the loudest lovemaking duo in New York said. “Everyone has their own way. People above and below us are noisy too. I sometimes stamp my feet to get them to quiet down. I wouldn’t mind if the people next door were doing the same!”
