A woman has shared an angry note from a neighbour demanding she stop 'screaming like a pig' during sex.
The woman said she received the note through her door after a night of rumpy pumpy - which clearly she enjoyed more than the house next door.
In a tweet, she shared a photo of the hand-written letter, which reads: "Can you please stop screaming like a pig daft o'clock when you sh*gging!!
"We all sick of it!!! Neigbours [sic]."
Captioning the tweet - which received more than 21,000 likes - the woman wrote: "I personally thought I sounded like the herbal essence woman but go off I guess."
She went on to say the note made her feel 'uncomfortable'.
She said: "As much as am joking about it honestly am very aware now. And feel hella uncomfortable."
She added: "If they had worded it better I'd have felt a right c***, but this Narr I'll be louder [sic]."
Another Twitter user reassured her the neighbour was just jealous, to which she replied: "[They] think I haven't heard [their] 4 minutes at 9pm on a Friday cause I have and no one's jealous there."
You may very well think the neighbour was in the right here though, as a survey conducted last summer revealed that two thirds of Brits wish their neighbours could be fined for bonking too loudly.
A thousand people were polled by energy comparison site SaveOnEnergy and two out of three respondents said they wished their neighbours could be fined for an overly raucous romp.
Of course, you can make a noise complaint against your neighbours, whether said noise is nooky-based or otherwise. I suppose it's the notion of a specific deafening sex penalty which two thirds of us are in favour of - with the third who are opposed presumably the ones responsible for the X-rated racket.
Whether this issue is more or less pervasive at the moment is a moot point. On the one hand, we're all spending a lot more time at home, so you might expect us to be disturbed by next door's mating more regularly.
But on the other hand, many people's sex lives have drifted off into the abyss due to lockdown measures - and that doesn't just apply to couples that live separately.
When quarantine rules were first introduced, one of the only conceivable benefits was the potential for an improved sex life for couples cooped up together. But according to a poll of more than 10,000 people, 69 percent of couples are having less sex than usual (yes, 69 percent).
