Man Jailed for 6 Months Over Loud Sex
A warning: Loud sex is also apparently stalking, at least in Italy.   (?)

There's a noisy romp between the sheets and then there's sex so loud it's considered "stalking" your neighbors. That was the charge an Italian man apparently faced in court, after a dozen of his neighbors filed a civil suit complaining of his loud lovemaking sessions. They took issue with "screams and moans" that "disturbed the peace in the condominium and the building’s decorum," the Local reports. Some translations of the local report on the case, like this one from the New York Daily News, indicate it was actually his girlfriend's screams that those in the building found so offensive.

The 42-year-old reportedly tried to convince the judge that "stalking" and "noise" weren't the same thing, and apparently claimed that he can't help that he's "too good at sex." But for all his (noisy?) protestations, he ended up with a six-month jail sentence, which he plans to appeal. Believe it or not, this isn't the first time noisy sex has resulted in a conviction. (Nor is it the only unusual sex-related case to be heard in Italian courts recently.)
