British woman taken to court AGAIN for noisy sex
48-year-old Brit Catherine Cartwright ignored a court-ordered ban on her noisy sex, and has pleaded guilty to making love with sounds described as “murder,” “unnatural,” and capable of drowning out her neighbors’ televisions.
Cartwright had been banned from her noisy romps after hundreds of complaints. Even her postman and a women who walked her child to school past Cartwright’s house complained.
The Press Association reported that Cartwright claimed to not realize she was being so noisy:
Giving evidence Cartwright said she was unable to control the noise she made during sex. “I did not understand why people asked me to be quiet because to me it is normal. I didn’t understand where they were coming from. I have tried to minimize the situation by having sex in the morning – not at night – so the noise was not waking anybody,” she said.
However, the BBC reported a neighbor’s statements about the lovemaking:
At an earlier hearing, next door neighbour Rachel O’Connor told the court she was frequently late for work because she overslept having been awake most of the night because of the noise.
She said: “The noise sounds like they are both in considerable pain. I cannot describe the noise. I have never ever heard anything like it.”

Etch-A-Sketch: Condom Edition
Do you love art almost as much as you love (safe) sex? Well, if so, there’s a contest for you!
New York City is sponsoring a contest for the best condom wrapper to remind people to be safe about sex. The city health department will debut the winning look in the fall and the wrapper will be the latest in a string of colorful designs the city hands out for free.
The contest is open to people over the age of 17 and entries (of a non-raunchy and non-copyrighted variety) can be submitted until January 22.
And did you know that there is indeed a Facebook page called NYC Condom that you can refer to for all manner of prophylactic information?
Hey whatever it takes, because it’s no joke, what with the spread of HIV/AIDS and STDs not abating anytime soon. What would be an image that would most be most effective in getting people to play it safe? Keep in mind that the city has given out over 40 million free condoms a year to places such as bars, beauty salons, restaurants, gyms and hospitals, according to the release.
