A woman in Birmingham, England, is heading to jail for two weeks because she had sex so loud that it annoyed her neighbors.
A woman has been jailed for two weeks for having sex so loudly that it upset her neighbours.
Gemma Wale, from Small Heath, Birmingham, was said to have 'screamed and shouted at a level of noise' which offended another resident during a ten-minute sex session in January this year.
She had been put under an anti-social behaviour order just weeks earlier, but soon breached the terms due to her 'loud sex noises'.
Miss Wale's age was not given in the ruling but it was revealed that she had a boyfriend called Wayne.
The case had been sent to Birmingham County Court after the city council took legal action following the neighbour's complaint.
In a written ruling, Judge Emma Kelly said Miss Wale had breached the order by having sex so loudly.
She added that she had also breached the order by arguing with her boyfriend, swearing at a neighbour, 'banging around the house' and 'running around in the property'.
The order had also prevented her from causing nuisance by playing loud music, shouting, swearing, making banging noises, stamping and slamming doors.
Following the ruling, the judge imposed separate two-week jail terms on Miss Wale for each breach but said all terms would run concurrently.
The judge indicated that Miss Wale lived in a property owned by Birmingham council and said she had heard evidence from a council housing officer and one of Miss Wale's neighbours.
Judge Kelly said a neighbour had complained that at around 5am on January 29 'paragraph 3 of the order' had been breached.
'Gemma started screaming and shouting whilst having sex, which woke us up,' said the neighbour. 'This lasted 10 minutes.'
The judge concluded: 'I am satisfied that during the course of the early hours of 29th January 2015, at around 5am, the defendant was guilty of screaming and shouting whilst having sex at a level of noise which caused nuisance or annoyance to (a neighbour).'
