My downstairs neighbor has a penchant for extremely loud and profane self-pleasuring at night. How do I broach the subject without embarrassing her? I love sex, and I think that everyone has a right to creatively explore it, but when it interrupts my beauty sleep more often than not, it’s a problem. Any advice is appreciated.
I have a couple of ideas. For fun, try recording her one night and play it back at her the next night. Maybe try the old tried-and-true banging on the floor with a broom handle. You could also use her enthusiasm to heat up your own bedroom as a soundtrack for you and your partner—like an audio three-way. No? If the goal is not to embarrass her, I would simply call her up and tell her that her TV is too loud at night and ask if she would mind lowering the volume. She’ll get the picture.
