    This Woman Is So Noisy During Sex She's Got In Serious Trouble With The Law

    Caroline Cartwright has been handed an ASBO and two suspended jail sentences thanks to her noisy sessions.

    This is Caroline Cartwright, 53, leaving Sunderland Magistrates' Court.

    Her sessions with her husband of more than 30 years, Steve, have been so noisy that police have had to visit their home MORE THAN 30 TIMES.

    This is a long running saga: in 2009 she was handed an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) banning her from "shouting, screaming or vocalising during sex." A noise abatement order had previously been put in place, but she breached that, then she breached the ASBO, and received a suspended jail term, which meant she had to live in a bail hostel.

    According to MailOnline:

    A year later, and after scores more complaints and visits from the police, Mrs Cartwright was again arrested for breaching her ASBO following two police call outs in two days. Again, she was handed a suspended sentence, this time for 12 weeks, and sent to live in a bail hostel where she was held alongside serious criminals, including murderers.

    She told South West News Service:

    As far as I'm concerned, that's what you should be doing. Just relax. Go with the flow. It's not as if I'm having sex and think, "I'm making too much noise. I better be quiet."

    The problems apparently began when she and Steve moved into a quiet terrace and bought a bed with an iron headboard, which banged against the wall before breaking.

    In a bid to get around the restrictions, they started having sex in the morning, but residents complained that they were drowning out the sound of their televisions. Cartwright said: "I don't see why I should stop having sex in my own house with my husband of 38 years."

    She added:

    I would have been judgmental about people who went to prison before I got locked up. But then you go in there and you hear the stories of why they're there, it makes you realise that it could be anyone who ends up there.

    She's now featured on a Channel 5 documentary entitled Asbo and Proud.

    Caroline and Steve Cartwright have been married for 38 years. An earlier version of this post misstated the length of time.
