    Most New Yorkers hear neighbors having sex

    "Yes, yes, yes . . . " No!

    More than two-thirds of city residents say they regularly hear their neighbors having sex, but few are brave enough to complain about it, according to a survey released yesterday.

    Getting subjected to all that ecstasy is agony, said roughly half of the 400 New Yorkers polled by BrickUnderground.com, a news and information site for homeowners. But even though they bemoan the moans, bumps and grinds, just 14 percent of apartment dwellers said they ever confronted their neighbors or the building management.

    "What this shows is if you live in New York City, you don't need to worry about keeping quiet in bed on Valentine's Day, because the chances are slim that someone is going to complain," said Teri Karush Rogers, BrickUnderground's founder.

    "On the other hand, the morning-after elevator ride could be awkward."

    All sex is public in many of the city's paper-thin-walled buildings, and residents say when their neighbors are in the throes of passion, there's no way to tune it out.

    "It's like a train wreck -- you have to stop what you're doing and listen, even if it's awful," Melissa Buck, 29, of the Upper East Side, told The Post.

    "A friend and I were cooking dinner at 6:30, while it was still light out, and we heard the neighbors. Why can you always hear the girl? It lasted probably 10 minutes, and we had to stop cooking and listen."

    Like many of those surveyed, Leslie Vandike, 30, of East New York, Brooklyn, said the best way to get neighbors to lower the volume is to egg them on.

    "Last summer, I was having a barbecue. Everybody was outside. Suddenly, we hear this loud screaming," he said. "Upstairs, our neighbor was having sex. Everybody was like, 'You go, girl,' cheering them on.

    "We never heard anything else after that."

    According to the survey, the most common sounds heard through the walls were thumping (60 percent), moaning (56 percent), screaming (28 percent) and "other" (23 percent).

    But just 12 percent of New Yorkers said neighbors ever complained about their lovemaking, and only 24 percent said they went out of their way to pipe down.

    That's actually a big issue in Japan. It's why "love hotels" are so popular.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    There is nothing more cringe-worthy than hearing another couple go at it. If our first exposure to the joys of sex was primarily in audio, I guess most of us would still be virgins.

    Some people are just jealous. :p
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    When we first arrived here at Scott AFB, they had us in temporary facilities. Paper thin walls. I listened to our neighbors go at it for nearly an hour one night.

    Trust me, listening to you people would put the rest of us off sex for months. All that squealing and banging around is about as erotic as listening to a meat packing plant but without the beefy goodness. :p

    The one and only time i had a problem with hearing people having sex it was my parents - and I was a teen. I woke up to a strange thumping sound and when I figured out what it was I banged on the wall and told them to cut it out because I was trying to sleep.
