The daily Bild reported on Monday that the couple’s neighbours had lodged repeated noise complaints for exceptionally loud sex noises that kept them up at night.

“The frequency and tremendous volume of their screaming and moaning can be heard in the entire house and it's become a no longer acceptable nuisance,” the landlord explained in the couple’s eviction notice.

The 25-year-old man Michael Krug, his similarly aged partner Nicole Kühn and their two small children must now leave the apartment by mid-April, the paper reported.

"Of course we're louder than other people," Kühn told Bild. "We have long-lasting and good sex - enjoying ourselves basically."

Story continues below…

Fortunately the randy couple has apparently already found a new place to live with much thicker walls than their current flat.

German couple's having sex? No way. It must have been a porno with the volume turned up high...

Look out for the tax man comith. Loud sex in Germany, what a sin. With such a low German children birthrate, this couple must be the American. Hahahaha

I checked your link. The photo of the people in the article is almost enough to turn me celibate.

A perk of a childless relationship. ...not the getting evicted part of course.

These days we gotta nearly mime having sex *sigh*


You must not have read the part where it says they have 2 small children.

The photo is from a Woody Allen movie (that's him). I think it's, "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, But Were Afraid to Ask". (1972).

Sounds like Munich is getting it on but the rest of the country is abstinent. Must be the beer. Javoil

"Kühn and their two small children must now leave the apartment." Wow, this is no joke. Kühn's MySpace page ("DarkAngel") currently bears the message, "Suche dringend nette hilfsbereite Menschen, die uns am Samstag beim Umzug helfen könnten!"

This, in my opinion, has less to do with `sex` and everything to do with `Noise`. No apartment dweller has the right to extend his living space beyond the four walls for which he is paying rent, sonically or otherwise. Hence if this noise making has been a repeated offense they must be evicted in my opinion. Living in an apartment building carries with it certian responsibilities, including not disturbing you neighbors.
