    Essentially, new neighbor moves in with son. Old neighbor likes to have loud leather sex. New neighbor doesn't want son to hear the loud leather sex. Old neighbor probably doesn't want to stop having loud leather sex.

    Condo Owner’s Leather Sex Dilemma
    By Advocate.com Editors

    A new condo owner in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco is in a bind — he sunk all of his money into a place for himself and his 10-year-old son. But when he went to remove the carpeting, his downstairs neighbor informed him that he enjoys “leather sex” and that it would be audible in the upstairs bedrooms without an effective sound barrier.

    "He's entitled to his life," Jack Hagerty told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I just wish he'd told me sooner."

    Hagerty says he had to remove the carpeting to ease his allergies. When he told the downstairs neighbor he’d be doing this, he received the following e-mail in response.

    "I am a sexual enthusiast and enjoy leather sex. At times, it is possible and even likely that the sounds of leather sex will be coming from my bedrooms to your bedrooms without an effective sound barrier. While it is not my issue, you may find you need to explain things to your son as it could be confusing to him since it frequently doesn't sound as pleasurable as it is."

    Hagerty says he doesn’t feel comfortable moving his son in, but he doesn’t have enough money to move again. The neighbor argues that all Hagerty had to do was leave the carpet and pad in place.

    Regardless of how the sound is being produced, it is a nuisance when living spaces have shared walls and floors.

    IMO, as the person creating excess noise, the old neighbor has a responsibility to reduce the sound transmission either through curtailing his activity or investing in sound proofing.

    Hagerty should be glad that the leather sex dude didn't invite him and his son in for an "educational experience." icon_twisted.gif

    Nearly all condo associations have rules prohibiting excessive noise, especially during certain hours (10:00 PM through 10:00 AM, for example).

    They also have rules which stipulate that a specified square feet of area in upper floor condos must be covered by a pad and carpeting, to reduce noise for the people living below.

    All condo buyers are required to agree to these rules as a part of buying their condo.

    The guy who just bought his condo could put in a non alergenic pad and carpeting, to reduce the noise coming from below. Or, he could put his new condo back on the market and buy another condo.

    Definitely makes for some buyer's remorse.

    Probably the best thing for the new buyer (upstairs guy & son) is to replace the old carpet and padding with hypoallergenic material as Webster suggested.

    And perhaps invite Mr. Leather Daddy up for some coffee or tea and make for a civil discussion to curtail the noise from below during hours when Junior is home.

    Life is all about reasonable give and take.

    Or he could ask the condo board to install this.

    The leather sex guy should install better insulation to block the sound coming from his own condo. Unless his point is to let everyone know that he's having sex, and somehow facebook or twitter are insufficient to broadcast his news, it's his responsibility to minimize noise disturbances coming from his condo.

    This is why (well, not precisely why) I hope to never have to live in a condo again. That, and condo boards that act like petty bureaucratic dictators and enforce the rules capriciously.

    Having neighbors is difficult enough without common walls and floors.

    What IS 'leather sex'? It sounds like sex with a couch.
