In the hierarchy of sounds none of us ever want to hear, perhaps even nails on a chalkboard and Justin Bieber warbling out a rendition of an opera aria lose out to the aural terror of hearing one's own mother engaged in an orgasmic fit of passion. Yet, even those dreaded sounds do not quite warrant a 911 call.
According to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, a 15-year-old female resident of Panama City Beach called police after she was awoken by the sounds of her mom getting it on. The teen told police that the two started fighting after she heard the moans coming from the other side of her bedroom wall.
The teen insisted that she had been "disrespected" and asked to be placed in a Christian children's shelter.
The mother, 35, told police that she merely invited her boyfriend over that night, and, well, one thing lead to another, and, well, you know, the sex sounds happened. She didn't intend, however, to wake up her daughter.
Police did let the girl talk to the staff at the Christian shelter, but the girl decided not to go as it was almost time to go to school. No charges were filed but police left a domestic rights pamphlet at the home. Perhaps they might have left a brochure about sound-blocking insulation as well.
