No help for neighbours of noisy masturbator

The screaming orgasms that came when the man pleasured himself really rubbed his neighbours the wrong way, prompting them to file a complaint against the man last August.

"He moans louder than an animal... I can feel how it affects my state of mind," one neighbour wrote in the complaint.

In their filing with the Malmö environmental administration (Miljöförvaltningen), the neighbours not only brought up the man's disturbing masturbatory noises, but also took issue with his habit of watching television at exceeding high volumes.

But demands that something be done to rectify the matter fell on deaf ears.

Nor were officials with the Skåne County Administrative Board (Länsstyrelsen) willing to help the angry group of neighbours deal with the annoying onanist, who, according to the complaint masturbates day and night.

While man's noises may be disruptive, the board argued, they don't rise to the level of posing a danger to the health of nearby residents.

"This sort of thing needs to be solved among the residents," Nicolas Strömbäck of the Skåne County Administrative's legal division told the local Sydsvenskan newspaper.

"It has to be very disruptive for us as a public authority to get involved and decide how someone should behave in their own home."

The fact that three years of complaints by the neighbours to their landlord has failed to yield any measures to mute the man's high-decibel masturbation adulation didn't make a difference to county officials.

According to Strömbäck, mere verbal accounts of the noisy neighbour's self-pleasuring aren't sufficient to arouse the agency into action.

"We need evidence," he said.

According to Susanna Skogsberg, an attorney with the Swedish Tenants' Association (Hyresgästföreningen) explained that complaints about noises made by neighbours having sex are quite common in Sweden.

"I usually tell people that they should talk to their neighbours themselves. But that may not have worked in this particular case," she told the Skånska Dagbladet newspaper.

This really is pathetic TheLocal.

Call this news?

It is scraping the bottom of the journalistic barrel in an attempt to be amusing.

If your journalists have a poor command of English idiom, they shouldn't attempt puns that fall totally flat and fail to amuse.

Stonebridge, your humourless nature suggests to me you may be the noisy neighbour in the article...

You w*nker...

Whenever a neighbor is in trouble, you should pitch in and lend a hand.

The authority should clearly check whether this man masturbate himself or the horse.

We have a noise ordinance that after 10pm until 8am you have to be quiet otherwise you can call the police and complain. And if there are enough calls to the police they can issue a ticket/fine to the person (s). I wonder what they mean when they say they needed proof? I guess someone get the tape recorder out and tape the guy!!! Then put it on Facebook or YouTube and see what happens!!

The neighbors should chip in and buy him a little stuga out in the garden where he can get some peace and quiet. or maybe buy him a lolly pop to stick in his gob or maybe he just needs hearing aids YEP I vote for hearing aids!

what is your most sensitive organ when masturbating??

your ears! ROFL

perhaps we just need to move his mother in next door, that will sort him/her out quick smart!

Thanks TL what a excellent story ... made my day!
