Eviction plea denied for noisy sex neighbours

A Stockholm couple have been told they can stay in their rental apartment after neighbours called for their eviction over the pair’s naughty and noisy night-time games.

Complaints of having to overhear sex games and other disturbances where filed by neighbours of the randy couple to public rental housing company Stockholmshem.

The case was taken to the rent tribunal board (Hyresnämden) in an attempt to evict the couple.

But the complaints were thrown out by the board who stated that the noise could have come from another apartment within the building.

Disturbance orders had previously been issued to the couple’s address on two occasions in connection with a domestic argument and a party.

But the tribunal concluded that the couple could not be throw out of their apartment for reasons other than the two reported incidents, which were not a case for eviction.

Swedes ‘like it hot’: Erotic audiobooks all the rage

The number of Swedes listening to audiobooks has nearly doubled in just two years and a big part of the explosive growth is driven by an insatiable desire for erotic tales and romance novels.

Broadcaster SVT reported on Wednesday that 37 percent of the Swedish population listened to an audiobook last year, a marked increase over the 20 percent who did the same in 2016. 
 
While audiobook streaming services report that all categories of audiobooks have seen increased listenership, certain types of books are clearly leading the way. 
 
“Amongst the listening public, genres such as romance, ‘feel good’ novels and eroticism are growing. We are thus seeing increased demand [from listeners] as well as an increase in the number of publishers who are putting out these types of books,” Anna Riklund, the head of content curation at audiobook streaming service Bookbeat, told SVT. 
 
She said that the growing number of Swedes who want to listen to racy novels has led several publishers to launch imprints that focus exclusively on erotic literature. 
 
Audiobook streaming service Storytel also reported increased interest in erotic and romance novels, particularly among female listeners. Listener numbers peak around Valentine’s Day and during the hot summer months. 
 
Author Susanne Ahlenius, whose erotic novels include titles such as ‘Climax’ and ‘Lust 2.0’, said that the audiobook format is perfect for fans of the genre. 
 
“You don’t have to sit with a paperback that shows what you are reading. No one knows what you’re listening to,” she told SVT. 
 
Ahlenius said that her books are most successful when she “writes very explicitly and there is a lot of sex”. 
 
“People like it hot,” she said.
