A Stockholm couple have been fined by a district court for disorderly conduct after they were reported for having simulated sex on their patio, reports local newspaper Mitt-i-Södermalm.

The couple were fined 800 kronor ($112) by Stockholm District Court after a neighbourly feud left the faux-amorous couple feeling the long arms of the law.

In court testimony the couple admitted that they had engaged in simulated sex on the patio of their apartment on Södermalm in central Stockholm last August in an attempt to deliberately provoke a neighbouring family.

The pair told the court that their open-air sexual workout was a form of revenge on their neighbours who they claimed regularly hosted loud and rowdy parties.

The court ruling now establishes that sex, make believe or otherwise, is not legal on one's balcony or patio, and that it can lead to consequences when conducted in full view of the neighbours.
