I rent out a room in my own home and have had a couple staying here for the past three nights. Thankfully, they leave today. For the past two days, beginning at noontime, they have engaged in house-rocking sex. Unfortunately, their room is directly above my home office, where I work. My question is whether or not to leave them a review, and if I do, whether I should mention, or allude to the noisy sex. They are somewhat friendly, although we've only spoken a few times in passing. I don't have any stated "noise" rules for my listing, because in the 5 years I've been a host, everyone has been quite considerate. I admit that I feel a little violated, and it irks me that the couple has absolutely no concern for how their wild sex might affect anyone else. I don't have kids at home anymore, or I certainly would have spoken up. Any thoughts on whether to review or not? I'm considering the "might be better suited to a hotel room" line. Thanks.

How on earth could I forget Billy Connolly......the joke where he was going to bury his wife upside down!.......a parking spot for his bicycle?.....great start to my morning , thinking of great British humour!....thanks
Well I have a story that fits the actual headline, but no chance of giving a review as the request for xxx came months later via telephone. Was a most uncomfortable conversation. ''My wife said that...'' was the opening line. Still want a refund, Fred? (tagging doesn't work for some reason)
See if you can get some reruns of The Two Ronnies, If you like Benny you should appreciate TheTwo Ronnies.
Ronnie Barker was also in a comedy series called Porridge about a prisoner called Fletcher , his sarcastic wit.........Just love it.
Our space is not a shared space but an attached Guest House designed for two people. We try and Market it as a romantic getaway and so we get a lot of couples and I would say 7 out of 10 engage in sexual relations. We actually provide a bottle of wine and there are multiple candles throughout the space reinforcing hour intent to make this a quiet and private romantic space. Our bedroom floor is their ceiling so if they are loud we will often hear them. But we just assumed this would happen and usually it's nothing more than a snicker between my wife and I when we hear this. Although we only actually hear them when they are exceptionally loud. I never put this in any of the reviews nor do I ever mention to them that we heard them. If this was a shared space within our home I might feel differently about it though
If guests want to be rude and vulgar enough to make their "private" life public, then it warrants a public review. Be subtle in wording, but smart enough to allow future hosts to understand what you are getting across so they can warn these unpaid hookers that noise levels need to be kept to a minimum!
