What's Your Next-Door Neighbor Story?

Neighborly Sounds

I came back to my apartment late one night, and I heard moaning in the hall. Being naive, I thought someone was hurt , so I walked down to the end of the hall, but no one was there. I walked back to my door, opened it, and the moans were louder! My next door neighbors were getting it on in their living room, and it was like I had a front row seat to all of the various sound effects. The woman's voice was moaning, punctuated by the man's groaning. The constant back and forth voices finally ended by the man's primordial grunt. All was quiet after that. I could only imagine what transpired in that room. Later on that month, their moans and groans woke me out of a dead sleep. Apparently, I was not the only one bothered by their nocturnal noises. The woman who lived directly above them heard their sounds, and used her broom handle to knock on her floor to interrupt their twosome. They kept going at it for hours, and it was speculated that they were on some kind of drug which extended their lovemaking, or the guy was some kind of super stud. It all ended when they moved away because she was pregnant(no surprise there!), and they wanted to buy a house. I hope their new house had some kind of sound insulation, or else their neighbors would be up all night listening to X-rated sounds without the benefit of a video.
