FRIDAY FUNNIES: Landlord evicts tenant due to squeaky sex swing

29 August 2014 Staff Reporter

A landlady was within her rights to evict a man for persistently using a squeaky swing in his apartment late at night as a sex prop, a German court has ruled.

 And you thought your neighbours were bad.

It turns out that the only thing worse than having upstairs neighbours who tap dance or have a newborn is living in the same apartment as a man with a very squeaky sex swing.

A German court recently ruled that a Berlin landlady had the right to evict a tenant who broke his rental agreement of keeping quiet between 10pm and 7am by using his “very old”, loud, chain sex swing, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

Neighbours had reportedly filed numerous complaints since the swing’s 2012 installation.

The court said that by using the swing late at night, it “would no longer correspond to normal rental use, and must therefore not be tolerated as socially acceptable”, the AP said.
