We live alone and very rarely have overnight guests, so we just don’t do it on those nights.

Back when we each lived with roommates separately we were just quiet & quick-ish 😉

Jennybee224:  we just try and be quiet…something that i’ve never been very good at.

FH’s old roommate told him one day that she could hear us (but we’d heard her and her BF before too…) so we just tried to keep it down.

Now, we usually try and avoid doing it when we have guests or are visiting someone…but if we do, we just do our best to be quiet.

Jennybee224:  Huh?  You never “[have] to do it!!”  Sounds like a rape scenario so I’m hoping we’re just talking about you really wanting it!

Once upon a time I had roomates that were not shy about doing it with me in ear-distance so I returned the favor.

In other cases we try to be quiet but the occassional bed squeak may make it obvious.

Try to be quiet and get on the floor so the bed doesnt move and squeak.

Jennybee224:  Lay a towel on the ground and then be as quiet as possible.  😉

We’ve had roommates the entire time we’ve been married, so doing it when nobody else is home has never been an option. I think the first 6 months we did it on the floor on a blanket, zero noise at all. After that though, we just started trying to be quiet on the bed. No one has ever said anything about being able to hear us, and they aren’t the type to keep quiet about something like that. We also have a big fan that we turn on high that drowns out a lot of noise!

Jennybee224:  We just try to be quiet so no one can hear us and try to do it when other people are either sleeping or not around. Sometimes we have put music on if we know someone’s awake and in the next room. We shared apartments with roommates when we met and still do, so it’s just something we’ve always had to deal with.

mchitt329:  LOL…I interpreted it as meaning that they just want it so bad that it “has” to happen. 😉

Our old bedroom was right next door to our housemates so there was lots of whispering and going slow, or waiting until they went out on the weekend and diving in for a proper steamy sesh LOL! We also fortified our bed with extra feet so it didn’t creak or anything.

When we were looking to lease a new house knowing we would still retain housemates, we made sure we got a large house where our master bedroom is down one end and the other bedrooms are down the other end, there are about 4 doors and several large rooms in between us haha.  It’s more expensive, but definitely worth it.  Also made sure we had an ensuite for private showers and stuff 🙂

Jennybee224:  With roommates I don’t worry about it at all and really don’t think much about it.  We wouldn’t worry about whether roommies were home or not.  Obviously we try not to be loud, but we aren’t having quiet-as-a-mouse-quickies due to a roomie.  If I felt that I had totally tipe toe around my roommates I wouldn’t have been comfortable in my own home.

If we’ve got family or other guests in the house we either abstain or are really quiet and sneaky.

Jennybee224:  I just try to keep my voice down, but it really wasn’t a big deal. Turn up the TV or stereo if you are not sure about keeping your voice down.
