An unidentified man installs an old chain swing at home and disturbs neighbours with sexual, squeaking noises

Berlin: A German court says a landlady was within her rights to evict a man for persistently using a squeaky swing set in his apartment late at night as a sex prop.

The court in Munich said the unidentified man installed the “very old” chain swing set in his apartment in 2012 and regularly disturbed his neighbours with “sexual, athletic and squeaking noises” late into the night, causing multiple complaints.

Quiet post 10 pm
It noted his rental agreement included a clause to be quiet between 10 pm and 7 am. Upholding the landlady’s decision to evict him, the court focuses on the tenant’s use of the swing set, saying its use late at night “would no longer correspond to normal rental use, and must therefore not be tolerated as socially acceptable.”
