Our expert says:
Yes, sometimes conflicts may be racial in origin, often they're just related to simply nasty people being selfish and unfriendly.
If the issue is conflict about noisy love-making, it sounds as though you are being sensibly cautious about not disturbing neighbours ( some complexes seem to have micro-thin walls !); but apparently it is your neighbours who are especially noisy and thoughtless about it.
Any complex is surely supposed to have both stated and printed rules of conduct for tenants / owners, and a Body Corporate with the legal responsibility of dealing with breaches of the rules. Get a copy and read the rules carefully, and make a formal complaint to the Body COrporate about your concerns, also stating that when you tried to approach the couple at night when the noise was great, he was so aggressive that you feared taking the matter further with him.
Do you know ( anyway, the Body Corporate must be able to tell you ) whether these ruffians are tenants or owners ? If tenants, the owner of the unit could also be approached, as they have also a responsibility to see that their tenants obey the rules and are considerate of neighbours.
The readers comments siding with the noisy, showing off couple are simply being provicative and foolish. Everyone has the right to legal sex, but not to making excessive noise late at night, for whatever reason. And loud noise, whether vocally or from the bed, is not necessary to enjoy an active and splendid sex life. Your rights would be the same, and their responsibility to be considerate would be the same, if they were playing loud music or holding raucous parties.
