A British woman was left red-faced after being allegedly advised to chew toffees to curb her noisy lovemaking.
Louise Lee revealed that she received a warning from a city council after her neighbours in Little France flat complained about her loud sex life.
The 28-year-old said that she and her 23-year-old beau Les Bateson were threatened with an antisocial behavior order, if more complaints were registered against them.
And during the meeting with an antisocial behavior officer, Lee alleged being offered the "ridiculous" advice.
"At one point she said that perhaps I should chew toffees while I have sex. It was ridiculous," the Scotsman quoted her as telling Evening News.
"I was told that if anyone complains about us within 28 days, the council will start legal proceedings for an Asbo," she added.
The couple have denied the accusation, and said that the embarrassing experience had now taken its toll on their life in the bedroom.
Meanwhile, a city council spokeswoman contested the allegation that the official had made the inappropriate reference.
She said:"We had received a number of complaints against Ms Lee and regardless of what the cause of the disturbance is, her neighbours are entitled to peace and quiet. We refute claims our officer was inappropriate in handling this case."
