A 26-year-old Glasgow man was left "mortified" after a neighbor sent across a note to him asking to have "quieter" sex.

Soon after receiving the note, Stephen Cunningham showed it to his boyfriend who found it hilarious.

The note reads, “Dear neighbor, “Just a friendly note from your neighbor to remind you the walls in these buildings are thin and sound can travel. While we appreciate that it is inevitable that we will hear neighbors at times, we want to make you aware that we can hear more than we should.

“I’m sure you will agree that we all must be considerate and respectful of our neighbors, we don’t want to be sharing your intimate and private moments with you. Therefore, we politely ask if you could please keep the noise down at night. Please be mindful that you have neighbors in a building where sound travels. Thanks for understanding.”

In an interview with the Daily Record, Cunningham shared that the note had been slipped under his door. “I woke up at 8.30 a.m so they must have come early to make sure I was asleep. I was rolling on the floor laughing while reading it, I was mortified.

“My pals told me to buy my neighbors earplugs. I just don’t know which neighbor sent it and I don’t really want to know to be honest.”

He even took to Twitter to post the note. “Not me waking up to a ‘have sex quieter’ note from my neighbors, Mortified," he captioned it.

He told the outlet that he sent his boyfriend a text immediately. “He just laughed though and over the course of the day with everyone commenting and laughing on Twitter I quickly got over the embarrassment," he said.

"I moved in last September to the block of flats. It could be upstairs, downstairs, left or right that are complaining. Wooops! Anytime I’ve met any of the neighbors they’ve been lovely though and the letter was very very polite. I feel like it took them a while to word it properly which is nice," he added.

This comes just days after a couple got a note and a recording to tell them to stop having loud sex, reported Daily Star. The letter read, "Living in a condo building means you tend to be closer to your neighbors than you otherwise normally would be. Meaning I could be living in a completely different area of our building and still be able to hear you loudly having sex.

"Now, don't get me wrong. I am very happy you have a GREAT sex life but I think I can speak for many of us in the building when I ask you to please quiet down. I feel bad for your immediate neighbors."

The neighbor also attached a USB to prove her point.
