    Could you maybe tell her you have a fantasy of you both trying to drive each other wild without making a single noise?

    Ftr I gave myself blisters in my ears as a kid/teen trying to block out that noise. For some horrible reason I always got stuck in the room next to theirs each time we moved.

    Gag her! It was a problem for dh and I. I never made a sound but he would talk and moan. I hated it so I gagged him. He loved that even more. Now it's much more subdued and I can even join in with soft sounds now.

    Good luck. Talk to her about it.

    Default Wives/Girlfriends who are noisy in bed

    Arghhhhh I used to hear my parents, so gross! Definitely not what kids need to hear!
    I am the loud one in our relationship and have to make an effort to be quieter. A didn't realise how loud until friends recently stayed over in the spare room that is next to the kids rooms at the other end of the house.
    They heard everything! Oops!
    Talk to her away from the bedroom.

    Could you maybe have some music on in your room to drown out some of the noise? The pp suggestion of white noise is good too. And yep a lock on the door.

    Dh and I are both pretty loud, although me more so. Its not too bad now that the kids are at the other end of the house and very deep sleepers, but in our previous house the walls were paper thin and his teenage sister lived with us so we had to be careful. I just shoved my face in the pillow lol.

    Surely if she really tries, she can be quieter?

    I mean, there's a lot of ladies out there who enjoy getting down to business, but in my opinion loud moaning/screaming is something you can tone down if you want or need to.

    I can see why you are finding it off-putting OP.

    This. I'm having difficulty believing this is even a thread. Just tell your wife to zip it.

    Why is it difficult? People post here all the time about problems in the bedroom that would be solved with a conversation, what makes this different?

    Unless she's shattering the windows or vibrating the tiles on the roof, I think you should just leave her be! You said you've talked to her and she doesn't enjoy it as much if she can't make noise. You've been together 17 years, so obviously it can't have worried you that much before now. Would you prefer she be loud and enjoy it, or be so focussed on being quiet that she doesn't?

    Kids sleep deep. Mine are a bit older than yours and nothing wakes them once they are out. They won't always sleep that deep, so I wouldn't be too worried for a few years. Alternatively, try kissing her. Can't scream if you're kissing.

    Whoops, didn't mean to thank you.
    He said he has talked to her about it.
