A woman has been remanded in custody accused of breaching an Asbo banning her from being noisy during sex.
Neighbours complained of hearing Caroline Cartwright, 48, groaning and her bed banging against the wall at her home in Washington, Wearside.
Earlier this month she was given a four-year Asbo banning her from making excessive noise anywhere in England.
But she appeared in court on Monday, charged with three breaches of her Asbo in just 10 days.
She was remanded in custody until 5 May.
Cartwright was convicted of five breaches of a noise abatement notice on 17 April and fined £515.
But Houghton le Spring Magistrates' Court heard police arrested her on 18 April, on 22 April and again on 26 April, after reports from neighbours she was flouting the ban with her husband Steve.
Prosecutor Claire Ward said neighbours complained to police about early morning noises including shouting and groaning coming from the Cartwrights' home in Hall Road, Concord, Washington.
Cartwright elected to be tried by jury and the case will be transferred to Newcastle Crown Court at a later date.
