Roommate Told to 'Find a New Place' After Calling Host a 'Pervert'

A man was called a "pervert" by his roommate for having sex with his wife in the same house as him. The poster then promptly told his roommate, whom he let stay with him, "to find a new place to stay." The internet is rallying around the Redditor, and they support his decision wholeheartedly.

The man posted the situation to Reddit's "Am I The A**hole" subreddit on February 4 under the username u/pentupjerkta. The post, which has over 13,000 upvotes, is titled, "AITA for telling my 'roommate' to find a new place when he called me a pervert?"

The original poster (OP), who is expecting their first child together with his wife, allowed their mutual friend to stay with them after he was kicked out by his partner. The man has also been laid off for almost a year as well. When he asked to stay in their guest room for a couple of weeks, the pair agreed. However, it's now been a couple of months, although the OP said it's "no big deal but we are getting a bit antsy to have our space back. We told him he needs to be out in two months though because we'd like a little 'baby moon' before our child gets here."

The couple, who are intimate on a daily basis, was heard by the roommate one evening after he tripped the shut-off in the bathroom. When he went to ask how to get the lights to turn back on, the roommate was apparently "listening" to see if they were awake and heard them getting intimate, according to the Redditor.

According to WebMD, research conducted by the General Social Survey revealed that 19 percent of adults in the country had sex two or three times a month. About 17 percent of adults had sex once a month, and 16 percent had sex twice or three times a week. About 25 percent revealed they had sex on a weekly basis, and 5 percent had intercourse four or more times a week.

The following morning, the roommate spoke with the couple, and the Redditor revealed: "He was really uncomfortable to know we were doing that while he's in the house. I pointed out to him that some days he doesn't leave the house at all [most days if we are being honest], so it's kind of inevitable, his room is also on a whole different floor. He then said for the next two months he will go for a walk once a week so 'we can if we must.' I told him that wouldn't work because it's a daily thing."

However, things didn't end there. Apparently, the roommate got "very upset," demanding to know if the information was indeed true that they'd been intimate every day for the last three months he'd been staying there. The OP added, "and said with my wife's 'condition' he wouldn't have expected that, and that I was a pervert. He then went on to say we are both perverted for doing that while he is here and that we violated his consent. I told him to find a new place to stay then."

With over 1,800 comments, people are completely on the side of the OP. Many Redditors believed the poster is in the right, and he isn't the a**hole in the situation.

One user pointed out the man is living with a married couple, asking, "does he seriously only expect you to be intimate when he's not in the house? Not like you guys were doing it on the couch or screaming like banshees."

Some had harsh words for the roommate in the situation. "NTA, and holy s**t what an a** thinking that women lose all sex appeal just because they're pregnant!" a user said. "I would feel genuinely sorry for any woman he ever knocks up."

A Redditor is defending the OP and his wife, saying "if you can't be comfortable and have privacy in your own home, then where can you?" But they didn't stop there. "Besides, who's the real pervert here—the married couple being intimate, or the man listening to them at the door?"

One person thought the roommate needs to go, and he's the a**hole in the situation. "You and your wife sound like you have a fantastic marriage, he's the one with the problem," they said.

Some had sarcastic comments about the whole situation. "How dare you have sex with your wife in your own home," they said. "NTA [not the a**hole]."

Other Redditors were just shocked by the whole thing. "Sorry...what?" someone asked. "Since when [does] a married couple need approval to have sex? In their own house? From their guest?"
