East Village | New York City
October 8, 2013
I was up with Rick in Harlem for a considerable amount of the evening and as I was falling asleep, he grabbed my attention.
"They are there again" -Rick
He had spoken earlier of this couple he had heard reportedly having rough sex but was unsure where it was coming from - he was determined to find them. There was a man slapping a woman’s ass, allegedly, calling her a bitch and to take it, among other things. She was really enjoying it. Rick was really enjoying listening to this couple; being a voyeur.
I got home and found a text on my phone “They were on the roof”.
After some time I decided to bike home. I entered my building and at about the second floor, this is what I heard. It made me smile. I stopped for a little to record and be a single voyeur. I texted Rick that I caught this couple and “at least someone is having sex”. He texted back that he had been contemplating for awhile and had come to a decision to reunite and try and work things out with his ex and that we should just remain friends, no more sex.
The city was under a tornado watch that evening.
