My parents are way too sexually open!

They openly flirt and make innuendoes while other people (including me) are in the room, and they certainly aren't shy about public displays of affection. I can hear them -- ugh -- doing the deed the next two rooms over at night, and they do that like three times a week.

How do I bring up that they need to control themselves?
POLL: How do I talk to my parents about their behavior?
78% (1283) You don't. You should be thankful that your parents have a happy, healthy relationship. Get some headphones and get over yourself.
4% (68) Tape them and play it at the breakfast table.
13% (219) Bring it up tactfully and privately -- with both of them at the same time.
0% (5) Barge in on them a few times. They'll get the picture.
0% (9) Roll your eyes and sigh loudly. That always does the trick.
2% (45) What are they? Like, over thirty by now? Their body parts couldn't possibly remain operational for that much longer.

POLL: "I don't like him like that"

Okay so I'm friends with my best friend's boyfriend. I like him as a friend because we have a lot in common. They broke up a week ago. We've been texting, and he asked me out. I don't like him like that, and now he's constantly texting me and freaks out if I don't text him back, every five minutes! He's driving me crazy, and I don't know what to say to him to get him to leave me alone. I want him as my friend but I don't know how to let him down and tell him he's freaking me out. What should I do? How do I get him to stop bothering me 24/7?
POLL: How should she tell him?
85% (1165) Tell him to his face, and in direct terms. Otherwise, he's just gonna hear what he wants to hear.
2% (30) He'll get the hint sooner or later. Just respond to the texts you want to respond to and ignore the rest.
7% (98) Freeze him out completely. No contact. No replies.
2% (39) Maybe you ought think about giving him a chance
2% (30) Change your phone number. And maybe your address.
