Meet New York City’s loudest lovers.
Olga Valerio, 49, outed herself to the Post as one half of the dynamic duo that sparked the most 311-hotline complaints in the city for loud sex.
The hairstylist’s partner in carnal cacophony inside her Bay Ridge, Brooklyn apartment is a man young enough to be her son, 26-year-old building handyman Byron Perez.
Olga’s fourth-floor pad at 7201 Ridge Blvd. was named in a 2015 DNAinfo report as home to the city’s highest number of 311 gripes about clamorous coitus. Neighbors, claiming the couple’s moans and grunts jolted them awake at all hours of the night, complained a half-dozen times alone in a three-month period, the site reported, citing city data.
Neither Valerio nor Perez were named in any media accounts at the time, including The Post’s. But many assumed that Valerio’s daughter, 31-year-old Dahiana Valerio, was part of the deafening duo.
Olga Valerio is coming forward now, she says, in an act of motherly love, to take full credit, or blame, as the moaning momma.
She says there’s nothing wrong with showing some passion in the bedroom – though she was shocked when her alleged ear-shattering exploits made the news.
“It’s natural, it’s normal,” the mother of four assured The Post in an interview alongside her much-younger beau. “I never thought that this would happen, but it happened. I didn’t know that we were doing it too loud!”

Perez, for his part, said he had no clue the pair had caused a carnal commotion until the stories came out. But he admits the couple left their fourth-floor bedroom window wide open during their wee-hour whoopie. They no longer do this.
“I can’t say, I wouldn’t know,” a grinning Perez replied when asked if he considered himself louder than average between the sheets.
The pair said they met one night five years ago while Olga was taking out the trash in the building’s courtyard. The handyman, who was living in a basement apartment, started flirting with her, saying “all kinds of good stuff,” she recalled.
The romance escalated quickly – and the pair have been together, defying convention, ever since.
“Chemistry is chemistry,” Olga told The Post. She called her relationship with Perez healthier than those she has had over the years with men her own age.
But it was her daughter Dahiana who was inadvertantly tagged as Perez’s lover, both women say, after the bleach-blond musician, wearing a striped maxi dress, answered the door for reporters huddled outside their apartment the day the news broke. Dahiana says she had only been temporarily staying with her mom after getting into a fight with her ex-boyfriend.

Olga was reluctant to go public at the time to set the record straight because she feared being ridiculed for having a young lover, she said.
“I don’t feel old, but people start to talk, you know? I wasn’t sure I wanted to be in that kind of situation,” she told The Post. “At the beginning I was so embarrassed, but now I’m okay with it. I said, ‘If I need to tell the whole story, I’ll do it.’ I’m doing this for Dahiana.”
Dahiana said it was awkward, to say the least, for people to think she was having sex with a man who was actually dating her mother. Relatives in the Dominican Republic were in shock.
“My father is like really old-fashioned, very caught in the old traditional ways, so for him it was like, ‘What? You’re in the paper with your mom’s boyfriend?’” Dahiana said.
“My mom and I have always had a good relationship, but not open like that,” she added.
Dahiana, who plans to release her first Reggaeton single as “D Magic” later this summer and also works at Body Art Studios tattoo shop, said her photo being splashed across the news brought her a ton of attention – not all wanted.

Almost immediately, she started getting catcalled on the street, she said. Some lustful suitors took their courtship even further by knocking on her mother’s door asking for her. One man even offered her $40,000 for one night in bed, she said.
That she was visibly pregnant did nothing to slow down the tide of men.
“The thing is that people think freak,” she told the Post. “They think that if you’re that loud, if you’re in the paper as being the loudest in the five boroughs, in their mind they’re like ‘Oh my god, she must really enjoy sex.’”
That characterization is not exactly wrong, she said. But Dahiana, who posts jaw-dropping selfies in tight dresses and underwear on her Instagram account, can’t say for sure if she has inherited her mother’s sonorous style in bed.
“Am I loud? I wouldn’t know, but I am a very passionate woman, passionate about sex,” she said.
As for her mom’s decibel level? “I haven’t heard her, thank God.”
