Frisky clubgoers are treating a Midtown block like their own boudoir, having so much sex in the back seats of their cars that disgusted residents want the city to ban parking on weekend nights.

Neighbors around West 30th between Seventh and Eighth avenues — where stylish apartments rent for as much as $9,500 a month — say their block is littered with condoms and other paraphernalia after horny patrons of Rebel NYC and The Parlour Midtown leave the hot spots on weekend nights.

They have now convinced Community Board 5 to support a rare request for a no-parking zone on those nights.

CB5 officials say they’ve been hearing the complaints for years.

Following the vote two weeks ago, the community board — which cannot enforce the ban — petitioned the city to strip the street of parking on weekend nights.

“There’s all kinds of problematic activity going on, like noise, violence, sexual activity and drug use,” Raju Mann, the chair of CB5’s Transportation Committee, said in support of the unorthodox request.

The Department of Transportation is reviewing the proposal, according to a city spokesman.

Sleep-deprived residents are keeping their fingers crossed.

“The cops are called all the time — drugs, sex, double parking, cars honking their horns, traffic blocked up,” said longtime resident Richard Schwartz.
