Marital relations with Sefer Torah in room



May one have marital relations with a Sefer Torah in the room?[1]

It is forbidden to have marital relations if a Sefer Torah is in the room. If one is able to remove the Sefer Torah from the room and place it in a second room, then he must do so.[2] If another room is not available then one is to make a Mechitza in front of the Sefer Torah in order to permit marital relations.
