Are You Comfortable Passing Gas In Front Of Your Partner?

Remember that Sex and the City where Carrie is lying in bed and a fart accidentally oozes its way out? There is a reason why everyone can relate to her mortification and that's because it's happened to the best of us!

What is your policy on farting and belching in front of your partner? Is it something that you can do in front of each other without feeling colossal humiliation or is it something that you prefer to keep private?

Everyone has to pass gas at some time, the difference between TYPES of people is how they do it. I'm proud to be a polite person. It's interesting to me how people are saying you're not being your true self if you can't pass gas in front of the people close to you. I consider being your "true" self who you are when you're NOT just in the comfort of people you know. I guess that means everyone - unless they go around farting in front of anyone - is never their true selves except when they're stinking up their friends' spaces.

lol Bluejeanie! Bunbunhun, totally get what you are saying. I remember my best friend's boyfriend being surprised women fart, because his mother never did! LMAO How ridiculous. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein

OK, I had to chime in. My mom's family is one giant gas factory (we swear it's in the genes), and if we had to run out of the room every time, we'd never see each other. ;) So, while I think it's a good idea to *try* to be polite about it, I don't think it's always feasible, and you shouldn't be villified for letting one go now and then. And not to offend anyone (I swear!), I couldn't help but hear some prim Victorian voice reading all those "I was raised with good manners" posts! :)

My fiance does it all the time, but I would NEVER!!! I agree with everyone who says it's just simple good manners! Really, how hard is it to get up and do it somewhere else? I understand sometimes it just happens, but it's gross to make a conscious effort to push it out...especially in bed! I have made a no farting in bed rule for him...we'll see how long that lasts! :p

I agree with Thoia and MandyJoBo - I find it rude and I do not like to smell someone else's brand. There is something called manners. I deal with my boyfriends farts - but he was raised without the manners I adhere to. I do not think it is "being yourself" if you fart. I am not saying hold it in - go in the other room, get it out - make sure it doesn't follow you. If a fart slips out - oh well!

My fiance and I have to get ready at the same time in the mornings, or one of us would have to get up waaaay earlier, and we would rather sleep longer. It's just not something that weirds us out. It's not like I do it in his face or anything. LMAO

I'd feel uncomfortable around anyone. I'd go to say it is a time thing, but then again, I was with someone for 6 years and I was never comfortable. I eat pretty carefully and don't experience a lot of gas as it is. My boyfriend tried to blame my dog the other day and we thought it was funny and I don't care if he does. He always announces he has to go to the bathroom and comes out grinning saying he really enjoys going to the bathroom. But I think guys have a thing for that as it is. LOL. I guess it depends on the person.

Haha... like the book, Everyone Poops. I wouldn't pass in front of my bf. Maybe when I'm married for a few years and he finally breaks the ice on that one, then it'll be perfectly acceptable, until then I'll be using Beano and excusing myself to the restroom.

When I was younger, I would fart in front of my boyfriends and not care. Now I think it's gross and rude. Excuse yourself and go to the bathroom like a civilized human being! It's called MANNERS. Who says you can't be polite and still be comfortable? There comes a time when it's past being funny and/or cute and is just gross; a point when you don't need to prove how comfortable you are with each other. Then you'll start using the manners your mothers taught you, or wish you had used them all along. Or did your parents go around farting in front of each other and everyone else? Classy.
