Do Tell: What Would You Do if You Passed Gas During Sex?

Sex and gas just don't mix, so if you know your stomach is feeling bubbly after a spicy meal, you probably have the good sense to save your intimacy for another time.

You can't always be prepared for things that come up, though (or out, in this case!), so what would you do if you accidentally tooted while getting it on? It's totally mortifying to think about, and I'm sure a lot of people would want to stop immediately, grab their clothes, and run, but some people actually think passing gas is funny. So tell me, what would you do if this happened to you?

I hope, Sylvana, that openness toward bodily functions isn't extreme. I like to watch my partners in the bathroom. I've farted during sex in the past, but I'm usually loud enough that they weren't heard. Thank God they weren't SBDs!!!

Unexpected farts when you're so seriously pumping away can be really funny. But farting, bowel movements, etc isn't something my fiancee or I "run away" to do in private...we both respect each other's bodies, all bodily functions included, so there's no shame in those things being witnessed, etc. That openness may seem really extreme, but I think it has been a wonderful way of expanding my sense of compassion for our humanness, and is a level of intimacy that I'm sure has helped to deepen our love for each other.

I'm with laura too. It accidentally happened once (not in bed) and I was so mortified. It's just one of those things that I absolutely refuse to do.

Hey, gas happens, so you have to just deal with's happened to us several times and we usually just laugh and blame it on the dog.

It's happened to us before (he's the guilty party) and we just laugh it off. If you can't laugh during sex, you're not fully enjoying it. :)

It never happened to me, but I'll probably laugh if he looks like he wants to laugh. Ignoring sounds good too.

This has never happened to me, but I know I would's automatic. Unless of course I was the culprit, then I would probably just try to ignore it and hide my embarrassment.

I've always dated guys with fantastic senses of humor so it's never been an issue. I can't recall having done it during sex though.

To quote my dad: "That's body control; other people belch." It's not a big deal. Besides, there are other sounds going on as well. *shrug*

i'm between two extremes - i wouldn't laugh (i don't think farts are funny since i'm not 12) but i also wouldn't run off in mortification i'd just ignore it and pretend it didnt happen
