Which Comes First? Showering or Passing Gas

Once the awkwardness of the first few weeks of dating subsides, your comfort level increases, which makes it easier to share more intimate moments. The things you do with your new guy require a certain degree of openness and trust, so tell me, which came first in your relationship: showering together or tooting in front of each other?

LOL farting! Rarely it just slips but trust and believe that just like with my ex, the next guy will do it first! Lol.

I absolutely love this story, it's great. Bluestar your comment cracked me up. These questions are ridiculous, but I'm all for showering with a guy. I don't even have to be that serious with him. I'm not going to take my sweet time and shave and all that other good stuff. But showering will always come before farting. My entire family is convinced I don't fart or poop, which is just the way I like it. I have a very close family by the way, I guess I'm just that good... lol

Showering. I've been with my husband for 7 years and we still pretend we don't fart in front of each other, like if one of us does, we pretend it didn't happen.

We fart in front of each other sometimes. I can't believe people are so uptight about this. It's a natural bodily function. Just laugh it off and get over it. Showering together is a much bigger deal...much more intimate.

The farting started by accident one night when I fell asleep while we were watching a movie together on the couch. He was still awake with his hand cupped under my butt and I farted in my sleep. He told me what happened when I woke up and I was so embarrassed. He was really cool about it and said "Well I guess we can fart in front of each other now."

We showered together first, but I remember farting in front of him. It was the kind of thing that slipped out. It was really awkward for me, and I was embarassed. He thought it was cute that I was embarassed, and he said my fart sounded cute too.

Showering for sure - showering together always leads to sex, but it took me a bit of time to fart in his presence. Oddly enough, the first time I farted we were in the shower so go figure. He still has never farted in front of me that I know of :P

Of course showering first. That's sexy. Farting is most certainly not.

So funny the amount of people who refuse to fart in front of their sig os. For me, the shower came first because he and I had been makeout buddies for a looooong time and finally slept together without the clause of a relationship...showering together came w/ the territory. Now we live together and fart around each other all the time. We do NOT fart ON each other or do the dutch oven thing, but when the toots come out, it's pretty funny. I did wait awhile (like, 7 mos) before I let loose (we were on a week-long road trip - how could I avoid it!) and he was relieved because he'd been censoring for me. My ex did stuff like the dutch oven to me and I found that really disrespectful because I didn't like it, but if both peeps are into that - to each their own!

"I think a lot of people use the "comfortable" excuse so they can be lazy and give up trying for their significant other." - really? so farting/burping/being human around your bf means you don't try? give up trying for your signifcant other? what does that mean? i wouldn't want to be in a realtionship where i couldn't fart in front of the guy. and i totally agree with whiplash.

Forgot to add that just because I fart in front of him doesn't mean I fart in front of other people (even my family). I wouldn't do that. It's just that like clareberrys, I know my bf doesn't mind and in fact thinks it's funny. As do I, for that matter. I get that not all people find it amusing or are comfortable doing that in front of others, but I don't get what kind of "mystery" we're supposed to be keeping in the relationship. Pretending that we don't have bodily functions?

If I remember correctly, my boyfriend and I probably showered together first; however, I agree with Whiplash. skigurl--It's not rude if the other person doesn't find it offensive. My boyfriend and I fart in front of each other and neither of us finds it "rude" or unacceptable. If we did, both of us (and we've been together over 6 years) would spend an inordinate amount of time making special trips to the bathroom just to fart. Plus, we live in a studio, so we'd probably hear anyway, unless the water's turned on or something, which is even more ridiculous.

It was weird when he popped into the shower to grab something, and I was feeling really conscious about being wet and naked under broad daylight in front of him. Somehow when this whole situation is switched into the dimmer bedroom context, it doesn't feel as awkward. What a contrast! As for passing gas, I once did it and he asked "Did you just fart?", I answered the lamest thing ever! "Maybe? I don't know." But fortunately, he didn't ask further!

My boyfriend is disgustingly flatuant, which mean he farts, loudly, and when he doesn't he makes an announcement. It's one of his worst habits, after picking his nose. I know when he's about to do it because he tenses up, makes a face, stops in the middle of a sentence, etc. Ugh.

I make it a point to always do both at the same time, in a new relationship I fart on him in the shower. :smelly:

Personally, I would rather shower together 1st but my bf farts up a storm. He thinks it's hilarious!! I however have never farted in front of him - I don't fart in front of anyone except my mom and sister and that is only if absolutely necessary. But hey - different strokes for diff folks.

I didn't fart in front of my hubby until we were married but it's not like it's a big deal.

I don't really see what the big deal is about farting in front of your boyfriend. I'm sure all the women that are farting in front of their bf's (including myself) know that their bf loves them enough that it really doesn't matter. I know that one day I'll be old and wrinkly and there are going to be a lot grosser things that we'll each have to deal with so a fart seems pretty tame. My boyfriend thinks it's hilarious when I fart especially if it's loud. More power to us - the lady farters of the world!!!

exactly...humour is subjective...and in my opinion, forcing out a fart in front of my significant other would be disgusting, not humourous.
