Sorry in advance if this is TMI. (and yes, I know this is gross!)
Ladies, what do you do when you have gas around your boyfriend/husband? Last night, I was on my period, and had ate something to make my stomach extremely upset. My stomach was rumbling ALL night in bed, and I was in so much pain because I had to big time… pass gas… but he was laying right there! I’d try to get up and do it in the bathroom, but as soon as I laid down again, the gas would be back. I was so uncomfortable that I drove back to my place at 4 am.
Thank god I have my own place, because this made me think, what am I going to do when I LIVE with a guy? Or have only a one bedroom/one bathroom with him? I felt so helpless last night!!!
P.S. And it’s not a matter of me not feeling comfortable around my man. It’s just the way I am, my last bf and I dated for 4 years and I never let one slip. That’s just me!

@kerplunk00: Well that doesn’t bother me at all! I would have said sorry not much I can do about it lol. But then again, I think we got past that point after like 2 months of dating. I don’t see how people can go so long without that happening, I mean there has to be one time that it happened accidentally or something! I knew one couple that had been together 10 years and the girl said she would literally wait for her husband to leave the house to go to the bathroom or anything like that! Thats no way to live in my opinion!

I just pass it in front of him if needed. It hurts my stomach to hold it in so I’m not going to do that. It’s a natural thing to do. Sure I was embarrassed the first time but now I don’t really care. If it faiths, it happens.

He farts in front of me more than I do. However, I burp in front of him more.
So we’re even! It’s normal.

It took me awhile to fart around my then boyfriend/now husband. Maybe 6 months? After that all bets were off. I am not disgusting about it unless we are being goofy. Generally, i just fart if I have to and keep going about my business. lol
He on the other hand……..fucking disgusting.

I’m probably going to get flamed for this, but … My personal opinion… If you can’t fart in front of someone, then you’ve got no business being as intimate as sleeping with them.

@red_rose: Some people like to keep the mystery alive. He’s my partner, not my brother.
OP, to actually answer your question rather than tell you that you’re wrong, you could have went and laid down on the couch. I’ve been with my husband for years and the mystery helps, not hurts, our sex life.

We fart and burp around each other. We really don’t care, in fact we find it quite amusing and sometimes have competitions (though he ALWAYS wins!). We also know what we are like when the other has food poisoning or an upset stomach, we just joke about it and be done with it.
We still have an amazing sex life (at least 5 times a week!) and we live together. I don’t see what the big deal is personally (though I have a very crude/dark sense of humour, as does he).
Edit: Glad to know other bees make a joke of it with their SOs! I honestly don’t understand people who are incapable of doing this around their SOs, like you’re going to live with them, does it REALLY matter in the grand scheme of things? I read a story of a woman who absolutely refused to even POOP in the house if her husband was there. Seriously?!

@kerplunk00: Eh it is human nature we all have to fart/burp. Considering my DH has seen me at my worst. Hello having a child and breaking an ankle so passing gas is not a huge deal in this house hold. Though we do crack up when our son who is 2 lets huge ones rip.
