OK, I started seeing this guy I really like a few months ago. Things had been going really great, particularly in the last month. However, last weekend after a night out we went back to his and ended up in a 69 and when I was getting into it, I let a fart slip. It was a small one and he definitely noticed, he kind of laughed but then went back to what he was doing. I was too humiliated to acknowledge it so just went on as though nothing had happened. I had to leave early the next day so wasn't really talking to him at all. But now I haven't heard from him since which is completely unlike him. I'm just so ashamed about the whole thing. I really feel like he must be completely disgusted by me now and is probably laughing about me with his friends. I just wanted to know if it has ever happened to any of you? And is it normal or is it just one of those things that he will forever associate me with and be completely turned off by? I'm really worried about this so any input would be really appreciated!
Welcome to ehealthforum.
You need not be ashamed of what happened. Sometimes during vaginal sex or at times when something is inserted into vagina, air gets pushed into the vagina. When the penis or another object is removed, this air gets released, and it makes a noise, which is sometimes called a "queef" or a "vaginal fart." Sometimes air is also released even if nothing is inserted into the vagina. It can also happen if your guy is probably pulling out too far and then when he goes back in he is shoving air inside, or if he blows inside your vagina during oral sex.
The muscles in your vaginal can be weak and cause you to lose suction. Doing the Keegles exercise also helps. If you don't know how to do Keegles I suggest the next time you are going pee that you try to stop and start. Those are the muscles that you want to target while doing this exercise. Once you do that; you can do them anywhere (without the peeing part of course).
Hope it helps. It is a normal phenomenon to happen, many women face this, and few guys are so amused with this that they try to make their partners have this âfartâ coming out while having intercourse.
