Farting during sex is not uncommon, and is nothing you should be ashamed about. According to DiscoveryHealth.com: "The most characteristic physical feature of [female] orgasm is the sensation produced by the simultaneous rhythmic contractions of the pubococcygeus muscle (pc muscle). Along with contractions of the anal sphincter, rectum and perineum , the uterus and outer third of the vagina (the orgasmic platform)." It's no wonder that women often fart upon reaching, or when close to, orgasm.
The only time farting during sexual activity could be a problem is if your partner isn't mature about the situation and has little to no knowledge about what happens to the female body during orgasm.
Which brings me to how horrified I am by sep1092's comment to this post.
There is nothing wrong with your now ex-girlfriend. You, my friend, are the disgusting pig. Your lack of sexual education (and not to mention the complete lack of respect that you have for this girl) makes you the fool in this situation. This poor girl is better off not knowing you.
Over Christmas break, my boyfriend and I had sex numerous times since we don't see eachother very often (long distance). It wasn't until we tried anal that I started farting during sex. It was so embarrassing. Needless to say, I cannot handle anal. But the first time I farted was during sex. The second time, i'm still humiliated by this, was while I orgasmed as he was doing oral on me. I immediately started to cry because I had never had this problem before. We just laugh about it but secretly I am mortified. To this day, even through masturbation, I tend to fart occasionally even though I havn't done anal since.
Wow. I'd say that your boyfriend (if you still have one) is a very lucky man. don't feel embarrassed about farting, it is natural. I actually love it if a women farts during sex. in your case, you are perfect. I don't know what you look like (and vice versa), but if it were me, I would encourage it. The only time you would cry is the orgasm, because for some reason, there are some women who cry during sex, which is another topic in itself.
This happened last night which I why I found myself here now. This has never happened to me before. The queefs, yes - but last night at the start of the big "O", I passed gas and my BF laughed - I suppose better than vomiting since he was down in the general area. I wanted to die. I rolled over and pulled the pillow over my head and said "I'm never having sex again!!!" He just laughed again and reassured me it was nothing I could control. But I kid you not, I did not feel it coming what-so-ever!! it was a shocker to say the least. This AM, he said "That was soooo funny!" and I wanted to smack him across the head but I guess he still loves me LOL. Next time I'll stick a cork in my butt. If it doesn't supress the gas, perhaps it will shoot out and supress his laughter.
Farting during sex happens sometime. I get embarrassed still from it. but you have to realize that women have a lot of their organs getting poked during sex. The penis of a man being inside you causes pressure which causes things to be pushed out ha ha. When i feel the need i try to hold it in the best i can, or i find a reason to run off. It is embarrassing when it happens during. Oh and the comment from sep1092... Your an unbelievable jerk!!!! Your the pig. You act like she took a dump on your penis. I'm surprised any woman would be with you.
sep1092- your a jerk! You really think she did that on purpose!
Today, this happened to me for the first time ever. At first, I was embarrassed, but when I realized that my boyfriend didn''t care, I felt a little bit better about the situation. I realized that it''s probably normal, because so much air pressure is building up, it''s gotta go somewhere. Some people, like sep1092 need to grow a heart, and a brain!
I have had a vaginal fart before, but never an anal one during sex. I figured it''s probably air pressure.
Sep1092 at least she pinched your nose. She could have and should have stuffed your face in her butt.
MissouriWest10 that was so funny. By far the most amusing thing I''ve read on here. At least you have someone who will laugh for you when you cant
After being married for 15yrs, I am now again in the dating world. Farting during sex wasn''t an issue during the marriage...he had seen me give birth to 3 of his children. But now, after having had a few new sexual relationships, I realize how awkward it is being with someone you haven''t know for YEARS.
The farting urge for me comes after penetration from behind. Either doggy or reverse cowgirl. Those positions put a lot of pressure on the rectum...and in my theory, are pushing air UP there. When I go to missionary after, that''s when the urge to fart hits. It is SO embarrising, and I don''t have much control. So I tell my man to give me a second. The urge usually passes after a moment. If not, I get him pumping hard and pull his head by mine (furthest away from down there) and let it go. He hasn''t noticed...YET. It also can occur during doggy...although I think it''s just the sensation and not acutal gas. And MEN it doesn''t help when you''re pushing our cheeks apart in this position!
I've farted during sex many times, especially with my now husband of 6 years. It's just no big deal to us and I thank him for making me so comfortable about it. I would definitely prefer not to fart, but with all the pressure on my abdomen and awkward positions sex gets you into, I just can't always help it. I wouldn't say I do it every time we have sex, but probably every third or fourth time. Early on I was embarrassed, but right away he said no big deal, we had a little laugh about it and went about what we were doing. Now we don't even mention it most times.
As Noahac01 mentioned, some positions are worse than others. If I'm on my back with my legs pulled up and he's on top of me entering my vagina, I can't stop it. The pressure on my belly and butt spread open just allows it to happen. Fortunately it's not too noisy in that position and I don't think he notices it. Ha ha I'm also blessed with my farts rarely being very smelly. I'm sure they don't smell like roses, but they don't usually stink with that sewer smell.
I am VERY careful not to fart in his face when he's going down on me. More than once I've grabbed him and pulled him up to my belly with a "Wait! Wait! Wait!" and a giggle while the urge goes away, or if I really can't hold it I let it go and make some comment about not being a lady, but my husband always says no big deal, we laugh and then he gets back to the tongue job!
I understand how it can be embarrassing for it to happen, but if your partner isn't understanding or worse tries to make you feel bad about it, then I would say you need a different partner!
sep1092 you are a real jerk you know that. you need to get over yourself. it was a fart. shows what kinda man you are. gee i bwoke up wif hew becaws she fawted.... your selfish and i hope she finds a real man who loves her and accepts her.
This happened to me for the first time ever the other day...I just paused and was like what the hell do I do...He snickered and it completely killed the mood. Rolled over and pulled a pillow over my face. I mean I know he wasn't mature about it but it didn't even have that building pressure sensation, it just happened without warning. Suggestions on how to deal with it with a new partner?
There is no problem with it, even if it is embarassing
sep1092, you're a dick.
Farting is a natural reaction, both men and females do. I'm sure if you farted during sex it would be just fine. Women shouldn't have to watch what they eat all day to avoid gassy foods to make sure their boyfriend or whoever doesn't have to hear them fart.
If you honestly broke up with your girlfriend because she farted in bed, I hope you never get another girlfriend again. You were over-reacting. If she was climaxing, she obviously wasn't thinking about the fart about to come out. She tried to have a sense of humor about it because it was probably horrifying to her. You say you were horrified? At least you didn't get called a pig and dumped over a silly natural thing. You're an !**@!.
As for the whole thing. I've had it happen before not even with just sex, it was when I was younger and was getting fingered, I had a small fart, and the guy said "oh well that's a new one", I was mortified, mainly because I was young, and I ended up faking an orgasm to end it. It hasn't happened since, but I would never have sex with a guy who couldn't just have a sense of humor about it. Meaning I would never have sex with sep1092. Only immature guys will find it to be utterly disgusting to the point of not wanting to have sex again, or even be able to finish after it happens.
I mean, we all fart at least 40 times a day. So tend to one, there is a good chance at it happening during intimate moments.
honestly I would care less if a guy farted during sex. In a way it can actually bring a couple closer if they can be cool about stuff like that.
I agree with a lot of people in this thread. You should be embarrassed about things that happen naturally. If you are with someone you are comfortable with perhaps ask him to move for a moment, let it happen and continue. It's not a huge deal and he should realize that. When men fart, it's funny, when woman do it, it's gross. Not true at all lol. If you're uncomfortable doing it around him, excuse yourself for a moment. If this happens frequently maybe you should consider changing your diet.
Everybody farts. I can't believe you guys are making such a big deal out of it. Guys do it, women do it. You just have to be comfortable enough with your partner that these things don't bother you.
If it's during the intercourse, just slow down and let it out. If your partner's head is between your leg, just notify him or her to come up for a a minute (engage in some other activity), then send him or her down again. It happens, don't torture yourself over it. If you and your partner bond together and trust each other, these things is the least that you are going to be worrying about.
sep1092- You are the biggest jerk. Honestly, sometimes woman cant help it. She was prob trying to laugh it off, because of how uncomfortable she was. If you have not noticed by reading this, that women get embarrassed by that stuff. Also, Ive noticed you only really want to fart when the guy gets deep into you. You prob sucked with the other women and couldn't get it in all the way. If the woman farted the star spangled banner for heavens sake I would understand. But you were just pure evil what you did to that girl. I hope you get whats coming to you. You will never know what women put up with for men during sex.
I'm not saying embrace your fart, but women, if you have to hold it back. If you cant hold it back, and your man acts like that douche bag, then he is an jerk anyways and deserves to die alone. It is what it is (no pun intended)
I have been having so many problems with farting during sexual activity lately. Not necessarily intercourse, usually fingering. I have just told my boyfriend how much it bothers me.. was almost crying when i told him.. but he told me it doesn't bother him.
Sep1092 ~ you are the pig here. you obviously don't have a clue about the female body. next time you're intimate with a girl i hope she farts, purely so you can leave her. even better, i hope she takes a dump on your face. you don't deserve the love of a woman.
