Farting in front of your partner is a big step in a relationship. It might even be the biggest step in a relationship. Most people will have sex with their partner before they would ever fart in front of them.
According to author of family psychology Leah DeCesare, “Farting in front of your husband is a way of demonstrating your closeness and your intimate connection. Besides, farts are just plain funny. Couples who fart together, laugh together, and if you can laugh together, you’ve got the stuff of a great relationship.”
Leah’s husband remembered fondly the first time she farted in front of him, “I loved that you let me into a different personal space. When you have to hold it in, it hurts, and when you’re sharing your life with someone, share it all. You don’t want it to hurt.”
Men and women fart about the same amount every day — almost half a liter of gas. It’s natural and healthy. So make sure to fart in front of your partner and your love will last forever.
As DeCesare says, “Couples who fart together, laugh together, and if you can laugh together, you’ve got the stuff of a great relationship.” Or as my grandmother used to say, ” Better to fart and bear the shame then not to fart and bear the pain”.
