    Red face Farting, Yes we all do it!

    But how discreet are you with it?

    This may seem like a weird topic and it is But i'm wondering why this natural occurence is such tabboo.
    I know it doesen't smell nice and its coming from that area but should we be so reserved about it? (If thats the correct word)
    I havent really heard any of my long time friends doing it, Male or female, Not that its nessecary.
    But people aren't really as shy with belching, While the smell is on average i think less bad and it makes a diffrent noise isn't it just as bad?

    How do you handle it? Are you the person that just lets one rip whenever wherever and whoever is near should just get away if it bothers them.
    Or do you walk away to some place where you're alone or go to the toilet and deal with it there?
    Or does it depend on who you're with? Like you not minding your little brother or sister being around, But when its your girlfriend/boyfriend you would never?

    Because it's not fun when other people smell you from a distance? There is no taboo around it as far as I know, I live in Belgium

    Because when you fart you are basically spraying faecal matter into the air. When you smell a fart, you're actually breathing in poo-particles. Sure, there's other nasty stuff in the air, but if you can hold it in around other people then it's less rude and not too bad.

    I still do it around people I know well, such as family and friends.

    Mostly very discreet. The moment you hear me fart you'll know you're in my innermost trusted circle of bloodbrothers and sisters. It's more exclusive than the Illuminati.

    Around family = Fart normally
    Around guy friends = try to make farts as loud as possible
    Around girl friends = Silence the farts
    At the bars/parties = Fart in the bathroom when I'm taking a piss
    If I see someone else fart = Don't care at all

    "Yes we all do it!"

    sorry but no you are wrong because I can't remember the last time I did it. I'm dead serious, I do not fart.

    and if you have to do it, go away. go outside. whatever. dont make the rest of the people smell your disgusting farts.

    That's just not true. Or if it is, you have some very serious health problems and should rush to the hospital.
    Though most likely answer is that you fart like a bovine in your sleep.

    Maybe I should also point out that I'm a female, aka no farting contests lol.

    I don't know why but I just can't do it but I don't care, better this way anyway, it's a gift! o.O

    But I love how he created a non existent stereotype... People fart on the streets everywhere, where ever the "accident" happens. There's no country limitation.
    Apparently, it doesn't matter where you are people try to avoid that slip in public, and rather wait for a more fitting place.

    I long to be a part of a group so prestigious. One can dream...


    OT: With my guy friends and sister, I'm pretty open about it. With other women or men I don't know I'll try to be discreet or hold it in.
