This morning, on The Rob's Radio Show with Kat Mykals, we talked about... flatulence. Should couples be comfortable enough to "let loose" in front of each other or is it best to leave a little mystery between the sexes?


FREE the FLATULENCE! Here's the thing... It is a normal bodily function. I'm not saying that you should be walking around the house forcing them out, but if your significant other lets one slip, don't embarrass or shame them for it. Odds are, they didn't mean to do it in the first place. Personally, I'll be honest... farts are funny. Don't make it such a big deal. Relax and laugh it off. Your SO will thank you!


When it comes to passing gas around your significant other, I think it's best to keep it to a minimum. Every now and then is fine, and I honestly don't mind if he does it around me. But I can't help feeling like if I were to get into the habit of doing gross things like that, eventually, I'm going to become less attractive to him. He already has to deal with enough of me on a daily basis. There is no reason for me to make it any smellier than it needs to be. I just think it's best to keep somethings a mystery in a relationship.

Don't get me wrong, "a little mystery" is a good thing... But when it comes to being comfortable with your significant other and flatulence, I don't feel the pressure, nor do impose the pressure to keep your gas in. I'd much rather my girlfriend fill the room with her aroma than sit around uncomfortable keeping her gas in... It's a fart. And to be honest, it's still funny to me. When you decide to spend your life with somebody, sights, sounds, and smells are going to happen. I'd rather embrace and enjoy them than make somebody or myself feel shame for them.
