I'm sure most of us have gone through that stage in a relationship where you try everything you can to avoid scaring your significant other away.
Showering every day, wearing cologne or perfume, and, most importantly, holding your flatulence back so they don't hear or smell it. You don't want to disgust them and drive them away, do you?
When my wife and I were dating, we went through that phase, and she even asked me to let one rip in front of her. I suppose that would demonstrate to her that I trusted her in some way. What are the chances?
But I can tell you one thing for certain now. I bet you that she is regretting that request today after being together for 17 years and 15 years of marriage.
I recently learned about someone else who went through this too. A Brazilian singer by the name of Viviane de Queiroz Pereira, who goes by the stage name of Pocah, did this very same thing in front of her boyfriend to her own detriment.
Pocah was too embarrassed to let one rip in front of her boyfriend so she just held them in. What resulted from doing so is even more embarrassing than if she would have just let it go.
The singer had to be admitted to the hospital for what she thought was kidney problems or appendicitis. But it was neither.
Her diagnosis was...trapped gas from holding in her toots for too long.
Wonder if her music stinks? https://t.co/poyGqk3JgG

Here is what she had to say about this whole thing:
“Girls, don’t be ashamed to fart in front of your guy. Because what’s really embarrassing is not letting your guy sleep because you’re in discomfort, going to the hospital with your guy, and the diagnosis being ‘trapped farts.’ From now on, I’m letting them rip, guys. I’m medicated and I’m fine.”
