It’s going to happen eventually. Don’t believe a person who says they never have (or never will) break wind in front of their partner. These people obviously cannot be trusted or have any sense of humour! So, is it okay to fart in front of your partner? What’s big deal? We all do it, right? We’re supposed to do it…right?
Well, in a recent Deadspin article, columnist Drew Magary is asked if “the bathroom is a safe space to fart” in front of your significant other. It sure is, he argues, before going a step further: “The whole POINT of being in a relationship is to fart with impunity,” Magary writes. “What are you gonna do, spend your whole marriage worried that your spouse is gonna leave you if you fart? Only freaks think that way. This isn’t Victorian England. You’re allowed to be human around the people you love. I say let it rip.”
So there you have it! Someone who writes on the internet says you would be crazy NOT to fart in front of your S.O.! Take it however you will, but know that you are supported in whatever decision you make. But who wants to suffer from years of cramps from holding your farts in?
