To take pride in my stinky farts?

Ok, so I apologize for the TMI, but I have ALWAYS been a super smelly farter. It runs in my family. My mum has the stinkiest farts ever and so do me and my sister. I know it isn't an intolerance, and I do all the things that have been suggested to minimize it, but it's just the way I'm made.

When I was younger I was embarrassed by it, but then I decided that if I can't help it then I shouldn't be ashamed. So now I take pride in the fact that I can stink DH out of a room even though he's a big burly bloke and I'm little petite me. Even when he loads up on Guinness and pub food he can't compete with my stink. The best part is that mine are almost always silent so I will slip them out without him noticing and then laugh like crazy when it hits him.

So, I have to ask, is anyone else like this??

My DS would LOVE you!

I'll be in a minority here but can I be the first to say that you've made yourself sound utterly revolting?

Grim! biscuit

You are my DH. He is nearly 45 and has he fart attitude of a 4 year old!

If that's what floats your boat then go for it.

Personally I find it repulsive and don't find farts amusing at all.


Ar risk of being called po....I find that repulsive

Get off the computer DS, you're meant to be doing your homework

Nothing funny about farting and making others breathe it in. I honestly find it revolting and not funny at all.

Must also be a complete turn off for your husband even if he doesn't say anything. If my husband did this I'd leave him, I'd find it completely disrespectful.

What age ARE you?? hmm

You'd leave your husband for farting in your presence? Don't be ridiculous

I went to school with a girl like you.
<wonders if it might be you >
Anyway, stinky farts indicate your diet is not suitable for you.
I'd imagine your whole family is intolerant to something...

Erm, no.

I can't stand people doing smelly farts near me. Excuse yourself if you need to - I actually find it a bit violating. It's fine if it's an occasional accident and I don't mind loud ones at all but it would be serious issue for me if dh found it amusing - it would be disrespectful.

I'm all for bodily autonomy and not being ashamed of natural secretions and functions but your gratuitous pleasure in this is unreasonable and childish.

Hasn't there been a scientific report recently declaring that breathing in farts is in some ways a healthy thing?

Personally, i'd rather find other ways of improving my health than breathing in farts.
I guess this is only funny if your DH finds it funny. I find toilet humour pretty funny, but would be really pissy about someone farting at me. grin

Disgusting and not funny.

actually spat out tea laughing at happygirl leaving her husband over a fart.

aprilshowersbringmayflowers Thu 14-May-15 16:36:55

but what are you meant to do when you need to fart? you can't keep jumping up and running out of the room!
i reckon it's just how we're made, it's part of being an animal.

kellwells Thu 14-May-15 16:37:27

LOL, so maybe I ABU!

Just to clarify a few things:

Yes, I am an adult woman!

I don't always intentionally fart around DH, in fact I probably leave the room most of the time. When I purposefully do it around him it is more of a playful joking thing, or because he is doing something that annoys me.

I am also much more discreet in public or around anyone that is family or close friends. I really try not to be the rude person who lets them out in shop aisles, but there are occasions when I can't help it.

Floggingmolly Thu 14-May-15 16:38:05

Yes, that's a rare talent you've got there... hmm

U2TheEdge Thu 14-May-15 16:39:06

Are you 3?

I have a lot of wind with IBS. I have no problem farting around DH, but no, I wouldn't be proud of a smelly one. It happens sure but it is not something I would brag about or be proud of.

WorraLiberty Thu 14-May-15 16:40:00

So proud that you name changed?

Feminine Thu 14-May-15 16:41:21

I'd be so embarrassed to do that round my husband.
How long have you been married BTW?

U2TheEdge Thu 14-May-15 16:41:32

I don't leave the room every time as I do countless every hour. But if I think they are going to be smelly I would try to move away at least.

Really OP?

Not my sense of humour either, is it anyone's, really?
