to think my husband should break wind a BIT more discreetly
fber · 07/06/2013 09:00
DH breaks wind every time he goes for a wee REALLY loudly, and at other times too. I'm not talking a bit of a parp, I'm talking thunderpants. I have my own bodily functions and can fart with the best of them, but somehow I manage not to rattle the house each and every time I do it.
At best it's an irritation, but the worst of it is, it's totally turning me off him. He goes for a wee at night before bed, and, well, sex is the last thing on my mind after I've heard him blowing off.
I'm aware that lots of things that I do must irritate him, so, AIBU?

Oh I'm sorry but I just cracked up at your "after I've heard him blowing off" comment!
My dad does this actually and it's really embarrassing when he comes to stay as we can all hear him 1st thing in the morning!
I'm not sure what the solution is other than some serious clenching but YANBU!

I am also childishly sniggering at 'sex is the last thing on my mind after hearing him blowing off' .
I think that to be fair he is being a little thoughtless.Farts are hilarious but a bit of a passion killer at the wrong moment.
Perhaps he'll take the hint if you drop your guts in the loo before bed when he has a twinkle in his eye.

Haha I thought I was BU by asking dh to get the air freshener out after some of his particularly nasty efforts, but this is taking it to a whole new level! If it was at the dinner table or in company I'd understand but I'm not sure it's reasonable to complain about someone tooting in their own bathroom!
Perhaps I'm just sympathetic as an IBS sufferer though. . . .

Barmix - same here. I get texts sometimes of his bathroom achievements
at mrsJay DH too.
People are laughing OP but I'm with you. It happens in our house all of the time; it is a passion killer when he makes a big song and dance about his farts but I do try and brush it under the carpet. There are far worse things as a partner he could be doing. At the same time, I wish he could control his pumps more - even our dd replies with a raspberry noise when we ask what daddy does

you are so NBU...
It is such a turn off. Why do men think it's clever/funny/worth sharing/ interesting/ competitive/ ....
Mine used to do it constantly and it took a lot of saying "Look, I really don't like this, it's rude, inconsiderate. pls go outside, ... blah blah.
I get that loads of people think it's funny but actually I think it's just lack of respect. ok I'm an old fart (ha ha) but really, it's just not sexy

I knew my first marriage was doomed when, during our honeymoon, my DH came out of the bathroom and said (as I sprwled attractively on a four poster bed) 'it's not all come out yet' (bleah!). Second husband farts, but so long as he does it in another room, I don't mind the sound, it's when he does the SBD near me that we have issues - the issues being that I literally heave, and have been known to throw up. I think farting in one's own bathroom is fine, but commenting on it afterwards is a little uncouth :)
