  • My DH believes after 8 years that women don't poo. For some reason, whether I am stuck in one Freud's psycosexual stages, I am very sneaky when I go and wait until Mr Always is out of the house, mad isn't it. I don't know whether I am being ladylike or a complete psycho :D

    I used to be like this when me and my OH first moved in, or when he would come and stay with me for a few days before that. The bedroom was right next to the bathroom, and his desk was right next to the ajoining wall. I realised that we were going to be living together for many many years (hopefully), and trying to be sneaky was going to be impossible for all of that time! So now I just tell myself that the bathroom has some sort of magical soundproofing to make myself feel less embarassed.
    Didn't Gino DiCampo say that he would hate to ever hear his wife fart in front of him. Things must be difficult for her then, if she isn't even allowed to fart near him. She'd farted twice near him or something since they'd been together. I think I#d rather tolerate someone fart in front of me than guzzle a big rat. Bleeeuch.

    I have never audibly farted in front of my OH, and we've been together for about 2 and a half years (apart from when I was asleep and couldn't help it, but even that is totally cringeworthy!) I either just hold it in until he goes to the bathroom or is out of the room, or do it so he can't hear. I wouldn't feel very classy letting it out then going 'oof, that was a good one!' like men seem to!

    My partner would just laugh if I did it, he's extremely down to earth, but I'd still be embarrassed.

    I did it in my sleep once (or twice, or...), and it woke me up! He was still awake...thankfully, he was too much of a gent to comment, knowing how embarrassed I'd be, but I did hear him giggling very quietly to himself :rotfl:

    How bizarre! I can often go 3-4 times a day depending on what I've been eating and how stressed I am. I'm certainly not afraid to go at work, after all I'd be feeling rather crap, pardon the pun, if I didn't!

    LOL, I was mortified the first time I farted in front of my OH. Now though after almost 5 years together we have farting contests most nights!

    I'm not a man and I read on the loo - in fact, I have even put a magazine rack in there! :o

    Presumably, this would be out of the question too then?

  • Apparently with some homosexual men who have sex in public toilets there's a custom called brown paper bagging, where one man stands in the brown paper bag so if security come around and look under the door all they see is one pair of feet and a brown paper bag.

    Now to overcome this what they've done in the USA in some areas is reduced the height of the toilet door to about head level. So not only is all noises more louder, you can see the people who's made them. Just be thankful ladies they don't do this in your toilets!
  • Seriously though, why are poo noises worse than wee noises?
