A Classy Question- The Need for Relief
So I feel that I might get a bit of crap for this topic but as, the dating and relationship columnist, this is a topic that can not go undiscussed.
Bodily functions. Farts. Burps. All of it.
This is the one topic I’ve heard the most varied responses on. When is it okay to “relieve” yourself in front of a significant other? It’s not classy. We shouldn’t do it. But if you spend all your time with someone- the need will happen at some point!
Some say right away- if you are going to be open and share yourself, might as well share it all right?
Some people say never. Never?!? I know one woman who has never made wind in front of her husband. Personally, I don’t understand how that is possible.
I had a friend who will not be named who once held her need to pass gas because she was with a gentelman so long she ended up doubled over in terrible cramping pain. But maybe we could just chalk that up to gastrointestinal problems.
And then there are always the accidents-the one that got got away. Personally I think if you’re going to break the ice on breaking wind, the accidental fart is the best beginning. Just laugh about it.
I’ve heard from some men a rumor that women don’t have bodily functions, (they must have only dated the girls doubled over in pain), but we do. We must break this horrendous rumor! But how so?
So what do you think? When if ever is it appropriate to handle bodily functions in front of an other? It might be a matter of health but its also a matter of dignity.
So as uncomfortable as some of us may be… let’s talk.
Happy Thursday y’all!
