Farters on the Lot Unite!

I've been threatening to start a farting interest for some time now, and while I'm constrained in my sick bed seems a good time to start. So let me ask you first of all, do you specialise in LLRs (loud, long and reverberating) or SBDs (Silent but deadly)? Or are you in denial about your farting? Personally, I do more of the SBD variety. While the loud ones can be spectacular, the drawback is that you can't blame them on anyone else. So come on, admit it. What sort of farter are you?

Mostly little popcorn farts that don't smell much at all. However, my husband mostly does the SBD variety and has so much glee at clearing a whole room sometimes with the smell. And I still don't understand why he looks at me funny if I fart. He still believes that women aren't supposed to fart, just men. We are both human, we both eat and both have an AH, so, we both fart. DUH? lol

Hello, Annie. As you say - equal opportunities. My mother-in-law used to play hell when anyone farted, then she'd go to the bathroom and blow off so loud, it rattled all the doors downstairs. At least ladies don't offer up their best and then shove their wife's head under the duvet so they get full benefit, unlike some men I know!

hi sandra. i was practically a silent type. not until i came to meet my wife's family. they are all LLRs and there are times they seem to play games or will contest who farts the loudest. so, i join the games and since then, i became an LLR too.

Hello, Neil. How lovely to hear your story. The family that farts together, stays together. I can suggest another game. Get all family members in a small room and shut the doors and windows. Then have your contest. The person who manages to stay in the room the longest without his or her eyes watering is the winner.

We all know ladies don't fart and I'm a lady so I never fart. We have to expel gas but we do this by way of talking too much. I believe women who fart are too quiet so they don't release enough air through their mouths and need to fart to release the build up of pressure. Ladies tend to talk more so farting isn't necessary for us. My, what's that odour? I must have briefly became a mere woman for a second or two...

You've given a convincing argument for ladies not farting - and then done it anyway! Great stuff! I have to confess to usually being loud and proud, and I know I talk too much, so I must be the exception that proves your theory - either that, or I've blown it away! Please excuse the awful pun!

The awful pun is better than an awful fug! I think my theory could be true because I've taken to talking to myself and have since had no further unladylike moments. On the other hand I don't talk in my sleep so who knows what goes on when I'm slumbering.

Funny you should mention that. When my hubby and I were first together, he started telling me that I farted in my sleep. This was back when I hadn't yet farted in front of him, you see, still too shy. lol. So, I said, "how can I be held responsible for what I do in my sleep?"

hi when I am all alone'I can let her rip, but out in public I am more the SBD type and just hope there are enough others around that nobody knows where that came from. ewww. I am sure there are others here too but whether they are game enough to admit it is anyone's guess lol lol lol.

Hello, Hatley. Good to know you have control. As you say, we all do it, but not everyone will admit it. My mother in law used to play up something dreadful if anyone dropped one in her presence - especially me, as she said ladies didn't do that sort of thing, they left the room. Well, she used to leave the room, but it reverberated round the house, so I used to get my own back by saying, 'Could you hear us out there, because we all heard you loud and clear.' I wasn't her favourite daughter in law, as you can imagine!

Hello Sandra, hope your flu is getting better. Now spooky isn't it Sandra, we always have the same interests in common, know the same books, both fell for Mr Rochester at impressionable ages, so many things in common. So it's really spooky now that this type of humour interests me not in the slightest so I just can't join in in the fun, it's a bit like 'techinical' to me

Hello Thea. You're right - it's not just a question of letting rip, there are a lot of things to be considered, which could elevate farting into the 'technical' bracket. Never mind, can't win 'em all!
