We all want to be seen as perfect when we first start dating someone. People get very squeamish and offended by normal bodily functions; it is a sign of acceptance if your partner doesn't find you less attractive just because you burp or pee.
My husband and I do almost everything around each other, except #2. If one of us really needs to pee and the other is in the bathroom, we will just get it done. This is a rare occurence as we like to keep some of the romance in our marriage. I do not shave, floss or pop pimples around my husband either.
What about you? Do you often hide bodily functions or are you open about them? Why or why not?
We don't do anything potty-related in front of each other. People need and deserve their privacy when doing that, I think. It's just courtesy.
Ditto. H and I are both this way.
I do take care of his wayward eyebrows though, he has a couple of crazy hairs that emerge and go wild. His hairstylist offered to take care of them years back and gave them a quick snip. Well, nothing wrong with that, but I swooped in on them next time they sprung out and claimed those crazy hairs for me to be taking care of.
If I did fart (not that I do)... I can't contain my laughter. I'm mature like that. I just straight away start giggling, and he just looks at me "Oh, you didn't!" It becomes a ridiculous song and dance but it's all in fun. If either of us burps, it's not a big deal but we do say "excuse me" to one another.
yeah... no way... I dont want to smell or hear someone else's body functions, and I afford them the same courtesy. Accidents happen, so no big deal, and if someone is sick, you take care of them. sitting down on the throne and taking a loud dump while your spouse is say, brushing their teeth... not gonna happen.
I did cause her to fart one time during an intense orgasm. yes, it came from there, not the Vjayjay. kind of a badge of honor, that one.
I know your question was for Lady... but figured I'd chime in again. "Why not?" I said to myself. I put makeup on in front of him but I prefer if he's not around when I pull my tweezers out and lean close to the mirror lol but no biggie.
Now gas, what bugs me is he thinks just because it happened 5mins ago before I was in the room that that means by the time I enter the room, he doesn't need to give me warning and *whap* I walk straight into it. "Just tell me you farted before I walk into it!" He says "But it was ages ago!" ends up in laughter though.
We bought a house with TWO toilets for that reason. In the apartment it was not so private. We never have pooped in front of the other, but when one was in there (we had stomach flu) and the other was banging on the door, it left much to be desired
We fart and it's no big deal. Never in the moments of romance though. I try to hide it but....when I had IBS, if I left the room every time I had to fart, he'd never have seen me! Now, since surgery and gluten free, I'm hardly gassy But he is! OMG! And I don't care at all. Our daughter (3 year old) announces it anyway even if I sneak away or Hubs sneaks away to fart. "MOMMY FARTED! A BIG ONE!" Thanks, kid.
Burping is inevitable. I don't burp much but I did with IBS (just a ball of gas, I was!!) Hubs drinks his beer and burps. Oh well.
But when we have to poop, we just excuse ourselves...no questions. Although, i've walked into the bathroom after Hubs was in there, not suspecting anything and HOLY CRAP! I gasp as he walks away giggling. Nice.
Grooming is done in private, mostly because we get ready at different times and in different bathrooms.
We are humans here. As I've typed this, Hubs has burped twice and i laughed, telling him what I'm writing about and he said, "You don't like my mating call?"
When I do expel gas (from either end), Hubs will get this goofy look on his face and in a goofy voice he'll say, "Oh yea....let's do it...now!"
I remember the first time he farted around me. It was when i was newly pregnant and we hadn't done anything more than burp...I got into bed...and the bed was shaking. The blankets were pulled tight and I was like, GIMME SOME BLANKET! And he just busted up (the shaking was from his giggling) and said, "Um...I farted." OMG. Yes he did. It punched me in the face.
Thank god I'm immature and just cracked up too
When I was giving birth, i farted the longest and loudest fart ever. I think everyone on the floor heard it. I didn't even care! It felt so good. But I get a pass for that one. I was pushing a human out of my body. I win.
Whenever the blankets are wrapped tight, I ask him if I need warning before getting into bed. Sometimes it's just the way the blankets are lol. He won't verbally warn me. Drives me nuts! We're not that gassy in general... good point you made about gluten free though. Diet can make a big difference.
Location: On a clear day, I can see Mt. Rainier ... but you can't count on the days to be clear here ...
Re: Bodily Functions In Front of Spouse?
We groom each other like monkeys. Clean ears, whatever. It's not a problem.
We don't really try to hide going to the bathroom, but you mentioned #2 ... well, we close the door and turn on the vent fan, but if she thinks of something she needs to talk about, she walks in on me ... then makes a face (well what did you THINK was happening in here?). It's one time when we don't just sit and talk because ... as much as we think of each other, we've each discovered the other's **** really does stink ...
There is one other thing she does, and I honestly don't know how. It doesn't matter how long I wait, it seems any time I'm away from home, like at work, when I go to the bathroom, THAT'S when she calls. It's almost never-fail ... and one of our daughters has inherited her impeccable timing. I don't answer in a public toilet, though - there are always things going on in there that nobody else needs to hear.
Yea, our 3 year old has a poop radar. We sneak away for some time and within 5 seconds she's pounding on the door..."YOU MAKIN' POOP? YOU DOIN' IT!? YAY!! SO PROUD OF YOU!"
Once, Hubs forgot to lock the door and she bust in on him while he was sitting there and all I heard was, "HEY! What are you doing in here! Get out! get out!" and she said, "Daddy, you are so smelly. Goodbye."
