This is really embarrassing but when my boyfriend and I have sex i tend to fart.. a lot. I don't know if it bothers him because he hasnt said anything but i hate it. Am I alone on this one and is there anything I can do to stop it?

You're not alone on this at all; intercoruse can put pressure on your bowels, and as well as the position you're in may just be causing your body to release the gas. Trying some different positions could be a way to get around it, other than that I'm not sure of anything else that could help, but someone may be able to.

Does it happen at other times, when you're not having sex? Your stomach might be sensitive to certain foods... if that's the case, avoid whatever makes you gassy, or invest in some beano or gas-x.

if he hasn't said anything he
a. hasn't noticed
b. doesn't care
and if he says something about it some day, just use a little humor about the situation.

Are you sure you are farting or do you just hear the sound? Something that may be happening to you is 'queefing', the term used to describe what happens when air is pushed into the vagina and then pushed back out again (very common during sex because thrusting = air going in. the vagina is not an endless canal, so the air's gotta come out somehow).

It sounds exactly like farting, but it's just air going in and out. Another part of the joy of sex.

disconnect and let me drift/until my upside down is right side *in*
