My girlfriend kissed me, rolled over, and turned out the bedroom lights after we got ready for bed one night.
A minute later, though, the silence was broken by an unmistakable sound.
Jane had made a fart. We'd been dating for two years, and this was the first time I'd heard anything from her behind.
While most people would have been horrified (she was embarrassed), I couldn't have been more relieved.
Few things between men and women are truly taboo these days; one of them is passing gas.
We seem hell-bent on pretending that women don't have this basic bodily function, whether we're too polite.
