Imagine you're in the middle of a wild sex session with your partner and with the heat and passion, there comes a little fart like noise. What just happened? You don't have to worry, you just queefed. Queefing is the release of a trapped pocket of air, pushed out of your vagina. Your vagina is a coiled tube and not a straight one, so it's natural to get air trapped in there! So, in short, it's NOT embarrassing - it's natural.
Usually called as the 'vagina farts', these are really not farts. They have nothing to do with fermentation or gasses. When air enters an enclosed space, it needs to come out. Since the enclosure is tiny, the air comes out with noise. Just like a musical instrument. Sounds simple, doesn't it?
2. It's odourless
Since they're nothing like farts or gasses, they're absolutely odourless. It is the air that comes out of your vagina and not your rectum.
3. It happens when...
It happens to every woman while having sex. While you're aroused, your vagina expands and contracts, which creates suction. However, sometimes, it also happens while people fo crunches or leg raises.
4. It's not a reason to worry
Queefing is an absolutely natural phenomenon and there is nothing to worry about it at all. If you're overthinking it, please don't.
5. How can you handle when it happens?
While there is not much you can do to avoid queefing, you can certainly talk to your partner about it. However, it is something that can be laughed off or ignored since it is happens to most women.
6. What positions can make you queef more?
Certain positions definitely make you queef more. Especially the doggy style where the partner tends to push more air into your vaginal canal. However, every vagina is different and it totally depends on the person and how you are having sex.
7. Is it unhealthy?
Like we said, queefing is absolutely natural and since it happens due to air suction, there is nothing unnatural about it.
