Have you ever been having sex and you hear fart noises while thrusting into her. Some people call it pussy fart. Here are the facts about it.
Simply put, it is when air gets trapped in the vagina, then this air is dispelled by herself or through sex. Cosmopolitan spoke with Dr. Sheila Loanzon, a certified OB-GYN about this weird scenario especially if it is happening to you for the first time.
1. Queefing is just a slang, it’s what we call it asides from pussy fart which just basically gives it away. It’s not a medical word, the medical term for it is rather long. Doctors refer to it as “passage of air through vaginal canal”, Dr. Loanzon revealed. Now, you see why it was truncated into that weird Q word.
2. No cure for it. It is actually out of your hand, you cannot do a thing about it. Dr. Loanzon says, “If you try to contract the vaginal canal to prevent air from coming in, it can cause sex to be more painful,”. She also said “If anything, you could try to manage the amount of air going in by slowing down the speed of penetration and using less depth — not having sex hard and fast, jackhammer-style — but it's probably not that realistic in the heat of the moment.”
3. Like we said earlier, It’s not a fart. It is the passage of air through the vaginal canal. It happens when air is pushed out of the vagina from actions such as sexual penetration from a sex toy or a penis. Dr. Loanzon says it’s just a passage of air.
4. It’s not within your control queefs like you can control farts, it’s easier to control fart because the asshole is tighter. Dr. Loanzon explains, “The anal sphincter is much tighter and better toned than the vaginal tissue and therefore can be controlled,”. Further revealing why it is much more difficult, “It can contain passage of gas from the gastrointestinal tract, whereas you can't control your vaginal muscles as readily.”
5. That sound comes from the vibrations that occur at the labia majora, “The sound comes from the vibrations of the labia majora, which includes the vulva and vaginal lips.” She describes “It's similar to the sound of flatus, colloquially known as farting, or gas exiting from the rectum, which occurs when the butt cheeks flap together.”
6. Other body factors may also affect queefing possible, factors such as birth history. Women who have given birth to large babies may have large vaginal canals, which can take more air.
7. Other factors that can contribute to queefing is the sex positions being used. For example, doggy style makes women more prone to queefing than any other sex position. Also, if you change sexual positions too frequently is can also allow for air to be trapped inside the vagina.
8. You can also diffuse the situation when it happens, because it can be embarrassing. Just like when you when you bump into someone, Dr. Loanzon prescribes “Just say, ‘excuse me,’ and carry on. And maybe laugh, because that can release the tension. It’s very anatomic, so it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.”
9. Excessive usage of lubes can also cause queefs, delayed queefs as well. Dr. Loanzon reveals that if air bubbles are trapped inside the lube, a queef may happen when she is peeing after sex or even during the sex.
10. It isn’t just a sex thing, queefing can happen during other times too, things that have nothing to do with sex. Such as coughing, wearing underwear or jumping jacks, weird isn’t it? Dr. Loanzon explains that anything can cause air to be trapped in the vagina, and it can also be dispelled in other ways. “Some people also notice when they're wearing a thong, the labia gets trapped and air can get in that way too.
That's another reason why you shouldn't be embarrassed, because as it usually happens when you're either having sex, exercise, or wearing clothes, which means you're taking care of yourself in some way.”
