Have You Ever Had A Fart Travel Upward Through Your Vagina? You’re Not Alone
“Do you ever fart and the fart goes past your vagina and your labia moves?” So goes the question of the month on /r/TwoXChromosomes, which is precious and fantastic. The unanimous answer seems to be yes, but Broadly decided to take an even deeper dive and check out the science behind varts. (Apparently streptococcus can be spread through farts?)
Debby Herbenick of the Kinsey Institute says there’s nothing to fear about varts: “It’s nothing I can think of research related to either for or against. The body is cool/interesting/funny and the more we all accept our bodies and their sights and sounds and smells, and yes, fart movements too, the more relaxed we will be.”
May I point out a huge oversight on everyone’s part and point out that this phenomenon does result in broken hearts when it happens during your period? You’ve had a period vart, yes? Maybe this is only a problem for people who opt to use pads instead of tampons, but if you want a surefire awkward period stain, vart away while you’re menstruating.
I know that 43 percent of our readership is male, so if any of you dudes got past the headline and to the fourth paragraph, you’re welcome!
