Sleeping as a naked couple it may be a worse idea than you thought. We already know that if a person has a penis, it is important that they take care of their testicles because a torsion could occur. Testicular torsions are true medical emergencies and if they are not treated in time, with surgery included in many cases, the testicles can be lost. But we are not going to talk about this topic again. Then, What is the reason why sleeping naked as a couple is not suitable? The answer and the main reason to wear underwear when sleeping with another person is farts.
Many couples take advantage of when they go to sleep in bed to do so without clothes; But maybe it’s time you started thinking about wearing some underwear. And it is that a day a person can get to throw between 15 and 25 farts; so during the night flatulence also occurs. Unfortunately, it is not the air that comes out of the ass that is the problem, as the plastic surgeon explains in a TikTok video Anthony Youn. The problem is that it is usually loaded with poop particles and that is, to say the least, unsanitary. But, in addition, it is also a bit disgusting when you stop to think about it.
Underwear, the best weapon against farts
No need to be afraid of night farts, they are something natural and of which we do not have to be ashamed. In fact, we have already discussed that it is normal to have more gases when we travel by plane. But let’s go back to the subject of sleeping as a couple: as the doctor points out in his video we have ways to avoid spraying fecal matter on the person we love (or with which we are only sharing one night). The best weapon to fight against farts loaded with fecal particles – they always are – is the underwear.
“A scientific study showed that every time you expel gas you are spraying a small amount of fecal material”
Anthony Youn, Plastic Surgeon
“A scientific study showed that every time you pass gas you are spraying a small amount of stool. Even if it is not a real fart,” says the plastic surgeon. “The same study proved that your tight underpants will catch all these particlesYoun added.
An Australian doctor’s experiment
The advice of the plastic surgeon is very practical; since it does not matter if your fart is a lady flatulence or just a breath that escapes from your cheeks. Like it or not, fecal matter is beyond your control when it comes to farting. In fact, although there are few studies about whether clothing prevents the passage of fecal matter when leaving with a fart, there is one that is quite curious and that is explained in IFL Science.
When one of his nurses was in doubt, an Australian doctor designed a small (and interesting) experiment to know if farting in an operating room made the room less sterile. For this they decided to use two petri dishes, they explained in 2001 in the scientific journal BMJ. Someone farted without wearing underwear in one of them and, in the other, they did the same, but with pants. The result? Two types of bacteria grew on the first plate; while in the second no. However, the bacteria that grew are those that we consider good for our intestines and skin; so there is nothing to worry about. But it’s still grossas they are accompanied by other poop particles.
Avoid spraying your partner with fecal matter and put on some underwear to sleep. Underpants or panties, it doesn’t matter; But follow this advice from Dr. Youn to keep others away from your stool. In the end, everyone who shares a bed will win. And probably happier.
