Couples Therapy 01 – Bowel Movements


Life Boss says:

As much as relationships are about sharing special moments and experiences with each other, there should be boundaries especially when we travel. A line needs to be drawn between intimate details that should be shared and particulars that are TMI. And that line should be clearly marked when it comes to bowel movements or any type of gas emission from the rear or otherwise.

No, I do not need to know about number of number 2’s you’ve done in a day. Nor the volume, texture and colour of the goods emitted. Or the fact that you saw pieces of corn in your excrement which prompted you to investigate (i.e. Google) which in turn led you to only to discover that the human body cannot digest corn (although that was actually an interesting fact).

Flatulence is not an achievement either and does not warrant the cheeky grin that comes with it.

So let’s bring back the boundaries

Choi says:

My dear. Farting is part of life. And its no different when we travel.

“Passing wind is normal, but the amount varies between individuals and depends on a number of factors including diet. Some people pass wind only a handful of times per day, others up to 40 times, while the average seems to be about 15. Symptoms of excessive (or embarrassing) flatulence include:

  • passing wind often
  • smelly flatus
  • loud flatus
  • abdominal distension and discomfort
  • rumblings in the lower abdomen.” – Credits to this site

I was under the impression you will be concerned about my well-being, and as such it should delight you that I have normal farting patterns, and that I shit.

My question is….do you fart. and do you shit during vacations?

And I don’t know what you are talking about in regards to the corn thing. Sounds disgusting.



  1. I had the same conversation with my husband but I was the Man. He told me there should be boundaries in relationship. Conversations like this would take away the romance for him while I thought it was getting to know him better. At least I know he is healthy. Hahaha.

  2. Haha! I say: she should just give into it. No amount of protest will change him and once you travel long-term together, even she will start talking about poop – at least I did. 😜
