There are many mysteries in the world that we often ponder about. What’s the meaning of life? Do girls fart? You know the type. Let’s debunk a few! 

do girls fart

There’s a lot of truth to the idea that mysteries are sexy. The whole ‘don’t reveal too much too soon’ adage is true. If you give everything away too soon, you lose your allure! There are countless mysterious things in the world that hold our attention; they range from the unexplainable to the quirky. For instance, do girls fart, and what is the point of algebra or geometry. You know the score.

When it comes to women, in particular, many mysteries run amok.

This is partly done on purpose – after all, men are fascinated by everything to do with the female body so why not keep them guessing a little more?

But, when you demystify a few of those mysterious subjects, they tend to lose their shine. When you know the truth, they’re just not as exciting anymore, right?

So, whether you want to know the truth or not, we’re going to break a few mysteries here, but it’s up to you who you share it with!

Why do women hide certain aspects of their lives?

Believe it or not, most men wonder ‘do girls fart?’ You’re probably wondering why you even need to ask if this is the case, because we’re all human, right?

But, men can’t help wondering about this because we like to keep certain unappealing traits hidden from any male suitor. So, the fact they don’t hear it or smell it means they wonder if it actually happens at all!

Insecurities, awkwardness, and disgust are the main reasons we don’t let loose and show you every nasty bit of our true selves. Other reasons involve societal expectations for women to be proper and pure.

But, let’s be honest here. We’re human beings and sometimes that means we’re all a little disgusting. If a guy is going to love you, he should love you for your slightly disgusting side too! [Read: Celebrate being a girl! 18 reasons it’s great to be female]

Do girls fart and other female mysteries made clear

I’m sure girls everywhere aren’t too happy that we’re sharing all of their best-kept secrets. But we’ll share anyway! It’s about damn time the world knew the truth and stopped viewing women as some untouchable, pristine species.

Now it’s time for you to know what women are really like behind closed doors and in the confines of our own homes.

Here are all the answers to your mysterious questions about women. It’s time to demystify this fascinating gender and embrace everything – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the occasionally smelly! [Read: 8 unladylike things that most men love about women]

1. Do girls far? Yes, we do

We’re human, aren’t we? So yes, we fart. How else would we release pent-up gas from our intestines that just so happens to make its way to our rear end?

Although we don’t usually do this around guys, because farting has been seen as improper and downright gross, we certainly do this home alone. 

After we’ve known you for a good while and we feel comfortable, we might attempt to do this on the quiet when you’re around – but only if we’re sure you can’t hear! [Read: The art of farting in public without being noticed]

2. We even go number two!

Contrary to what Kim Kardashian would like the world to believe about her, she does in fact take a poop every once in a while.

Hopefully, every single day because that’s what healthy human beings do!

And since women are actual human beings, we have to do this in order to survive. We’re very sorry if this bursts your bubble, and no, it doesn’t smell like roses either. This is up there with the ‘do girls fart’ question – it’s very commonly asked! [Read: The girl’s guide to doing a number two in their boyfriend’s place]

3. We get hairy

In the winter, some women go weeks without shaving if they’re single – many of us do! It’s true that some women can’t stand a slight bit of hair and they grab the razor whenever they see one or two, but for the most part, women embrace their hairy selves if they know nobody is going to take a glance.

And, why not? This is how nature intended us to be.

It’s also true that many ladies hate shaving, and if we can make it without shaving, then we do. This leads to us looking a lot hairier than you might suspect us to be. [Read: Trim, shave, or natural – The real score on the bush]

4. We pee in the shower

What is the point of turning the shower on and then sitting on the toilet to pee before getting into it? It all goes down the drain just the same.

We’re not sure why this one stayed a mystery because most of us honestly couldn’t care less if guys pee in the shower. They do it, too. [Read: 80 really funny “would your rather” questions to ask your SO]

5. Yes, we do pee in the sea

The same goes for the sea. Let’s be honest, you’re in the sea, you need to go, but you’re surrounded by water. Why not just let it go. If you’re not sure, take a look at the woman standing in the sea looking very concentrated – the chances are she’s peeing and she’s trying to look like she’s not.

We can tell you now – there are very few women who will get out of the sea, grab a towel, dry off, and go to the toilet, to then get back in the water.

6. We don’t wash our hair every day

And if we can go weeks without doing so, you bet we will! Braids and ponytails were invented for a reason, and we’re assuming nasty, greasy hair had something to do with it. This is what dry shampoo was invented for and it’s a true lifesaver, for sure.

Washing long or even short hair takes so much time and effort, and we’re lazy creatures by nature. So you can imagine why we wouldn’t want to hold our hands above our heads for minutes on end just to wash out some stuff that’s not actually that harmful. Natural oils are there for a reason and all that styling afterward? Far too much time wasted! [Read: Girls with short hair are killing it – 20 reasons you should try it]

7. We can get really sweaty

We’re not just talking about in the gym either. Sure, we can work up a sweat while working off the burger we ate the night before, but we can also get super gross-sweaty by just sitting around in all our glory on a hot day.

But, perspiration as we prefer to call it, is there for a reason. It’s your body’s way of cooling you down when you’re overheating a little. So, if we don’t sweat, we don’t survive. Suck it up.

8. We don’t always smell like roses and vanilla cupcakes

Thanks to the lovely little sweatiness happening from time to time, we don’t always smell good.

In fact, girls own so much perfume because we don’t usually smell that great. Not to mention we don’t even shower every day, which only adds to the stench.

While not that many women are likely to get to the point where they can smell themselves, don’t expect every girl you meet to smell like freshly baked cookies. [Read: 15 things women wish men knew about the female body]

9. We can let out a burp that would put your worst one to shame

Most of us have been raised to hold our burps in or only let them out silently, but if a girl has the house to herself and just devoured a delicious meal, she will let one of the worst burps out you’ve ever heard. And believe us, you will feel inadequate in comparison. [Read: 15 fun, weird, and intimate things to do as a couple]

10. We’ve been known to pick our noses

We don’t mean we do this for fun or to gross out our little siblings, but we do actually have to at times. Picking a nose isn’t just for guys to do.

If we have something stuck up there that no tissue can force out, there’s only one other thing we can do. Sometimes you just gotta do what you’ve gotta do. The patterns are emerging here, aren’t they? Do girls fart? Yes. Do girls pick their noses? Yes. We’re human!

11. We hardly ever wash our bras

For something spending all of its time strapped snuggly to our bodies, you’d think we’d wash them a lot more often than we do. However, we can go weeks without washing them—especially if it’s our favorite bra, and we just can’t part with it for as long as it takes to wash. Ladies, how often do you wash your bras?

12. We masturbate

Hello! Sometimes we’re single for a ridiculously long amount of time. And you’d be crazy if you think we’re going to go a year or more without getting some in one form or another.

So yes, we have to help ourselves out every once in a while or we’ll be driven insane by our sexual frustration. Besides, masturbation is healthy and fun.

But we don’t just do it only when we’re single either. We could be in a completely happy and healthy relationship and still do this. I mean, guys do it all the time, so why is it such a surprise that girls do? [Read: Female masturbation – 17 facts about the naughty secret]

13. We watch porn

This is probably the biggest shock to most guys. They assume that girls just never watch porn but you’d be surprised at the number of girls that do. There are even titles made by women for women these days!

So, if you’re asking the question then yes; although, you might not get that answer from many girls you ask. We’re too embarrassed to admit we like to watch two people getting it on just as much as you do. Most guys wonder this as much as they wonder do girls fart! [Read: 10 reasons why women don’t admit to watching porn]

14. We dance around completely naked sometimes

Post-shower, pre-shower, just because we’re sick of clothes and a good song comes on. We will almost always find a reason to dance around naked, and then check ourselves out in any and all available mirrors in the house.

And why shouldn’t we? The female body is beautiful in all its forms and you’re not the only ones that want to admire it.

15. We talk about sex with our friends

If you’ve ever wondered if your girlfriend has ever gone to her friend and chatted about the sex you two are having, the answer is yes.

She definitely informed her friend about almost everything involved in her sex life. Girls also love to point out really hot guys and wonder how good they are in bed.

We know that you’ve wondered about this, just as you’ve wondered do girls fart. The answer is ‘yes’ to both. [Read: 23 things girls wish guys knew about a girl’s mind]

16. We stuff our faces with the junkiest food we can find and nobody cares

We love stuffing our faces with junk food and would actually much rather order a burger when we’re on a date than a salad.

But we order the salad because it’s “ladylike,” and we want you to think we’re adorable. The truth is, we love junk food occasionally just as much as you do and there is no rule to say that we shouldn’t eat it just because we’re supposed to be all “dainty-like.” Ladies, you eat that burger with pride!

Girls aren’t actually as mysterious as you think. Do girls fart? Yes, we do. Do we poop? Oh yes. We’re actually just like guys except we have vaginas. And this list has thoroughly demystified a girl’s mysterious nature!
