Queefing

Hello, everyone:

How are you?

I have a question pertaining to queefs and their causes. I recently started having sex with my boyfriend (~6 months ago). We've been together for a year, and he is my first, and he says I'm his first. I've been on Ortho Tri-cyclen for the past 5 months with a month break in between, so I've been on the pill for 2 months consistently.

There are certain positions that seem to cause me to queef, and quite loudly, I might add. And it was very shocking the first time I did it. Sometimes I can't seem to stop them. They keep coming out, and even while he is going down on me IN HIS FACE! He has been good about them, as in he laughs, but it dispels the mood. It just becomes comical, and I don't feel sexy anymore. But I get really embarrassed, because they are really loud, sound amazingly like farts, and are totally uncontrollable. Sometimes we just ignore them. While I looked up the term on Google, there isn't a lot of reliable information.

I know that air that is forced up into the vagina through hard and rigorous thrusting. The position that I tend to have most queefs is in the missionary position with my legs and thighs tilted upwards, so that he is holding my knees.

I also heard that if the vagina is really wet, it can produce more queefs. As well, I don't know if this is true, but if the vagina is shaped smaller/tighter/with bigger lips such that the air gets trapped more easily, queefs are more prone to happen. I ask, because according to women with post-op hysterectomies say they have more queefs, and their reasoning is it is a closed area with no venting for excess air? As well, I've heard the opposite, that is, looser vaginas cause more queefs.

Can anyone help and answer some of the above questions, or dispel myths about queefing? Thank you. Your input is much appreciated.

Oh my God, I have never heard the word "Queef" before and it is SO VERY EXCELLENT.

haha. Well, they're also known as "vaginal farts," but the term is inaccurate, because they don't smell like farts, but they DO sound like them. It's apparently caused by fresh air being forced into the vagina, which forms some sort of vacuum when the air is released.

Yeah, that happens to me sometimes and it tickles. I had no idea there was a name for it, other than "pussyfarts"!

I'm sorry, but your icon + the title of the post = me falling out of my chair laughing. =p

That makes me queef!
littlebluegrrl 7th-May-2007 02:17 am (UTC)
I queef a lot during doggystyle sex, especially if my chest is lower than my ass.
I also do it sometimes after sex, when I move, and it's so embarrassing! I hope someone has a good method to reduce it...I wanna know!

I find this post awfully amusing since today I queefed allover the place! The actual queefing wasn't as embarassing as the fact I had to wait a few moments to resume sex I was laughing so hard! I find that I queef a lot more when I let my boy cum in me or if we use lube.
silentsneaking 7th-May-2007 04:02 am (UTC)
It's no big deal. It happens to me all the time...it's just the compressed air coming out that built up during sex. I laugh, my girlfriend laughs when it happens, and we get on with it :)

I have wicked muscle control through my abs to my pelvic floor (thank you, pilates and kegels), which means I can queef at will. Terribly useful, right? It does mean that PIV sex lends itself to an awesome range of sensation, but it also means that I'm much more queefier than I might be otherwise: when my guy and I are fooling around and start going by instinct & impulse, my spazzy punani muscles sometimes tart a huffin' and a puffin' like a carnal whoopie-cushion. I've kidded with my boyfriend that, in Kama Sutra, it's called "milking the snake" (I can't actually remember if that's true or not, but I think it might be), but I don't always want my sex to be hilarious. The point I'm want to get at, however, is that queefing just seems to be part of PIV sex, and it can be frustratingly distracting at times (not to mention startling), but I think it's more worthwhile to make peace with the queefs rather than a) avoid pleasureable positions & practices because they make you prone to queefing or b) try to control your body throughout your sexual encounter to avoid queefs.

Theres not really much you can do to prevent it from happening.
It happening more in certain positions is completely natural as well seeing as different angles will allow air in more easily than others, depends on his penis length breadth shape etc and well as your vagina shape etc.

As for killing the mood try not to let it, humor should be a part of everyone sex lives as it makes it all the more of a comfortable act to do and to talk about as well.
auraesque 7th-May-2007 01:58 pm (UTC)
You can ask your boy not to pull out so far after he thrusts---that's another cause of them.

I think queefs are funny, and it is really hard to prevent them, so why not laugh? I'm glad your boy has been good about them. :)
oursadhearts 7th-May-2007 02:12 pm (UTC)
Laughing is the best remedy, I've found. My boy and I just fall apart laughing and then he says, "It's my fault! I pushed too much air in poor Cuntessa!" And he kisses me, we laugh a bit more, and get on with it.

Your guy sounds like a gentlemen. You're lucky to have such comedic relief in those situations! <3
carefully 3rd-Mar-2008 01:40 am (UTC)
I completely understand, comical is not comfortable. I could never understand why sluts like having sex so much (esp with strange men) wouldn't it be SO embarrassing to queef in front of a stranger? Especially during your first sexual encounter with that particular man, DREADFUL really.

You would think anyway since it's awkward enough when it happens with boyfriends. Maybe sluts don't queef because they are too loose? HAHA YEAH RIGHT. Highly unlikely, they probably just don't give a shit when they do. That must be why sex is so "good" with a slut. They ride or die, it's all or nothing baby LMAO!

Another thing, HOW COME I NEVER HEARD ANY QUEEFS IN PORNOS?? In all my adolescent years, I did not witness one single queef in ANY pornos. Has anyone?? Sure pornos are sometimes noisy because of lube, but I never remembered queefs specifically. It's like some closely guarded secret or something, taboo I guess, they must edit them out? The worst part, it leaves adolescent males with this fantasy picture of what real sex is suppose to be like, and what women are suppose to look like, because of unnatural (unrealistic) pornos.

Yuck sex is just awkward with strangers, I guess it's a little easier when you have a guy who is use to vaginal air malfunctions. After all, it is usually the penis' "fault" for pushing air in. Some guys like to pull out unnecessarily far in between strokes too. D:< Selfish bastards.

ok i was definitely just thinking about the fact that there are no queefs in pornos b.c i had my first encounter with them the other day. It was terribly embarrassing but both me and my boyfriend laughed about it. It was only really embarrassing b.c it wouldn't stop. Like the instant we'd gotten the mood back it would happen again. eventually we just decided to do something else.

but seriously. porn would be way funnier if people were normal in them. like queefs or having trouble getting it up. way more real and it would give everyone a better idea of what sex is like so they would know what they are getting into. Queefing totally startled me b.c it just wasn't something anyone talked to me about.
tnt_nc queefing23rd-Feb-2009 02:22 am (UTC)
I seem to only queef after sex in the doggy-style position. As mentioned earlier, it tends to happen more often when my head is at a lower level than my butt. I hardy ever queef during sex in any position. It's only after doggy style and I start moving around that it starts. The first few times it happened, both me and the hubby laughed uncontrolably. For awhile, I even avoided the position because I didn't want to kill the mood. But now we know to expect queefing and we just do like you others have said - we have a good laugh and get on with it.
saugustsays 11th-Mar-2009 01:19 am (UTC)
This is absolutely hilarious. I can completely agree with all of you 100%. There has been a couple of times when I've been right in the middle of sex and I'll start queefing uncontrollably, but you're right, it is the man's fault for either going to fast, or pulling all the way out and then back in very quickly. It is SO embarrassing! But thankfully we've always laughed every time it happens. It totally ruins the mood though.
and I know! I was thinking about that the other day, there are no queefs in porn! They really must edit them out...unless some guys have a queefing fetish?

dude ya i know! i wasn't even having sex, were just rolling around and stuff and i queefed for the first time. It was so loud that at first i didnt even think it was me. i thought my boyfriend just farted. then i sat up and it did it again. i turned soo red, i was so embarrassed. but we both laughed.
note to everyone, don't bounce around with your legs above your head lol!
causticchaotic 10th-Aug-2009 09:18 pm (UTC)
Oh my gosh, I can totally relate to you all completely. A few weeks ago, I queefed during sex for the first time. We were doing it in the doggy-style position, with my head quite lower than my hips, and he pulled out and it just let loose! It was like air coming out of a full balloon. I was absolutely mortified. At first, we were both laughing like crazy, but then it wouldn't stop for a few minutes, and when it did I just started crying and I couldn't continue. It totally ruined the whole mood. We talked about it and he said it didn't bother him, that he found it more humorous than anything, but it was still absolutely mortifying for me! I was even terrified to do it in that position afterward in fear of it happening again.

Sorry to hear about your queefing problems...but did you know about this? It is called "La Queefer" and it is a little pink toy that you can squeeze to make lady fart sounds! Maybe that will break the ice? You can see them here: http://www.prankplace.com/product.aspx?d=Farting.La-Queefer-&p=28044&c=98

Its no big deal. When the vagina gets aroused it gets bigger inside. This is called "tenting" lol. This is so that you can accommodate a penis comfortably. When this happens air is drawn in. Now queefing happens after you have started intercourse and the muscles start to relax or for some after you "cum"- loose your arousal, when this happens the extra air that was drawn it gets expelled. Thats what makes you queef. There should be no foul oder, if there is go see a doctor. I am a guy and it isnt a turn off at all. It just show that you were really aroused.
koopatroopaa =/26th-Jan-2010 01:12 am (UTC)
Oh god, I had a quite embarrassing situation with queefing when I was having sex with my boyfriend. We did it two times in missionary position with him on top and everything was completely fine. Then I was on top and after I got off and was just sitting there on top of him talking I just started queefing LOUDLY and so much and jeeeez... I turned so red and at first he had a really surprised look on his face and then he saw how embarrassed I was and was all like " It's just a natural thing! " and we both laughed about it... but now I'm worried that that's going to happen every single time, and I know I'll get over it eventually, but still... I feel like I ruin the mood... a lot. D:
yokogogo 17th-Feb-2010 12:40 am (UTC)
jajajaja! queefs are funny.. but embarrassing.. but ya know, if the guy wouldn't have put his thingy inside you/me.. the queef would have never happened!! so it's his fault =( i go through phases of queefing.. like, i won't do it for a few months, but then randomly for about a week or so i'll queef uncontrollably during sex! it's awful..

but anyways, i don't want to talk about my queefing problems too much.. i just read in some posts about people not ever seeing queefing in pornos..

http://video.xnxx.com/video71396/pussy_farts

i dunno if she's one of the girls that can queef on command.. or if she just happens to queef ALOT.. but it's crazy.. the guy seems to enjoy the queefing.. although i have never ran into a guy that got turned on by queefs...

the queefing doesn't start til about ten min in when they actually start "doing it" lol.. but yeah.. have a look.. porno chicks queef too ;)

pinup_gal92 Im not alone..21st-Jul-2010 12:11 am (UTC)
Hahaha i thought i was one of maybe a couple in the world that does this but im glad its a comman thing.. I have sorta got ways to not let mine rush out making the bad noise.. Genrually it rushes out when u move to the next posishion or just after sex.. I know it sounds gross but i put 2 of my fingers in my vagina and opening it a lil when hes moving or laying down so i can slowly release the air my self before moving on this way too much air doesnt build up and when u let the noise out it sounds like a silent fart inted of a loud one.. i mean occasionally you cant help n just wanna get on with it but thats the only way i can stop mine happening.. x
dravari Avoid the Queef27th-Feb-2011 08:07 am (UTC)
I hated it when first queefed I turned so red but the guy just ignored it like nothing happened and kept going. When It happened to me again the guy laughed (different day)then kept going. After a while I got annoyed that he would laugh so I figured out a better way to resolve it. If I ever feel air or know that a particular position would prone me to queef I would allow the guy to finish his thrusts in that position and if we changed or he took a break would slide my hand down and act as though I was going to finger myself and release any air that had gotten in. Most guys found it sexy and sat back to watch the show while they took their break or while they shifted to change the position.

This actually just happened to me tonight! It wasn't the first time my boyfriend of 8 months and I have experienced it. I remember the first time it happened I was so embarrassed if I remember correctly I made him stop having sex with me because I was humiliated. He tried to reassure me that it was normal and to not worry about it, but me being new to sex didn't believe him. Now it happens here and there and we usually just ignore it. Unless you count tonight when it was constantly happening. Me and my guy were in hysterics laughing so hard. Don't worry, it's a normal thing and you'll get over the embarrassing part eventually. You're lucky enough to have a guy like mine who can laugh, even when you accidentally queef in his face! Hahaha, good luck! :)

Well I have been going out with my bf for only a month, and we had sex for the first time today. I have had sex before with my other partners, but this was his first time... Anyway, we were doing it for half an hour and all of a sudden I queefed. He went quiet and I looked down and I said 'that wasn't a fart, I swear..' Then we both started laughing hysterically. I don't think he knows what it was, and probably thinks I farted. -.- how embarrassing. Anyway, after two minutes of laughing we went straight back to doing it... Even though I kind of didn't want to. He's so shy and quiet. But hes a great guy, I'm afraid that I'm going to scare him off! ;L Why haven't I been dumped yet? lol. I have never ever queefed in my life apart from today... I just hope that it doesn't happen again!
