Queefing is the sound made when air escapes from a woman’s vagina. It may be referred to as a vagina fart, but it actually has nothing to do with flatulence released from the anus. It’s a natural physical phenomenon, so there’s no need to be shy. If someone questions your queef, just let them know the facts shared below.
Three things we can’t hide; love, a sneeze and a queef.
✔️ Just what is a Queef?
A queef is a sound made when air that has entered the vaginal canal is dispelled.
When a genital, finger or sex toy is inserted into the vagina air can enter also. If you move your body in this state, the air trapped in the vagina can escape and the friction can produce a sound.
Regardless of sexual activities, when the stomach muscles are tightened or the body is relaxed, trapped air can be emitted by abdominal pressure, making a sound.
✔️ If you want to reduce it
Queefing is nothing to be ashamed of, but it can make you uncomfortable if it happens too often. In that case, you can try the following methods.
1) Reduce hard penetrative sex. Your queefing could be being caused by your partner. You can reduce the amount of air pushed into the vaginal canal by penetrating slowly and allowing for more time when changing positions. In particular, queefs can occur more often in doggy style, as the penis is deeper inside the vagina.
2) Use lubrication. It’s possible to delay the escape of air by using lube, which can hold onto the air inside the vaginal canal.
3) Don’t focus on it. If you try to constrict your vagina to prevent air from escaping, sex could become more painful. While some theorize that Kegel exercises can help, in reality they have little to do with the build up of air inside the vagina. It’s important to remember that queefing is totally normal for vaginas.
