A new study has discovered that farting in front of your partner leads to a longer and healthier relationship. According to relationship guru, Cynthia Powell, couples who get over the shame of a first fart sooner, have a better chance of staying together longer and being happy together.
The controversial New York-based relationship expert, Powell, said this in an interview with the influential Irish show, Late Late TV. She told this to host, Ryan Tubridy. “Once couples get over the first embarrassment, a whole new period of openness, honesty and trust begins.”
The health benefits
“I may not be an expert, but I can imagine that a few hours of horizontal movements will certainly affect the gastrointestinal tract. And as they say, in a relationship, you shouldn’t ever bottle things up.”
The connection with Ireland
Powell then continues and tells host Ryan that the Irish need to loosen up a bit. She argues that in this case, Ireland should take a leading role in normalizing farting in relationships. This is what Ireland has done with same-sex marriage, the introduction of divorce and compliance with the constitution.
What does the public say?
Powell then contacts other guests of the show and asks them to fart during the show, on national television. Strangely enough, only Gerry Adams disagrees. She states that she has never been someone who farted a lot and would never do that.
Powell has recently published a book on this titled, ‘Flatulence, Freedom and Love’, which is about relationships, farting in relationships and the consequences it brings.
