Vaginal Noises During Sex

Some useful expert advice on the physics of penetration:

Question

What causes vaginal noises with position changes during intercourse? A patient who had a TAHBSO [total-abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (tubes-ovaries removal)] in 2000 and is moderately fit has a small cystocele and rectocele. She is on hormone therapy and has no problem with vaginal dryness. Apparently vaginal noises ("gassy/snuffling sounds") are very loud and have affected her sexual functioning adversely. She came to the office for answers, and I need some help on this one.


Response

The sounds are primarily related to air being forced out of the vagina during thrusting of the penis into the vaginal vault. Air can get trapped in the back of the vagina behind the penis during penetration. As the penis is thrust deeper, the pressure builds and vaginal compliance will reach a peak, causing the air to escape around the penis. The sound created is from the slapping of the vaginal walls (think whoopee cushion).

...

I have several suggestions for counseling this patient. The first is for the patient to try to modify sexual activity with her partner. If they are able to change positions with the penis still in the vagina, this may decrease air entry during intercourse. Along this same line, any lessening of the degree of removal of the penis and reinsertion will serve to reduce this effect. Additionally, by inserting the penis slowly, the overall volume of the sound will likely be greatly if not completely diminished, as it will allow for a slow leak of the air. Shallower penetration will also help by not creating as great a pressure differential in the air trapped behind the penis.

You may also suggest to the patient that she and her partner try to determine whether there are positions that are more problematic and perhaps not use those positions at the beginning of intercourse or perhaps avoid a particular position if they find the noise too disruptive.

The physician might also counsel the patient to laugh at the noise!

My goodness, its normal, thats all the counsel that should be needed. During orgasm the vagina will contract and also make air pulsing noises....feel privileged that its making noise....its a GOOD thing!

This is not ONLY from positions sometimes. My girlfriend makes the same noises, and the noises vary in intensity depending on how hard she climaxes...and yes, it's ONLY when she climaxes. This is also during foreplay when NO insertion has been made. It's not a "loose" issue either. She is not loose at all. She just tightens up so hard during an orgasm that air is forced out. She nor I care about it. She's satisfied with the outcomes, and I know that because I just sit back and count how many times she "tightens up". LOL. Goal is at least 5 or so before any penetration. Once inside, there are no noises from that end. Hope this helps someone else.

You certainly helped me. I am the same situation as your girlfriend. At first I was very embarassed by it and I could not find anything online that spoke about this issue. I am not "loose" nor "overweight" as some blogs have used as excuses and mine is solely related to climaxing.
Now that I know this I am much more relieved. Thank you! ;-)

i'm a guy and it's all normal and a huge turn on for me! my wife knows it turns me on, so she does it to drive me crazy. i think over time it has now begun to turn her on too. of course this all developed from her squeezing me nice and hard and then relaxing, pulsing vagina around my penis.

I'm a guy of 26 years, I want to promise you guys, when your girls' vaginas do not make noise during sex, you know nothing. That;s an interesting part during sex. Vaginal noise is what make me more hard on. I leave the girl if her vagina doesn't fart during sex. Thumbs up with the vaginal noise during sex thumbs up. I think it makes almost everyman more on. Mine fart now and then as long as my penis is inside her, I love it. I wish all the girls I'm sleeping with have vaginal farting.

i totally understand where all the women are coming from. it has happened to me recently for the first time i was so embarrassed! i thought that it was going to be a huge turn off to my boyfriend. i didnt want him to think i passed gas during sex! how akward. i mean i was totally enjoying the sex until the noises happened and i got turned off best sexual experience turned into the worst! until i read online thats its ok that it happens becuase its air being forced into you. i was so scared to do it again with him but now everything is back on track!

this was definitely the peace of mind I was searching for! the noises only came when when we would have sex from the back and even though i know it didn't bother my boyfriend i was embarrassed by it so i was just going to cross that position off our list BUT after reading these comments im all good now ;)

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one it happens to. Whenever my boyfriend has me in the doggie style position my vaginia makes the farting noise but it so turns me on even more as so do him.

We had grate sex but some few mints then this sound comes nd happens 3tym I thought its m who has a problem then we charge the position then de sound was gone

Man, I'm so glad it's perfectly normal. I thought there is something wrong with me or let me say I'm so loose which made me think that it isnt possible since I only had performed sex with 2 guys in my whole life. It was such a relief knowing this fact, even if it's kinda annoyingly embarrassing event during intercourse. Thanks again. ;)

Do you think it happens because a person had had numerous sex partners with different sizes of dicks would probable stretch the pussy out?

can this happen in a first time sex with a girl

 
At 5:21 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm so happy I found this site. It doesn't always happen with me but now that I was a bit more comfortable with my new boyfriend, it happened. I was so embarrassed and scared he would get turned off, but he laughed and I did too. Then later we talked about it and he said he understands it happens and just thinks its funny. I cant come during intercourse so for me its not only a climax thing. Although, sex with him has been better than with anyone else.

Hy it happened to me yesterday it wasn't the first time but it was the first time with a new guy.I was soo embarrassed and it turned me off,he just looked at me with a smile and say"come on don't be like that I know it happens and shows I'm doing my job perfectly" then we continue having sex and I'm glad its normal.
Advice: ladies if it turns your man on and drives him wild don't be ashamed...!
Thanks

Thank u for all the help I had sex with my boyfriend and he wanted to change positions and I dont know much about sex so he was in control. When we changed I had that sound three times the first time my bf laughed and asked what was that. The other time he just stopped!! I was so embarrassed I wanted to cry ive only had sex four times first time that happened. And what really hurts is that he knows how sensitive and shy I am and he laughed and left :'(

this happened to me just before, i was havin sex and we went doggie style and the farts were really loud and wouldnt stop, the guy i was seeing just went faster and harder...so i think it turned him on. we havent spoke about it but keep having sex so shold be okay. I think it also depends how wet you are, me and my guy get so wet theres just to much air and to wet so these noises are constant. but i think he loves it although i hate it, i get super embarrased. we just pretend it never happened

Happens to me all the time. ...first time it happened I told my bf...( lol no im not farting...my vagina makes that noise cuz im sooo wet). Some men are ignorant to the sound..so they think Your actually farting...but its not the same things as an anal fart ! It does turn most men on.

This happened to me my first time ever doing "doggie style" it was the most embarrassing thing and I made him stop. I wished the ground would open me up and swallow me whole. Unfortunately it didn't and I've been embarrassed about it ever since. I don't know why this position causes that to happen but I don't think I'll ever have sex again LOL. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

Is it possible or normal for the air to be trapped for a few weeks and then release during sex?

You definitely have nothing to worry or be embarrassed about. This gassy sound, sometimes referred to as a queef, is merely air escaping from your vagina, and it's quite common. During sex, the in-and-out action of your guy's penis forces air into you, which fills the space in the inner part of your vagina that has expanded during arousal. An especially deep thrust or shift in your body position can cause the air to be released in a noisy emission. Or it might occur after orgasm, when the air is expelled as the vagina returns to its prearoused state.

You can attempt to prevent the air from getting inside you by having your guy make small, shallow strokes. Or, you can try to stick to positions that don't lift your pelvis too much, since pelvis-elevating positions, such as doggie-style, can increase queefing. But, to tell you the truth, the best advice is to just laugh it off. Why would you want to compromise your sexual pleasure because of a little tooting?

This happened to me with my new boyfriend when we switched to the doggie position. And then that noise happened. I was so embarrassed. But it was like he was even more turned. After that we spoke. and he was like its normal. and he loves to hear that noise, it lets him know he is doing a good job.....

Thank God I'm not the only one farting from my vagina. I was so embarrassed with my husband because we were having sex doggy style he penetrated so fast and when he was pulling out I farted so loud from my vagina that we both cracked out of laughter. We kept going... but it was something to remember.

Absolutely not my friend. A woman's vagina was made to stretch and will eventually return to its normal size.

Ask yourself thus question: where does a baby come from?
Don't women still have sex and enjoy it after giving birth?
Wasn't the vagina stretched during the delivery to accommodate the baby?
My friend yes women do lose elasticity but have you ever taught maybe the man's penis can be small?
