A Brazilian singer says she’s no longer ashamed to pass gas in front of her boyfriend, after she was hospitalized with a case of “trapped farts.”
Viviane de Queiroz Pereira—better known by her stage name Pocah—made the admission in a recent Instagram story after she was treated for intestinal gas buildup.
The 27-year-old told her 15.7 million followers she was too embarrassed to pass gas in front of her partner, so she held in her farts for extended periods.
Pocah claimed she had watched TikTok videos that told her to ignore any discomfort caused by the gas; however, the pain became so severe she decided to seek medical attention.
She’s now advising girls, to not be ashamed to fart in front of their man.
“What’s really embarrassing is not letting your guy sleep because you’re in discomfort, going to hospital with your guy, and the diagnosis being ‘trapped farts.’ From now on, I’m letting them rip, guys. I’m medicated and I’m fine.”
