What is queefing?
Virtually every woman has experienced queefing but few people actually know what the name of the phenomenon is and why it happens. Queefing happens when air becomes trapped in the back of the vagina and then gets released during or after sex. This release of air generally sounds like a fart that’s coming from your vagina. Some people find it funny, others are embarrassed by it but there are even those who are turned on by queefing.
Why do women queef?
The good news is that a queef is just air that has become trapped inside the folds of a woman’s vagina, it has nothing to do with flatulence. The air gets trapped in the vagina when a penis, toy or even fingers go in and out of it. Then, the air comes out. This can happen during sex if there isn’t a tight seal between the penis and the vagina or when the penis goes into the vagina diagonally.
Queefing often also happens after sex since the woman’s vagina elongates during sex to accommodate for the length of the penis and then shortens after sex, expelling the extra air.
Sometimes queefing can also happen as a result of workouts, inserting a tampon or another object into your vagina, etc.
