Human bodies all do the same things, like breathe, eat and sleep, none of which we have no problem talking about, but bodies also do some other things that are a little more private... like farting. It can take a long time for people to be comfortable enough with those around them to pass gas in front of them, even if the person they're with is a long-term significant other. It turns out though that it is best to release that gas, otherwise you could wind up in the hospital. It's a lesson that Brazilian superstar Pocah learned, and she shared her story with her 15 million Instagram followers.

From the hospital, the 27-year-old singer posted stories about what happened. She explained that following hours of being too embarrassed to fart in front of her boyfriend, she woke up at 5:30 in the morning with severe stomach pains. She wound up going to the ER, explaining to her fans, "That's it guys. I'm now fine. Just an accumulation of trapped farts." She went on to urge her followers to pass their gas, saying, "Girls, don't be ashamed to fart in front of your guy because 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.'"

She added, "From now on, I'm letting them rip guys."

Pocah, who has been performing for over a decade, blamed her poor decision on TikTok, where she saw a video that suggested she ignore stomach pains.

The average actually person farts 14 times a day, and if that gas is held in, it could lead to a build-up of pressure which causes discomfort. Worst of all, that gas will eventually come out as an uncontrollable fart.
