Okay, ladies. We know it's great to have a partner who doesn't make you feel self-conscious, but let's be honest - there are certain things we feel are best done behind closed doors. In private. With no one - and we mean no one - around.
According to a new survey by the U.S.-based dating advice web site HowtoGettheManofYourDreams.com, nearly half of the female respondents said they weren't comfortable performing any kind of bodily function in front of those they were dating.
Around 17 per cent felt burping in front of their mates was okay, and 13 per cent said they were comfortable passing gas or urinating in the presence of their partners.
Eight per cent wouldn't give a second thought about picking their noses, and four per cent said they were comfortable going "number two" in front of their partners.
"We were surprised at the number of women who were comfortable performing certain bodily functions in front of the men they were dating," Helen Park, vice president and co-founder of the web site, said in a press release.
"According to our male Relationship Coaches, they've confessed that though they may act like they don't mind, they can't help but be turned off when a woman passes gas, goes number two, or even belches in their presence. They admit it's a double standard, but it's just the way it is!"
HowtoGettheManofYourDreams.com didn't mention the number of women who were surveyed, but even if it's not exactly scientific, the poll does highlight some finicky relationship boundaries.
What other things do you do that you absolutely don't want your partner to see?
Do you close the bathroom door when you floss your teeth? Or, say, while waxing away unwanted facial hair? Do hang-ups about privacy fade over time?
After all, it can paradoxically bring a couple closer together when one person sees the other at their absolute worst. For instance, it can be kind of charming when your partner's there to hold your hair back when you're sick with the stomach flu.
And we all know the notion of "personal space" is tossed out the window during childbirth.
Also, is there really a double standard between the sexes when it comes to bodily functions and nose-picking?
Where do you draw the line?
