5 Things No Woman Should EVER Do in Front of Her Husband

Posted by Sasha Brown-Worsham on January 15, 2013 

pooping in front of husbandOne of the best things about marriage is the comfort level you get to with a person who knows you both inside and out. After 10 years of marriage, I can officially say that I have done most things in front of my husband, including shower, pee, have babies, laugh until soda came out of my nose, and sleep. But there are still a few things I will never do in front of him.

It's not that we aren't intimate. We are. Deeply. But I am someone who believes strongly in the power of distance. It makes the heart grow fonder, after all. Some things are just meant to stay private. Forever.

Like popping, for instance. There is a discussion right now on CafeMom about this, and some are in favor of pooping in front of their love, while others aren't. For me, this is a massive no-no. Here are five things I would simply never do in front of my spouse:

1.) Poop: Sorry, ladies. I know some of you disagree with me and think the family who poops together stays together, but no. Not me. Not ever. After 12 years with the same man, I can officially say I still don't even TALK about poop with him. I don't want to hear about his and I don't want him to ask him about mine. Better to keep it all private and pretend it doesn't happen. Some mystery isn't a bad thing.

2.) Pop a zit: This is just a gross thing and something no one needs to see. I don't want to see him do it and I sure as hell don't want him to see me do it. If the bathroom door is locked, you can wait outside, honey!

3.) Pick your nose: I dry heave at the thought. We all know it has to happen sometimes. But just keep that stuff to yourself. No one's fingers belong in anyone's noses. The end.

4.) Remove hair: This means everything. I don't shave, wax, tweeze, or anything else in front of my man. It's just how I roll.

5.) Cut your toenails: I don't know why, but this really skeeves me out. I don't want to see him doing it and I will get my pedicures at the salon FAR from his prying eyes.

Do you do these things in front of your man?

LOL We do all of those thing in front of each other except nose picking. I don't pick my nose but if that includes blowing your nose than we are guilty of that too.  Hell, I even pop his zits. We've been together for 13 years and have known each other for 18 years. There is no need for secrets.

Some of them I haven't done because they simply haven't come up. I don't get zits and neither does he, and while he's pooped around me (while I was in the shower as a matter of fact, he "just couldn't wait any longer" lol), I don't poop very often and usually he's not here when I have to. I wouldn't be worried about it though.

I fail to see how any of these things are bad. Some people just have different privacy levels and gross factors than others.

ETA: Last night I farted, and he goes, "Dude, you can do better than that."

I pluck my eyebrows and cut my toe nails in front of him. I will not shave my armpits while he's in the shower with me, but I did shave my legs once. I was uncomfortable so I rushed and sliced my leg open lol Very sexy! Won't do that again.

Everything else is a no for me.

I do all of the above and have no shame about any of it.  In fact, I pop his zits and remove his hair (I trim his hair every now and then and tweeze our any hard to reach ingrown hairs for him).

My dh sometimes shaves me "down there" and its the sexiest thing in the world to me. We do everything in front of each other. I figure if we can share body fluids we can share anything.
