But while queefs do produce a toot-like sound, we can assure you that queefing is not the same as passing gas. Queefing is an involuntary bodily function that occurs when air is pushed into the vagina, gets temporarily trapped in the folds of the vaginal canal called rugae and is then released. Certain sex positions, like doggy style where your pelvis is titled upwards, or abruptly switching from one position to another, may increase the likelihood of queefing. Even non-sexual activities, like putting in a tampon or menstrual cup, practicing yoga like when you move out of an inversion pose or your gyno inserting a speculum can lead to queefing. While the gas that comes out of your rectum may have a foul odor a result of bacterial activity in the gut , queefs are odorless, Hoppe added. Women who have previously given birth, in particular, may be more prone to queefing because pregnancy and childbirth can weaken the pelvic floor muscles.
