GROSS.

This is why your farts smell worse in the shower

Test if you don't believe.

Experts explain that this is because you are in an enclosed place and the noxious fumes have nowhere to escape to.

The fact that you're naked also increases the potency since there is no fabric to absorb or lock the smell in.

The humidity in the bathroom also contributes. Studies have shown that water vapour in the air can increase the sense of smell.

The water vapor also doesn't help because the water molecules hold the air bubbles from your gaseous waste making the stench last longer than when it's in dry air.

Regardless of this, you should never hold a fart in. Some studies show that holding a fart in will make you burp it out.

While others show that it doesn't adversely affect your health but it will cause major discomfort because it could lead to bloating.
