I'm loathed to say 'we've all been there' but let's face it, we have.
You're on the bus or the train, and suddenly you're overcome by the urge; you're not quite sure whether you can get away with it, but eventually you take the risk and let out a sly fart.
You stand back and watch as it passes through the carriage and hits each person, as they turn their heads in disgust and try to figure out who the foul beast is.
They can never prove it was you and there's something incredibly satisfying about that.
Well, I'm sorry to say those days might be over. I know - I'm as sad as you are.
A new range of jeans have been released which claim to eliminate the dreaded smell, giving a 'double layer of protection, giving increased confidence'.
The geniuses behind the invention are Shreddies - not to be confused with the cereal brand - whose motto is 'fart with confidence', a philosophy I think we can all get on board with.
But there's a slight catch, because if you think this kind of magic comes cheap, then you are sadly mistaken - a pair of these bad boys will set you back a cool £100.
However, there are a range of sizes to choose from, with men's jeans going from 28 to 40 and women's from eight to 20.
The design firm say they have used a special carbon back panel, which is key to stopping odour from escaping.
The website says: "Shreddies' flatulence filtering garments feature an activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours.
"The carbon lining gives increased protection and more freedom to enter social situations."
I think we all know someone who could do with a pair of these.
