NEW technology out of Japan is helping clear the air, both in the bedroom and the boardroom.
With most people finding themselves left gasping for air after being hit with the smell of their partner's flatulence, a Japanese company has taken steps to find a solution.
Deoest has developed a form of underwear that deals with the flatulence most would rather keep bottled up.
The company claims the product uses "whiff-absorbing ceramic particles in the material fibres" which make farts disappear.
While the underwear was first created for those in nursing care with bowel problems, they are fast becoming more and more popular with those that want to fart without making their partner uncomfortable.
"To our surprise, lots of ordinary people, like businessmen who are in positions that require them to see people on a daily basis, bought them," a spokesman said.
