Thats because gastroenterologist Dr. Patricia Raymond says the holiday is full of gas land mines.
She warns that goodies like milk chocolate and champagne are romantic but flatulent and recommends enjoying dark chocolate and red wine, which are less likely to cause eruptions.
Raymond also says oysters are a safe bet to beat gas but only if you avoid dipping them in any milk-based products.
She also says to be careful when lapping up chocolate body paint or whipped cream off your partner because the constant tongue action causes people to swallow pockets of air and fart.
However, these embarrassing situations can be avoided altogether by taking a charcoal-filled capsule called a CharcoCap after eating or giving your lover odor-removing charcoal panties as a Valentines present.
