I'm a little bit worried over a conversation I had with a close friend of mine the other day. She was telling me about how her boyfriend had seen some porn where a guy was putting food, like banannas and popsicles, inside the woman he was with, and he wants to try it with her now. She didn't seem extremely worried about it, and I've heard of doing things like this, but have never had any experience with it myself. But still, I wouldn't imagine that having something like that inside your body could be extremely safe. I'd always heard that your vagina is an extremely controled enviornment, and that introducing something organic that hasn't been specifically formulated and purified could mess up the balance of things. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else knew anything about this, or if I'm just being paranoid.

bing bing! cheers to you for thinking, you smart cookie, you!

it's never a good idea to introduce things into your vaginal environment that aren't specifically formulated for it (such as medications and lubricants, and the like). even semen can lead to infections and problems, and it's basically meant to be there. so put a condom on ANYTHING that goes into your vagina, and keep food out of there!

basically, it's like you said: you have a very delicate balance of organisms and bacteria in there, and they do a darn good job of keeping it clean when left to themselves. do anything out of the ordinary (like sex, fruits or vegetables, or even taking antibiotics), and the balance can be upset.

Here's a good rule to follow: if you want to put something inside your vagina or someone else's, or into your/someone else's anus, put a condom on it first.

It's eminently possible to put fruits, veggies, unsharpened pencils, and other basically safe and nontoxic things into the vagina. It's something that a lot of people have done over the course of human history. Phallic-shaped objects have simply always excited a bit of sexual curiosity. That's okay. And really, it's usually pretty safe to insert objects into the vagina or rectum as long as you follow a few really simple safety procedures.

Auntie Hanne's Super Duper Guidelines If You're Gonna Stick Something In Your Wazoo

1) Objects used in anyone's vagina or anus must be SMOOTH, UNBREAKABLE, NONTOXIC (not poisonous), and must not have sharp corners or edges. No sharp points. No glass. No edges. No hairbrushes. Got it?

2) Objects used in anyone's anus (butt) must have a FLARED BASE -- the base must be larger than the rest of the object, so that it can't be entirely inserted into the anus. Objects inserted entirely into the anus could become lodged there and require medical assistance to remove them.

3) Objects used in anyone's vagina or anus should be of a REASONABLE SIZE. If it's too big, and it hurts to try to insert it, it's too damned big, so STOP. Use something smaller.

4) Anything inserted into anyone's vagina or anus should be covered with a CONDOM. A water-based personal LUBRICANT should be used to help lubricate both the condom and the genitals or anus.

If you have 1-4 under control, you should be just fine.

Thanks! I took what you all said and then did some research on my own. My friend is one of those people who probably won't listen uless you can provide documented evidence like medical journals, that prove your point. She was really glad that I cared enough to worry about her, and after a bit more research, decided that she really wasn't interested in having food inside her even if it was covered. I think her exact words were, "I am not a refrigerator!" I had to laugh about that! Anyway, I'm just glad that she and I are comfortable enough to talk about things like this. It's good to know that we're looking out for each other.

Anyway, muchas grasias again!

Oh dear, my eyes are tearing up. "I'm not a refrigerator!!" Well Kitten it's great you and your friend have that kind of relationship. Maybe she should sign up for the scarleteen boards, eh? Sheesh, I wish I was funny like that...

Bananas wearing condoms? Hah, that's funny! That's a very funny picture. It reminds me of "Never Been Kissed."

What's even funnier is putting a condom wrapped banana in a gir's vagina! Why would someone want to do such a thing?

Now that's what I call tropical sex!

I don't know... maybe I've been very sheltered, but I know people must do stuff like this, and the thought *still* cracks me up. Maybe I'm immature, but:

Sticking a carrot/banana/cucumber *anywhere* but in the mouth? *Someone* is a bit bored... lol.

If you have a good imagination sticking a carrot/banana/cucumber in your mouth is a good way to get things started, no?

Maybe I'm not sheltered enough...hehe

I've put a condom on a banana twice in my life. Both times were in Anatomy and Physiology class in 8th grade where my old school gave its incredibly lame version of sex ed. Each person was given a banana and a lubricated condom and instructions. I put mine on with no problem, I had read condom instructions many times before. Then I looked over at my best friend who was just staring at the condom. She pushed her banana and condom onto my desk and said, "Please, it's too slimy! Can't you do it?" I tried to convince her to give it a try and I told her how important it is but she refused. Well, I didn't want her to get in trouble, so I did her's for her. It was on the condition that before she became sexually active she would come over to my house and I would teach her how to put a condom on. Yea, happy ending. That's what happened.

Aww that's cute PoetGirl

I've only had to be a condom on anything twice ... That's the only time i've ever touched it, and yes, it's really slimy! In Sex Ed in gr 9 we had to put a condom on a wooden penis. It was hilarious ... everyone was laughing their heads off, it took us the whole period to do it (that was an hr and 20mins for 25 of us lol) Of course i put mine on wrong, so i had to do it again. But now i know and i'm glad my teacher made me do it ... I feel better knowing that i can, even if i don't have the right parts to do it on my own hehe
