Q: If I put a banana or cucumber in my vagina, will I get an infection?
Anything you put in your vagina, if it has bacteria or other pathogens on it, can give you a vaginal infection. So before you insert an object vaginally, whether it’s a piece of fruit, a dildo, or a hairbrush handle, wash it thoroughly with soap and hot water. If it’s possible, boil it or run it through the dishwasher. Of course, you wouldn’t want to do that with a cucumber. Also, don’t put anything in the microwave to disinfect it – that could get messy.
Bananas are a slightly different story. Introducing something sugary into the vagina, like a peeled banana or other fruit, can be an invitation to a yeast infection. We recommend covering a banana or any other type of food with a condom. If you’re into the messy aspect of using food for masturbation or sex play, or your partner wants to eat the banana out of your pussy or something, wash yourself off thoroughly right afterward, and make sure you clean any residue out of your vaginal canal.
So go ahead and play with your food, just keep it clean.
