If you’re looking to spice up your sex life, you might consider adding something sweet into the mix.
From whipped cream to edible body paint, there are a number of food items you might want to try and incorporate during foreplay.
But before you go getting any wild ideas, a doctor has advised that you avoid inserting foods such as melted chocolate into the vagina and other intimate areas as it could cause burns or irritaion.
This unusual warning comes weeks after a medical professional reminded women what a terrible idea it would be to put ice lollies inside their genitals as a way to cool down.
She believes it’s perfectly fine to use melted chocolate in the bedroom – as long as the temperature is right and the tasty treat stays on external body parts.
“Chocolate is not dangerous if used in intimate areas externally and not too hot,” Dr Datta said. “However it is important to wash it off to fully minimise the risk of infection or irritation developing afterwards.
“I would not recommend inserting foods into the vagina due to the risks.”
More worryingly, a nurse begged ladies not to try and vacuum their periods after two young women were hospitalised for doing just that.
She claimed the women, aged 19 and 23, had used a Hoover to try and suck up the blood and end their periods early.
The unnamed woman warned of the possible dangers of doing this in a now-deleted tweet, saying: “Your period has a steady flow of its own that for all intents and purposes your body can tolerate. A vacuum increases the flow over 1,000 times which your body can’t tolerate, therefore sending you into shock.”
