Q. My new boyfriend recently suggested we go sex shopping together - at the supermarket. It's not that I'm unadventurous, but apart from watching Mickey Rourke smearing cream over Kim Basinger in 9 1/2 weeks, I've no experience of mixing food and sex. Is it safe?

A. Well that depends on what you're planning! The rule is, never put anything in your vagina, you wouldn't put into your mouth. But that doesn't mean everything you put in your mouth is OK! Don't put anything inside you that could snap off (bananas = bad). If you're unsure, put a condom over it. It's best to use foods that spread on the surface of the body and can be licked off (chocolate, honey, ice cream, yogurt, etc). Avoid getting any of these inside you though, because the acid/alkaline balance of the vagina can be upset very easily and a dose of thrush is no one's idea of dessert. However, so long as the yogurt is natural and unflavoured it can always help if you already have thrush setting in.
