There are lots of exciting ways to eat an apple. You can bake it in a pie, you can slice it up into small pieces, you can eat it whole, or, for some added flavor, you can do what this couple is doing and eat it straight from the loins of your lover. [SLC]

she posted her experience to Reddit because she has some concerns, like, "Can this make him or I sick?"

Of greater concern, what made her think she could follow a verb with the nominative form of the first-person pronoun?

So maybe like,try a kiwi...or some other fruit that has skin you don't eat.

1) One does eat the skin of a kiwi
2) Texture! With all those spiny hairs it would feel like a brillo pad!

Those "helpful suggestions" are super dumb, though.
"use barrier devices as such condoms or plastic wrap to avoid bacteria/yeast access to sugars in the fruits/vegetables"
If the dude wanted "apple in a condom" flavor, he would just put an apple in a condom and put it in his pocket.
"if you're not going to use condoms, choose fruits/vegetables with a especially waxy skins such as some apples or cucumber that function somewhat like a barrier"
She's not putting a whole gorram apple up her wahoo, is she? It's gotta be a slice of apple, right? And I know this is probably a failure of imagination but I don't think one could walk around with a whole cucumber smuggled away in one's treasure box.

Don't offer piffle suggestions, Cosmo, in an effort to seem GGG – just say 'no.'

Given the vast number of people around and the inevitability of a lot of outré kinks existing, I would imagine that the typical EMT response to pretty much any sort of accident involving foreign objects in orifices would be extremely unlikely to be shocked incredulity, and far more likely to be a barely noticeable rolling of the eyes, as if to say "you're the third one this week"

This is like watching natural history in real time. There are so many foods out there that make me wonder about the people who discovered them. Like, who was the first person who came across some super stinky cheese and said "yeah, I'm going to scrape the mold off and go to town on this with some bread?" What was their story? Speaking of, what's the story of the very first apple here? But there are more important questions still: shouldn't this be called apple herloin?

Like most teenagers in the 1980s, I had a bunch of Penthouse Magazines and enjoyed reading the Forum. I remember one of them was written from the woman's point of view, talking about going out for a special date with her man. At one point early in the story, as she was getting ready for the date, she wrote "...and right before I left, I slipped a piece of cherry candy in my [vagina]."

And that was the last she mentioned of the cherry candy! The date continued, they came home, they fucked in all the ways people fuck in those articles, his ten inches of throbbing man meat filled her with love juice, yadda yadda, but no more about the cherry candy.

Did it fall out? Did she remove it? Did he find it while he was "hungrily feasting on her love tunnel?" Did he unknowingly push it in further?

I've never forgotten that story and I worry that the candy is still in there.

Carry on.

Seriously, though, she is going to get an epic yeast infection and if they take as little care as they seem to, she's going to pass it on to him, and then there will be no question of making the kink safe anymore because neither of them will want to have sex ever, ever again.

On the first local paper I worked on, our opposition had a problem page. We were pretty certain the staff wrote both the problems and the answers, and every week when it came out, we'd have a hoot, gathering round while someone read the whole lot aloud.

Then one week there was a letter from a woman whose husband liked her to leave things "like belts and ceramic objects" in her vagina and she was starting to get fed up of this and wondering whether she'd be out of order to ask if they could stop with the belts-and-ceramic-objects-stuffing.

I've never decided whether that made it more or less likely that the letters were genuine.

It had originally been a Belle & Sebastian fan board. Those nice twee indie kids, with their bowl haircuts and books and knitting; who would have guessed?

Assuming it's not a troll, the original reddit user's posting history is completely heartbreaking. It starts in November 2015, with a post to r/twox, "How do I offer my husband an alternative way to measure my beauty?":
Our marriage is going on to its 7 years, and for reasons that are completely my fault, I have gained weight, and my hair has started to turn gray.

My husband doesn't much care for me, and when we do spend time together, it is normally in the living room watching TV and playing games. However, it is during TV time, I have the most stressful time, because as pretty young woman come on, he compares me to them, and uses their beauty, body, and youth to measure my beauty. Naturally I can no longer compete, if I had any chance to begin with when I was in my early 20s, just before we got married.

I want to help my husband learn to measure my beauty a different way, like my personality, loyalty, etc. I was hoping maybe there is a way to do this. Would anyone have some advice or suggestions, or had similar experience and came out a winner?

UPDATE: I'm very saddened by the mannerisms and insults people are throwing at my husband. I was looking for advice, though he might not be perfect, neither am I. I am also open to hearing people's take on this situation, but I felt given the nature of this subreddit, I could achieve this without having to deal with the nasty comments.
Here's an example response comment, all four of which are defending her husband: "We are all built differently. Getting married involves two people making a choice. I made my choice, and I want to do the best I can for my husband."

Follow that with the post about the fruit, four months later. The only followup questions from her are asking how she can reduce the risks to herself, and the redditors asking if she actually enjoys the activity, since it sorta sounds like she doesn't, are left with no response.

Finally, six weeks after that, a now-deleted post (damn you r/relationships) with the title "UPDATE: Me [32 F] with my husband [29 M] of seven years were having marriage issues, but now we completely in love again!!" with no prior post (probably also deleted).

Wherever you are, u/morninglost, I hope you really are happy and healthy.
