Before you get judgmental about people who eat while having sex, I want you to take a minute to think about the wonders of how to eat food while you're having sex. If you're a woman on the go, multitasking is a must. There's no two ways about it. And although you'll find plenty of information out there about what kinds of foods to avoid before sex and what kinds of foods to imbibe in for better sex, the logistics of eating food while having sex may not be so clear.

Though it might seem a little bit tricky to bring food into your next tryst between the sheets, there's no time like the present to shake things up a little bit. Rather than being afraid of bringing your latest culinary achievement into the bedroom, take the following guidelines and run with them, because it's not as daunting as it might seem. Whether you're interested in introducing food into your foreplay, or you're just hungry and need to satisfy yourself in more ways than one, the following playbook for how to eat food while you're having sex will have you jumping on the culinary coitus bandwagon and never looking back.

Though you might be considering using food like you might use a sex toy, Jennifer Landa, chief medical officer of BodyLogicMD and author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women said that using food during sex acts can be dangerous. "Foods like cucumbers and bananas might seem like a fun replacement for a sex toy, but they can cause imbalances of the vaginal flora (the normal, delicate bacterial balance in our vaginas) and even cause other types of bacterial infections," Landa told Cosmopolitan. "So eat it, don't use it."


Regardless of how you bring food into the bedroom, according to Durex, you'll want to keep all food away from you and your partners genitals. Because food can get sticky, irritate your skin, and create infection, keep the food above the belt, and in your mouth. That goes for any drinks you might bring into the bedroom, too. Men's Health recommends bringing sparkling wine to your next sexy session. The effervescence will not only tantalize your tongue, it'll make for a good time if you or your partner want to pour a little bubbly on one another. If you're not sure how to incorporate food into your foreplay, or you want to be sure you're going to be safe with food and sex, OB-GYN Alyssa Dweck told Women's Health that most foods are clear for foreplay on the surface, but when it comes to anything getting near your vulva, it's best to stick to sex toys.
