Doctors are warning young men to refrain from using banana peels for self-pleasure — a popular new sex trend circulating on social media, The Sun reports.
“You could develop a rash and sores on the penis which can be painful and might lead to infection,” warns Dr. Diana Gill of online medical service Doctor-4-U.
“A person with a banana allergy is more likely to be allergic to other substances such as latex or other fruits and vegetables,” she continues. “So if you’re allergic to latex condoms you may also be allergic to banana skins.”
“Simply peel a banana (you can eat it later), slip the peel over your penis, and masturbate with it,” one man writes to JackinWorld, an online male masturbation resource since 1996. “The banana slime is a great lubricant. You can warm up the peel in the microwave for added sensations.”
More than 300 JackinWorld readers have given the fapping technique an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
“Don’t make the mistake of masturbating with a banana peel,” wrote one Redditor, who says he slipped on the mess and hit his head on the toilet. “It’s simply not worth it.”
“I have been doing it for years and it’s great,” another man wrote in the comments. “It is the closest thing there is to a blow job.”
“I have used the banana skin technique occasionally for many years (I’m now 78),” said one banana skin supporter. “The bigger the banana the better,” added another.
