Couples will go to great lengths to fulfill their partner’s sexual fantasies. While some men and women practice BDSM (bondage and discipline, dominance and submission) and S&M (sadism and masochism), which includes whips, chains, handcuffs, and leather, others with a sweet tooth, apparently, choose to add just a dash of sugar. That was the case for a California couple who experimented with Pop Rocks sex — putting the fizzing candy into the woman’s vagina. The fantasy ended in the emergency room.

 

The couple’s not-so-sweet sexual experience was capped off after they realized the candy was causing a “burning and itching,” not “tingling,” sensation in her genitals. "She said, 'The rocks are supposed to have added to our sexual pleasure, and I made my husband use them,'" said David G. Meyers, an emergency room physician in Newport Beach, Calif., in an episode of Sex Sent Me To The E.R., on TLC. "So she said she bought these candy rocks which are supposed to explode and tingle and sensation to their sex."

 

When sugars such as whip cream, syrups, and candy during sex touch the vagina, it typically upsets your PH levels. This can also cause or further irritate an existing vaginal yeast infection and lead to other yeast problems in other parts of the body.

Although this married couple’s Pop Rocks sexual fantasy should’ve best remained a sexual fantasy, they are not the only ones who have attempted to make sex “yummy” with the sweet treat. Cosmopolitan magazine has suggested for women to sprinkle a few Pop Rocks on their tongue just before puckering up. The candy is said to explode in your mouth as you’re making out, and your tongue will feel a bubbly, popping sensation.

 

But perhaps sex and sweets do not go hand-in-hand and should be avoided at all costs. Remember, just because it fits in your vagina, doesn’t mean it belongs there.
