Ok, we have been married almost 20 years and things in the bedroom are not so fun anymore.....he has issues, I have issues and we tried to spice things up a little last night and used a peeled banana as a 'toy' but now I am irritated as heck and was this a really stupid thing to do?

Sex toys are fun and can spice things up but I think you must be careful using food items as sex toys.
I once read that people who have allergies to ragweed should stay away from using bananas in their orifices. Non-organic foods not peeled could also have pesticides that may be problematic.
Using a condom over items (sex toys included) may be a way to protect yourself, but make sure to wash your hands and consider that the condom may slip off.
I believe sugary items (candy, etc) in the vagina can cause a nasty yeast infection.
Any item that is not properly cleaned could also cause an UTI and they are not much fun.
Another concern is to be sure what you insert you can also retrieve. I have never relished the idea of explaining to a care giver in the emergency room that I have a partial banana up there somewhere.

Any food item can cause a yeast infection, not only the sugary ones.
