FIRST Dates viewers were left stunned as a urologist looking for love gave a circumcision demonstration on a banana.
Abi, 33, was given the fruit and a knife by the TV crew, eager for her to show how the procedure is done.
The skilled surgeon carefully removed the tip of the banana and demonstrated how she would tackle the op on a man.
She grinned while wielding the knife, saying: "To do a circumcision you just mark it all the way round here…
"And essentially you are trying to cut that bit, open it out, fold it back back, take off that bit of skin."
But viewers were left wincing as she deftly sliced the banana.
One person said: "Circumcision demonstration on a banana was unexpected."
Another added: "Awwww the guys crossing their legs as the surgeon circumcised a banana."
Abi's date with Adam, 34, an accountant, seemed to go well – however the pair didn't go any further after meeting.
Male circumcision is the removal of the foreskin. This is the retractable fold of skin that covers the end of the penis – it's a continuation of the skin that covers the whole penis.
There are two main reasons why people are circumcised, medical and non-medical.
Circumcision is a common practice in some religions but rates of the procedure have dropped in recent years.
Many people say that the procedure helps reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections – which can cause kidney issues in later life.
Medical circumcision is carried out when the foreskin is too tight and won't pull back – this is a condition known as phimosis.
Non medical circumcision is usually carried out in Jewish and Islamic communities and in many African communities – mostly on children.
It comes after we debunked several myths surrounding circumcision – including hygiene and fertility claims.
