My article on Dental Dams because I am fabulous and I want to share it with the world because Dental Dams are your BFF
Lots of people think that dental dams are only for lesbians but I’m here to say that this is so not true! Straight people often have this idea that although they might perform or receive the pleasures of oral sex, they are exempt from needing to protect themselves and their partners against what comes
with sharing fluids (sounds clinical, doesn’t it? “Sharing fluids”—but that’s essentially what it is). Do you know that if you have oral herpes (the cold sore virus) you can give someone genital herpes? You can give someone cold sores on their butt. I didn’t until recently because school sex ed sucks!
SO WHAT IS A DENTAL DAM?
Dental dams are a sheet of latex that acts as a barrier so fluids can’t be transferred between people. When used correctly, they are the best way to stop the spread of STIs through oral sex, much like condoms—in fact you can even make them out of condoms!
If you buy dental dams they come in a range of flavours so you can have a whole lot of fun licking something that tastes like vanilla, or mint or even bubblegum! Just remember that if you get flavoured ones then only one side will be flavoured, so put that side away from the designated licking zone (you want to be able to taste the goodness and your partner won’t be wanting a yeast infection, me thinks). Adding a bit of water-based lube on the vulva or anus before placing the dam on top is also a top notch decision as it will make everything loads more pleasurable for the babe who is receiving.
ARE THEY REUSABLE?
Obviously there are some rules that come with having fun times with dental dams. The first one being don’t reuse it! Don’t shift it from the vulva to the anus (or vice-versa because hello bacterial infection!). Don’t turn it over and use the other side (you’ll end up sharing fluids which is what you wanted to avoid in the first place, am I right?). And don’t share between partners. Dental dams are like condoms—don’t use ‘em twice!
HOW DO I MAKE THEM OUT OF CONDOMS?
Carefully open your condom packet (that you got for free at Student Health!) and take out your condom. Cut the tip off and down one side so that when it’s unrolled it becomes a rectangle. Super easy! You can also use latex gloves. Just cut the fingers off and cut along the holes to create a sheet.
So in conclusion a dental dam with some lube is your BFF for safe oral sex, and using latex gloves when you do your finger sexing is also a really good idea. And for all you fem/mes out there with long nails you can add some cotton wool to each fingertip and then you will have a soft padded surface to work your magic with.
Now go forth and have ALL of the safe cunnilingus and anilingus!
