Dental Dam Are for Sex and Not for Your Teeth Alone

When we talk about protection during sex, condoms are the first things that come to mind. Some of us can easily name a few brands of condom without blinking because we have seen adverts and probably tried some of them.

However, penetrative sex is not only kind of sexual activity that requires protection, oral sex does too. Contrary to the assumption a lot of people have made about oral sex being very safe, you can still get a variety of infections from engaging in unprotected oral sex even though you can’t get pregnant or impregnate someone via this medium.

So, you might say using a condom when your penis is getting sucked is all the oral protection you need, but what about when you have your mouth in her vagina? let’s take a look at what exactly dental dams are and why you need them.

What exactly is this dental dam thing?

Dental Dam

Are you thinking you would only have to encounter a thing like a dental dam when you visit a dentist? well that’s OK, you can be forgiven for thinking that way and in fact you are nothing close to being totally wrong.

According to information gathered from The Verge, dental dams were originally invented in 1864 and were called the rubber dam. At the time of its earlier use, the rubber dam was something dentists used when ever they needed to isolate any tooth from the entire oral cavity.

Despite people’s knowledge of its original use, they felt that more could be done with this item made of rubber so a century later, it became what it is today. Dental dams are rectangular pieces of material that are either made of polyurethane or latex which are the same materials condoms are made of.

Dental dams are used as a shield against sexually transmitted diseases that can be spread through oral sex which means it does the same thing a condom does except protection against unwanted pregnancy and the part where our is used in the mouth instead of the sex organ.

So what are some of the sexually transmitted diseases that can be spread through oral sex? the infections include: Syphilis, Hepatitis A, Genital warts (which are caused by HPV), oral herpes, Gonorrhoea, Genital herpes, and Chlamydia.

Why should I use a dental dam?

Oral sex with a dental dam might seem like a waste of time to many people and worse still, your partner may feel offended by the thought of sight of you wanting to protect yourself while eating her vagina.

However, there is absolutely nothing to be offended about because safety should come first. Studies have revealed that it is rare for some particular sexually transmitted diseases like HIV to be passed on from one partner to the other during oral sex , however some others have become more common.

Since researches have been able to link oral HPV to a higher risk of cancer of the mouth and throat which is a life threatening condition. Using a dental dam during oral sex is a great way to reduce the risk of contracting HPV, but you should also know that the prevalence of oropharyngeal cancer  is rated at 0.7% in men.

How do you use a dental dam?

Dental dams are very easy to use, all you have to do is hold the rectangular piece of latex or polyurethane against the anus or vulva them proceed to engage in your activity.

Asides protecting you from sexually transmitted diseases, dental dams can also protect you against germs such as Shigella and E.coli which may cause various health issues.

You may not be able to get dental dams easily in some parts of the world but that should not discourage you from protecting yourself during oral sex. Thankfully, there is a DIY option and you do not need much supplies to get it done.

Making your DIY dental dam

To make your sexy DIY project some to life, follow the steps below:

  1. Purchase a condom and carefully bring it out of its package and open it.
  2. Unroll the open condom and cut cut off its tip.
  3. Cut a straight line lengthwise down the middle of the condom.

Voilà! you have made your own dental dam and you can get to business as usual with it. Make sure you check and confirm that the condom does not contain spermicide so that you have to taste that.

You can also order some flavoured ones online if you are not in the mood for a DIY dental dam project.
