Sure, Oral Sex Can Be Fun (Now, Let's Make It Safe)!

By May 3, 2012

Follow me on:

So, to throw a bit of a curve ball out from my usual contraception information, I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the dental dam. No, I am not implying that you are due for your latest dental check-up; however, this is a nifty little device to have around. Although it provides NO birth control protection (meaning, it won't stop you from getting pregnant), it very well may save you from getting an STD during oral-vaginal sex or some sort of parasite if you are engaging in oral-anal sex (rimming).

The bad news (yep, there's usually a catch): dental dams can sometimes be hard to find and can be somewhat expensive. But, there is some good news -- you can easily make dental dams at home with a condom and a pair of scissors.
