Do you use dental dams?

Trashley Trashley
ahahaha uhm, WHAT. This is the twentieth century? I believe that's the sister to the female condom. Everyone insists they exist, but they've only ever heard of them and seen pictures on the internet.

I am in a long term monogamous relationship and don't feel it is necessary to put boundaries between the intimacy that could bring me and my partner closer together.

Never used one or even thought about using one. Just feel like it would be a serious mood kill. But I'm in a monogamous relationship where both of us were tested before anything ever happened.

I would use for anilingus/rimming just to be on the safe side, and I can see using them if your partner has issues with infections that can be given by OS (yeast, UTI), and naturally if you weren't sure about your partner.

We generally don't use them for cunnilingus - we're married and she doesn't have a problem with beasties sneaking in on the toungue.

when i am with a new woman, i use them all the time, but the woman that i have been with for 8 years, don't really need it with her.

Fuck it. Fuck it.
I'm not big on casual sexy things that involve fluids, so I'm a no. I'm sure if I was that I would use them, though.

Saran wrap definitely works. Just make sure you don't use the funky special kinds of wrap (like the ones that are microwave safe or those ones that have weird stickiness properties), because a lot of times those create a more permiable barrier than plain old saran wrap. However, saran wrap can rip easily, so it's an issue.

One really nifty thing to do if you don't have a dam around is to make one out of a condom or a glove. to make one out of a condom, just snip off the top and slice up the side (this is most easily done while the condom is still rolled up) and viola!. With a glove, cut off the top 4 fingers and then slice up the side without the thumb on it. This allows a little hole for penetration funtimes.

it depends on the person and situation. for the first time, yes definitely. once I know the person better healthwise and hygienically and I know about their previous sexual activities then maybe I can go without them, provided I'm in a committed relationship.

I was really saddened during my sexual health class the other day to discover that I was the only person in the entire class who had used a dental damn before (30 people or so). At least half of them didn't know what they were.

I am single and ALWAYS use dental dams when I am not in a committed relationship. I have run into women who dont use them, but for me safe sex is a requirement

My girlfriend didn't even know what they were! We've been together for over a year now. I've always gotten to know my partners before hand and when i was going down on them, if i noticed anything weird...i just wouldn't go down on them anymore. I understand wanting to practice safe sex but I think any of the girls I've gone down on would have been really confused and turned off if I tired to pull one out.

We do not use dental dams but have been together for over a year and know that we both are clean (have been tested)and feel that we are safe since we are only with each other. If it was a new person or a new relationship then yes I would use one without thinking. My health is very important to me and feel that I should do whatever I need to and to stay healthy.

Thanks for that explanation. I was confused about what it meant, too!

I've seen one, but never used one, but we're in a long term relationship (and vs. a condom, no need to protect ourselves from pregnancy..)

I've only had sex with one person and it's the same case for her.. So we only use them if one of us is on our period and really want to be eaten out or eat the other person out

My fiancee and I are fluid-bonded, so we don't care.

I'm in a long-term, fluid-bonded relationship with a guy and don't need protection. I'm extremely curious about being with a women, but I know if ever given the chance. I'd use dental dams

The problem with saran wrap is that most of it is microwave safe these days. I've looked for ones with warnings like "non-microwave safe" but have yet to find one. And it's not safe to assume that just because it doesn't say "microwave safe" that it isn't, because microwave safe has become pretty much the industry standard.

So yeah, beware saran wrap. Most of it has tiny micro-pores that totally defeat the purpose.

I've gotta be honest, I have never used one. And I've never been with a woman who used them. I think that people would be more likely to actually use them if they were readily available, but there is something so off-putting about the concept of no-contact oral sex. Of course I don't want an STI. But it seems like dental dams kind of negate the whole oral sex experience.

It's true....brushing/scrap ing just before sex increases the risk of transmitting or contracting an infection

I've been with my girlfriend for over a year and we've never used them, but we both knew we were safe before we had sex. Before her though, I used them whenever possible. It shocks me how many people have never heard of them before.

I'm in a serious, fluid-bonded relationship with my girlfriend, and we both knew we were safe before we began it.

That being said, we occasionally use dental dams if for instance, I've had a cigarette before sex, because I don't want to irritate her.

It amazes me how many people assume that just because it's two girls you "can't get anything". Please be safe!

No I don't. I don't play around much (and always with hubby present) but never used one.

I know it's terrible, but I almost never use them. I guess I should probably start... it's just that so few women really keep them around, and when I want to have sex, I want to have sex!
