Dental Dams - A Personal First

While I felt that Glyde Dams made oral sex with my partner a little less pleasurable, keeping you and your intimate partners safe should be your top priority when it comes to any sexual activity, and these Dental Dams do a good job helping to keep everybody from passing on STDS. Personally, I love them because they work really well as a covering for one of my favorite porous sex toys - the Hitachi Magic Wand.
They came in different colors. They keep you and your partner safe!
Latex barriers take away a lot of the intimacy that makes oral sex amazing.

extremely useful review
This was my first experience using dental dams. They were a lot less scary and awkward than I thought they would be. I used Glyde Dams primarily during oral sex with my cunt-owning partner. Glyde dams are conveniently sized for oral-vaginal or oral-anal contact, at ten inches by six inches. They're also FDA approved. You should be aware that Glyde dams are made out of latex, so you should definitely look elsewhere if your partner's allergic.

My favorite thing about these dental dams was the way they were packaged - in resealable plastic baggies. It was very easy to remove them from their packaging without worrying about damaging them (something that's certainly not the case when it comes to opening most packaged condoms). While I would never ever ever try to re-use a dental dam, the heavy-duty plastic baggies were convenient for both after-sex cleanup or re-use as storage for non-safe sex related items - for instance, storing clothespins or hair ties.

Honestly, after my half a dozen or so encounters with these dental dams, I'm not a huge fan. Because my partner and I are disease free, I've stopped using them for oral sex. My experience using Glyde Dams does not extend to oral/anal contact, aka rimming, so I've got nothing to report on that end.

However, I did find the perfect alternative use for my Glyde Dams:

You know how the bulb at the end of the Hitachi Magic Wand is porous? Porous materials trap all sorts of gross and icky bacteria. Obviously, direct contact with porous sex toys is a no-no when bodily fluids are concerned, especially if you intend on sharing your toys with one or more partners over an extended period of time.

The first time I ever used a Magic Wand, I was playing with a man who used latex-gloves to cover the end. While the glove worked as an effective barrier/protective covering, the whole experience was incredibly awkward, as there were all these empty dangling blue fingers coming out of the end, and quite frankly, I felt ridiculous and a little bit grossed out.

Glyde Dams, on the other hand, are the perfect solution to the porous head of Magic Wands. You can stretch the dental dams over the top of the Hitachi and tie the ends into a knot at the base of the vibrating bulb, creating a quick, easy, and effective cover for your well-cherished sex toy. I do this each and every time I use my Hitachi nowadays, which means that I will continue to buy Glyde Dams despite having decided not to use them during oral sex unless absolutely necessary for health reasons.
As I've said, I am not the biggest fan of using Glyde Dams when it comes to oral sex. Still, the overall experience was much more intimate than I had expected as a dental-dam virgin. The latex material is both intimately sheer to the touch and reassuringly strong when you stretch it out with your fingers. The closest material that I can think of to compare Glyde Dams to is a balloon.

Obviously, dental dams work much better when you put lube underneath them, so that the sex still feels (at least somewhat) wet and slippery and amazing on your partner's cunt. Also, the thinner you stretch these dams with your hands, the more your partner will be able to feel your mouth, although you should obviously be careful when stretching them, because you don't want them to break. You can purchase a handy-harness for fastening dental dams over your partner's cunt if you're feeling lazy or would rather use your hands to caress your partner during sex.

Because of the way these dams were marketed, I had been under the impression that they were flavored. However, as far as I can tell, the catchy titles - Cola, Wildberry, Cream, and Strawberry (not all of which are carried by EdenFantasys) have nothing to do with how these dental dams taste. All the names mean are that the Cola dams are colored black, the Wildberry dams are colored purple, the Cream dams are colored white, etc. If you're into yummy oral sex, definitely consider putting lubricant on top of these dental dams as well as underneath them, so that the experience tastes a little less plastic-y, and a little more slippery and delicious. I tried this with Sliquid H20's Green Apple Tart flavored lubricant and it made oral sex with Glyde Dental Dams much more fun.
