Anybody who is sexually active should be aware of how to use a dental dam for sex. This is especially important for people unsure of their partner's cleanliness when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases. When a person knows how to properly use a dental dam for oral sex, they can dramatically decrease the risk of contracting an STD. Dental dams may seem kind of strange at first, but they're easy to learn how to use and can potentially save your life.
- Water-based lubricant (optional)
- Dental dam
- Check the expiration date on the back of the package. You should never use an expired dental dam.
Tear the package open and remove the dental dam. Unfold the dental dam and inspect it for tears or holes. Never use a damaged dental dam.
Hold the dental dam over the vagina, anus or any other body part you wish to orally pleasure. Make sure the dental dam completely covers the chosen body part.
Apply a water-based lubricant to the side of the Dental Dam you intend to lick, if desired. A flavored lubricant may be more pleasant to lick than the dry latex. Do not use oil-based lubricants as they may damage the dental dam.
Lick the body part through the Dental Dam. Everybody gets pleasure from different techniques, so ask your partner what feels best for them to ensure the most amount of pleasure possible.
Discard the Dental Dam immediate after you use it. Never use the same dental dam more than once.
