        How to use a dental dam?

Dental dams are six-inch squares of latex. Oral surgeons were the first ones to use them. Today, dental dams, in addition to being used by oral surgeons are used by couples who want to practice safer sex techniques. Dental dams are a barrier that can be placed between your tongue and your lovers labia or anus. For those of you who are too embarrassed to purchase one on-line or in a store, you can always purchase a latex glove and make your own. To make your own dental dam, cut open the latex glove along one side and presto, there you have it, your own home-made dental damn. A second option (which is less good) because it is untested, some people claim that plastic wrap is may also help to prevent the transmission of some infections. If you are to try this method, I STRONGLY encourage using several sheets. I truly do not know if it is an effective form of safer-sex.

The technique of using a dental dam

*If you care about taste & comfort, first rinse the dental dam, then use it. Dental dams are covered in power which not only can irritate the genital area, but can leave a funny taste in the mouth.

*Hold the dental dam in place. This can be the job of either the licker or the licked.

*To increase the sensation, put some lubrication between the labia/anus and the dental damn.

*To increase the sensation, the licker could try to create air bubbles while sucking and snapping them back.

*To increase the taste for the licker, put some Nutella on the dental dam. From what I hear Nutella is supposed to spread well on anything, morning noon or night, and it tastes like chocolate. What more could a person ask for?

HTHGS: How STI’s are transmitted (written by Shan &Claude)  

Ask Shan & Claude,  
I've heard many different answers on this question but I need to be sure of the right one. Can you or can you not get a sexually transmitted disease from giving or getting oral sex? If so, how are you supposed to guard against this? Thanks. confused guy  

Dear confused guy,
You absolutely CAN get and give sexually transmitted diseases from oral intercourse.  There is no way to say “there is a x% or y% chance of getting this or that disease.”  We will say that the risks are lower than intercourse/body penetration – and also the receiver is usually at less risk than the giver.  When body fluids are exchanged there is always a chance of something happening – usually the question is – which body fluids.  The way to totally protect yourself if you are going to partake is to use a condom or dental dam.  The dental dams are getting a little more popular – it is a small piece of latex that can be stretched over any part of the body – to provide a barrier.  Hope that answers the question once and for all, Shan & Claude

  Our Philosophy sex is like dancing, it changes every time. It depends on culture, atmosphere and mood. Sometimes it is done alone, with a partner or in a group. It can be fast and hard or slow and soft. Sex is a combination of non-verbal negotiation and verbal cues: a scream, a twitch of the toes, or a flush of the face. There is no one 'right' way to move, only what feels good to all those involved.
