Dental dams

Status
Not open for further replies.
As an offshoot to that condomless oral sex thread, I wanted to ask about dental dams. Sex ed in high school went over them briefly, but never really went into details like they did with condoms. I've never seen one in real life, never used one, and to be honest the thought of using one when eating someone out is kind of hilarious.

I can't imagine it's enjoyable for either person, but that's what this thread is about. Has anyone here used them? What's it like? Is it as hilarious as it is in my head?

Patrice is right. No dude fucking on some random chick is ever going to bust one out. A condom sure, but there's no way in hell a random stranger picked up in a club is going to see someone lay a plastic towel over their junk and not be offended or put off. The vast majority of dudes are out there to bust a nut and think afterwards in these situations. Anything that will potentially cock block them will probably be thrown out the window at the first sign of protest.

Also when I think of dental dams I don't think of.

I just see



That's prob someone's fetish tbh.
 
But I like the taste of pussy.

I mean, me too. It's one of the perks of going down on a girl

That video was one of the things that made me make this thread

I've never heard of dental dams a day in my life until now. I'm assuming they're like mouth condoms?


Basically plastic wrap. I knew a few lesbians that used them, but they hated them. They ended up just using them as finger condoms and fingered whatever girl they picked up. They told me that not having to piss with safe sex was a contributing factor for them becoming exclusive.

It's absolutely true though, I know enough friends who had one night stands and a partner protested to condom use. Male and female. At that point I'd be like hold up, I don't know where your shit's been... But some people would totally be like, fuck it you know Herpes prob ain't all that bad!

I use them on a pretty consistent basis. They help keep the patients tongue down and isolate the tooth I'm working on so the saliva doesn't ruin the filling. They can be a pain to put on, but overall I feel like it's wait use them for what now?

Ah okay, they seem like a hassle to use.

Yup, pretty much. Sucks for the giver, sucks for the receiver.

I'm you can get stds with all your holes.

Real talk you shouldn't be going down on strangers, by that's just me saying that as A heterosexual male.
 
pretty much no one likes using dental dams or condoms during oral sex, which is why HSV-1 in the genital area is becoming much more common :p

tongue smiley was intentional
 
In health class they said you can cut the tip off a condom and cut up lengthwise to make a dental dam. I have never taken advantage of this knowledge.

Edit: thought this through more and this could be taken the wrong way! Don't mean any offense, was merely pointing out that "dental dam" sounds a lot like "dental plan"

I've known a few women who had hang-ups about being eaten out, and I'm sure that slapping one of those over my mouth and licking my lips would have helped them get over that hump immediately.

Really? They wouldn't have been like "I don't feel like having a shrink-wrapped tongue all up in my business?" Because I can't imagine it feels as good

I imagine one of these things would greatly hinder sensation. Wouldn't it be like OTP fingering basically.

I always carry one in my wallet and "accidentally" flash it to my date while I'm paying for dinner

dental dams are the hottest way to tell your lover "im totally prepared to pleasure you orally, but i suspect your fluids to be carrying disease."

Never used one. The concept is just...bizarre, for whatever reason. I realize it's technically no different than using a condom but I would feel weird using one and I can only imagine what sort of reaction I'd get.

If I was concerned about diseases I'd sooner skip the cunnilingus altogether.

Had to google image what a dental dam is and now I'm laughing hysterically, I can't imagine anybody actually using one

I think high school sex Ed classes are required to mention them as a thing, but mine didn't go into real detail. No one asked and I'm pretty sure everyone in the class was just in silent agreement that the concept is insane, let alone the actual execution

I don't think they're much more of a turnoff than condoms but I do think that they're just so much less ubiquitous which makes a difference. I know that they're expensive as hell, so I grab em every time I am in the student health center. Don't currently have a use for them but you can never be too safe.

It may seem like they look dumb or whatever but when you're getting down it won't matter. I know there's a few queer porn directors who film sex with them and that rules.
