What Are Dental Damases?
What are dental dams? Dental dams are latex gloves that fit over your mouth and are used to prevent saliva (the body’s natural saliva substitute) from flowing out of your anus. Why would anyone put a latex condom over my front door? I’ll give you a few reasons. Some of the reasons might include: a) you think it looks cool, b) you don’t want to be caught by your partner, c) because you think it will prevent other people from catching an STI (sexually transmitted disease), d) you work at an office that doesn’t care about safe sex, e) you just don’t want to smell like a bum.
How do dental dams work? First off, there are two different types of condoms: those that are made with a lubricant (most commonly oil) and those that aren’t. All condoms use a layer of latex or another similar substance as a lubricant. When inserted into your anus, the condoms forms a “dammed envelope” around your urethra to keep the blood flow moving so that they don’t come out of your anus.
Why would someone use dental dams instead of other methods? The biggest problem with using a non-lubricated condom is that the friction causes your penis to swell. This means that it is much harder for your penis to stay erect during intercourse, which makes for painful penetration. Having a smaller penis also means that you are less likely to experience premature ejaculation and that your orgasms will be more intense.
So how do you remove dental dams? First of all, I wouldn’t recommend using a “dental dam” to remove any condoms. If you have ever seen a “dental dam” being removed, then you know what I’m talking about. The dildo type of condom goes in between two teeth on the condom. You can’t get that type of gag out of your mouth!
Instead, what you want to use is something called a “polyurethane lube condom”. A polyurethane lube condom is a molded condom that has an insert that you place inside of the vagina. The insert is covered in lubricant, which means that your penis doesn’t touch any surface inside of the condom. The only thing exposed by this condom is the top half (where the polyurethane insert is) of the vaginal cavity.
The other difference between a polyurethane lube condom and a dental dam is that the lube one usually comes in a large variety of colors. For example, they can be found in colors like green, red, purple, pink, yellow, orange, black, and many other more unusual colors. The polyurethane lube condoms also don’t use latex, so they are completely safe to use with people who are allergic to latex. These are a great option for couples who are planning on having kids, and they can be purchased without a prescription (although it’s recommended that you seek out medical advice before attempting to have sex).
