The Dental/Oral Sex Dam

What is a dental/oral sex dam?

A dental/oral dam is basically a small sheet of latex which acts as a barrier between the vagina or anus and the mouth: Cunnilingus or analingus. Dental dams get their name because they are used during dental surgery such as root canals. Due to the possible infectious secretions from both the vagina and anus, the dental dam is becoming a more popular safer sex tool.

How effective are dental dams?

Dental dams or oral sex dams are an extremely effective means of preventing infection from vaginal or anal secretions. There is little data available on rates of infection after use of the dental dam. There are a few important concerns which may reduce the effectiveness of the barrier. Before you use the dam, lightly rinse it off with warm water. Dry with a towel. Then check to be sure the dam is free of holes or breakage. You can check the dam before you use it by holding it up to light or seeing if water is able to pass through it. Finally, ensure that only one side of the dam comes in contact with the genitals, and that the dam is used only once. Otherwise you are defeating the whole purpose of using the dam in the first place.

Only use water based lubricants (we recommend Wet Original ) when using dental dams.

How do you use dental dams?

  •  Do not use expired dental dams or dental dams that are yellowed, brittle, sticky, or have holes.
  • If you have oral-anal sex or oral-vaginal sex, use a new dental dam each time to reduce the risk of transmitting disease.
  • Handle a dental dam carefully so as not to damage it with fingernails, teeth, or other sharp objects.
  • Rinse off any powder that's on the dam.
  • Water-based lubricant may be used on the vulva or anus of your partner before using the dam to increase sensitivity.
  • Place and hold the dam against the vulva or anus of the receiving partner. Some will stay in place (like Glyde Dams).
  • Dental dams can only be used once, so after you are done, wrap the used dental dam in tissue and throw it away. Do not put it into the toilet, since it can clog plumbing.

cunnilingus - oral/vaginal sex

rimming - oral/anal sex

Dental dams are relatively easy to use. Remember to use some water based lubricant on the vagina or anus beforehand to increase the amount of stimulation received.

We recommend the brand name: Sheer Glyde DamsĀ®
Are specially designed as a barrier for use while performing cunnilingus (oral/vaginal sex) or oral/anal sex (rimming).

When properly used, may help reduce the risk of catching or spreading many sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) such as syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia infections, genital herpes and AIDS. However, they cannot eliminate the risk.

During Intimate contact, lesions and various body fluids can transmit STD's. Therefore, the Sheer Glyde Dam should be applied each and every time before such contact occurs.


  • Remove Sheer Glyde Dam and lay it flat covering the entire vulva, covering both the vaginal opening and clitoris, hold the edges of the dam. For oral/anal, cover anus using a new Sheer Glyde Dam.
  • (Optional: Moisten the vulva or anal area with any commercially available water-based lubricant before putting the dam in place, taking care not to leave lubricant on your fingers. Lubricant on the fingers may make it difficult to hold Sheer Glyde Dam in place.)
  • Always use a new dam if you switch from oral/anal to oral/vaginal sex to reduce the risk of infection from harmful anal germs.
  • Do not stretch the dam.
  • Do not expose to direct sunlight. Heat and light accelerate the degradation of latex film.
  • Store in a cool, dry place, at room temperature (59-86 degrees F)
  • Sheer Glyde Dams are not for sharing.
  • Dispose of after single use in the original packaging.


  • Do not use during penetrating penile/vaginal or penile/anal intercourse.
  • This product contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions in some individuals. If you experience a reaction, stop using this product and contact your physician.

 As always... Safe and sane!
