Dental dams get a bad rap. Hated even more than their cousin the condom, the dreaded dam really means well in its safe sex purposes, but it's never easy to find someone that would honestly rather wrap it up than raw dog it - especially when it comes to oral sex. Sheer Glyde Dams ($6.99 for a three pack) have tried to make the anti-dental dam but in their see-through latex pursuits they've instead succeeded in making…just another kind of dental dam.
The front of the Sheer Glyde package won't help to intrigue the safe sex skeptic with its '80s glamour shot of a strong hand reached out, the dam dangling over the fingers - perhaps a soft breeze tickling the flaps around the wrist. But stick to your socially conscious guns when busting it out during foreplay. Even though it might provide obstacles to your orgasm, you and your partner can get there with a little determination and creativity. And at least it beats abstinenc. SheerGlydeDams
As a woman of the '00s it ain't no thang to have a well-stocked supply of condoms and other varieties of anti-STI helpers at your disposal, and it's a great idea to use some dam-mage control with your partner. Especially if (and even after) you get tested together or - gasp! - you are having a little one night stand. Sheer Glyde Dams come in a variety of flavors and corresponding colors - crème is vanilla, purple is wildberry, pink is strawberry, and black is cola. But really, they all taste like latex, no hints of the Skittle-esque delights they promise.
The dams are petite and won't keep you safe if you use them for penetration, so keep them around only for any oral encounters below the belt - front and back. The little rectangles are placed over the goodies for full oral exploration…well, as much as can be reached. Even the most skilled oral artists will have a harder time exploring the necessary nooks and crannies. Another fault in the design is that with the smaller cut - although you'd think less bulk would be better - you have to keep repositioning the dam during use. The stop-and-start could be hot, but in reality it just takes away from fun times. The eventual orgasm is muted by the inevitable fumbling and leaves you squirming for more. And remember to play nice! Rough oral action might cause rips and tears, so watch those teeth…
