What is an oral dam ?

The oral dam is also called dental dam. It is a rectangle of latex (or polyurethane) generally 25x15cm and 0.070mm thick.

Placed over the vulva or the anus, it constitutes a physical barrier between the mouth and the body of the other partner.


How to use it?

Here are some tips for using a mouthwash:

  1.  Check that the expiration date has not passed and that the packaging is in good condition. If it is not, throw away the oral dam and get a new one.
  2.  Open the package carefully by hand (do not use sharp or pointed objects). Be careful not to damage the dam with fingernails or jewelry…
  3.  Place the dam on your partner’s vulva or anus and hold it so that it does not move.
  4.  As soon as you are finished, throw the dam in the trash.


If you want to use lubricant, make sure it is compatible with the material of your oral dam.

It is imperative not to reuse the oral dam, not to turn it over during use, not to use the same dam for anilingus and then cunnilingus or vice versa.
