What is a Dam?

Fresh-Dental_DamA dam is NOT a method of contraception. It is a small square of latex or polyurethane designed to cover the vagina or anal (bottom) area. It needs to be held in place during oral sex. You must only lick one side of the dam, do not turn it over! Always use a new dam if you move from area of the genitals to another. Dams cannot be reused, – do not flush them down the toilet.
