Oral condoms are ideal for people who want to protect themselves from STIs that can be passed on through oral sex.

Use oral condoms to protect yourself and your partner during oral play, and you can add some sense of fun with flavoured dental dams such as the multi-flavoured LIXX or Sheer Glyde Dams.

To help you choose the perfect oral condom for you, we answer a few frequently answered questions.

What are Oral Condoms?

Oral condoms, also known as tongue condoms or dental dams, are sheets of latex that are used on the vagina or anus as a protective barrier.  They are available in plain, unscented natural latex or flavoured, so the choice is up to you whether you want to add some tasty flavours when giving or receiving oral sex.

EXS Oral Latex Dams are a popular choice of unscented dental dams if you prefer non-flavoured oral dams.

If you are having oral sex with a new partner or simply want to enjoy safer oral sex, a dental dam will enable you to have as much fun as you like while protecting against STIs that can be passed between bodily fluids, including saliva.

How are Oral Condoms Different to Regular Condoms?

Oral condoms are different from regular condoms because they come in delicious flavours that make oral sex more enjoyable. Still, they remain similar to plain or regular condoms because they offer some protection from unplanned pregnancies as they are a barrier method.

The flavoured coating on an oral condom doesn't provide complete protection from all sexually transmitted infections. It's a good idea to wear a regular condom if engaging in penetrative sex, but an oral condom will also do the job if you have run out of your familiar brand.

To be sure you're using condoms correctly, always read the instructions before using your oral condoms for any other kind of sex.

Why Choose Oral Condoms?

While regular condoms are designed to fit snugly around the dimensions of a penis, dental dams are a flat sheet of latex that are placed over the vagina or anus.

If you are going to be having penetrative sex as well as oral sex, you should have some regular condoms handy too, as the oral condoms can’t be used for penetrative sex.

To be sure you're using condoms correctly, always read the instructions before using your oral condoms for any other kind of sex.

Why Choose Oral Condoms?

Oral condoms offer an excellent way for couples to have safer oral sex whilst still having fun. Oral sex condoms also give the option of adding some fruity flavours during oral sex.

Alternatives to Oral Condoms for Oral Sex

If you do not want to use dental dam style oral condoms, you might want to use regular condoms as an alternative during oral play. Flavoured condoms are available in all types of flavours, including cherry, mint and even chocolate, which could add some extra fun. 

You might want to try a variety pack of flavoured condoms to find out which flavours you like the best, such as the EXS Variety Pack Condoms or SKINS Flavoured Condoms.

Are Oral Condoms Better than Regular Condoms?

Oral condoms are not necessarily better than regular condoms - they are just different. Regular condoms protect against unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, while oral condoms offer protection from STIs when giving or receiving oral sex.

Who Buys Oral Condoms?

Oral condoms can be used by anyone who wants to enjoy safer oral sex, while having the option to buy flavoured dental dams for an added fun element to sex. Dental dams help to prevent mixing bodily fluids during different types of oral sex.

From young adults experimenting with different kinds of safe sex play to established couples looking for something new and exciting, oral condoms can be used by anyone looking to enjoy their time together without risking their safety.

How to Use Oral Condoms

Oral sex condoms are sheets of latex that you place over the genital area that you are going to be performing oral sex upon. Once you have carefully opened the wrapper, you place the dental dam sheet over the vagina and anus and then you use the dam as a barrier between your mouth and the genitals.

Other Things to be Aware of With Oral Condoms

Verify the condom's expiration date. If the condom's packaging is ripped or broken, you shouldn't use it. Always look for any visible issues, such as small holes or stiffness.

Latex is also used to make many oral condoms. If you think you might be allergic to latex, you should examine the package before making a purchase.

Always use a fresh condom for each sexual adventure, never try to re-use your condoms and use a safe lubricant that won't break or react badly with your condom, causing the latex to break down. If the condom breaks through incorrect usage or storage, it will not protect you or your partner against STIs.
