Q.

What is dental dam

I saw mention of this in the sexology and it was used in the same sentence as condoms. The contaxt in which it was used gave me the impression that it may be used during oral sex. Can you tell me what it is and what can it be used for? Also, where can one get it?

A dental dam is a piece of latex used to isolate an area of the mouth the dentist is working on- i am not aware of any other uses besides these.
this is obtainable from dental suppliers- they are not available t othe public
