    If there's a better forum somewhere on this, please suggest.

    These are *TWO DIFFERENT* topics that came up about safe sex, contraception, condoms, and related. I'm suppose to tell a few friends about what I can find out.

    Can anyone here tell me about, or provide links to:

    Question #1: For people who have latex-allergies, what other barrier methods (safe sex for disease prevention as well as contraceptive purposes) are there to choose from?

    Question #2: Where does one find latex dental dams? These aren't sold at pharmacies like in the condom aisle and don't seem to be available at adult-oriented stores, but we've heard about these. (Yes, we've heard about cutting regular latex condoms for the purpose, but we still want to know about how to get dental dams for future purposes.)

    Thanks.

    Non-latex condoms and Nitrile products.

    #2
    A good adult store should offer these products.
    If not, Goodvibes and Babeland are two really good adult stores to try. Both offer retail locations and an online store.

    A sheet of Saran Wrap does everything a dental dam does when used properly, is much more available and much less expensive.
