Well, latex gloves are exactly what they sound like: they’re much like the ones you would find at the doctor or dentist’s office.
How do you use Latex Gloves?
Latex gloves can be used for a variety of things. They can be used for any form of manual sex, including fingering or fisting. They’re especially good if one partner has a cut or open sore on their hands or fingers, but would like to finger or fist without exchanging bodily fluids. In addition to that they can be used during kink play that may include exposure to bodily fluids that can transmit STIs. Finally, they can be used as a “do-it-yourself” sex dam. Simply cut the fingers off (not the thumb) and cut it along the side and you get a sheet of latex similar to a normal sex dam. They thumb will even create a little pouch that can be used to integrate food into your play; you can make a game of eating any sort of food (such as honey or chocolate sauce) out of the pouch.
