We’re gotten a quite a few questions about this whole dental dam bizz! So, for all you innovators out there, we’ve decided to follow up on exactly how to make your own dental dam.

Lucky for you…and me…it’s extremely easy.   Follow the steps below:

Cause you could tear a whole in it, making it less effective in pregnancy and STI prevention). But apparently this chick has the art of making a dental dam down to a science…and all you need is a condom, no scissors necessary.
