How To Turn a latex glove into a Safer Sex barrier



These simple steps will turn a latex glove into a safer sex barrier.

Kathy Belge
Lesbians are at risk for sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV and AIDS. A latex glove can be used to protect yourself and your partner during oral sex.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 5 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Cut 4 fingers off glove, leaving the thumb in place.
  2. Slit up the side opposite the thumb.
  3. Rinse talcum off glove.
  4. Put some water-base lubricant on the side with the thumb protruding.
  5. Place the lubricated side on your partner's vulva.
  6. Hold the glove in place with both hands, or have your partner hold it covering her labia.
  7. Use your tongue to stimulate your partner. Insert your tongue into the thumb for extra fun.
  8. After sex, be sure to dispose of glove safely. Turn it inside out and wash your hands. Only use each glove once.


  1. Be sure to use only water-base lubricants.
  2. If you have an allergy to latex, you can purchase non-latex surgical gloves.
