Tai's problem...
« on: 09 Oct 2008, 07:22 »

...is easily resolved.  Sue Johanson suggests using plastic wrap.

Ta-da!

There are some non-latex gloves, exactly for people allergic to said rubbery substance ;P

If Tai is allergic to latex and doesn't know about cutting a latex-free nitrile glove to make a safer-sex barrier, you've gotta wonder whether she's infection-free at this point.

Honestly, I never even considered dental dams at all until I went to an Out@Stout meeting and our president (who is organizing a Safe Sex talk for the LGBT Month, later this month) said something like "I think everyone needs to know how to use condoms and dental dams"...and I'm like, "Wow, I never thought about lesbians needing to have safe sex too..." I'm sure Tai is -careful-, she just chooses to have unprotected sex with people she knows well (or well enough...) then to take a precaution due to her allergy.

And why do we always have to tear down these kinds of topics in the comic?? I mean seriously...it's a -comic-. It's not really meant to be thought provoking (at least not this way...)

I hate to be a dick and ruin a good premise but you can get polyurethane condoms and i presume polyurethane dental dams (or make polyurethane dental dams from polyurethane condoms) for people who are allergic to latex....

Well, Tai is a lesbian, so condoms aren't really her problem...
And no, I have never heard of Polyurethane dental dams. I'm sure there are nitril ones, but still...

Having a latex allergy can be a bitch (trust me, I have one). You can't accept (well you can, but you can't use them) free condoms, polyurethane isn't as elastic as latex and more susceptible to breakage, and they aren't PROVEN to 100% protect against STDs, even when used properly. They are pretty sure that they do, but they're not totally positive. Or at least that's what I heard the last time I read up on it. ...I feel as though I've had this discussion before.


Edit: Wiki can answer everything. For those of us with latex allergies, dental dams are also made of silicone.
But silicone tastes yucky...blegh.

Latex doesn't taste great either. Dental dams aren't just for lesbians by the way.
