Definition of protected oral sex

May 13, 2005

I am a 3-year-old gay man. Don't have a very active sex life (but have been in two relationships) and have a question about the definition of 'protected oral sex'. Sorry for my naive question but does having protected oral sex with another man mean that one wears some sort of "mouth condom" before performing fellatio... or simply being careful that one does not have cuts, sores, ect in the mouth before performing oral sex... . Confused from Toronto

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Confused from Toronto,

You're "a 3-year-old gay man"???? Dude, you're not even in preschool yet. No wonder you "don't have a very active sex life." Generally we're still trying to get kids your age not to eat paste rather than worry about how to protect their penis popsicle. But to answer your question, for "protected oral sex," the latex condom goes on the penis before the penis comes (so to speak) into anyone's mouth. Now isn't it time you took a break from worry about oral sex and returned to your porta-potty training?

Stay well, you horny little Canuck!
