Ask An Educator: Safer Rimming

10 Oct

“How should I clean my mouth after rimming, and how long should I wait after rimming before I kiss my partner on the mouth, perform oral sex on him or her, etc. I know that A2M ( Ass To Mouth), is very common in porn, but it is actually a very unhygienic practice.”

latex dental damRimming, for those unfamiliar with it, is the practice of using one’s tongue to stimulate the outer sphincter (and, occasional, the interior) of the anus. It can be an intensely pleasurable and intimate act but it does carry some risk with it. As the questioner noted above, A2M (ass to mouth) can be really unhygienic because of the possibility of transferring bacteria & STIs present in the anus to the mouth . A2V (ass to vagina) is also a no go because the bacteria in the ass can cause yeast infections and UTIs if introduced to the vagina.

We HIGHLY recommend using a dental dam if you enjoy rimming. A dental dam is a large, thin sheet of latex (non latex variations are also available) that is placed right over the anus and you can rim through it. This will eliminate any transfer of bacteria as well the transmission of STIs. Don’t have a dental dam? You can cut a condom down one side and turn that into a sheet as well. If you insist on rimming without a dental dam, you should rinse your mouth with full strength Lysterine for at least 30 seconds and then wash around the mouth area. This should kill off any bacteria but it is unlikely that it will kill any STIs so be aware of that. Our advice – stay safe and just use a dam!
