How FDA Approved Oral Underwear Works and Protects Against STDs

Human papillomavirus, syphilis, herpes, gonorrhea and chlamydia are sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that can be spread through intimate oral practices, so Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) approval of underwear for oral sex that protects against STDs opens a new panorama for couples. We explain how it works.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warn that sexual diseases such as human papilloma are highly transmissible orally, and can trigger serious health conditions such as cancer of the mouth, throat, genitals, cervix, and anus.

This ultra-thin latex women’s underwear offers a safe option for couples who like oral sex and also want to protect themselves from STDs. It is called “Lorals” and it is the first time that the FDA has approved effective underwear against this type of disease.

How underwear works for safe oral sex

Unlike other FDA-approved oral dams, which consist of a latex square that fits over the vagina, with Lorals everything is as simple as putting on the panties made of latex that are sold in two models: bikini and shorties.

natural latex briefs block the transmission of body fluids that can cause sexual infections and should be thrown away after just one use, just like a condom. Even heterosexual couples can penetrate on top of the Lorals.

The product can be purchased through the page and each pack of four briefs costs $25 dollars. Her creator, Melanie Cristol, explained that the idea arose during her honeymoon in Mexico, when she found out that he had contracted a sexually transmitted disease and wanted to protect his wife, a cancer survivor, of the infection. After developing more than 20 prototypes, she got the design right and added the vanilla flavor.
