The FDA Just OK'd This Underwear To Prevent STI Spread During Oral


For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration has OK’d a pair of underwear that can be used to prevent STIs during oral sex or oral-anal sex, aka rimming. The thin and stretchy single-use latex panties, called Lorals, have been on the market since 2018 and have been marketed in the past for people who want to feel sensation but also be covered during oral sex.

To get the new FDA clearance for STI prevention, the company had to prove that Lorals were equivalent or an improvement upon the existing dental dam, a little-known latex or polyurethane barrier method that few people use anyway.
