Dental dams are flat sheets of latex which are put over the vulva when performing oral sex on a woman (they can also be put over the anus for rimming).
They do seem to be harder to get hold of in the UK, but I've found that you can get the Glyde ones (a really good brand) in the post from http://www.memailorder.com/. And if you're in London, Sh! (the women-owned sex shop in Coronet St. ) stocks them. If you can't get hold of a dam when you need one, you can easily make one by slicing open a condom, or use cling film (what the Americans call "Saran wrap").
Ok, I'm sorry if I sound extreamly naive... but I too am in the UK and have NEVER heard of dental dams before. I also have never heard that a glove should be used when fingering a girl... But now, I am enlightened
