Dental dams are a bit difficult to locate sometimes. They can be bought in some adult shops, or ordered online. Or, if you can't find any actual dental dams, you can make perfectly good DIY ones with stuff you already have.

Basically there are two ways to go about this...

Option 1 - Get a new condom (you can even use a flavored one if you like), open the package and unroll. Now, cut down the length of the condom. This can then be held over the genital region. Apply a little lube to the side that will be placed against your body, and you're good to go.

Option 2 - Get some plastic wrap. Saran Wrap, Glad Wrap, whatever brand you happen to prefer. Don't get the kind that's specially designed for microwave use, the holes in the plastic are too large to provide any protection for you. Apply a little lube to the side that will be placed against your body, and you're good to go. Additionally, if you partner prefers some flavoring, you can put some flavored lube (remember, water-based, condom-safe lubes only!) on the side that will be nearest his/her mouth (oh, and generally it's best to only use flavored lube on the outside of the dam...putting it against your vulva could encourage a yeast infection).
