Hi. I went to LIGALY tonight and me and my friends were messing with my head with a lot of crap. Then they kept telling me to get them sex accessories. Then my friend told me to bring two strawberry flavored condemns. I told him "no I don't plan on having sex with guys." He said I can use it with a girl by putting it on my finger. I told him, it's too big it won't fit. He said I can tie it. But I dunno if its the truth b/c he always changes crap. I dunno what to think. For example, he put lube in his mouth and said it was tooth paste that you jus' put in your mouth and you don't have to brush your teeth, and automatically it cleans your mouth. Then changed that its for sucking. Also, he said he has a vagina on his *** and then says he don't know what it is. Then says other crap. It's so confusing. Is what he said true about the condemns?
Also, are there any kind of dental dams that are flavored? I know it's early to ask this one bc I'm not with anyone. Most teens don't feel that they need to know ahead of time if they're single. But how I am is I always like knowing things ahead of time even if I'm single. That's just me.

There is nothing weird or unusual about wanting to know how things work prior to having the chance to use them.
It sounds like your friend was either pulling your leg or doesn't know very much after safer sex supplies himself.
There are multiple ways that condoms can be used - they prevent pregnancy AND can help prevent against STIs. Condoms can be used on a penis, but they can also be put over sex toys to keep them cleaner or to use between partners. For things that are going into the vagina lubricated, unflavored condoms are what you should be using. The flavored condoms often have sugars and can lead to yeast infections.
Same thing with lubricants - the flavored ones shouldn't be used in the vagina. For things that are going to be inserted using unflavored lube is safest. Lube has nothing to do with toothpaste.
Dental dams are a little different than condoms - they are usually not lubricated. They are just thin squares of latex (there are non-latex ones available too) that you hold in place during use.
There are a lot of articles on the scarleteen website that answer a lot of your questions. Here's a good one to start with for answers about safer sex supplies.
