FDA approves new panties for use during oral sex or other circumstances







This is a story about infections, sex and underwear. More specifically, it is about sexually-transmitted infections, oral sex and ultrathin, super-stretchy, vanilla-flavored panties.

The Food and Drug Administration has authorized the panties to be considered protection against infections that can be transmitted from the vagina or anus during oral sex. It is a first for underwear.

The undies are part of an understudied but important area of sexual health where the few options for protection are considered cumbersome and hardly used.

“Oral sex is not totally risk-free,” said Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo, director of the division of infectious diseases at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She said the need for protective methods was of growing importance because more “teenagers are initiating their first sexual activity with oral sex.” For people of all ages, she added, a protective barrier that is enjoyable to use could “reduce anxiety and increase pleasure around that particular behavior.”

---------------

The idea for damlike undies struck Melanie Cristol after an experience in 2014 during her honeymoon in Mexico with her then-wife. Cristol, then a corporate lawyer, discovered she had an infection that could be sexually transmitted.


-----------

The panties — available as bikinis or shorties — are made of latex that is about as thin as condom material and forms a seal on the inside of the thigh to keep fluids in, Cristol said. The company markets their use for a range of reasons, including during one’s period, when a partner has a scratchy beard or when a person has experienced previous trauma and does not want to be too exposed.

US-based company Lorals is the first underwear brand that specializes in protecting you during oral sex and other forms of outercourse.

The material is very stretchy which allows for not only external stimulation but internal stimulation like fingering, as well. Lorals are single-use and come in two options: ‘Shorties’ and ‘Bikini’s’. Shorties are best for fuller coverage while Bikini’s resemble the standard, Bikini-sized undergarment that covers just the right spots. You can select either option depending on how much you’d like to bare. Both options are for people of all identities.

No matter how you identify, sex can pose some issues, such as sexually transmitted infections. Lorals are currently under FDA review as an STI-protection medical device.

Here are some great reasons to use Loral’s latex underwear:
1. It keeps the exchange of fluids minimal due to the latex material.

2. It can keep things from getting messy during period play.

3. It allows for pleasure, without having to be completely nude if that usually sparks gender dysphoria or body dysphoria.

4. It provides an extra barrier if your partner has a stubbly face or genitals.

5. It acts as a second barrier if your genitals are more sensitive than usual.

3. That should light up Republican legislatures this weekend

"This underwear is not in the Constitution! We'd better ban it before people start wearing it."

"How will we know?"

"Grope and frisk, Governor, grope and frisk."

Late night hosts now have comedy gold.

7. The scent and taste of a woman is part of what the activity is about.

This is going to be replaced by "vanilla?"

9. Two questions . . .

Should I:

1. Forward this to my teenaged granddaughters?

2. Include my daughter (their mother) on the message?

Asking for a friend.

11. No, that would just be weird and creepy

If it actually works, women's health practitioners would talk to their patients about it.
