do football players use a dental dam??

before you even start with me, no, i most certainly did NOT ask that question...i can, however, state that i did hear several crickets after that question...

this morning as my sister was watching good morning america, she paid special attention to the part about the increase in oral cancers that are linked to the HPV...they are suggesting that there is an increase due to the fact that many people are engaging in unprotected oral sex...

anyhow, as we were in the car, she asks "i can see how you would use protection when going down on a guy, you'd use a condom or something, right?"...or something, lol...

yes, i told her, that is why they also suggest using a dental dam...she paused for a moment...

"do football players use a dental dam?...to protect their mouths when they play?"

...

after several long seconds, i felt i was calm enough that i would not start laughing at her and i exlained what it was that football players use and what a dental was....she was mortified...she said "i am so glad i asked you because i was going to ask New Guy if he used a dental dam when he played football!"

oh, boy...
