AbstractA condom designed for oral-genital sex includes, in one aspect, a device adapted to be worn in the mouth of the person practicing oral sex. The device includes a tubular member having one closed end and formed of thin, pliant, impervious material. Joined to the open end of the tubular member are two or three flanges extending generally radially outwardly and spaced closely together. The flanges are curved out of a plane transverse to the axis of the tubular member to define a channel adapted to receive the upper and lower lips of an average person. The device is gripped by placing the lips within the channel, and closing the jaws slightly to compress and retain the open end of the device. The tubular member may be formed to extend into the mouth of the wearer, for the purpose of performing fellatio. A penis may be inserted into the tubular member without making contact with the lips or mouth or tongue of the wearer. In an alternative form of the invention, the tubular member may extend outwardly from the flanges and the mouth, so that the tongue of the wearer may be extended into the tubular member to perform cunnilingus without making direct contact with the vulva. In another aspect of the invention, there is provided a shield formed as a planar oval from pliant, impervious material, the shield being shaped and adapted to be placed over the genital area. The shield includes a central opening from which a tubular condom extends, so that the assembly may be employed for oral sexual contact as well as intercourse without the risk of skin-to-skin contact. In a modification of this embodiment, the shield is provided as a separate component, with a flange surrounding the central opening. The flange is provided with means for engaging and sealing with the outer circumferential edge portion of a typical prior art male condom, so that the shield may be joined temporarily to a commercially available condom for the practice of safe sex.
