The use of condoms offers substantial protection, but does not guarantee total protection and that while there is no evidence that deep kissing has resulted in transfer of the virus, no one can say that such transmission would be absolutely impossible.
" --The Surgeon General, 1987 I know you won't mind if I ask you to put this on.
It's for your protection as well as mine--Wait.
Wait.
Here, before we rush into anything I've bought a condom for each one of your fingers.
And here-- just a minute--Open up.
I'll help you put this one on, over your tongue.
I was thinking: If we leave these two rolled, you can wear them as patches over your eyes.
