Fundamentals of Dive-Sex class, latex-grab

His condom burst! I’m fertile! I am SO fucked!

Casino dive-moms: Several women working in our casinos came to me asking that I teach a ‘Fundamentals of Dive-Sex’ course during spring break because they have daughters who will be taking courses at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu this summer and want to ensure they know how to protect themselves during an underwater sexual encounter. West coast girls have been taking summer courses at UH almost forever, but until recently there didn’t appear to be a need for gas-guards as underwater intercourse was fairly rare and if there were serious injuries none seemed to make the headlines. The students I taught will be at the University of Hawaii Manoa campus on the north side of H1 inland from Waikiki, but can easily get to the outer islands on weekend trips.

The Fundamentals of Dive-Sex course I taught included: Being fitted for FemCaps or Reflections flat spring latex diaphragms for use as gas-guards or as one student called her FemCap ‘Flood Insurance’, since its needed to prevent water being forced into the uterus if the vagina floods which, as returning readers know, is very common during underwater penetrative sex. I taught how to correctly insert their gas-guards, what lubricants to use and how to apply them and the use of Ben Wa balls for pelvic muscle toning. All the girls were on Yaz or Beyaz so I didn’t stress the normal need to use a spermicide with their cervical barriers, but they will be using DiveGel+ as their lube which has the O9 spermicide Semécide in it so that was covered. I also taught how to use the FC2 female condom – correct insertion technique and to make sure he reenters inside the sheath if he slips out - if for some reason they couldn’t use their cervical barriers for an underwater encounter.

Latex-Grab: Lastly I taught the girls about latex-grab. That’s where, if both partners are wearing barriers, a lot of their natural lubricant is trapped within each barrier and that is especially true for diaphragms since they cover almost the entire anterior wall of the vagina. An additional complication is if the woman is also on hormonal contraceptives. The progestin in hormonal birth control can dry up the normal vaginal lubricant for some women so that even when aroused they are relatively dry. In addition to the pain involved in having sex while not sufficiently lubricated, a potentially more serious problem is that the friction of the condom tip on the dome of the diaphragm can cause the condom to burst or pull the diaphragm off the cervix leaving her unprotected, or both. Latex-grab is particularly common when a couple is using both a latex condom and latex diaphragm though it can also occur with silicone diaphragms and polyurethane condoms.

The supplies: I provided each student with the necessary supplies for the course as well as what each should need for summer school. They were: a primary cervical barrier either the Reflexions latex flat spring diaphragm (because it is especially difficult to under-thrust) or a FemCap; two 25 count boxes of prefilled 10ml DiveGel+ disposable applicators; two doses of Plan B One-Step in case she forgets to take her pills. Plan B is better in their case since they will need to continue taking their regular birth control pills; a package of 10 FC2 female condoms, which are about $.90 each through our clinic. And since the students are dependents of casino employees they are covered under the casino’s reproductive health care insurance so they could be enrolled in the clinical trial to use DiveGel+.; and finally for the class each student was provided a set of (two individual) one inch diameter .6 oz Pyrex glass vaginal training balls.

Several needed to be SCUBA certified first and the five that ended up in the class I taught were very highly motivated and worked hard to get the technique down correctly so that if necessary they could teach their partners what they needed to get the most from the experience. It’s so nice when I’m working with highly motivated young women. The First summer session at UH Manoa is May 21 – June 29, and the second session July 2 – Aug 10, 2012 and my Vegas girls will stay for both sessions.
