Latex gloves and finger cots

Latex gloves and finger cots reduce the risk of HIV transmission via open cuts, sores, lesions, burns or rashes on the hands or fingers during fingering and fisting penetration in the vagina or anus. Care should be taken to prevent holes being made in the glove by fingernails during vigorous activity. Rings should be removed before putting on the glove. Finger cots and gloves made of polyurethane are also available.
