Heyy, she doesnt floss but she doesnt have any gaps in her teeth? Would this matter. I literally floss after every meal maybe it should be a team activity lol. If flossing was the answer after all this lol i may scream
I actually read about this 3 years ago in the book "The Gluten Free Bible" and remembered it. I dug the book out today and reread it. It's chapter 13 "Sex and the Celiac". It's a story about a man who gets sick from his non celiac wheat eating girlfriend. However, the book spells it out all romantic like. Here's the last paragraph of the story:
"Does Theresa floss and brush her teeth" Byrons mother asked her embarrassed son.
"Well, does she?
"What about her beauty products. they could be making you sick"
Byron was emabarrassed, but promised his mother he would talk to his girlfriend.
Byron explained to Theresa that he was getting sick everytime they got together.
Out went her old cosmetics. In came new gluten free hypo-allergenic lotions, creams,make-up, and pretty new lipsticks that did not change Byron's desire to kiss her. With a lifetime supply of dental floss, and his and hers electric toothbrushes, the young couple found an unlikely and surprising sexy source of togetherness. Teresa washes washes carefully after touching unsafe foods and they have been known to shower together to avoid wasting water and time.
As far as I know, there were no more gluteny incidents and in the spring, Byron proposed, presenting Teresa with a modest diamond solitair she wears with pride. As soon as they finish their degrees, they will have a big fat gluten free wedding and honeymoon in Tesesa's Italian ancestrial village where much brushing, flossing and kissing will go on. The moral is this: not everything you put in your mouth is food. When you are a celiac, the concept of being lovesick takes on a whole new meaning. "Not that there is anything wrong with that" as Jerry Seinfeldt is so fond of saying.
As long as you play it safe, thee is no reason you can't play"
The chapter goes on and on with specifics on cosmetics and hygene before intimacy. It's a pretty long chapter.
The story in the beginning about Teresa and Byron kind of sound like a romance novel.....HAHAHA. but then it gets down to the business of making sure you don't get sick and how to achieve that.
I think it's time to read this book again, I was skimming through it and I think I can learn from it even now, after 3 years..
