American Sign Language: "rubber"

Hold an "x" hand near your upper right cheek (if you are right handed. Lefties do it on the left.)
 Move the hand forward and down.  The "X" brushes alongside the cheek as you move it forward and down. Repeat the movement.


This sign is not the same as "condom."  The sign "CONDOM" is done by holding up the non-dominant index finger as if representing an banana.  And then sliding the "hook" of your dominant "X" hand down the length of the banana

Well, actually some folks do use the sign RUBBER to mean either the material or the prophylactic. So, if you are about to get romantic, don't go getting into an argument about the "right" use of the RUBBER sign -- it would ruin the mood.
