THE CONDOM: The Ultimate Sexual Accessory
Condom from the Latin condere, meaning to hide or to protect.
Egyptians made them out of linen;
Romans out of animal intestines;
the Chinese out of oiled tissue paper;
the Japanese out of horn or leather (hard enough to be used as dildos!);
Italians developed a prophylactic in the 16th century;
Americans founded rubber condoms in the 19th century (that were washable and reusable!); and
in the 20th century, liquid latex was used to create the modern Trojan condom.
Today, in this 21st Century, condoms come in all shapes, textures, colors and flavors...and for both sexes!
You can pick one up at school, at bus stops, night clubs, pharmacies, hotel gift shops, airports...everywhere.
Hell, there is even an APP to find the store nearest you that sells condoms. Will wonders never end?
COMMENT: What's your favorite type of condom? flavor? Do tell.
