Sexy is Creative Ideas
Worlds Oldest Condom ?
The oldest condom in the world to still exist was recently found in Lund, Sweden, and was last used around 1640 AD, having been made from some pretty endurable pig intestine. The 377 year old crusted condom was apparently reusable and came with an owner’s manual written in Latin (“veni vidi cito”). The instructions recommended washing the condom in warm milk after use as if the scrodded lactose left in it by the jolly old ejaculating soul wasn’t milk enough !
While it seems that most condoms were made from animal intestines, some accounts describe rubbers made of linen. Casanova, the legendary 19th century womanizer was said to have used linen condoms regularly. He referred to them as “Redingote Anglaise” meaning “English Riding Coat”.
Well, we’ve come a long way from fish and animal intestines for protecting “ye olde scrod” from infection and unwanted little ones while in the pursuit of sexual pleasure. From Vegan-non toxic certified chemical free fair traded contraceptives made from rubber trees, to Latex raincoats (which may contain an unvegan like milk protein called casein commonly used in processed foods), to Lambskin condoms, which are made from sheep intestines, considered by many to be great for protection against unwanted pregnancies, but not the choice for protection against viral diseases, to raincoats made from Polyisoprene, a synthetic version of latex, and Polyurethane love gloves, which are thin plastic membranes believed to offer greater sensation and sensitivity because of their thinness (faster heat transfer ).
“To Lube or not to lube ?”
“Lube or not to lube….that is the question”… not exactly the question asked by Prince Hamlet in Shakespeare’s play, however many people today ponder that arid question, with many variables to consider. There’s water based, silicon, vegetable oils, and don’t forget spit…all ranging from tasteless (not necessarily referring to “spit” as being a tasteless idea alternative) to edible, in myriad colors, consistencies and flavors all available in the pursuit of slippery pleasure and comfort………………less friction and more sensation.
