Yes. They are a dear friend of mine.
who actually uses those things?
i think sex is best without them.
Not if you're as fertile as me, yo. It feels better, until the mornign sickness hits.
that's because, by then, they knew that abstinence doesn't work...i mean even in 1500 mary had already had jesus and she was a virgin...so, remember, abstinence doesn't work, use a condom
Right. Just keep one in all the time? It also works as a tampon if it's made out of linen..
wtf linen worked? I saw a thing on TV once that said in ancient egypt girls would stuff linen up there or even dirt to stop from getting pregnant..
pfft... if I were a sperm, I'd penetrate that linen like a mofo.
it's kind of like back in the day when people wrapped cotton around twigs and used them for tampons (OWWW!!).
hahaha this reminde me of a pick up line.
here it is,
helan was so beautiful it made the trojins get in a hourse, your so beautiful you make me want to climb in to a trojin. (sp)
Hahahaha. I have to tell my boyfriend that one. :P
I thought anceint Egyptians did it first? But yeah, that so wouldn't work.
Did they? Not according to my book. *shrug* Books are wrong often.
Linen?! How's that work? That sounds extremely unpleasant. I thought that they were originally made from um... random animal intestines... Oh, I just found this website! http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/condoms/HQ00463"Condoms are nothing new. The earliest illustration of one is more than 3,000 years old. Early condoms were made of linen or the intestines of fish or animals."
*blink* Interesting... Hmm. silly book lied to me.
Um, I heard that the ancient egyptions made condoms too, but that was a while before the 1500's
It appears they did. I wonder why my book told me this.
I've heard of all sorts of weird, ancient contriseptives... The most affective was in France; a woman would insert half a lemon up into her vagina like a diaphram. The lemon would act as a diaphram and the acidic juice as a spermicide... Ouch though.
ooh. ouch! Is lemon juice really strong enough to kill sperm? I doubt it. crazy French.
I can't imagine that linen would be very effective. Or pleasant. Seriously, just whack off with a sheet wrapped around your hand, and leave the woman alone.
that had to feel good. ouch D:
Some people even attatched tassels to the ends of them...
And maybe by condom they mean like...there was an official or common way of making them or something? I mean...the Egyptians used a variety of stuff but not actual "condoms"...as far as animal intestines...sure i guess that works...but is that an actual "condom". Maybe the book considers a condom as a man-made contreceptive or something?
That's what I was wondering.
