The condom - made originally of linen - was invented in the early 1500's.

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..

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!!).

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 I thought that they were originally made from um...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."

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.

geez...

Ow...

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?
