Casanova's Condoms by Laura Essendine NEW!

Whilst you wait for the novels to put in an appearance, I'm uploading a selection of short articles and e-books to LULU.

The first, Casanova's Condoms, is a light-hearted romp through the history of contraception from powdered crocodile dung to the invention of the condom. Find out what the Ancient Greeks kept in their bedside drawers. What did a Roman condom look like? How did the Egyptians stop themselves becoming mummies?

In this less than serious look at the history of birth control you'll find women crouching over pots of steaming onions, wooden diaphrams and the application of camel spit to unmentionable places. After reading this, you'll be soooo grateful for the invention of polyurethane.

Did you know that the most famous gynaecologist in history recommended jumping backwards to prevent conception. Or that Marie Stopes wrote her famous book, Married Love, whilst still a virgin? Or that Casanova called his condom his English Riding Coat?

Just some of the fascinating facts about contraception to be found in Casanova's Condoms. Click the link to order today. http://www.lulu.com/content/3340705
