Contraceptive Did You Know 4

The oldest English condoms were found whilst archaeologists were excavating the cesspit of Dudley Castle in the 1980s.

They found five animal membranes, probably sheep or pig intestines, that had been cleaned and stretched into shape.

These condoms were thought to date from the mid-600s.

Why not follow this link to buy Casanova's Condoms on for more fascinating facts?
