The Complete History of Condoms in One Amazing Lo-Fi Video

Pin it

This guy's parents probably had to work that night. 

Condoms are the tits. Well, they're the thin (most-times) latex penis wraps, but still — they're friggin' amazing. Aside from keeping babies at bay and sex-havers healthy, condoms have also proven themselves throughout history, persevering through wars, bans, and even the 1980s. 

As hilariously illustrated in the video below (and linked here), condoms have been in use for 12,000 to 15,000 years. There's even a cave painting to prove it. It's in France so, no real surprise. These B-movie dioramas are just about as crude. Not to say those aren't a great teaching method. They're no Sandwich Book Report, but still, wouldn't the world be a better place if more history lessons can in the form of simplistic shoe box scenes? The Taking of Versailles, for example?
