A recent video posted on MSNBC shows a couple of 200-year-old condoms that were discovered in a book in Spain. Pay attention, OSU librarians – with bookmarks like this, Thomspon library would be the most hopping spot on campus!
Just a reminder to always check the expiration date before you put on your “raincoat”. These are “animal skin” condoms, actually made from the lining membranes around the intestines of sheep.
BTW, don’t be too intimidated (or too proud if you’re from Spain) by the size of these condoms – they were held on with a string or ribbon around the base.
