The first known contraceptive was crocodile dung, used by the Egyptians in 2000 B.C. It was replaced with elephant droppings when they realized it wouldn't work. Who knew?
So did the elephant droppings work? If they did, I can save myself a fortune on condoms . .
Yeah and didn't they use sheep skin for condoms after the middle ages? (I'm too lazy to look it up) Antiquated contraceptives seem to be an especially gross subject.
You can still buy sheep skin condoms in stores. There are a lot of people allergic to latex.
I'd hate to experience that allergic reaction- ouch!
Haha..my friend put a condom on at a party as a joke and his penis got sooo swollen. He had no idea he was allergic to condoms lol
are these contracetives for men only? or for women also? or can be both lololol
*gets a comfortable chair, sits down and reads all these interesting forum threads on tampons, nocturnal happenings, pornography and now, contraceptives!*
I'm still scratchin my head trying to figure out how they used shit for that. LOL did the man rub it on his weener?
I actually goggled the subject. I couldn't find anything about poop though there were some strange behaviour which of course didn't work. Perhaps the most effective method in acient times was to continue breast feeding as long as possible. This method worked up to 3 years after birth. There was also different spermicides used as early as 1550 BC which were effective.

I liked the one where the Grand Tetons means, Big Tits! I really wonder if that is true.
Yes, I was aware of this, and crocodile dung was used by women, as a cervix plug.
RKHenry, yes, that is the correct translation of Grand Tetons. They were named by French explorers, what else would you expect?
By the way, there is also a mountain in the area named 'Mary's Nipple.'
Oh goodness that is too funny. Mary's nipple? What made them think of that as a name?
and who do you suppose was the first to suggest putting poo poo in hoo ha?? A man I'm guessing. And what do you suppose the women of the village thought when Joe Blow presented this idea to them. I wonder if he got a healthy doe of crocodile dung where the sun don't shine?

Should you leave condoms in your car, even if it's a hot day?I know you shouldn't keep them in your wallet but then again not extreme temperatures either.

What would you do if you found condoms in your 16 year old teenager's clothes?Would you be glad that she or he is at least using protection? Would you confront her or him? Act like you know nothing? Would your response differ based upon it being your daughter or your son?
