    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?

      Personally, I don't think it matters what kind of poop you rub on your junk... it will definitely keep the ladies away and therefore have a 100% success rate.

    So did the elephant droppings work? If they did, I can save myself a fortune on condoms . .smile

    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 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.

      Actually that is true! I was there last year! It's an awesome place and I highly recommend visiting Yellowstone!

    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?

        Evidently it was named for a Trap Bar waitress.

    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? lol
