There's a lot we already know about condoms: their ability to prevent STDs and pregnancy; their various styles, colors, and textures; their uncanny ability to break at the worst moments.
But there's a lot we don't know. Like how condoms evolved, how many are given out to Olympian athletes, whether Magnums are really all they're cracked up to be... prepare to be amazed.
Female condoms can be inserted a full eight hours before sex
...although why you'd be compelled to do so is beyond us.
Condoms used to be cost-prohibitive -- and reusable
As early as the 1600s, animal-based condoms were available to the public… for a price. One condom could easily cost a US prostitute three months' pay. So, condoms got reused. A lot. And up until around 1844, when Charles Goodyear (of tire fame) and Thomas Hancock began to mass-produce rubber condoms on the cheap.
