If you pour water into a condom, then it can serve instead of a flask. If you put documents in it during a flood, they will surely remain dry. But you can use it for its intended purpose …
27% of men are still embarrassed to buy condoms, and 75% believe that they worsen the taste of love joys. All of them are mistaken! It’s time to forget the statement of our ironic grandmothers who compared the use of condoms of the time with the manner of “accepting a friend in a raincoat.” Today, materials that resemble insulating tape in thickness are no longer used to make condoms. Modern latex material is exceptionally thin and at the same time strong enough to dispel another myth, which, according to the same poll, 64% of men retain faith in, according to the same survey: “condoms are torn.” And finally, the last argument of skeptics: “condoms slip off.” Studies show that this happens when men misuse them. If you left a small gap at the end of the condom, did not unfold it to the base, did not remove it immediately after ejaculation, blame yourself. By the way. 20-year-old boys are 2 times more likely to use condoms than 30-year-old and 40-year-old survey participants.
The condom of antiquity The history of this item has been lost for centuries, long time ago it occurred to men that it would be nice to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases. Indeed, in the Middle Ages there were frequent epidemics of syphilis, which mowed people no worse than the plague. It was then that the first condoms arose, which were simply … fish bubbles.
The Italian anatomist Gabriele Fallopius, who lived in the 16th century, offered his patients a linen cover to protect against syphilis. As a result, out of 1,100 men who took advantage of the invention, not one was infected. In the 17th century, condoms from the lamb caecum were invented in France. And since the end of the last century, thin rubber has been used to make a condom.
But there is a long way to go: before our eyes, a dramatic change has occurred with a condom. Of course, we didn’t see fish bubbles and linen bags, but we perfectly remember the “item No. 2”, which smelled sadly of rubber, at a price of 2 kopecks apiece. It constantly disappeared from the shelves due to shortages and lack of competition. Do you know, by the way, where did this serial number come from? There was a classification of rubber products, according to which No. 1 was assigned to gas masks, and No. 2 to condoms.
Condom in the USSR. The objects of various shapes and colors that can be seen on the pharmacy window today have only a distant resemblance to “product No. 2”. The condom has made a dizzying career. From a purely utilitarian contraceptive, AIDS protection. hepatitis B and a whole bunch of sexually transmitted infections, he turned into an element of a love game. Boredom and habit are two things that make an intimate life monotonous and uninteresting. Why not add variety to moments of intimacy? Today – a green condom, tomorrow – orange, the day after tomorrow – embossed, with pimples, rings, antennae … According to sexopathologists, they bring newness to the sensations of women, contribute to the maximum mood for intimacy.
The first thing to consider when choosing a condom is its size. In Russia, the easiest way to find condoms is the European standard – with a diameter of 33 mm. But for the wedding night it’s better to stock up on a slightly larger condom: it will be easier to handle. Be sure to pay attention to the release date and expiration date, which are usually affixed to the packaging, expired condoms lose their strength.
On the French Riviera, a condom is served with a cup of coffee in all bars and restaurants. This is how the nationwide AIDS program is implemented, during which it is planned to distribute a million condoms. Now in Europe there is a wide campaign for the use of the so-called Dutch double – the simultaneous use of hormonal contraceptives and a condom in order to achieve safe sex.
Making love is the most popular way to spend time with our compatriots. 40% of Russians prefer sex to a country trip, a party with friends, sports entertainment.
Passionate and enterprising lovers, they feel relaxed and far beyond the bedroom. 6 out of 10 adults in Russia had sex in the bathroom, 4 out of 10 in the shower, and one in three in the kitchen.
Russians indulge in amorous pleasures 131 times a year on average (only the French are more active – 141 times and Americans – 138 times), but on average no more than 12 minutes. The most hardy Americans – 28.1 minutes.
A date requires serious preparation – at least a condom should be at hand at the right time. On the first evening, 10% of Russians are ready to take decisive action, and a quarter of those surveyed are ready during the first week of acquaintance.
