It is a type of contraception that protects against the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases and prevents conception.


In 1850, mass production of rubber condoms began. Charles Goodyear was an American inventor and chemist and in 1839 he discovered a way of vulcanizing rubber. He patented this method in 1844. Another was Thomas Hancock Englishman, who in November 1842 patented vulcanization of rubber. They both started a condom revolution.

The first rubber condoms were expensive and therefore cleaned. The men had to have a drying rack, cream and powder for anti-sticking. They were used repeatedly.

In 1880, latex condoms appeared, which were cheaper and thinner.

In the 19th century the Catholic Church is against condoms. In the US, in 1868, a campaign against condoms began, and five years later, Congress banned their sale.

In 1957 the first lubricated condoms were sold.

Today condoms are made not only of latex but also of polyethylene or polyurethane. These materials are intended for people who are allergic to latex. Nowadays there are not only men's but also women's condoms.

The condom is wrapped in foil or plastic wrap and is in a coiled form. It is applied to the tip of the penis and then unfolded on the erect penis to the root. It is important to leave some space for semen. After using the condom, it is advisable to make a knot on the condom and throw it in the trash.

Today's condoms are disposable and made of different materials. Female condoms are used repeatedly.

The condom can hold 12 liters of water or 30 liters of air before it breaks. About 8,500,000,000 condoms are used annually in the world. German Jan Vincenz Krause invented a condom in a spray, but the problem was that the spray dries for several minutes.
