In use for over 4,000 years, condoms were once made
of animal intestines, protecting ancient Egyptians, Babylonians and Romans against
"evil spirits". Casanova, the famous lover, made condoms popular in the
eighteenth century, as he chronicled his exploits in a series of twelve books. Condoms
took on the nickname "rubbers" in the 1840s, after Charles Goodyear patented the
vulcanization of rubber, which allowed condoms to be inexpensively mass-produced.
Up to the early 1960s, condoms were used, but never
discussed. During the sexual revolution of the 1960s, condom use dropped off as more
people engaged in free love without thought of repercussions. After the onset of the HIV
epidemic in the 1980s, condoms became a necessary component to intercourse. Today, most
people would never consider having non-monogamous intercourse without a condom.
Condoms are one of the most effective
forms of birth control available, preventing pregnancy 98% of the time when used
correctly. Classified as a "barrier method," condoms act as a shield between you
and your partner, preventing sperm from getting out and infection from getting in.
When used correctly, condoms are
effective 99% of the time at preventing the transmission of most infections, including
vaginitis, trichomoniasis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), gonorrhea, chlamydia,
syphilis, chancroid and HIV. Condoms offer some protection against the human papilloma
virus (HPV), which can cause genital warts, the herpes simplex virus, which causes genital
herpes, and the hepatitis-B virus.
