A condom of 120 years ago is found

Can a condom become a historical relic? A 120-year-old condom was found in the warehouse near a traditional house in Osaka. It is thought that the model called Yamatogi was sold by the Morishita Jintan company.

It is believed that the warehouse where the contraceptive was found may have been a place of secret erotic encounters. In that historical period it was very common to get infected with syphilis and therefore condoms were used to prevent the spread of these diseases.

Morishita Jintan Yamatogi condoms are also widely used in France. To prove that even in the late 19th century, people cared about sexual health.
