Condoms from another era

Posted by Condomologist on June 3, 2009

Author John Crowley reflects on his condom research while writing historical fiction, making sure he gets the terminology from the WWII era just right. The fruits of his labor include some interesting finds, among them some paper envelopes that once contained johnnies (as a British sex historian he communicated with calls them), which were once available as collectibles on ebay. My pick of the litter is the one seen below — because I’m a sucker for all things French — the text of which loosely translates into “Let your love flourish (or grow).”
