Fun Facts: Condoms

Did you know...?

The condom was invented in 1786 by Muslim clerics in an effort at population control.

The first condoms were made from the inner lining of goat intestines.

That much is common knowledge, but did you know that the design was improved upon in 1818 by the Brits?

What they did was remove the intestines from the goat prior to using the lining as a condom.

I think we all owe a debt of gratitude to British ingenuity.

The impatient ghost of Robert Shaw says, "What the bloody hell is a Muslim?"
