Great InventionsCondoms

The first condoms were made from the air bladders of fish by Greeks on the island of Crete some 2000 years BC. Later, during the Middle Ages, for a long time the ends of sheep‘s appendices were used for protection. Casanova is the most famous person to have used small linen bags. But it was only when Charles Goodyear invented vulcanisation that condoms really caught on. Great Inventions looks at an innovation with far-reaching implications for society, provoking scandal on the one hand and offering freedom and protection from diseases on the other.
