Condom is a non-oral drug that physically prevents the contact between the penis and the uterus and prevents the combination of sperm and egg, thereby preventing pregnancy. In addition, condoms also prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and AIDS. . With the integration of the global economy and culture, the Chinese people’s concept is becoming more and more open, and Chinese people are increasingly using condoms.
3,000 years ago in ancient Egypt, the earliest form of condoms appeared. This was a kind of ornament called a “condom sleeve”. Wearing a penis sleeve, it was considered a status symbol. Ancient myths and legends confirm the existence of ancient condoms from the side. According to legend, the cursed Minos's semen contains snakes and scorpions. In order to protect his sexual partners, Minos uses a goat's bladder as a female condom. .
The emergence of modern condoms dates back to the 17th century in the United Kingdom. King Condor of the British King Charles II was inspired by the swelled fish, used it on his penis to prevent pregnancy, and dedicated this "invention" to Charles II. He was called "Happy Inventions." "The modern condom was born of this. This also explains why condoms are called "Condom" in English. After this, the constellation of fish gills has undergone continuous improvement, using a softer and lighter cecum of the lamb. After special processing, its shape is close to that of modern condoms.
At the same time, in almost the same period, syphilis was brought into Europe and spread among the nobles and the army. Everyone talked about the "Mei" discoloration. In order to prevent the spread of the disease, the Italian doctor Luo Pio invented a condom made of flax and used it extensively in the nobility and the army. Therefore, some people use this as the origin of modern condoms. However, regardless of whether the inventor of modern condoms was Condeme or Rompaud, the two major roles of condoms have been indisputable facts.
Until the 19th century, vulcanized rubber condoms appeared. By the end of the 19th century, the emergence of natural latex had once again made a qualitative leap in the development of condoms. With the rapid development of science and technology, there are many types of condoms today, and they are even lighter, more comfortable and safer.

Alien condoms are a category of “eye openers” in all sets. The overall point of view is mainly floating point and thread. The design of these condoms is nothing more than to increase friction by adding “foreign bodies” to the condoms to enhance the stimulation of women.
