factoid of the day: Ramses condoms

So, I bought a new trivia book over the weekend.
This one is filled with useless sexual trivia. In the name of my inner dork I will be posting a new useless sexual factoid each day. (I know, I'm excited too!)
But alas, I can't call it the inner dork, that's what Thursday's are for. Therefore, this will be called the factoid of the day. Hence the name of today's post.
Quick like a bunny, sharp like a tac, that's me!


The Ramses brand condom is named after the great pharaoh Ramses II, who fathered over 160 children.

(clearly he was not using condoms) (ironic)

Did you know that some of the first dildos, in many parts of the ancient Mid-eastern world consisted of dried camel dung coated with a hard resin.

Wow. That's... uh... hot... and stuff.

A little tidbit to brighten everyone's day. :)

All I can think of is, "that ain't healthy. Cross contamination. That had to lead to a lot of infections. And the smell. What if it broke off inside? That can't be good....." and there my mind goes.

I am so thankful to be a woman in 2006, for many reasons, but that is one to add.

Actually, camel dung dried in the desert sun would lose its smell after a week or two. The resin used would render the dildo as hard as glass and would probably not break.

But yeah, modern women have it made when it comes to sexual devices.

Party Girl said...

good to know, but still, can't be healthy.

I'll take my 2006 glass dildo, thank you

I still appreciate the dork though!

You two were truly born to dork. I love these little tete-a-tete sessions between you two.

Okay, here's mine: where do you think they came up with the phrase "camel toe?"

Party Girl said...

Ho-Me-G you've got me. is that a challenge or are you gonna fess up?

Jay and I's dorking? I love it. Love it, love it, love it!

Party Girl said...

Ho-me-g: call me slow. I just got that.

Jay said...

I truly am a geek.

I've spent the last hour looking up the etymology of "camel toe".

The only area of consensus is that the phrase is 20 to 25 years old and is American in origin. Beyond that, no solid information.

jay: Have I mentioned how much I love geeks?

Have I mentioned I have a pocket dictionary?
