A pleasant British woman narrates the drastic measures that women have resorted to in order to avoid getting pregnant over the course of history, in this informative video by Egender Health.
Titled 'History's Worst Contraceptives,' the video provides absolutely horrifying bits of trivia. For instance, did you know that in ancient Egypt, women concocted a spermicide from crocodile waste and honey? Or that in Europe, in the Middle Ages, women strapped weasel testicles to their body in an effort to avoid pregnancy? Oh, and it gets much, much worse; so bad, in fact, that you might have to go and lovingly cradle your birth control and condoms, and thank God they are made from latex and not pig intestines.
The facts are presented us as part of the WTFP?! initiative, dedicated to providing the 220+ million women who are living without contraceptive or family planning access, with just that -- so we don't have to resort to home-made birth control measures, again.
