Though contraception may seem to be the invention of modern people worried by overpopulation of the Earth planet, it is not really so. Since the Stone Age people used different techniques to prevent pregnancies; and both men and women were equally involved in this process.
There were no limits to human ingenuity in trying to find the most effective means of contraception. While women experimented on different herbs and other natural products, placed into the vagina to prevent pregnancy, men worked hard to develop their own forms of contraception.
At early ages, ritual dances, performed by shaman round the fire, were the only means to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Later, when people understood the connection between ejaculation and pregnancy, a significant breakthrough was made in developing contraceptives that really worked.
Sheaths, made of animal intestines or oiled silk paper, became the prototype of condoms, the most popular form of male contraception nowadays.
