110-year old reusable condoms made from fish bladder (used)
Condoms and the idea of protected sex have been around for a while now, but what might amaze you is how much someone might pay for these used condoms made from fish bladder. Austrian Dorotheum, housed an auction for these five condoms.These condoms could be reused about ten times each.
If you look at the box, there are signs of crosses on the packaging that may indicate how many times the condoms were used before by the owner. You would think that would drive the price down, but no, they sold for 2000 Euros.
hold on baby, let me slip a FISH BLADDER right oN MY DICK so i can FUCK YOU WITH IT
Also, let me save it for later so we can use it again

The Last Japanese Mermaids
For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.
In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence
there’s a fantastic Matthew Barney (Bjork’s husband) film that has some of these women in discovering a piece of ambergris
