A website about living in France has an article about the town of Condom, located in Gascony. The author notes the notoriety of the name, comparing it other names such as Intercourse, PA, and Poo in Spain. The article goes on to mention the town’s other interesting points, such as its fine dining establishment, its cathedral, and its medieval market. The article is accompanied by color photographs of various attractions, including statues of the Three Musketeers.
“Taking advantage of the incidental relationship between Condom’s name and the English word for a prophylactic, in the late nineties, a local initiative led to the opening of a museum of contraceptives.”
