Watch a recording of this talk and live experiment in which author and historian Jessica Borge recreates some of the 1960s consumer tests of condoms. Watch her fill an original 1967 Durex Gossamer condom first with air, then with water, from her kitchen.
Jessica also takes you through the history of the London Rubber Company, the original maker of Durex condoms. A pre-recorded interview with John Harvey, a former sales manager at the London Rubber Company, is included, telling you more about the Durex Gossamer condom.
This event was originally livestreamed on Tuesday 8 December.
