The famous phrase "There is no sex in the USSR" was coined during the broadcast between Boston and Leningrad back in the USSR. Female citizens of Boston and their Leningrad interlocutors asked lots of questions, wanting to know everything about women's lives on both sides of the Iron Curtain.. The item on sale proves of the fact that there was sex in the USSR.Rubber condoms, 2 pcs in one pack. Inscription on the package (translated from the russian). RSFSR (Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic).
Bakovskiy plant of rubber products. On the reverse side there is a stamp of Quality Control Department - OTK (technical control department). Ask anyone who lived in the Soviet Union what'product #2' is, and they will immediately laugh and tell you that this is what condoms were known as back then. The thing is that, at first, condoms were manufactured at just one factory in the whole of the USSR - the Bakovsky factory of rubber goods - located in Moscow Region, which made only two types of products: condoms ('product #2') and... Gas masks (yes, you guessed it right.
The Bakovsky factory began operating in the late 1930s. According to some sources, the production of condoms was supported by senior Communist Party figure and close associate of Joseph Stalin, Lavrentiy Beria. The Bakovsky factory produced about 200 million units of'products #2' a year. Later, condoms also began to be manufactured in factories in Kiev and Armavir.Soviet condoms were very different from modern-day ones: they were made of rubber and were not lubricated. Instead, they were covered with talcum powder.
Their smell was not conducive to a romantic atmosphere, either. Additionally, these condoms were not too strong in the sensitivity department: by state standards at the time, the rubber was supposed to be 0.09 mm thick. A condition on a REAL photo.
