Another addition to Victorian Sex Factoids

'One "dud" in every box': a myth about contraceptives.

This one is not so much one held today or of recent years about the Victorians and their whacky, whacky sex-lives, it's a canard that was very pervasive throughout society in the early decades of the twentieth century, and can probably be dated back a little further (though of course the great upsurge in the great and the good angsting over the population, its quantity and quality, which probably has some bearing on assumptions about official requirements in this matter, was really during the Edwardian era).
