When women used to be depressed or were not “taking care of their men” properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments.

There are signs of crosses on the packaging that may indicate how many times the condoms were used before by the owner. And if you look closely you can even find the manufacturer.:

Yuck! Tapeworms as a diet aid... "In fact, the tapeworm is the modern era’s first diet aid. The tapeworm diet got its start in the Victorian era when wealthy fashionistas began to look for ways to string those corsets tighter and tighter. Later, this weight loss method really picked up steam in the 1920′s when Flappers started to look for ways to get rid of those pesky, feminine curves.":
