This box of ‘Yamabuki Wrinkle’ condoms contains three beautifully wrapped packets. It was made in Japan in the 1970s. Each condom packet opens to reveal a risqué image. The box also contains two erotic holographic cards. Condoms are a common contraceptive in Japan. State approval for the prescription of the contraceptive pill in Japan was only given in 1999. This was years later than in most other countries.
