  1. Languages beget slang, and slang for sexual terms seems to be particularly creative. “Rubber” is probably the most utilitarian and objective euphemism for condom. However, through the years, condoms have been given a wide range of nicknames, often reflecting the stereotypes or attitudes commonly associated with sexual activity. Just some of the nicknames for condom are:

    • French letter
    • Jimmy hat
    • Gloves
    • Filthy slippers
    • Preservatives
    • Raincoats
    • Hoodies
