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
