Merry Widow condoms ($224).

Merry Widow condoms ($224)
The term “merry widow” apparently originates from a 1907 ballet first performed in London. Then at some point condoms were called merry widows, possibly because of a 1920s play of the same name which was apparently chock full of double entendres, but I’m just guessing. I’m a guesser. Then in the 50s Maidenform introduced a short half-cupped strapless corset. called the Merry Widow. So if someone says “let me put on my Merry Widow” you know it’s going to be sexy, at least, and probably not a ballet (zzzzZZZZZZ).
