Prostitution is often called ``the oldest profession``. Because effective contraception is a relatively recent development, were prostitutes constantly pregnant in the past?

it isn't that relatively new and neither is abortion.

It is if you consider the amount of time there have been prostitutes about, they were about before Jesus. God think of the STD's

STD's probably came later. And contraception probably did exist, in the form of plants and whatnot.

Hence the term 'sheepskin contraceptives'...

do you think that being the harlot women that they were, the possibilites of twins from two different men were higher?

not only were contraceptive used, however primitive, due to nutrition insufficiencies, many pregnacies miscarried before they knew they were pregnant

It still doesn't explain why your mom got I mean sheep intestine condoms are great!

Maybe there was a higher rate of infertility in women.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/22/02 - 2:48:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
of course not there were and if you know the right herds still are natural ways of contraception as well as certain abortion concoctions
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/22/02 - 4:25:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
And rather unnatural ways too.

From the earlier diaries of James Boswell c.1763 At the bottom of Hamarket I picked up a strong, jolly young damsel, and taking her under the arm I conducted her to Westminster Bridge, and then in armour complete I did engage her upon the noble edifice. The whim of doing it there with the Thames rolling beneath us amused me greatly.

A lot of the methods of abortion often resulted in sterility, if they didn't kill the mother outright.

Oddly enough, Motherhood is the second oldest profession.
17 yrs ago - Friday 5/16/03 - 12:56:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I thought it was the other way around, motherhood being first.

Women and men used natural contraceptives. For example a piece of dried grape vine would be used as an IUD. Dried sheep intestine would be used as a condom. Crocodile dung mixed with honey was used as a form of spermicide. A squeezed and gouged out half of a lemon would be used as a diaphragm. Don’t ask me why I know all this.

There was this brothel (place where prostitutes hang out) in ACIENT GREECE. There were bath houses and stuff, and drawings on the wall. HONEST I'M NOT JOKIN, I SAW IT ON A PROGRAM ON T.V. There was a sewer underneath full of the skeletons of babies. The women did get pregenant! They had the babies then dumped them in the sewer. Another interesting thing is that there was mainly boys in the sewer, the girls were obviously kept so that they could grow up to become prostitutes.
