The concept remains the same, the materials have evolved

The world's first condom, dating back to 1640, and displayed at a museum in Austria currently.

via this site...
"The reusable condom dates back to 1640 and is completely intact, as is its orginal users’ manual, written in Latin. The manual suggests that users immerse the condom in warm milk prior to its use to avoid diseases. The antique, found in Lund in Sweden, is made of pig intestine and is one of 250 ancient objects related to sex on display at the Tirolean County Museum in Austria this summer."
