Definition

A rubber is a condom, which is a device typically worn by males to reduce the chance of pregnancy or STI during sexual intercourse. The term is commonly used by teenagers and young adults when talking about sex.

The name comes from the material that was originally used to make the condom in the 1800s and early 1900s. However, the material has changed over the years to latex, polyurethane, and polyisoprene. It is listed on the WHO list of "Essential Medicines."

Example
"Do you have a rubber I could borrow?
No way man, you shouldn't be having sex until you're married."
