Mr. Brewster - 60"
"If Mr. Brewster put up with Geronimo, you can put use a condom.I just don't know why young people complain about having to wear condoms against HIV virus and AIDS. Look what I had to put up with. I called it Geronimo - my friend. Compared with the condoms of today it was like wearing an inner tube of a cycle. It's wasn't disposable like today's condoms. It was designed to be used again and again. When the action was finished I used to have to wash it, dry it and powder it with French chalk, and put it by for a future lucky day. It was like having a bath with your socks on. But it never stopped me in no way."
