I remember reading in a 'Questions and Answers' type thing in the paper that that small pocket in your jeans is actually called the 'johnny' pocket, and is made that size as it used to be used for storing condoms.

I still use mine for a pocket watch, which is what I was told it was for when I was a kid.

Condoms (of sorts) have been around for a couple of thousand years or so. (Well, the ancient egyptians had them anyway)

Nowadays some jeans and slacks are getting mobilephone pockets. Certain men's underwear have pouches. Maybe an overtly condom-specific pocket isn't so outrageous.
