The epilogue outlines the interwar legacies of the contraceptive industry and reveals how its structures provided the foundations for the contraceptive Pill and the mass-contraceptive industry of the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Companies and brands in this trade that we now consider to be largely reliable, authoritative and trustworthy, such as Durex, played no small part in establishing their own reputations during the period under study, although as the epilogue will demonstrate, many of the commercial practices of today’s contraceptive firms are no less questionable than those of the interwar period.
