It very well could have been used with a comfort woman....or it could have been used with a girlfriend, or some (consensual) one-night-stand. We know absolutely nothing about who this condom comes from. It's like showing a picture of a German gun and using it as evidence of the Holocaust.
I don't agree. Basically, condoms marked Dotsugeki Ichiban
were used exclusively against confort women. A picture of condom is completely different from that of a German gun. With a German gun, a Wehrmacht soldier could have done a lot of things; shooting Jews, fighting against Soviet partisans, fighting against American soldiers and hunting wild animals. But a Japanese military condom is different.
The Japanese Imperial Army officially provided Japanese soldiers with the original condom called Dotsugeki Ichiban
(Attack Champion) to use in comfort women brothels during World War II. In some rare cases, a few lucky Japanese soldiers might have taken and used military condoms with their girl friends in Japan. But not many.
Former comfot women have said that they witnessed Dotsugeki Ichiban
on the condoms used by Japanese soldiers. It is now proven that their accounts were accurate.
