    I remember my first time buying KY jelly. haha. It was October 31st and I had spent four hours putting on burn victim make up. It looked too dry and my mom was likle "KY jelly will make it look just right." so I went and bought a huge bottle.

    Remember, at that point I still have all the makeup on... So the lady ended up looking at me oddly. It was funny.

    I think buying condoms is great. The fun thing to do when buying condoms is to buy other stuff and watch the expression of the check out person when they ring everything up

    ex. condoms, peanut butter, and a saddle

    (where you can go to buy those three things together, I have no idea, but you get the point right?)

    I work in a shop and I dont care if people buy condoms. What does concern me is when young kids buy em. It feels like there should be some form of age limit but no I just have to feel dirty at the idea of allowing some little chav to screw his 12 year old GF! I do nit care otherwise

    "I think buying condoms is great. The fun thing to do when buying condoms is to buy other stuff and watch the expression of the check out person when they ring everything up."

    Try this combination...

    Condoms, cucumbers (In equal number to the condoms), any kind of jam or salad dressing, and a horror movie. Put them on the counter in that exact order.

    I make it a point to buy really questionable stuff alongside the condoms to make the clerk raise an eyebrow. One time I bought condoms, some sticky tack, wire hangers, and a box of pudding.

    Heh, I`m a man, and I always have one girl condom as well as at least non-latex normal condom with me. I change them every few weeks (either by use or by conscience) and I never was afraid to purchase these. Actually, yeah, I WAS afraid the first time. Then, it dawned on me I should be proud I got a sex life, it`s not something shameful at all for me. And to the ones not using rubber johnnies, I guess it`d be much less shameful to have you (or your friend) having to go to some abortion clinic.

    i hate buying condoms:
    you walk into a shops, wander around for a few minutes to see if theres anything else you need to buy so you`re not just wandering up to the counter empty handed and then when you actually cough `condoms` to a complete strangers behind the counter you`re bombarded by a choice of brands, thicknesses, flavours and sensations and if its your first time or early in your sex life you have no idea whats "good, better or best".
    and they keep them low down on the counter behind them, so if you are asked which ones you want you have to lean over the counter letting everyone in the queue behind you knows you`re picking johnnys.
    its a minefield.

    My friend did a scavenger hunt last year and one of the items on the list was a receipt from a grocery store with only two items on it. KY Jelly and a cucumber hahah

    That being said, I work as a cashier and never find much amusement when people buy condoms. Good for them! Overpopulation is a bitch! I do recall one time though, a guy went through one of the tills with like...a couple kit kat bars, a $6 bouquet of carnations and a box of condoms. After he left, his cashier turned around to me, laughed and said "Good f*cking luck buddy!

    I gotta agree with Hylian4Hire... Have fun with it! When you get to the register, in addition to the condoms, set down a rope and pulley, a large can of Crisco, a box of rubber gloves, a flashlight, and a Big Bad Wolf mask and then just chuckle at the cashier`s response.

    The only way I would feel embarrassed is if someone from like my church walked in or rather my parents. But i wont worry about that for awhile because im not exactly married yet.

    Having never bought a box of condoms (I`m desperately lonely), I`d tell everyone in the store and do twirls in the aisle, clicking my heels as a get to the register. Then, the lady I was gonna score with would see me, I`d turn around, head slumped and put the condoms back on the shelf.

    Oh puh-leeze. I can`t believe men have trouble buying condoms. Isn`t it, if anything, a matter of pride walking up to a cash register, standing proudly with your head held high, and declaring "Yes, I am going to partake in intercourse!"

    Buying pads or tampons, on the other hand, can be sincerely embarrassing. Because all you`re saying then is "Yes, I bleed from my vagina."

    Although I recall a time when I worked at a cash register, and a guy came up to me to ask, in very hushed tones, where the condoms were. Trouble was that it was my first day at that store and I had no idea. The only other cashier happened to be this sweet old lady. So in order not to embarrass him further, I didn`t want to yell out "Hey Marge, where do we keep the condoms?!". Instead I just told him to go ask her himself. Instead, he sheepishly left the store. I hope I didn`t cause anyone to get pregnant.

    Concordia19 : LOL! Yeah ... well, I did not find that very problematic either. I was going grocery shopping and the night before, I did put a box of condoms in my coat, as I was going to my friend for. *cough* anyways, the anti-thief system must`ve still be active in my box because it rang while going away with my grocery bags. I immediately though of the box, got it out, it rang, they scanned it back (they don`t sell condoms anyways) and let me go through. The girls were saying I was thoughtful, asked me if I knew it wasn`t good to keep them in your clothing, I answered them back I knew, and went on my way. Too bad she wasn`t my style, I could`ve made small talk right there. :)

    It`s all about attitude guys. Don`t be ashamed you`re having sex you dingleberries. Be proud some women are drunk and desperate enough to sleep with you.

    I`d be a little bit embarrassed if I was buying them with my partner. Because I`d know that the sales assistant would be like "ooh I know what YOU`RE gonna be doing tonight"

    But actually, a friend told me that her partner was fine with buying condoms or even her sanitary items, but found it too embarrassing to buy toilet paper, and instead used ripped up newspaper.

    Nether me or my otherhalf find it embarasing. think of it like this, buy condoms, or go to the doc`s for invasive tests and treatment for STD`s or an unplanned pregnancy, or both.

    Id rather skip around the shops shouting look what im going to buy, than have the doc look at me with that face that means " you`ve drated up, go sit in the window" ..

    Ah, I remember when me and my ex went out to buy our first pack of condoms.

    We weren`t embarressed. On the contrary, we spent absolutely ages scanning the shelf and giggling at all the "specialist" type of condoms and wondering if we had the guts to buy any - In our eyes, it was entirely worth it buying a pack of coconut and pomegranate flavoured, dotted-and-ribbed, vibrating man-sacks coated in heat-sensation gel just to see the look in the shop assistants eyes as she tilled them up.

    "You ANIMALS..."

    Okay, we were too embarressed to do that, but we bought some ordinary ones without a second thought.

    The way I see it is this: Why should you be embarressed about wanting to protect yourself? My old best friend from school is pregnant now, and she`s just nineteen years old. She`s so naive, she doesn`t know how to look after herself, let alone her unborn kid.

    I`d rather risk a couple of shallow adults snicker to themselves than risk throwing my life away.

    I agree with you, it`s not embarassing at all. Btw, I had the same thoughts, my ex and I, about a year ago. But the wallet was the limiting factor; those things cost a fortune as soon as they`re a little bit out of the ordinary! At least here in Sweden...

    >MONSTERtm
    Yeah. Agreed. Hell, smirk at the other people in line with their groceries, they don`t look like they`re getting any, do they? You are buying a condom. You are planning on using it. Sucks to be them (unless they are hot and of the other sex. Then, we can start talking about this newly bought equipment, and usage of it).

    OMG. Marry me?

    Sorry to join this party at the last minute. I`m not embarrassed, but I stopped buying condoms from the store all together. You can get them cheap as hell online, something to the tune of 100 for about $22 (for the higher quality ones might I add..)

    I think the embarrassing part is knowing that they know what your gonna be doing later. Im finally getting comfortable talking about condoms and birth control with strangers. *Shakes head* just last week, had trouble with my insurance while getting my bc, and the pharmacist (male) said to my boyfriend "She dont wanna have babies, understand?" when my bf said we could get them later at the other pharmacist that didnt have trouble with it last time.... was funny. XD
