Where do you get your condoms from?
« on: July 08, 2007, 10:47:43 PM »
Hi,

I need a refill  :o

What is your favorite brand and where do you get your condoms from? Last time I bought condoms I used a company online that I cannot remember (yeah it's been a long time) and bought 60 condoms for very cheap. Those were LIFESTYLE grey ones. Then I have grabbed condoms from sex clubs and brought them back home.

I'm not really about of colored condoms and not really about flavored condoms either.. I just need standard ones for anal sex.

Do you have a favorite condom shop? Do you order online? Cheap?

Packs of five?  What the deuce?

I just bought a pack of 32.  The Non-Family Family Pac.

I also bought KY and Astroglide.  Because having options is important.

PS-  If I did get me a new batch, you can bet they wouldn't be red.  Makes me feel like I'm a German Shepherd when I wear a red one.

I use a non-brand brand called jippies, they come from a community condom shop so they are subsidized and cost 10 Euro cents each (durex cost something like 10 times more). I buy them a 100 a time. they are actually the best condoms I ever used including all the special sentisized latex-free expensive brands. I also receive female condoms free from the city public health clinic but I never dared use them, they seem complicated.

I always get a free pack of 24 at my local pharmacy when I pick up my meds, alongside with some free vitamins, body lotion and stuff. They make a lot of money with my prescriptions and they're happy to give some of it back to their loyal customers. Then there are free condoms at the gay venues, usually combined with lube sachets. The local AIDS support center gives them out for free as well.

I have no favourite brand. I'm happy with the natural look, natural colour. Flavour is wasted on me, I don't suck rubber cocks and my butt has no taste buds.

I just trek over to my office.

I have about 15 different kinds, including the female condoms.

I have colored, ribbed, flavored, large, extra large, just normal, ultra thin, ultra sensitive, extra strength (for those rambunctious folks out there), to name a few.

I also have little lubettes, just perfect for those forays into the forest - or the bushes depending on where you live.

Which reminds me, I have to go through mine here at the house and get rid of those that have expired.  ::) :'(

Shows you how active my sex life is.

Exactly!  'Cept I don't know about that German Shepherd thing.  That would be scary.  I'd stay away from the brown ones, too.  We do occasionally have them for others who want them.  We'll get a few medium sizes, and a few more of the biggest we can find, you know, just in case we get real lucky.

I need to step back here for a moment.  Brown condoms....brown condoms?   Do they even sell brown condoms?!  Definitely NOT aimed at the gay demographic.  Well, not the majority of the gay demographic...


When ya get right down to it, I don't really need any assortment of colors when it comes to condoms.  Plain old flesh tone works fine.  It makes it seem like banging a clown.

When I used condoms I got them from my ASO or a place like Walgreen's or CVS.

It's slightly off topic, but you can also buy Elbow Grease at Walgreen's now. Considering that it is not used with condoms, it speaks volumes about how many folks here have dispensed with them altogether.

Hiya all...

Condoms... nice question!!!

I get them at the supermarket, the brand name is "Family" (a bit contradictory, isn't it?). Lube's brand is also "Family". Of course it is a cheap non glamoured brand, but works OK.

Being a supermarket cheap condom brand guy has not been a handicap until today to get good sex ;-).

They come in packs of 12 units (extra special offer ones!!!), in packs of 6 units (regular price) and in young suit pack (2 condoms... more expensive -bizarre pricing policy anyway-).

All in all, they're not too expensive, about 1 euro the unit (1,3 dollars)...

Also in gaybars here in Madrid there are for free, with lube. Also I got them for free from time to time from friends who work or colaborate wiht ASOs...

Bucko, how does it work this thing of serosorting? Isn't it a bit risky of reinfection?

I've heard that risk of infection if both HIV+ are undetectable (and on meds, obviously) as per regards to viral load is very low... but, how to be sure of eachone is undetectable in the moment of an intercourse?

Anyway, I am not sure what to think about it, it seems an interesting issue to discuss about...

hugs!

Condoms?

I have never bought one in my life.  Hence, I am here.  And, now that I am here, I serosort and still do not buy them.  I guess if I wanted to buy them I would head to Walgreens or Rite Aid (both are close to you milker). 

Milker, you buy condoms in a sixty pack?  WOW, you are gettin lucky a lot.

I'm sure that I could find a few gathering dust in a drawer somewhere.

When I used to get them, it was from bars or the local GUM clinic.

Then I sort of gave up using them, which is kind of why I'm here.

Anyone for a mercy f**k?

Oh, to actually need condoms at the moment!  But whenever I am sexually active, I just run on down to CVS and buy a big variety of different types of condoms, because I get bored with using one type and like a change.  I am not that in to coloured condoms--I find them a bit unsettling, but I buy them occasionally just for kicks.  I use astroglide for lube.  I did try the CVS brand of the warming lubricant, but I had some irritation from it and I really itched down there.

I used to get my condoms at the clinic, but with a recall notice of Lifestyles condoms because of pinholes, I use the condoms provided for free at our ASO here.

Me personally, I would never give an oral massage if condom was used, matter of fact, I can't recall ever spotting a condom on the otherside of the gloryhole. ::)

at,

I hope you're not using Crisco while using latex condoms! If you are, you're going to end up with a broken condom one day. Oil based lubes (and Crisco falls into this catagory) degrade latex. Please only use water based lubes with latex condoms. You may also want to check out the three condom and lube links in my signature line.

The local pharmacy sells them in packs of 40. Yeah, it can be a bit embarrassing but, hey, everybody does it, so you can scoff at that cashier and tell her where to stuff her cupins.

Oh, AU, if you're going for variety, try getting a bottle of Wet too. Silicon based, so it doesn't dry out as quickly as the water-based ones do. Plus, it's condom friendly. Never had one break on me, and I went through A LOT back in the day. :)

I buy Wet Platinum lube, which can vary in price greatly, so I buy condoms from whoever has the cheapest lube price. Condoms tend to vary less in price than lube. But you also have to factor in shipping! Some sites have cheap products but screw you on shipping.

I get mine from Walgreens, CVS, Supermarket, gas station bathroom (I will not get into it).

Be careful buying in bulk and not using them in quick enough time, they have expiration dates, and does anyone know why?  Do they taste sour after they expire???

And one more thing, I was with the new guy and we pulled out a non-lubricated one.  Now mind you, we had the bottled lube already out and working, but getting the damn condom on was a nightmare!

Hi Milker,

When I was sexually active (about X number) of years ago, they were available at bars, healthcare organizations and the local pharmacy, supermarkets and convenience markets.

I checked my supply before my last date (also X number) of years ago and they were all expired.  Being a magnet for men with ED, it hasn't been an issue for me.  Have the best day

Been meaning to get back to this for a day or so.  When I said "flesh tone", I was referring to my particular flesh tone...as in through a transparent condom.  However, your point is a very good one.  I don't think it's putting too fine a point on it at all for you to have said so.

A refill?  Heehee!!!  Well why not trip on down to the drug store or Wally World or K-Mart and
get you some.........

Incidentally cheap is not always a good thing....especially for the person on the receiving end
(if you know what I mean)

Most gay bars and ASO offer them free of charge...assuming you're not a BIG BOY
and need a LARGER size.  May the force be with you :P
