    I go to my chemists. I don't get the embarrassment factor - although one of my friends was v embarrassed. He wouldn't go to the confidential school nurse to find out if she would give any (she wouldn't - i went for him). In the end I had to buy them for him.

    He usually orders them online but had been locked out of his house and was staying the weekend with his gf.

    To be honest some people are still embarrassed if people know they are having sex. Doesn't mean they shouldn't have sex - just that they're private.
    I wouldn't trust pub toilet condom machines though..
    Hmmm, kinda dodgy, but it depends what sort of pub/club the vending machine is in. If it's in a respectable pub and it's a Durex one then it's OK, but I always go to the chemist or supermarket as vending machines don't tend to sell the ones I use.

    If you're embarrassed about buying condoms, i don't think you're ready to have sex tbh.
    I think thats a very harsh comment to make. Just because i feel nervous doesn't mean im not ready for something. I mean my mates cant understand it, i just feel a bit embarrased. I dont think a its a sign of immaturity i just don't like the fact that sometimes someone knows what you are up to. Sex to me is very personal and i like only me and the person im with to know about it.
    ANYWAY WHAT'S WRONG WITH PUB CONDOMS? lol

    The pub wouldn't be allowed to sell them if they weren't kitemarked, ie had passed all the same tests that durex and trojan and other well known brands have passed. I've never had any problems with pub condoms, except for a banana one which I still can't bring myself to use.

    Yeh i agree many pornstars have had this problem. Apparently it weakens sometinhg in your arse and it just comes out.......NOT NICE also i find it really hard to go into a chemist and ask for condoms. I normally go in a pub toilet.

    HOW DO YOU ALL GET YOUR CONDOMS?
    I go into a chemist and buy them in boxes of 18. Have done since I was sixteen. If you're not mature enough to buy condoms, you're not mature enough to be having sex.

    As someone who used to work in a pharmacy, i can honestly say i was never bothered when people came in and bought condoms. I was much more bothered about what i was gonna have for dinner when i got home, or if i was going to get home in time for ER. The only guy i do remember is the one who came back and said the condoms were too big and did we sell smaller ones. But he was extracting the urine.

    Not sure if this is gonna get deleted, but I wondered if people could help me!

    Who's tried it, and how terrible is it? Any potential risks?

    Cxx
    the anus is non lubricated and isnt really meant to hold something so big, so it mat HUUUURT unless you use plenty of lube/KYjelly. also use a EXTRA STRONG durex as the anal passage may well to tear slightly/develop slight fissures in the tisses which can increase risk of transferring STDs, and a normal condom may rip with tthe tighness of fit.

    and nevr put a pens or finger from the anus into the vag/mouth/ vice versa the nasty germs from the butt hole can cause terrible infection

    another tip: the male G spot is up the anus :eek:

    There are durex vending machines? I'm going to the wrong pub... the only ones I have ever got from a vending machine didn't have the heart mark on them, and I've never trusted myself to use them.

    50-100?! Don't think they sell them in packs that big! That would cost a fortune! I agree with whoever said the cashier really doesn't care, I used to work in a supermarket and I didn't look twice at what was going through the till, I would think in Boots/Superdrug or a pharmacy they'd be even less likely to care as they probably sell a pack every few minutes!

    Once you get to uni you can just get them free pretty easily Saves a lot of money!

    Lovehoney sell packs of 100 for a bit over £10 I think. Might be nearer £20, but not much

    I think people are exaggerating this whole not being to hold ur faeces in stuff. If it were true all gay men over 50 would be pooing their pants everyday.

    Anyway I'm trying to phrase this as NICELY as I can but it's difficult. I have had sex a few times where faeces have interfered with play :eek: As well as making sure you empty your bowels you should douche as well. You can buy them off the internet and stuff and basically one end goes over the tap, and you stick the other end at the entrance to....u know.

    And it fills ur bottom with water which feels a bit weird (so make sure it's not too hot or cold!) and then you go to the toilet and act like ur having a poo, and all the water comes out, along with any stuff that may have been sticking to ur insides, to put in politely. Because even if u go to the toilet beforehand, bits of it may still be lurking. And there's nothing worse than 'that' smell to put you off sex.

    Well if that hasn't put you off, don't use oil based lubricant. The best position for beginners is to lie side by side because it means it doesn't go as deep as other positions. Go very very slowly. Some people recommend him putting a finger up there beforehand but I don't....weirdly, if something too small and thin is put up there it can hurt more, I dunno why.
