    Hey, need help.

    I've been in a relationship for 6 months and me and my girlfriend are both ready to have sex... As soon as I can get condoms.

    Our relationship is hidden and we know a lot of people in pharmacies, so can't really go there.

    I've been out about 5 times to look. The condom machines happen to be broken everytime. Can never find them in supermarkets either. Just really need to know where to get them.

    I know places like boots and Tesco/sainsburys/asda have them but every time I go looking, I can never find them. What aisle are they in? Don't really want to ask people working there. What kind of section would they be in, in the stores listed above?

    Help is appreciated

    In supermarkets they are usually in the same aisle as medicine/headache tablets etc. In Boots they are with the medicine too, usually on the next aisle or near the men's toiletries section under ''men's health'' from what I can remember.

    If you want to get some for free, family planning clinics will give you a huge bundle.

    In supermarkets they should be in the same section as medicines and health products. Or they may be in the specific pharmacy section, if the supermarket in question has one of those.

    If you're too shy to ask someone who works in a supermarket, you probably shouldn't be having sex

    Condom machines are crap.

    Get ribbed packets from a supermarket with self-checkouts if you're that paranoid.



    Or just go to the checkout where a cute girl is and have the following;

    -Condoms
    -Lube
    -Cucumber
    -Bananas
    -Tub of Cookie Dough ice cream

    This. Last time I went I got a tonne of different types/flavours which were either Durex or Mates and a few satchets of lube.

    Why are you buying them?
    You can get them free from a GP/family planning clinic.

    They are normally beside pain relief/plasters and stuff for some reason in the bigger supermarkets anyway.

    I've used this website before. You text your address and you will get a selection of condoms. However you don't have any say in what size they are. So they may be too big or too small for you. With that said, going to your GP and getting some condoms cost you nothing, but this is a not discreet way.

    Buy them online, that's what I did!
    Plus, the packaging is completely anonymous, so no one will ever know :ninja:

    Supermarkets are great if you are feeling awkward about buying them. Self-service cash tills...
