    Basically, I want to order condoms online (or even sign up to get free ones from websites) but I don't want either

    a) a mysterious parcel from a condom website to be dropped through my letterbox
    b) anything to appear on my parent's credit card statement...

    And no, I don't have a debit card

    So you're planning on using your parents credit card to pay for condoms and hoping they don't find out?

    You seriously have more chance of using someone elses penis for intercourse without them finding out. (The person with the penis, not your rents).

    Im sorry but it has to be said, if you cant face going to a family planning centre or buying them over the counter are you really ready to have sex? Having sex has some responsibility if you want to be safe etc.

    I will get off my high horse now, i think the best way is to go to the family planning clinic the people there are really nice, and as they do it as a job they are not going to judge you in anyway about wanting condoms, it is also in a condifential setting so there isnt a chance of people knowing you have been there unless you tell them yourself.

    I am still realy astonished at the number of people that pay for condoms. You can get loads for free at your local clinic, whenever I go shopping in town I pick some up. At the clinic I go to they give you them in a discreet paper bag containing 12, and they usually give you 2 bags - one bag has 12 durex and the other has 12 of a different brand. If they don't hand them out in a bag just take one with you and you can easily hide them from your parents.

    Go into a shop and buy them. If you live in a small village then get a bus into town and buy them. It doesn't matter how old you are, anyone can perchase condoms. If you're too embarrassed to buy them over the counter then you aren't ready to be having sex, simple as.



    Also, whatever you do, don't be stupid and just do it anyway without the condom. You will, most likely, get pregnant.

    Just buy them in a shop ffs. It's not that big of a deal. I'm sure you'll be bragging to your mates after you do it, why can't a random shopkeeper you'll never see again know you're going to have sex.

    I'm a little confused by this.

    I get my condoms free. I don't do that because I'm too scared to buy them. I do that because I'm too broke.

    The first time you need them, by all means go to a place where you can talk to someone but to keep going back makes you look like a scrubber tramp. Just go to a shop

    Eh, suit yourself. But as far as I can see, why pay more when you could pay less? I'm a poor starving student, and on principle I don't pass up free stuff.

    Why on earth would you want to buy them from the internet? GP, family planning, shop, toilets, or just get the person you're planning on sleeping with to buy them if you're too shy! And if you're too shy to get condoms yourself and there isn't a specific person you're planning on having sex with, you probably shouldn't be needing them. (last bit obv. just personal opinion). IDK how old you are, but my school even gives them out if you go to clinic in a box! Apparently that apple ones are really nice. But that's beside the point.

    I understand why you want to buy them online! me and my boyfriend do as you can choose the brand, and type etc and you can get loads for reasonable price.
    most websites say on them that they arrive in a brown jiffy bag with discrete packaging and it will say 'blah blah' on the statement.
    although i dont think you should use your parents card without their permission.

    yer duh, i think everyone knows that but you obviously havent even looked online before as there as soo many more choices and if you are the shy type whos more likely just to grap any box you can spend time online looking.
    i dont know why you're all making such a big deal, people buy clothes, food, holidays online, so why cant someone just want to buy condoms online? jees

    Yes, but there's greater availability online. There are some great brands that are harder to find in stores. Depends on where you are and what your local shops sell.
