I'm imagine that this is to reduce the emabarrasment factor?

If it is, then are you really ready for sex? If your too embarrased to admit to someone in a shop that you're having sex maybe you need to have a re-think?

I know you can get them free from your doctor though, well in the uk you can.

Sorry if that was no help

You can obtain free condoms at most family planning clinics, like Planned Parenthood branches.

If it's a financial issue, though, it's worth stopping and considering if you're ready for sex if you can't afford condoms, which cost a LOT less than emergency contraception, abortion or childrearing, and regular sexual healthcare, all of which you'll need to be able to potentially obtain and afford to be sexually active in a healthy, sane and responsible way.

i joined freecondoms.com and i signed up for a couple things w/o paying a dime and am now recieved 40 durex condoms, and a 100ml or lube for free. i am just mentioning this because i know so many people have asked for a place to get free condoms online, as well as myself. i joined one that got me 40condoms alone by signing up for one day to a site, calling them 5min later and cancelling my subscription and that was that.
if you want to know the site, it is... http://www.FreeCondoms.com/default.aspx?referer=2073968


sorry if you consider this to be an ad or somthing, feel free to delete it, but i myself was looking for something like this and didnt really get much of an answer and im just tryin to help out

I belive the Brook centres (which provide sexual health care for people under 25 in the UK) provide free condoms.

If there isn't a Brook centre near you, their freephone helpline (0800 0185 023) can tell you what the nearest young people's service is.

Lots of local services also provide free condoms - if you let me know what county you're interested in, I can see if I can find out resources in that area.

I live in England. I think there's a Brook near me, but are you allowed to just walk in and say "I'd like some free condoms please"?!

guynamedthomas, there's really no point in posting just to say you don't know the answer to someone's question.

The Brook centres exist to look after young people's sexual health, so I'm sure they'd have no problems if you went in and asked about free condoms .
