I'm flying home soon and was wondering what the best way to transport my (rather impressive [Cool] ) condom collection. One option is to stash 'em in my carry-on backpack, but as much as I would love to see the look on the TSA's face upon discovering them, I may feel just a bit awkward in the middle of the terminal...

So is it okay to put them through the checked luggage (what with temperature extremes) for a couple-hour flight?

A few hours in checked baggage should be just fine: after all, condoms get shipped via air mail all the time without any negative effects.

Also, condoms are a very common item in luggage - I really doubt the TSA would even raise an eyebrow, but by all means put them in your checked bag if it makes you feel more comfortable. [Smile]
