It's advised that you don't carry condoms in your wallet or back pocket, as they can get torn while you're moving around and going about your busy lives. But where are you supposed to carry them?
"Civil servants have been urged to carry condoms in their underwear when going out on occasions that could lead to sex, the chief director of human resources in the Education Department, Mr Zama Tom said yesterday. ... He said: "If you put them (condoms) in your bag or jacket, it might not be easy to fetch it when you need it. If it is in your underwear, it will always be closer to you.""
Where do you carry your condoms? Would you ever think to carry them in your underwear (assuming you wear some sort of underpants )
Well, I assume carrying condoms in your undies for a night wouldn't damage them too much but would most definitely not be recommended for too long. Thre real question though is: where would you put your lube bottle? In the undies, too?
"Is that a bottle of bodyglide in your pocket or are you happy to see me?"
I think the actual idea of a reminder once you get undressed isn't all that bad (even though I think safer sex should be so automatic that you don't need one). I remember back in the early 90's several AIDS groups had an initiative called "ring my bell" (or whatever) where they would distribute little bells on rubber bands that were supposed to be attached to zippers on your Jeans, so that you'd think about condoms when the zipper came down....it was at least very funny, being at a club where people would wear bells on their crotches. Attention grabbing.
I personally don't carry condoms on a day to day basis, because I don't have any partnered sex at the mo. When I do have sex and carry condoms, they are somewhere in my bag, usually. A good place to store condoms well within reach (at least for a short while) is under the silicone seams of thigh high stockings.

Did you know that they actually HAVE underwear with little pockets in the front for condoms? I saw them in some magazine, and thought it was crazy. All I can think is that, if you carried them in your underwear, wouldn't the foil scratch ya up? hehe..

I was just going to say! Now they have little pockets on the front of undies perfectly condom sized. And you could probably stick a little one-use flavored ID lube in there too
Underwear gets weirder and weirder, the latest trend for thongs is to have ribbons to tie up the sides (you know, the part that connects the front to back). Wouldn't it be funky to have bows on your sides? oh well, whatever floats your boat

That's cool! I want a thong like that... but anyways, yeah carry condoms in your undies is a good idea! Then you don't have to stop what you're doing and go dig threw your bag to find your condom. It'll be right there when you need it for sure! Unless it slips out or something...

my best friend and i found some thongs at the mall that we thought were hyseterical.
they're just these cute, basic cotton thongs with little cartoon images front-and-center. but then, on each hip, there's a little plastic clasp. you pinch that clasp, and - ta-da! - you undies open down the front like a diaper.
the "easy-access" thong, we called 'em.
it's a shame that undies with condom-pockets already exist, because as soon as i read the beginning of this thread, i planned to invent them. too late. =P hehe.

I've got a soft glasses case in a funky early seventies print that easily holds about a dozen condoms, birth control pills, lube, gloves . . . any safe-sex equipment I could want. It occasionally even holds my sunglasses, and fits neatly in my purse.

I have an actual condom case...its kinda like a glasses case just smaller and with a zipper. Its bright neon pink...impossible to loose. I carry it in my purse. I believe its the second best invention ever...next to the underwear with the pocket

This coule be the craziest question ever asked But I hadn't ever heard of undies w/ condom pockets until I read this post... I just wondered, where is the pocket located? It's a good idea, but seems a little strange to me... 0=)

also as some of the other people on here were talkin about the thongs with the pockets for the condoms. yes they did look very very clever . and also very cute. but did you know that they also make bras with pockets in side the cups for them (condoms) also. I must say... very .. very nice !
