ok, condom question. where has everyone found the best selection of condoms in stores? i know they have some at like CVS and Wal-mart, but i've never realllly looked, so i'm not sure how the selection is, or if they just have trojans (cuz that's not what i want). i know you can order them online but i dont see that as being an option really for me or my boyfriend. so i just wanted to know where i could find some. thanx.

Hrm...well, in general, I've found that drugstores and gas stations have a very small selection. Usually just Trojan, Durex, Reality (female condoms), occasionally Lifestyles. You'll probably find the largest selection at the largest chains (the ones you mentioned, Jewel Osco, whatever is in your area)

The only place you're likely to find a wide variety of condoms locally are sex shops. If you live in a large city, that might not be a problem, but if not, you may have some problems.

Online ordering these days really isn't so bad--there are online stores that don't require a credit card, and besides, most stores that sell such goods online are VERY discreet. For example, it's likely that you will be billed by something innocuous like "CRU" instead of "CONDOMS R US"

Both WalMart and Target near me carry Durex, Lifestyles, and Trojans (I like Durex best), as well as a selection of lubes, including astroglide. If you've got any of those near you, I'd suggest trying them.
