I am 15, and i fear that some time, i will be in the right place in the right time, and be SOL because of condom lack. However, I don't want to go to a 7-11 and buy condoms because I fear that either someone i know will see, or the clerk will deny me the purhase and/or chew me out. i was thinking about the free online condoms, but that would require my mom seeing the package, as she gets home earlier. I may never use them but would feel better knowing that if i had a chance i would be able to go for it.

thanks

Well, firstly - sex without a condom is a no-no, but you knew that already.

You don't have to buy them from a 7-11. You can buy them from a chemist or supermarket, or get them from a planned parenthood or similar sexual health center (probably free).

Check out Ready or Not, our sex readiness checklist. If you can't put yourself in a position where you can safely get hold of condoms, or other birth control, then perhaps you aren't ready for sex?

You can find a list of PP's in CA here: http://www.plannedparenthood-la.org/

You can also go to a health department and they also give out free condoms. also if you do get free condoms off the internet, i believe they come in a unmarked package.
