    Some local NHS's have departments for sexual heath, you can get them free from somwhere like Centeral Youth, or the local GUM clinic.

    Hiya, it's OK to post stuff that mentions not-for-profit organisations, especially if it's promoting safer sex.

    I work in a chemist and when people come in a buy condoms I just think of them as being sensible, whatever age they are.

    Surely they're not going to ask for ID to buy condoms!!

    When the goverment gives out free condoms to underage people then chemnists really do not care about what age teh peopel they sell there condoms to, one suggestion is dont use a supermarket, can be really embarasing, one of my mates parents was stood behind me in the line, she was like "oh wat have you ot there... " - I nearly died!!

    Other than that - like I say most town will have something like a central youth (that what it's called where I live) which specialises in underage peoples sexual health, and they give out free condoms in a hope that it will bring down the rate of teenage pregnancy.

    Hope that Helps - play safe and HAVE FUN baby.

    The chemist assistants will ask for I.D. before locking the doors, chaining you to the counter and looking at your tiny pecker. When they've stopped laughing they'll call the police. When the armed responce unit arrives you'll be violently taken to a maximum security hold and interogated as to your intentions with the rubbers, torture may also ensue. Here your parents will be informed of your intended purchase. There will be no legal trail or appeal, your looking at a death penalty (via fire) or a minimum sentance in the nick of 20-life. It just ain't worth it.

    ...or they'll sell you some 'johnnies' like they do all day to all the other kids and think nothing of it.

    what are you, some sort of puritan? bloody hell, the guy was only proving a point. don't tell me u've never heard guys joking around about that sorta stuff, with no malice in it, just as a matter of stirring people up or joking around? cmon puritanical freak, prove me wrong.

    anyways, we can get condoms from vending machines over here. =)

    If there's anything more important than my ego around here, i want it caught and shot now

    Trying to bring this back to some semblance of order...

    The staff aren't allowed to comment on you buying condoms, reason being that if staff all over the country were then everyone would be having unprotected sex.

    That in mind, it's still not unheard of for some people to make slight comments (like the "what have we got here?") in which case you just ignore them and they'll shut up in a minute.

    Just whatever you do, don't make the mistake I did and go to a petrol station late at night with an annoying bloke you know working. Especially not if it's a petrol station with a tannoy which can be heard for miles around. *shudder*. On the bright side, he got fired soon after. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    yes, here too, but of course you wouldnt know that. but theyre more expensive than in shops and stuff so if you want more than 2 novelty ones then buy em from a shop.

    no one is gonna ask for ID, youre allowed to buy condoms whatever age you are.

    Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

    no im not a puritan and im NOT a freak, dont call me that. turtle i guess u never been raped cos or if u hav then u hav a unique way of dealing with it. i wouldnt sit and listen to/watch ppl joking bout rape like that if it had happened to me. which it nearly did at party bout a year ago, but i managed to get away and fone the police. the party was raided and about seven or eight ppl were arrested, includin da guy who nearly raped me. i lost a load of mates for a while, but wen i explained wot happened they were really sympathetic. i am putting it behind me now, but i dont need a jerks like u snapping at me every time i stand up for myself. just keep ure mouth shut next time and leave me alone

    mmm, and u want what now bobbi? i'm sorry that the fuckers attacked you, but i'm equally sorry u can't seem to function in the real world.

    people say things u wont like, but zero tolerance towards that sure as fuck aint gonna win u any friends.

    bit weird this even came up

    condoms illegal to buy? methinks not.

    chemist staff DGAS, especially as it's pretty hard to tell the ages of girls from about 13-17. they wouldn't be embarrassed. it's just condoms.

    if u aint ready to buy them, u sure as hell aint ready to start using them.

    u lot are all taking wot i said the wrong way. i am just a little touchy about rape at the moment, if u read MY M8 NEEDS HELP, FAST then u will know why and thanx for all the help 2 ne1 who replied 2 that who may b readin this. ok, back to the point, the reason i got upset was cos of what kirk siad BEFORE he edited his msg. he said summink like: "...then they'll rape ure ass...". that well pissed me off cos it aint a nice thinbg 2 say. sorry if i upset ne1

    y do u all have a go at me? i am just giving an opinion and can i just say quicksilver that kirk has edited his post and removed the lines about rape so that u wouldnt automatically think of rape, but it was there, it said sumthin like "then they'll rape ure ass," but i cant remember exactly but it was sumthin like that.
    i doubt that any of u hav eva been as close to rape as i was, and my friend was actually raped. its a very sensitive issue 4 sum people, and u should all b more careful bout wot u say. wen i called da police out 2 that party, i caused myself to lose a lot of mates, but i did it anyway cos i wanted the bloke who hurt me to get wot he deserved, which, incidentally, is prison, but he was found not guilty cos apparently there wasnt enuff evidence cos he didnt actually rape me plus there were no witnesses, so he got away with what he did to me, just like the bloke who raped my mate thinks he will do, but he wont cos we'll fight him all the way. so, you see, rape shouldnt be joked about cos it has such a devestating impact on ppls lives. thanx. xxxx

    (condoms not illegal under 16 full stop)

    bobbi i'd just like to say that becoming paranoid about jokes like kirks is another way of letting the fucker that tried it on with you win. if you let it take over your life then the bastard has more power over you

    Talking bout the expense.... Boots have got Durex on a three for two offer at the moment. Which is great, but, a bit embarrassing too, cos buying one packet is just being cautious/safe right? But buying three big packs all at once is just bloody greedy!!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="redface.gif" border="0">
