What’s more fun than getting frisky, fooling around, and getting consent before slipping on a condom and going at it with your girlfriend? Knowing you got that condom for free!
Last week you found out the game plan for getting condoms in store, but what if you don’t feel like handing over the cash? No problemo! Here’s where to go to get your hands on condoms without paying a penny:
- County or State Health Department Clinics – these places want to give you free condoms. In your search engine of choice type “ (your county’s name here) County Health Department”. On their site, look for the hours and phone number of their STD clinic. Give them a ring and ask when you could come in to pick up free condoms.
- Pregnancy Planning Clinics – open up Google/Bing Maps, and search “(your zip code), pregnancy planning clinics”. Boom! A map of all the locations in your area. Give them a call and ask what times it is possible to drop in and get some free condoms.
- Scarleteen’s Find-a-Doc – The feature of this already fantastic site is a life saver. Just click here, change the “Do they offer free condoms?” tab to “yes,” enter your zip code and it will get you a list of locations that are happy to provide you with all the latex you need!
- School? – It’s not all that common, but some high schools will have a Nurse’s Office or even an in house Health Clinic. Drop in during a lull and ask the nurse if they give out free condoms. “You guys don’t give out free condoms do you?” Don’t be so nervous, their jobs is to help you out and that’s what they like doing. If they’re allowed to, they’ll set you up. Tough luck if you’re at a Catholic School – might wind up with a ruler to the knuckles for even saying the word out loud.
They may not be just around the corner, but for Free-Ninety-Nine, this cost can’t be beat. Convince a couple of friends (hopefully one of them has a car) to go and stock up.
