The Complete Guide on How to Buy Condoms
If you think safer sex, condoms come to mind first. They’ve been around a long time and you don’t need a doctor’s prescription. Cool. However, over the years, one of the conundrums for guys was where and how to buy condoms. For some, there is a layer of purchasing embarrassment given the personal nature of the product. Luckily, we have the Internet and so our method for buying condoms has never been more comfortable. For everyone who wants to have safer sex, go ahead, conveniently shop from the privacy of your smartphone or computer.
With so many condoms out there – including different types as well as different brands – we’ll admit that it can be a little overwhelming sometimes, especially at first. That’s why we put together the following buyer's guide to make how to buy condoms online as easy as possible for you.
Why do we bother with using condoms in the first place?
Before jumping into our guide on how to buy condoms let's reiterate the ever-important reason for putting on a condom.
The prophylactic is the only device that can, if used correctly every time, help reduce STDs and also prevent unintended pregnancies. For these two simple yet very important reasons, condoms are priceless devices for every man.
What you should know
Before you go on your condom shopping spree, let us give you a bit more insight. As we just alluded, all condoms are for pregnancy protection. However, how you actually use them determines their effectiveness. Their effectiveness ranges based on a type of use, which varies from perfect (98%!) to typical and inconsistent scenarios. Since this article guides you on how to buy condoms, for more in-depth questions regarding condom effectiveness, refer to our article where we describe this topic.
Natural latex, polyisoprene and more
The time when you had to depend on a single material (latex) is thankfully long gone. Nowadays, manufacturers use several materials when making their condoms. Whether you use the widely accepted natural latex or any other alternative, it's good to know condom lubricant compatibilities and effectiveness capabilities.
We recommend reading the product descriptions either on the product page or packaging itself for those details. Manufacturers always have the last say, so listen to what they recommend. You can also shoot us an email if you have some condom-related questions. We always do our best to help.

How to know what size condom to buy?

Types of condoms
There are many types of condoms for you to choose from today, including a bunch of shapes and styles. Go down the list to see what we have for you.
Non-latex condoms are not just for allergy sufferers. Anyone can enjoy sex with condoms that don’t contain any latex allergen ingredients that might irritate, especially if you are sensitive.
It's all about getting closer and the ultra-thin category has plenty to offer. With condoms that are even thinner than the rest, you get to enjoy better sensitivity and that certainly helps you feel the intimacy more.
When you want to have your climax under control, turn to condoms with a penis desensitizing lubricant. These help you prolong your humping rendezvous.
Ribbed condoms give you some extra help in stimulating your partner. As you move up and down or in and out, the ribs or studs work their magic.
One of the purposes of condoms is pregnancy prevention. Spermicide condoms have lube with N-9 that kills sperm on the spot.
These are not only flavored but also scented too. Imagine smelling fresh oranges or strawberries while going at it. You have a choice here as well so go do some shopping to find your fave.
Condoms are no longer just available in a single and bland, neutral color. Some are yellow, red, pink, blue, orange... If you want to stimulate your visual senses, shop in this category.
