Buy your condoms beforehand

Just when you don’t expect it, you need a condom. So maybe you’ll end up having unprotected sex, which is what you didn’t want to do. Make sure you always have condoms with you:

  • Buy condoms beforehand.  Then you’ve always got one if you need it
  • Make sure you always have condoms with you. In your bag, trouser pocket or wallet, for example.
  • Make sure you have more than one. Just in case the condom tears or you want to have sex again.
