Countless studies have shown that condoms are highly effective at reducing the risk of transmitting and contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The CDC agrees, as they show:
Recent research reported that CDPs as structural interventions:
- Increased condom use, condom acquisition, and condom carrying.
- Promoted delayed sexual initiation or abstinence among youth.
- Provided cost-effective and cost-saving outcomes on future medical care costs by preventing HIV infections.
- Significantly affected condom use behaviors and helped reduce HIV/STD risk among a wide range of at-risk groups (i.e., youth, adults, commercial sex workers, high STD populations, and males).
So how can we stay safe without spending too much money?
Free Condoms for Everyone
The first site you need to use is Condom Finder. Their mission is to give away one million free condoms each year. To help, they have a database showing the nearby community health programs and businesses that offer free condoms.
And by “businesses,” I mean nondescript type places like bars and restaurants! Not all of the free condoms require walking into a clinic or health center.
The next guaranteed resource for free condoms is Planned Parenthood. They have a well-documented information page on condoms, along with a location finder.
Free Condoms for Students
Almost every single university offers free condoms to their college students. It'd be impossible for me to list them all, but you can easily find your school's free condom locations by Googling “free condoms UNIVERSITY NAME”. Then substitute your school's name for “UNIVERSITY HERE” and viola!
Here's an example for University of Alabama free condoms. The first page listed should be the school's official ua.edu and it links to this free condom page. We can see they offer free condoms at all residence halls and major student center!
You can do this for almost any college, university, or school and find ample free condoms.
Free Condoms Based on Location
Many states and cities have their own free condom programs. I've included a few below as examples, but you should search Google for “free condom” and your state. Use that link and replace “STATE HERE” with the state you live in, no matter where you live. You'd be surprised how many locations offer free contraceptives!
- California has a free condom database similar to Condom Finder, but only for … you guessed it, California! You catch on fast 🙂
- New York City has made free condoms available since 1971
- Ohio offers free condoms to state residents over the age of 16. You can place 1 order per person each month!
- Washington D.C. currently sends out free condoms to local residents in unmarked envelopes.
All of the jokes below were used from legit freebies over the years. Brand name condoms come and go, so hopefully the resources above can help you find free condoms today!
When filling out the form to obtain these seven free Maxpro condoms, did you notice that one of the questions asks if you buy 100+ condoms at a time? My question is – where can you buy a box of 100+ condoms? Can you imagine trying to be smooth while doing so? Even Casanova would have a hard time looking suave while paying for a pallet of condoms.
It's been over three years since I last posted these free Trojan condoms. Unfortunately something PG rated to say about them still eludes me.
I almost typed something about “being excited” to get these freebies, but then realized that could be construed in more ways than one.
*Wha…How…Oh boy. This could be a dangerous post for me. Okay Goob, pull yourself together and try to get through this as cleanly as possible.*
So, who wants a condom from Horny Goat?! *Good job, idiot! Way to be subtle and tasteful.*
Seriously, Horny Goat is a company. A beer company. Giving away condoms. It makes perfect sense! In order to get your free Horny Goat condom, enter the site and click “Where To Get Horny.” I always thought the answer to that question was “everywhere” but apparently there are now designated areas or something.
Here's an offer for free LifeStyles condoms for both people who enjoy safe sex and budding animal balloon artists.
Only one free Trojan condom? Fine, fine, I won't look a gift horse in the mouth. What the heck is a gift horse anyways? Has anybody ever encountered one? The only gift I've ever received from a horse was a one-way ticket from his backside to the ground. What else could a horse possibly give away?
Well, I guess he could have 3,000 Greek warriors. You know, on second though, I'm happy with just the condom.
For some reason, these free Sensis condoms remind of me ninjas. I think it's because Sensis sounds like sensei, like Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
And long story short, now I can't stop picturing ninjas having relations.
I always like it when a company spells their name in capital letters, as it makes me think it's an acronym for something. Let's see, ONE condoms…how about Optimal Naked Experience. Yep, that's gotta be it!
How does this free Durex magazine (with $25 worth of coupons) even exist? Somebody explain to me how a condom company has a magazine without A) only publishing one issue before running out of fresh stories or B) having it quickly turn into a full fledged adult magazine. In fact, I almost wish I was in charge of that little operation. I'd have a blast coming up with new stories and articles month in and out. Ryan Goob – Editor of Durex Condom Magazine
Oh man, would that not look amazing on a resume or what? I'm telling you, I was born for that job!
