If You Buy Condoms For Your Teens....

If you buy condoms for your teens, do you always buy the same brand or do you just buy whatever is cheapest?

  • Well you know something. It made my older two think twice about having sex and they chose not to. They are 21 yr old twins and one got married in July and he and his wife were both virgins on their wedding night. And they are waiting to have children til they have graduated from college. His twin is engaged and still a virgin. How do I know this, I am open with my children. We have honest conversations about relationships, sex, life, etc.

  • I don't have a teen yet, but when that time comes, I will buy the most expensive out there...you get what you pay for.

  • If they are old enough to be having sex, they are old enough to be buying their own condoms. JMO.

  • Trojans and Durex are the best out there. That being said, I got pregnant WITH my FIANCE as a CONSENTING ADULT using a trojan condom.....SO we only use Durex now. My mom never bought me condoms, I wasn't getting it on either. Everyone's kids are different. Not everyone has horny little teens screwing everything that walks. Some people wait for whatever reasons. Who cares. I know its probably the last thing you want to think about, but get out the banana's and show him how to put it on right! That is crucial, just bc you bought them doesn't mean they know how to use them and if its for a girl get a back up method of birth control.

  • As the mother of teen sons and a teen daughter - I have told my children that if the feel they are old enough for sex, then they are old enough to buy THEIR OWN condoms!!!!
