Free Condoms? - No problem!
It costs nothing to be good in bed, and here's the proof! - We want to help make sure you have condoms, dams or lube with you the next time you have sex so you're safe and have fun.
We provide free condoms to community groups and to individuals. Condoms help to achieve safe sex, prevent HIV transmission and enables discussion about HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Our condoms are distributed in packs of different sizes with lube, information and referral contacts along with our very own ‘Size-OH-Meters‘ – designed to reduce transmission by encouraging people to use correct size condoms. Last year we gave out over 33,500 condoms of various sizes and over 1000 femidoms.
Pop in to our office to pick your pack
Free condoms, lubricants, femidoms and oral sex dams are available from a number of places across the UK, to if you're not local to Leicester, visit NHS Choices to see what's local to you.
You may be surprised but many still don't know how to select the right condom and some people put them on incorrectly. The videos on this page can help you get it right.
Know Your Size!
Knowing your condom size is the first and most important step for safer sexual health. Some would say ‘a condom is just a condom why bother about the size’, but there is more to it.
Using the wrong size condom will have adverse results which may expose you to sexual infections or the risk of pregnancy.
- If the condom is too small it is likely to burst / break.
- If the condom is too big it will come off – perhaps inside.
- The combination of your length and circumference (girth) will help you choose the right condom size:
To check what size condom you should be using, pick up your own 'size-oh-meter' from our office or for bulk orders, please see here [link to well for living].
