Need condoms? We’ve got you covered. There are lots of ways to get hold of condoms so that you’re always prepared.
Young people can use the confidential online ordering service to get safe sex packs mailed to them which contain 2 condoms/dams and 2 sachets of water-based lubricant.
Wrapped ‘n Ready is a free condom distribution program run by the Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC).
Condoms, if used correctly with lube, are the most effective way to reduce your risk of contracting an STI as well as helping to avoid pregnancy.
QuAC provides free, safe sex packs (which contain lube and your choice of condoms, female condoms, or dams) to people at risk of HIV and STIs (yep, that includes young people), organisations and health services in Queensland.

How do I get condoms?
Condoms can be easily bought at a supermarket, chemist, convenience store, or petrol station, through vending machines in public toilets or nightclubs, or are available free through sexual health clinics and services, community-based organisations such as Queensland Positive People, Queensland AIDS Council, Open Doors, and some youth centres.
Nervous about buying them? You’re not the only one. It can be awkward, especially if you haven’t bought them before. Remember that you’re not the only person buying condoms—chances are there’s plenty of other people having sex and using condoms and the person at the till sells them every day.
How do I know which condom to choose?
Condoms come in a range of sizes, flavours and might also have textured surfaces like ribbing or studs to enhance the experience for you both.
