Would You Be Embarrassed to Buy Condoms from a Salesperson of the Other Sex?


Excuse me, Could I please have some, er, er, er...a package of gum, a copy of that magazine, and er, er... Buying condoms from someone of the other sex poses a problem for only about 24 percent of us, and surprisingly, there isn't much of a difference based on gender. Our guess is that not only have condom advertisers finally succeeded in their campaigns, but it's practically a necessity that you overcome whatever reluctance you might feel. Better to be safe than sorry! Now if you will only use them! Side bar: 30-54 women have the most fear followed closely by 18-29 males. Of all the groups, women 55+ have the least fear.
