How Old Do You Have To Be To Buy Condoms?
There are no age restrictions when it comes to buying condoms in the US. So just relax the next time you walk into your local drug store to buy some, know that you will not be carded or questioned about your age by the cashier. If they do ask, remember that the cashier cannot legally refuse to sell you condoms if you decide not to provide your ID.
While there are no legal age requirements for buying condoms, there are laws that govern when someone can legally have sex. This is referred to as the age of consent. The average age of consent in the US is 16 years of age, but it will vary from state to state. Make sure you understand the rules in your state. And no matter what the age is for the parties involved, please make sure you only engage in sexual activity when both parties are willing.
Our team here at Champ highly recommends that anyone engaging in consensual sexual activity to use a latex condom. When used properly, condoms are effective in both preventing pregnancy and the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and diseases.
