My First Condom

Updated on March 31, 2011

What do you do with it?

Is anyone's first condom actually used for it's intended purpose or am I the only one that can think of 101 (other) ways to use one? Hmmm, that may be another hub! First, I want to tell you a story of my first condom. No juicy details, just entertaining fun.

When I was about 16, a friend of mine had a very valuable commodity- condoms. First ones I had ever seen in person. I was excited and giggling profusely as if I'd discovered gold with naked men etched in it. I always thought of a condom as a toy- sorta. Of course I knew it's purpose, but I couldn't help to think of it as a forbidden toy I was deprived of in my childhood. You have to wait a certain amount of time before driving a car or wearing lipstick. It's a rite of passage, a combnation of reponsibility and woo-hoo fun. My rite of passage, condoms, were now slipping around in my hands while I wondered the obvious. What do we do with them?

My friend, a guy named Jon, and more specifically my partner in crime at high school, was the class clown. He was not my boyfriend, but I always had a weak spot for the funny guys. I did, however, have a boyfriend at the time who was doing time after school in detention. So here I am with my buddy, condoms in hand, and a look getting dumber by the minute on our faces.

Some action

Condoms are for fun right? Why else would they make them different colors, shapes, sizes, and textures? So that's what we used them for; F-U-N. Blowing them up was too obvious, but filling them with water to make durable water balloons, and taking them to the local carnival would be more amusing than watcing after school specials on TV. We could throw them at our friends there and have a good time.

Even though I thought I was old enough to earn the right to use condoms, I knew my mom would be a non-supporter- to say the least so I felt it was absolutely necessary to cover our tracks. My mom would have not only one cow, but the whole damn farm if she knew I was anywhere near a condom. My buddy and I gathered up condoms and wrappers and stuffed them in our pockets, planning evil genius ways to dispense of them. As teenagers we were completely exempt from any obligations concerning morale.

Our plan was hatched and going perfectly. My mom wouldn't be home for another hour and she was picking up my boyfriend from school after his detention. They both knew Jon and I would be at the town carnival so no big deal. Jon was theory.

It broke!!!!!!!

Two goofy kids walking down the street with a few water balloon condoms in hand- playing, tossing them to each other and at various friends we saw on the way. There was so much action during the carnival time, we didn't seem out of place, and certainly no odder than the guy on the side of the street wearing fashionably ill spandex pants and dancing to M.C Hammer tunes on his boom box.

Whoops! I dropped one of the condoms, I mean water balloons, on the sidewalk where it burst open and broke. Hey, those suckers are slippery, anyway, I guess that one was a dud. It just proves you can have fun with condoms, but not too much fun.

Never leave home without it

Meanwhile, at about 5pm, my mom arrives home with my boyfriend and the first one, whoever that was, to go in the bathroom, found a condom in the sink. The storm was brewing unbeknownst to me, and I was still having a blast at the carnival. We thought we had been tediously careful about collecting all the wrappers and any "evidence" before we left, however, we forgot the biggest clue- a wrapper. It was like an elephant sitting in the middle of that bathroom sink sticking it's toungue out at my mom and boyfriend- not good!

Yes folks, we left home without a major piece of evidence. Lesson learned- when it comes to teenagers, two heads are not better than one. In fact, it substantially lowers their already non-existent reasoning skills. The hunt was on... Jon being target number one on my boyfriend's 'should-have-kicked-his-ass-when-I-had-the-chance' list.

The trouble with condoms

My mom was one determined, overprotective, single mom on a mission. Unlucky for me, she was also very sociable and knew a lot of people so she was heavy on the phone calling everyone she knew, everyone I knew, and I'm pretty sure the President of the United States got a call too.

She gathered a search party and headed to the carnival. Amidst having inappropriate condom fun, I spotted her car out of the corner of my eye, and watched as she asked the spandex pants man on the street if he had seen us. Oh my God! I ducked, but not before I noticed him pointing in our direction. Another lesson- don't underestimate men in spandex. It cuts off circulation but improves memory skills somehow.

About two minutes later my mom found us, and simultaneously we found ourselves trying to explain the condom fiasco. My lovely, persistent mother wanted "proof" we were using the condoms as water balloons so I led her to the spot on the sidewalk where a condom had burst and a pool of water surrounded it. I looked up to see odd spandex man waving. Not the way I envisioned my first experience with condoms.  

Like most teens, life would not be complete without an embarrassing moment that echoed through the halls of high school. Me, the girl who broke a pack's worth of condoms in less than an hour, and Jon, the boy who was alone with a girl and condoms, but didn't use them for sex.

      My first condom came from my babysitters boyfriend. He handed me this thing called Trojan, told me to take it to school and impress my friends. I was eight and had no idea what I was impressing them with. I think it ended up as a water balloon as well.

      Oh, ho, funny story! I wonder what would have happened if you couldn't prove they were being used for water balloons? Of course, now you were all set if she did find condoms. You could always say you were making more water balloons.

      I found it quite humorous that for your suggested reading at the bottom of this hub about condoms, you recommend the hub, "Is It Worth It To Go To College." Ha! It is if you have condoms!

      You're last line about my college hub was hilarious- but you have a very valid point.

I haven't yet looked up to see how the score thing works. It's only appropriate, and laughable, that I reach 100 on the day I publish this silly condom story. lol. Good to see you JIm!

      Good laugh. My first condom (called a "rubber" then and handed to us by fathers who advised, "Don't get your feet wet." Wink! Wink!) stayed in my wallet long enough to leave a permanent circle on the outer surface, at which time I determined it to be dead. I never owned one again and, as they say, rode bareback permanently.

      fred allen~ I was much too innocent to use a condom for it's intended purpose. At least my curiosity leaned on the more proper side, mostly because I had my mom to answer to, and she raised me with decent morale. But I still have my funny side! THanks for reading fred.

      martie~ always lovely to see you. I had fun writing this. Yes, I was 99% innocent in high school, but 1% devious.

      david stone~ thanks so much for stopping by. Your condom story is classic right down to the "put a permanent circle" on your wallet. That gave me a giggle. Condoms are nothing but trouble so good thing you let it rot in your wallet. But for someone else reading this, eat your vegetables, don't stay up too late, and wear a condom- better yet abstinence is cool!!

      TH~ hey there's my silly hubber. I count on your comments to add to my silliness. Good to see you and yes that's my story- I'll have you know it was quite some time before I ever saw a condom again. So there!!

      Here in Portugal, condoms are, sometimes (not in every school), distributed through all of the school students, usually followed by a group talk about safe sexual behavior and just sexual education in general. That's how I got my first one. It was never used; it went to the trash about a day or two after. Once, the girls were even given a pack of tampons and menstrual pads, while the boys had a mini book with a detailed explanation of all the changes that occur in the human body during puberty. The girls got the book as well, obviously. They needed to know what the tampons were for, lol (although in my class most of them already had their periods, anyway. Even if they didn't, they would probably be well informed, already).

      During WWII, a British soldier discovered he could keep his gun's firing mechanism warm in freezing weather by stretching a condom over it. When Churchill heard, he ordered that troops be issued with 18-inch condoms for this purpose. To demoralise the Germans if they captured any, they were labelled 'Made in England - Medium Size'.

      OMG, this was so funny and I loved it. It reminded me of a tale my Mum told me about how as a child she went rummaging in her Mum's (my Nan's) bedroom drawers and found one of those ancient reusable condoms that were really thick rubber. Thinking it was a balloon she brought it downstairs bemused as to why she couldn't manage to blow it up. In front of a room full of her parents friends she asked "Can someone blow this up for me please", whilst waving around this condom. Deathly silence and audible embarrassment followed, whilst her blushing Mother ushered her back upstairs with dire warnings about going into her personal drawers again.

      A small PS. The first time I tried to put a condom on a male boyfriend I spent 10 minutes trying to put it on inside out before he took pity on me and showed me how it should be done!

      mistyhorizon2003~ Now that is a funny story too! HA! My daughter, 3, is starting to rummage through drawers so I have to hide "things" a little better.

      I can totally relate to difficulties with condoms. They are much easier to assemble as random toys than their actual purpose. lol.

    • mistyhorizon2003 profile image

      Cindy Lawson 6 years ago from Guernsey (Channel Islands)

      LOL, yes, it could be really embarrassing if she came downstairs asking what this buzzing toy was meant for and could she play with it. As for the condoms the best use I have seen for them other than the water bombs, is when people stick their heads right inside them and proceed to blow them up. Looks hilarious.

    • izettl profile image

      Laura Irwin 6 years ago from The Great Northwest

      Misty~ Funny you should mention that. THank goodness it was only my husband at home, but my daughter brought down a certain buzzing thing and asked my husband what it was. He said it was a flashlight. So we learned our lesson before it could have been more embarrassing with anybody else around.

      The other trick of blowing it up with their heads inside sounds hilarious!!

    • mistyhorizon2003 profile image

      I first saw a condom when I was five. I thought it was the newest sweet in town, and funny enough they fell out of my uncle's pocket so I ran to him and asked for more "sweets" and he just bursted out laughing and I thought he was laughing at me. I resented him for the next couple of years until I discovered what condoms were really used for... WATER BALLOON FIGHTS!! and yes throughout the years I have actually discovered 200 things to do with condoms which ultimately I could write a hub about!

      Thanks for reminding me of my first condom. Nice hub.

      Jasmine~ So condoms traumatized you as a kid- lol. Your story is like the evolution of the condom as we grow up. That's a great story- glad you could forgive your uncle.

      Thanks for sharing izettl. Right from the beginning you DID really know what condoms are for...having fun.

      I generally became too enthusiastic to keep the damn thing on and had to go fishing. I got away with going commando.

      According to Forest Gump a box of chocolates is like a leaky condom..."You never know what you're gonna get."

      Christopher Price~ Condoms just look too silly to be taken seriously. Nice Forest Gump quote!

      With a title like this, who could resist? I couldn't. What fun. My curiosity got the better of me and I'm so glad it did. Thanks for a delightful read.

      Great and funny Hub! I remember tying a condom on the antena of a car of a couple who had just gotten married! That thing filled up with air and it got soooo Big! We laughed about that for years!

      This is hillarious because its true! The first condom always fails with its intended purpose...trial and error. It was only after the 30th time I realised it wasn't meant for keeping cucumbers warm!

      thank you marymac47~ hey that's a great idea- funny!

      DrRobotnik~ And yet another good way to use a condom- cucumbers. COndoms and trial and error certainly all go hand in hand. THanks for the comment.

      thanks kanduss1!

      thanks LIL D123.

      LOL! It took me until I was like 20 [maybe 19] before I was even comfortable buying my own girlie "hygienic products" even though I've gotten them since like 1-2mths before my 14th birthday! The first time I bought condoms I was 20 and a half [3 yrs after my first deed because they were "always" the males responsibilty, yeah right!] and bought them out at another town that I was going to cause of work [because this town has a way of telling everybody anything!] now though ... well I can buy if I want I'm cool with the ways of life. I still live at home though so I still hide them ~ anyone but our parents right?! ... Hope my daughter, if I have one one day, is more comfortable with talking to me about these things than I was/am with mine!

      TTaylor87~ gotta love small towns. I grew up in one too as you read in this hub. Yeah I hope my daughter will be comfortable with it too but I'm not really looking forward.

      Maybe if I had used them for something else other than water balloons I wouldn't have had eight kids! But dang, these kids are funner than the water balloons!

      funny, poignant, wonderfully-crafted. The MC Hammer tunes and the pink spandex definitely take me back to my freshman year in high school in 1990. Hilarious! I am literally getting goosebumps

    • izettl profile image

      Laura Irwin 6 years ago from The Great Northwest

      Rich~ It definitely brought back memories for me too. I was only a year ahead of you so we likely have a lot of the same memories- too funny!

      mitshell~ those who haven't tried the water balloon antics with a condom, really should. They make superior quality balloons.

      In England most youngsters got their first condom from the barber. After your haircut he would say "anything for the weekend sir". I always thought he was trying to sell me shampoo or a comb. The irony is that when I wanted to buy condoms from the chemist, faced with a female assistant, through shyness, I would end up buying shampoo.

      Voted up and depraved. Sorry I mean interesting.

      When I first joined the Royal Navy, I had finished my training and was in the stores signing for my kit - one dress uniform, one standard issue uniform, one SA80 rifle, one pack 12 condoms(heavy duty) - what! I know the navy looks after you but condoms ? Yes rifles for the use of, Oh that's another dream shattered.

      Kind regards Peter

      Hey thanks for the laugh I needed that. I guess condoms are one of those necessities. Rifle and condoms are all one needs for protection. Lol. Thanks for stopping by.
