I will never understand why someone would find buying condoms embarrassing. You're being a responsible person taking care of your own and your partners sexual health! You should feel good about that!
So not cool that some clerks try to shame people when they buy condoms. They're probably just jealous because they're not getting any.
Oh yeah. Buy them every month. It's not that big of a deal.
If someone confronted me about it, for what ever reason, I'd give them a healthy dose of my opinion along with a "mind your own fucking business" punctuation at the end.

There is nothing to be ashamed off, for being responsible at sex
I've bought them once or twice, I prefer not to use them, don't like it. I prefer to be a bit more picky about who I sleep with.
Monk, I need a monk!!!
I really feel uncomfortable buying condoms from people, so whenever I buy condoms I go through the self service check out at Coles.
And I hide the condoms under other items in the basket and then quickly put them through and throw in the bag and then hope no one saw.
Even though I know it's not a big deal, I still dislike other people seeing my buy that kind of thing.
EDIT: I realized I typed that as if it's uncommon for me to use self service check outs. I always go through the self service check out if I can. If I'm in a mall that has two supermarkets and one has a self service then that's the one I go to!
Personally I have never bought them myself. Closeted gay man here, that isn't really ready to get out into the world just yet.
But I do work in a supermarket. And I have to admit, when I swipe condoms through I do take a look at my customers and judge them. I am sorry, its just what I do. If they are an attractive couple, sure go ahead. If it is a 50+ year old man with his asian 20 year old wife however, I feel repulsed.
I rather buy condoms than pregnancy tests It is not like the ones you buy it from will judge you.

All the time. And I go to the GUM clinic to check ups after being with a guy.
Actually gum clinics a good place to get free condoms and lube.
When I was younger, I always enjoyed this transaction. I would find the youngest looking kid working a register, and buy the goofiest items possible along with the condoms. A great combination would be a box of condoms, a bag of rubber bands, a bag of adult diapers, a douche and a Cracked magazine. Try buying that with a straight face when some pimply faced 15 year old kid rings it all up. Classic.

I buy them quite often, but the store clerk doesn't seem to care. Why would you be ashamed of buying condoms? You're just taking an extra step to save yurself from trouble.
I just get them wherever they sell them and i'm closest too.
Don't think there's any reason to be ashamed.
What will people say? oh look at that dude, hes going to fuck. Haha!
