Had to give half a box away since I broke of with the person I was going out at the time just weeks later.
First time I ever bought condoms was nervous about what was gonna happen after getting home with them, g/f and I were about to do the dirty and it was my first time.
but I swallowed my fear, walked into the sex shop, right up to the counter showed my id to prove i could be in there(had been in before just to buy joke gifts for friends) and just outright asked for advice on which lubes would be best and what type of condoms they preferred.
Very helpful folks.
My friend works in a shop in a small town (one of only two shops in the town) and sometimes makes a show of people buying condoms.
They're kept behind the till so sometimes its like this
Customer: Can I have a box of condoms please
Friend walks over to condoms and picks up the two different packs on offer and says very loudly "Do you want the red ones or the blue ones?"
I don't even see why it would be embarrassing, everyone around you knows you're probably getting laid, just be like "deal with it".

The first time I bought it was really awkward.
- My friend who was with me thought I kinda was a jerk, because acording to him "Now everyone in there thinks we're gay". I never thought of that, nor cared.
- The boyfriend of a friend of my girlfriend saw it. He told his GF her friend's boyfriend bought condoms, they thought it was funny somehow, so my GF said she didn't want to do it that night because "everyone knew". Well GJ bitch, cause after that everyone thought we fucked when we didn't.
In the end we broke up before I got to use the condoms on her.

I buy lube and condoms all the time at a drugstore and no one has ever gave me weird looks when buying either of them... And why should they? LMAO!!! What? You think a cashier is laughing at you behind your back after she checks out stuff you use for sex and whacking off or is thinking that you are some weirdo? Hell, even in high school I would sometimes buy a pack of trojans when I would have the dude at the counter ring up my giant slushie and bag of doritos >_>
I've never understood people that are too scared to buy something as simple as a pack of condoms, if you feel ashamed/embarrassed for buying them then you should not be having sex at all as I see it.

At Uni I always went to buy them with one of my male mates with me, while also making sure I brought other items to make the cashier feel as awkward as possible, I think the best example was in fact the first time, when it was purely accidental, and non of the items were related in the slightest - well not the reason I'd brought them...
Box of Condoms - for obvious reasons
Cucumber - just because I'd forgotten to get one when I went shopping the day before
and last, but not least
KY Jelly - which was actually for my new wakeboard bindings, the style of them needed breaking in, so they were going to be very tight for the first couple of weeks, so I needed some lubricant to help get my feet in, and it had to be water based - KY was a whole lot cheaper than the stuff they sold at the wakeboard shop...
yeh the cashier couldn't look me and my mate in the eye on that transaction . . .
Nope never felt embarrassed about it. having a safe and healthy sex life isn't anything to be scared of when purchasing them.
It's sad how society somehow makes it embarrassing for certain people to buy condoms. It should be praised if anything.
Either way, I don't think I ever felt embarrassed buying them. Then again our stores have machines placed at the entrance to which we simply buy "tickets" over the counter. When fed into this machine it pops out whatever it is we wanted, be that condoms, smokes, cigars, etc. Basically machines for anything people might feel embarrassed about. Convenient as hell.
Well excuuuse me, Princess.
You are now breathing manually.
Meh I've never found it embarassing except when I had to buy my first pack at 16 and I couldn't find them so I had to ask the old lady at the counter and then had to choose a size. Now I chuck them in the cart along with everything else most cashiers are so bored they don't even know what they're scanning.
It is fun when I go out to specifically to get a pack. In that scenario I always buy a larger size, a random piece of fruit or vegetable and some random magazine. Pet lifestyle or a cooking mag usually and I just stare the cashier straight in the eye.

Of course I've bought condoms; they're by far the least invasive birth control option and me / the wife are not going to have kids until we're good and ready.
Being British, both myself and the cashier are both as equally as embarrassed as each other. So transactions happen without looking each other in the eye.

First time I bought an assorted pack with a friend for giggles, keeping one each and using the rest for pranks, the only embarrassing part was that the cashier was a guy from school that had a crush on me. Every other time since I haven't really been embarrassed, but I prefer to use self-service in supermarkets.
I just get the King-Maxi-Anaconda size packet and throw that bad boy on the counter. Who cares you only have to roll them out 1/3 of the way, still looks boss buying them
