Found 3 in dh's drawer, not hidden. He knows I go in there when tidying/putting away.
Found 3 mates natural condoms all individual, not in strips. It's been years since we used them and we don't need them now for contraception. If use by is Nov 2019 when do you reckon they were bought? Is that how they come out of vending machines (3 loose ones)When we bought them from chemist in boxes I thought they were attached in strips if you know what I mean.

Yes, they sound like toilet vending machine condoms.

You can't really date them from the expiry - they could have been in the vending machine for a year before anyone bought them.

It seems exceptionally stupid to leave random condoms in a drawer he knows you access, is there any reasonable explanation?

Thanks anchor, thought so. Don't know at all. They've only appeared recently. W erything seems fine between us. Getting more sex as dc sleep better. Not sure if they were bought to try something else if you get my drift.
I've got such a busy weekend with visitors arriving etc I'm going to park it and consider carefully if and how I ask him about it.

Meant to add if they are from a vending machine, they come in threes don't they? Suppose I'm getting at it looks like none are used (from the ones I've seen at least)

A quick google search will tell you that condoms bought today will have a 2019 expiration date. So they were (I suspect) bought very recently.

Thanks at the beach.

I've had packs of three or ten where they were single, not joined up.

Very odd that he would leave them where you could easily find them!

Thanks Rogan.takes me no further forward then. I'm not ring anything on or out at this stage. I guess I would t know unless I ask him, and maybe not even then. Think I'm going to bury my head in the sand til weekend is over sad

ouchmyfanjo Sat 24-Oct-15 15:39:28

That's kind of what I thought cleotaurus (like the name btw) we have been a bit more experimental recently and yes the posh wank thing is a possibility. Never heard centre parks used like that! If I was really suspicious I would be behaving differently I reckon. Thanks for making me feel better.

I think he would have hidden them if they were fot anything dodgy, you don't just buy xondoms from a vending machine to have sex with an OW then being them home and put them in your drawer.

When you put it like that dinoyab yes it seems daft.

RoseDog Sat 24-Oct-15 15:48:56

My dp works in a very male ordinated workplace and the often have men's health type weeks where they give out info, do general health checks and give out condoms and other tat could he have had something like that at work?

KP86 Sat 24-Oct-15 15:52:03

Just ask him.

"Hey, DP, I was putting X away in your drawer; where did those condoms come from?"

If he freaks out then you might start to wonder that he is hiding something. If he's innocent (my assumption) the answer should come easily.

Don't mention, keep an eye on them. If they disappear you know something's going on.

Thanks everyone. I don't feel unduly bothered so will go with that and yes will probably either ask him or just get them out. Maybe they are there specifically for me to see and take the initiative; )

There are numerous uses for condoms beyond putting them on your member and having sex! Some are related to sexual activity, some not so much grin

Ask him. I wouldn't a) see if they disappear b) get overly worried about it - but bear in mind that even if they are a bit of harmless fun he may well be uncomfortable admitting to it!

Really? I've been so naive - I've only put them on penises.
