* ''Series/FullFrontal''. A parody of a PublicServiceAnnouncement about safe sex had a couple agreeing to do the deed, but the man doesn't have contraception. He then lists exactly how many condoms he'd have to buy just on the odd chance he'd have sex that night, until the woman becomes annoyed and storms off to buy some. He then turns to the audience and says that [[WarpTheAesop you can always get women to buy your condoms]].

* On a less funny side, in America, at least, there are pharmacists who will refuse to fill prescriptions for the contraceptive pill and cashiers who will make buying condoms as difficult and unpleasant as they can. Some stores do still keep condoms locked up, and there's one story of a cashier asking a young woman for I.D., despite the fact there is no legal age limit to purchase condoms.
