Carrying condoms if you are or planning on becoming sexually active is a responsible thing to do.

Unless there is a john attached to that condom, that is pretty stupid.

Well, I agree with the majority (even though I'm a little late).

No. I wish more people would carry condoms on them. It's just safe practice.

this. i really don't think the state of NY has the time to deal with this type of bs when they have other stuff to deal with that. if it went through the courts, i guarantee it would be overturned

This is like those laws about being scantily dressed as evidence for prostitution. It's very wrong and damaging to apply it as "evidence" and in this case they are likely risking people's lives as well.

Wow, I can't believe that! Carrying condoms should not be a sign of prostitution in any way.

I find this a bit ridiculous. If you think you may need them, carry them. It's more responsible than not carrying them.

Condoms should be encouraged, not punished.

If the police use condoms as evidence for prostitution then they might as well start convicting hundreds of millions of people. The thought of this just enrages me to no end. Would they rather no one carry condoms and have unsafe sex? No, just no.

What the everloving hell? Any sensible sexually active person should have a condom or two on them, and should be allowed to carry as many as they feel they need.

They can use it as proof I am a space alien from the underworld for all I care. Carrying condoms shows you are fully aware that unprotected sex is dangerous and if that's all the proof they have someone is going to get another face full of litigious American for false arrest and character assasination (or whatever else my lawyer can come up with). Normally I applaud the police force for their dedication but this is amazingly stupid....even prostitutes deserve the right to protect themselves from disease and unwanted pregnancy. This? Is just amazingly stupid reasoning...dangerousl y stupid reasoning.

Even if you were its still not enough evidence to arrest you even if you had a BOX or CASE of condoms in your bra! Carrying a condom or 200 isn't illegal unless you just stole them! It's evidence of the intent to have sex not to pay for or get paid for sex.

I think carrying condoms is smart. Never know when the opportunity might happen.

Um... it's everyones responsible for their health, which means you should carry condoms if you are sexually active.

If carrying condoms is proof of prostitution, then is carrying a drivers license prooof of speeding?
That uses the same logic as the fact that all convicted murderers drank milk as children, therefore drinking milk as a child will make you a murderer as an adult. As Forrest Gump said.."Stupid is, as stupid does (or in this case says)."

Way to promote unsafe sex there! How DARE someone want to have safe sex! /Rolls eyes. And what right do cops have to take away someone's condom? They're not illegal~

As much as I hate to bring up gender, I have to wonder if the cops are only taking condoms from women and not men. Sex-workers come in all flavours, after all. If there's a higher percentage of women getting their condoms taken away, to me, it shows that the police believe women shouldn't buy condoms.
