Condoms (& Other Barrier Methods)
We sell condom wallets with 8 Durex condoms for $2.00. Bring your wallet back empty and get a refill for $1.50. We also sell ‘premium’ condoms at a higher price, though still much lower than anywhere else. You can mix and match between any condoms of the same price.
Alternatively, we sell both polyurethane male and “female” or reality condoms (great for those with latex allergies). We also sell latex dental dams for $1 each and black nitrile gloves.
Remember: Barrier methods are the only form of protection that protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Lube, lube, LUBE!
Here at the SHRC, we can’t say enough about lube! We sell several different varieties including O’My (a water-based, sugar-free, vegan-friendly lube in a beautiful purple pump bottle), Slippery Stuff (also sugar-free), Sliquid and JO silicone lubricants (extra slippery), and more!
Oil-based products such as vegetable oil, Vaseline, Crisco, baby oil, mineral oil, etc. will break down latex and are NOT compatible with latex condoms!
We also sell smaller sample sizes of certain lubricants so you may test some before you invest in a bigger bottle.
The SHRC sells vaginal contraceptive film or VCF (a bio-adhesive spermicidal film that is inserted into the vagina near the cervix and dissolves away after a few hours).
The SHRC does NOT sell spermicidal condoms.
Why? Spermicidal condoms do not have enough spermicide on them to actually kill sperm if your condom breaks. Spermicide does, however, cause micro-tears to form in the vaginal walls making you more susceptible to contracting STIs. Spermicide is a great contraceptive option for some people, but it just doesn’t make sense on condoms!
Spermicide contains nonoxyl-9 and some people are allergic to it. Not sure if you’re allergic? Come to the centre and try some on your wrist. It’s better to get a rash on your wrist now than one somewhere else in the heat of the moment!
NOTE: The SHRC does not sell any prescription birth control (eg. the pill, the patch, Depo Provera), however, we’re happy to talk about hormonal contraceptive options with you and explain the benefits and drawbacks of each, if it’s something you want to consider.
We sell Clearview II pregnancy tests for $4.00. They detect the hormone HCG in first morning urine 14 days after the day you think you may have become pregnant. Each test comes with a cup, eyedropper, and an instruction pamphlet. Come to the SHRC to grab one and a volunteer will be happy to walk you through how to use them.
If you have had unprotected sex in the last 72 hours and want to avoid an unwanted pregnancy, the emergency contraceptive pill is an option for you. Though we don’t sell it in the centre, our volunteers are equipped with information and the Pharmacy in the Queen’s Centre sells it for the cheapest price in Kingston.
Alternative Menstrual Products
The SHRC sells the Diva Cup, a silicone cup that sits just inside the vagina and collects menstrual blood. It is reusable (boil it in water to sterilize) so it saves you money, and it is great for the environment because it reduces waste.
Silicone toys are hypo-allergenic and great if you plan on sharing – when you’re done using your toy, pop it in boiling water to sterilize. The SHRC also carries toys made of plastic and jellies. These toys are not sterilizable so make sure to clean with warm soapy water before and after each use. Use a condom on these toys for maximal protection as it is possible to transmit infections to others if toys are shared, or even back to yourself after your original infection is treated.
Flared bases are essential for toys used for anal penetration. If your toy does not have a flared base, do not use it for anal penetration! Your anal sphincter is a pretty powerful suction mechanism. If you lose your toy, you’ll be in for an embarrassing trip to the ER.
This is what a flared base looks like:
This is the Pro-Touch, a toy we sell at the SHRC. It can be used for anal penetration (with the curved end pointed towards the belly button for prostate stimulation), so it has a flared base.

Cock rings are usually worn at the base of the penis, behind the scrotum, although some men wear them around the shaft of the penis only. It is recommended that cock rings be worn for no longer than they are comfortable, or 45 minutes, whichever is shorter. If you’re using a ring for the first time, you may want to remove it after five or ten minutes so you can become familiar with the various sensations cock rings provide.
Binders and Packers
“Binding” refers to flattening breast tissue to create a flatter-appearing chest using a variety of materials and methods. A variety of materials can be used to bind one’s chest, but the binders sold at the SHRC are designed to be safe, comfortable, and discrete. Binders must be custom ordered to fit each person. Please contact our Office Manager with any questions.
“Packing” refers to the wearing of padding or a phallic object in the front of a person’s pants or underwear, to give the appearance of having male genitals.
The SHRC carries a selection of BDSM gear that includes restraint systems and floggers. Restraint systems such as the Trick Belt and the Under-the-Bed Restraint Kit allow people to be restrained in a safe manner which will not impede blood flow and allow them to get free in an emergency. Our selection of floggers come in different sizes and appeal to many different tastes.
The SHRC carries a selection of massage oils, massage bars, and even a low-heat candle whose wax melts into massage oil. Some of them are even vegan and 100% edible!
