Condomerie Amsterdam

Amsterdam Condomerie Shop

The Condomerie is the first condom shop in Amsterdam and in the world. It’s located in the Red Light District – on De Warmoesstraat – and easily recognizable by dozens of condoms displayed in the shop window. Many sex workers buy their condoms here. But the Condomerie is mostly visited by tourists who have never seen anything like this in their life.

The Condomerie is also a highlight of our Red Light District tour.

All kinds of condoms. Also condoms for women.

Sexual Education In The Netherlands

The shop was founded in 1987 in a time when the HIV-virus was quite active. The owners of the Condomerie wanted people to get better sex education. They wanted society to become open about sex education, the prevention of STD’s, teen-pregnancy and whatnot.

Great souvenirs!

Sex education has been compulsory since the end of 2012 for primary schools and high schools in the Netherlands. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science wants to prevent sexual coercion or transgressive behaviour on one hand, but also homo-negative behaviour. It also wants to promote respectful behavior or sexual resilience of students. There are also points of contact with sexual education in other attainment targets. For example, pupils must also take care of their own health and well-being and have knowledge of functions of the body.
