A condom machine is a vending machine for the sale of condoms. Condom machines are often placed in public restrooms, subway stations and airports as an effort of health protection. Many pharmacies also keep one outside, for after-hours access. Rare examples exist to dispense female condoms.
The decision to install condom machines can be controversial. In the novel Porterhouse Blue, conflict over an attempt to introduce them to a Cambridge College, among other things, leads to murder.
According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, when using condoms from a machine, one should check the expiration date, that the condoms are latex and labelled for disease prevention, and that the machine is not exposed to direct sunlight or other source of extreme temperatures.
