It's a common paranoid fantasy for teen-age boys, but a 17-year-old senior at Hart High School in Santa Clarita had it come true, and kept his aplomb throughout. Buying a condom. The stuff of fears and embarrassment so common they are a staple scene in coming-of-age movies. The fear that a disapproving adult will pop up. The hope that this will be a private moment.

The Safe Sex Shop, which sells condoms to drive-in customers at a converted Fotomat booth, opened this week in Santa Clarita. Established by a local attorney and an auto-body shop proprietor who said they want to help combat AIDS, the shop's opening had been delayed several weeks by vandalism. The booth's window had been broken and its signs marred by spray paint.

Drive-in movies and drive-in restaurants have become endangered species, but a drive-in condom shop is about to open in Newhall. Not just yet, though. Hours before Richard Kotler and Frank Bennetti were to open for business Monday in an former Fotomat booth, vandals broke a window and smeared black paint over its Safe Sex Shop sign, drawing the circle-and-slash symbol over the word Sex , the operators said.

This year was marked by the power of nature and the frailty of man. But remember 1992 not only as a year of floods and flames and famine, but as the year a sex priestess sought redemption as a nature guide, a man held up a bank in Burbank with a bag of bananas and some Lancaster officials said no thanks to sex toys.

There are no prostitutes walking the streets. Residents looking for X-rated movie theaters--or the Playboy Channel on cable TV, for that matter--are out of luck. But the sexual revolution is still full of skirmishes in this conservative bedroom community. Consider the battle of Castaic Junction: A Gentleman's Club. All-nude dancers gyrated into the new club about a month ago and wowed the crowd--for one night. The war over the only such establishment in the area has been raging ever since.
