SOS Condom

International condom manufacturer Durex has launched a new app and service that discreetly delivers condoms within an hour. (Nice find, Tim)








If you get ‘caught short’ then you simply need to access the SOS app or Durex’s SOS website. Within 60 minutes, Durex will deliver your condoms via someone in disguise – for example a ‘pizza delivery man’ – so your date stays none the wiser.

Users can order condoms between 4pm and 4am anywhere in Dubai, and the service aims to expand to other countries too. This service is a nice step-up from France’s ‘condom machines on every street corner’ strategy, which may be effective but definitely ruins the look of many a picturesque village!
