In Dubai, Durex products can be delivered within an hour to anywhere in the city from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m., thanks to a new service launched this week.

According to the Associated Press, users can order condoms from their smartphone or a website, a service thought up by Durex and Buzzman Middle East called SOS Condoms.

Sandrine Girard, a spokesman for Buzzman, said the service will be expanded to other cities. Its next location will be decided by a competition on SOS Condoms' Facebook page.

And you don't have to worry about anyone finding out what's in that package that's being delivered so late. Agence France-Presse reported that delivery is always discrete, made by someone dressed as a pizza delivery man or who looks like a tourist and slips you your special order.

Business Insider noted that 12,512 people have already downloaded Durex's new app and are busy voting for the service's next city.

But don't fear: If you go to the College of New Jersey, you've already got a similar service in place. It's called ConAm — short for Condom Ambulance, of course — and delivers condoms to students around campus.
