DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (January 31, 2013)--Dubai is already a launching pad for American fast-food restaurants and a Canadian coffee shop, and now the glittering Gulf metropolis also has a service from Durex and Buzzman Middle East called SOS Condoms.
Starting this week, users can have Durex products delivered within an hour to anywhere in the city from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Users order condoms from their smart phones or through a website.
Sandrine Girard, a spokesman for Buzzman, said Thursday that the service will expand to other cities with the next city decided by a competition on SOS Condoms' Facebook page.
Dubai has strict laws on sex-related issues, but is more liberal than the rest of the Persian Gulf.
