Emergency Condom Delivery App Is The Reason Why Smartphones Exist

When you look down at your smartphone and think about how much it's made your life easier and better, you will probably think about how the internet is at your fingertips, or how you can share filtered photos with friends. You probably think that's why the smartphone was invented. You would be wrong. The reason we have smartphones? For an emergency condom delivery app.

SOS Condoms, made for balloon enthusiasts by condom maker Durex, is an app that can change the world, and I don't say that lightly. If you're ever stuck in a pickle with a potential mate but no condom (practise safe sex people!), you can drop a pin of your location through the SOS Condoms app and have the rubbers hand-delivered to you. Choose the pack you want, cash or credit, bam. It's the best delivery system since we decided to transport pizzas in cardboard boxes.

The service is currently available in Dubai between 4pm and 4am local time, so people there who like early evening bones or those working the late-night shift are covered (sorry if you like it in the morning, but you can plan ahead for that!). Durex plans to expand the program elsewhere, and you can vote on where it should go by heading to its website.

Even if it never comes to Australia and it's just some sort of wonderful marketing ploy to inception Durex-driven dreams into our hopeful libido, this is the future, fellas. Enjoy responsibly. [iTunes via AdAge, PSFK]
