DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) —Need a condom delivered to your doorstep in an hour? Then Dubai is the place to be.

Already the launching pad for American fast-food restaurants and a Canadian coffee shop, the glittering Gulf metropolis now features 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 smartphone or 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.
