In New York City, you can get just about anything delivered, from Thai food to mattresses.

Now, for the lover in a hurry in the city that never sleeps, a bike messenger will bring safe sex to your door.

L. Condoms, a company specializing in prophylactics made from natural latex with no chemicals added, just launched a one-hour condom delivery service in Manhattan. It already offers such a service in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

For $8 in New York, (it is $5 in L.A. and San Francisco) the products will be delivered in an unlabeled black box. The service is available through the website – thisisL.com.

But there is more to it than just convenience. The company was founded by Talia Frenkel, a photojournalist whose coverage of the effects of HIV/AIDS on women and girls inspired her to create a higher quality premium condom. Now for each one purchased, one will be donated to a developing country — particularly those in need of HIV/AIDS prevention tactics and education.
