A group of Kiwi teens is taking aim at the embarrassment of buying contraception in stores by setting up an online condom delivery service.
Founded by 18-year-olds Jamie Martin, Harry Copeland and Isaac Mercer, the business – named Package – will provide prophylactics right to your door.
Statistics from the Durex 2017 Global Sex Survey Summary showed only 23 percent of sexually active people in New Zealand use a condom on a regular basis – making us the third worst country for condom use.
Package users can choose how many condoms they receive each month. There’s also an option to deliver the condoms as a gift.
“People like getting cool stuff in the mail, even if it isn’t necessarily something they’ll use,” Mr Martin told Stuff.
“It might just be a joke [for some of our subscribers], or something like that.”
