Tonight's the big night. You'll get your hair done and your makeup done, then you'll shimmy into those new lacey underthings before hitting that SoMa scene (plenty of single techies in that sea). But what to do about stocking protection? Buying a pack before heading out could be seen as presumptuous. And just maybe, you'll end up jinxing the whole thing.
So in perfect timing for the big V-Day, startup L. has launched its delivery service today (in SF and in LA) to bring condoms straight to you when the timing feels ripe. The $15 12-packs will be delivered to your doorstep for a flat delivery fee of $5 and in under an hour. There's also an option to add Tcho chocolates to the bundle. And this being a startup, there's more! For every condom that's purchased, L. will donate one to a developing country with a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS. Act quick, though. Deliveries end at 11pm tonight.
