Forget pizza! Get condoms delivered to your dorm

Let’s be honest, your parents wanted you to go to college to get an education and prepare yourself for a promising future.

However once you got there, your college life consisted of eating Ramen noodles, hitting the late-night establishments and finding someone to hook up with.

Let’s assume you’re back in your dorm room after you found that “special someone,” what happens when “sexy time” was about to start and you forgot/don’t have the proper prophylactic material, what would you do? (Stop, don’t answer that…)

At the College of New Jersey, sophomore Kyle McCabe used his entrepreneurial spirit and created CondAm, the Condom Ambulance.

After ordering how many condoms you need on the website, McCabe will personally come to your dorm room, deliver “the goods” and you’re ready to proceed with you-know-what.

CondAm promises speedy delivery during normal business hours (7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday through Sunday) -- prime-time hook-up hours. McCabe says he’s responsible for all deliveries at a moment’s notice, even keeping packs in his backpack when he gets the call. The condoms only come in one variety, but according to the order form, other kinds are coming.

McCabe said he created the business not to make money, but to promote sexual health on the college campus.

“I would rather people who were not prepared call me … rather than make a bad decision,” he said in an interview with the campus newspaper.

Most of CondAm’s profits go back into the business to maintain his supply. McCabe said he hopes to earn enough to give some of his money to sexual health foundations.
