Vancouverites are among the Top 10 consumers of sexual health products from Uber Eats, according to the online ordering and delivery platform.
In recognition of World Sexual Health Day on Sept. 4, Uber Canada shared a ranking of Canadian cities based on how many orders there were per capita for pregnancy tests, condoms, emergency contraceptives, lubricants, and sex toys.
Vancouver ranked fifth among the top 10 cities — lower than Toronto, but higher than Montreal.
Edmonton was in first place, followed by Ottawa and Calgary.
In a release, Uber Canada said the data for the ranking was gathered “as more and more pharmacy and convenience store merchants have joined Uber Eats” over the past year.
While food orders are by far the most common use for the app, Uber Canada said it also becoming “a convenient, accessible resource for anyone who needs contraceptives and other sexual wellness products fast, or wants a more discrete buying experience than in-store shopping provides.”
Pregnancy tests and condoms are the two most popular sexual health products ordered via Uber Eats.
Last week, Uber Canada offered discounts on such products as part of its promotion of “positive sexual health practices globally.”
“It’s never too late to develop healthier sex practices,” the company stated.
