The following media release was posted to Uber’s website on September 1, 2022:


“September 4th is World Sexual Health Day—an occasion for breaking down taboos around sexuality and promoting positive sexual health practices globally. 

To celebrate, Uber Canada is sharing its first-ever snapshot shedding light on Canadians’ sexual health and wellness. The data reveals the most popular and most unique sexual wellness products purchased in cities across Canada on Uber Eats. We also rank the Canadian cities that are the most prepared for sexual adventures, based on how many sexual health products they’re purchasing on Uber Eats. 

Over the past year, as more and more pharmacy and convenience store merchants have joined Uber Eats, Canadians have increasingly relied on the app to get more than just food in a pinch. Sexual wellness products—including everything from condoms to emergency contraceptives, lubricants, sex toys and more—are finding their way into people’s online shopping carts. Uber Eats has quickly become 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 top the list of the most popular sexual health products ordered on Uber Eats. Edmontonians are the biggest consumers of sexual health products and contraceptives. You can see where your city ranks and what products are trending across Canada below. 

It’s never too late to develop healthier sex practices. To show our support this World Sexual Health Day, Uber Eats is helping Canadians out by offering limited-time discounts of up to 20% off various sexual wellness products from September 1 to 7—so stock up on your essentials while you can!

Uber Eats has grown quickly from a platform to get your favourite meals delivered to a one-stop-shop for anything you need—from pharmacy essentials to groceries to alcohol. Over the last few years, Uber has invested heavily in its delivery business and selection has expanded tremendously. We’re continuously expanding the in-app selection by bringing new merchants onto the delivery platform to deliver Canadians their favourite items. Nearly three million consumers order essentials beyond food each month through Uber Eats.”
