Sexy time goes mobile with ‘The Hook-up Truck’

Stuck for hook-up locations? You can now pay to have sex in the back of a truck. Urrm, yay?!

If you’re short on private space and struggling to find somewhere to enjoy alone time with your man, this new business venture could be an option.

The Hook-up Truck™ is described on its website as “a modern dating solution for safe sexual adventuring”. OR, a van that people can hire to have sex in.

From the outside, it looks like a standard delivery truck… but inside, hidden behind some strategically placed boxes, is a chamber fitted with furniture, mood lighting, temperature controls, camera ready options and, of course, condoms.

The sex-mobile is driven to an agreed location for the hiring couple to, ahem, enter and enjoy. Their website also states that the service can be enjoyed “when using your favourite mobile dating apps for immediate dispatch.” So basically, when you see someone you like on Tinder, give them a call and you can get straight to it.

The concept was thought up by artist Spy Emerson last December, and she created the trucks fit-out herself.

But, really, would anyone pay hard cash to get it on at the side of a road? Emerson reckons they would, and do.

“Lots of requests are coming in, and a great variety of people from single moms and people with roommates who have no privacy, to business people in the financial district who need the truck on their lunch break,” she told HuffPost.

“And of course, the more kinky folks who are into the adventuring of it.”

Turns out the San Francisco-based service is also surprisingly cheap - $75 for half an hour (which is just enough time for a lunchtime roll in the hay before you head back to work). Or the 5-hour party rental package – which sounds a lot like an orgy, but apparently isn’t – is $2,500, but includes host staff and a cleaning crew. For the dirtier types among us.

The Hook-up Truck™ will currently only travel to locations within San Fran, but who knows, if successful it could set up shop as far as Aus soon. (Let’s hope not.)
