It was only a matter of time before San Francisco’s love of fuss-free hook ups, on-call car services, short term rentals, repurposing trucks, and tech all came together in harmony. To be honest, I’m bummed I didn’t come up with this first. Ladies and Gents, I introduce to you The Hook-up Truck.
Promising “a modern dating solution for safe sexual adventuring,” you can rent a box truck via a dating mobile app of your choice to get busy inside of it. Pre-booking for your next holiday party or wedding is also available, which will make for quite interesting dinner conversation among relatives and co-workers, depending on your event. At the very least, you’ll get some good stories out of it. Worst case, you’ll never make eye contact with that co-worker ever again after that infamous Christmas party.
According to the website, users can set the mood inside the Hook-up Truck's private and secure room with temperature control, but there's no mention of lighting or baby-making music selection. Hook-up Truck is sex positive and requires users to be 21+. A truck come with complimentary birth control and STD protection (natch) and camera ready options, for those who are into that sorta thing.
Specific details are hard to come by on the site, but the next time you think you’ve met the-one-for-tonight, will you hold off on Don Draper-ing it and skip renting a hotel room for your casual encounter? Or does getting sweaty in a box truck hold a certain appeal to you? YOLO and stuff.
Judging by the pictures on the website, I have a strong feeling Hook-Up Truck will be popular with the Burning Man contingent.
