Hook Up Truck Hits The Street Offering Haven For Casual, Safe Sex -

Hook Up Truck Hits The Street Offering Haven For Casual, Safe Sex - 

The Hook-Up truck – a conceptual “art” installation consisting of a box truck converted to a sex suite on wheels, including temperature controls, birth control, safe sex accouterments, and a camera option, in case you and yours decide to make the escapade a YouTube sensation, is finally open for service the weekend of May 2nd and 3rd.
The “Hook-Up Truck” is the brainchild of artist Spy Emerson. According to their website, the box truck is a car service, like a mobile hotel room, available for short-term rentals.
“The room is designed with cleanliness in mind.  I’ve created a very minimalist room.  Everything is wiped down and cleaned before and after every person.  It’s probably cleaner than the BART or any public toilet you’ve used.”
Instead, there’s a custom-built metal-and-wood bench covered with vinyl, which is stain-resistant.
“Instead of a traditional bed – which is bedding and absorbent – this is a bench, in the shape of a ‘C’,  and designed to facilitate positioning for the average-sized bodies,” Emerson said.
“This is a game for adults who want to play with sex,” says Emerson. “You have to be nice, and cool,” she said, adding “No Drunks!, but everyone is welcome to join us. There will be a party going on all the time!”
Saturday, from 6-9 p.m., it will be in Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood for the Art Murmur, before heading to San Francisco’s Mission District where Emerson will be on the air with Radio Valencia at 10 p.m.

Street musicians are scheduled to stop by, possibly to serenade the “sexcapaders.”
On Sunday, it returns to Oakland for a party at NIMBY on Amelia Street from 5-9 p.m.
The truck also can be reserved through mobile dating apps “for immediate dispatch.” It can also be pre-booked for festivals, weddings, or holiday parties. Users of the truck must be at least 21 and registered with the service online.
