Meet the man who has had sex with 1,000 cars!May 22nd, 2008 - 4:10 pm ICT by admin
London , May 22 (ANI): A stunning woman wont set his heart racing but a car is more than enough to leave Aussie bloke Edward Smith gasping for more.
Smith claims to have had sex with 1,000 cars insisting that he would prefer a car over a woman any day.
Smiths current “girlfriend is a white Volkswagen Beetle named Vanilla and he seems to b quite happy with his car-partner claiming that he was not “sick” and has no plans to change his ways.
“I appreciate beauty and I go a little bit beyond appreciating the beauty of a car only to the point of what I feel is an expression of love. Maybe I’m a little bit off the wall but when I see movies like Herbie and Knight Rider, where cars become loveable, huggable characters it’s just wonderful,” The Telegraph quoted him, as saying.
He added: “I’m a romantic. I write poetry about cars, I sing to them and talk to them just like a girlfriend. I know what’s in my heart and I have no desire to change. I’m not sick and I don’t want to hurt anyone, cars are just my preference.”
The 57-year-old man was just 15 when he first had sex with a car and insists that women or men, for that matter, have never been his preference.
The only other thing that he has had sex with other than cars was a helicopter. In fact, he insists that his most intense sexual experience was “making love” to the helicopter from 1980s TV hit Airwolf.
Apart from Vanilla, his other vehicle-partners are a 1973 Opal GT, named Cinnamon, and 1993 Ford Ranger Splash, named Ginger. He also had a five-year relationship with Victoria , a 1969 VW Beetle he bought from a family of Jehovah’s Witnesses, before Vanilla entered his life.
He has also admitted that most of the cars he has slept with were owned by strangers or car showrooms.
Its been 12 years since he has had relationship with a woman and this was something he could never relate to despite having sex with girls in his younger days.
Smith, a resident of Washington State in the US , did not make his secret fetish public until recently. He finally agreed to be interviewed as part of a channel Five documentary into mechaphilia, where he met other enthusiasts at a rally in California
Speaking on how his unusual passion developed, he said: “It’s something that grew as a part of me when I was a kid and I could not shake it. I just loved cute cars right from the beginning, but over the years it got stronger once I got into my teenage years and was my first having sexual urges.
“When I turned 13 and the famous Corvette Stingray came about, that car was pure sex and just an incredible machine. I wanted it. I didn’t fully understand it myself except that I know I’m not hurting anyone and I do not intend to.”
He added: “There are moments way out in the middle of nowhere when I see a little car parked and I swear it needs loving. There have been certain cars that attracted me and I would wait until night time, creep up to them and just hug and kiss them. As far as women go, they never really interested me much. And I’m not gay.
Now, Smith is a member of a global community of more than 500 car lovers brought together by internet forums. (ANI)
