The word, caress has taken on a new, metallic and unexpected meaning in the world of Edward Smith, aged 57. This man claims to be attracted to cars and confesses that his first sexual (metallic?) encounter with a vehicle occurred when he was 15 years old! Claiming he has never been attracted to women or men for that matter, he is neither gay nor straight, but rather just a man who likes to make love to cars.
Smith who hails from Washington state, kept his predilection a secret for many years until recently he decided to come out of the garage. His condition is a fetish known as mechophilia. It was the subject of a documentary done by Channel Five in which Smith as well as other metallic Lotharios were interviewed.
When asked how this strange fetish 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… 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.”
Edward Smith currently lives in sin with his current girlfriend who happens to be a white Volkswagen Beetle that answers to the name, “Vanilla.”
Smith claims to be as romantic as the next guy. He sings to and writes poems about his favorite cars. He admits that sometimes he is unfaithful and his eye wanders beyond cars. His most intense sexual encounter was making love to the helicopter used in the television show, Airwolf.
Although he cares for Vanilla, he is not true to her either, and spends time with other home wreckers: a 1973 Opal GT, named Cinnamon, and 1993 Ford Ranger Splash, named Ginger. Still, Edward admits, he prefers to have anonymous sex with cars in showrooms. Although he had experienced sex with girls when he was a teenager, he was unable to consummate the last relationship he had with a woman, which occurred some twelve years ago.
Mr. Smith is now part of a global community of more than 500″car lovers” brought together by Internet forums.
One can only wonder if a “kiss and tell” book is in the metallic works!
