Recently, this blog explored the criminal charges against men who have liaison with inanimate objects ranging from bikes to gates to picnic tables, click here. However, now Edward Smith has publicly admitted that he has made love to over 1000 cars, including his current serious relationship with ,a white Volkswagen Beetle named Vanilla. It appears that in England sex with a bike in private will get you jail time, but motorized “girlfriends” are apparently acceptable.
Smith has tried to explain why he started to have sex with cars at age 15 — around the time of both his puberty and learner’s permit.
“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.” A little bit off the wall? No, of course not. It just that most people she the Chevy as a location for teenage necking, they don’t throw the car out and take off with the car.
Smith, 57, insists: “I’m not sick and I don’t want to hurt anyone, cars are just my preference.” He says that he has never been attracted to men or women. They just lack the drive chain for a meaningful relationship.
For car purists, Smith may seem a bit too much the automotive libertine when he had a brief helicopter from 1980s TV hit Airwolf. In fairness to Smith, he may have been star-struck in the celebrity one-night stand. Yet, he is not exclusive. In addition to Vanilla, he spends time with a 1973 Opal GT, named Cinnamon, and 1993 Ford Ranger Splash, named Ginger.
He says that he corresponds with at least 500 other “car lovers.”
