Ever felt sick of dating humans? This man has had sex with over 700 cars
Have you had enough of dating humans? Why not make your next partner a Volkswagen Polo, or perhaps a Renault Clio?
Edwards Smith, 63, yesterday told Philip Schofield and Amanda Holden on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ that his first sexual experience was with a Volkswagen Beetle, and that he has had sex with over 700 cars.
The 63-year-old said his first experience of loving a car was when he was “tempted to step outside” one evening in 1965, and have sex with his neighbour’s car.
“I began an interest in the beauty of cars when I was turning just 15 years of age,” he said, noting the “gentle caresses” he gave to the VW Beetle, and saying: “It woke something up inside me.”
Smith identifies as a mecaphile, meaning he is attracted to machines, and as well as cars, has had a relationship with a helicopter and planes.
Describing the practice of making love to a car on a night out, he said it was “pretty risky business”.
“It has to do with the body itself. I’m not really attracted to any sort of, may I say, penetration.
“It is hugging and holding the shape of the car close to me and actually talking to it a little bit. And then of course, the rest is just physical satisfaction – masturbation is, I guess, the word.”

Smith said he had been with the love of his life, a VW Beetle, since 1982, and despite a relationship with a Ford Ranger called Ginger, he said Vanilla did not resent him.
He makes love to his cars on private property now.
“I don’t like to pretend to the point where I forms sociological or mental difficulties, I don’t let it get that heavy… but when I hold them in my arms I do feel an energy that comes from each one of them.
“It kind of depends what mood I’m in. Lately, at my age, the libidinal energies have kind of calmed.
“But it is amazing that beyond that there’s a deep, very deep love – I wouldn’t want anything to separate us.”
