Edward Smith is a 63 year-old from Washington state who has a very unusual fetish: he enjoys having sex with cars.
Smith has bragged that he had sex with over 700 cars before settling down with the “love of his life,” a Volkswagon Beetle he named “Vanilla.”
According to Daily Mail, Smith is a mechaphile, meaning he is sexually attracted to cars and actually believes that he is in a relationship with one.
Back in his “wild days,” Smith boasts that he had sex with Jaguars and Mustangs and had threesomes in car parks and showrooms. He also claims that he had brief flings with helicopters and planes.
Smith began looking at car magazine the way most men look at pornography when he was a teenager. He then lost his virginity at the age of 14 to his neighbor’s Volkswagon Beetle.
“I got tempted one night to step outside to gently caress the car,” he recounted. “It did something for me, woke something up inside of me.”
As soon as he had sex with one car, he found it very difficult to stop.
“I look back at that thinking that was really risky business,” Smith continued. “That’s the history, yes, in fact, I cannot deny that there were a number of neighborhood car lots. I would go over to visit.”
Smith has clarified that he does not like any kind of penetration with cars.
“It’s hugging and holding the shape of the car close to me and talking to it a little bit,” he said. “The rest is just physical satisfaction… That’s done next to the car.”
“I basically just unzipped. I’ve never got naked on a car – in public,” Smith added.
Smith has been with his car girlfriend Vanilla for over thirty years now. In fact, they will celebrate their thirty-third anniversary in December.
“She certainly has become special,” he said of Vanilla back in 2012. “I got her in 1982 so it will be 30 years on December 23rd.”
Smith and Vanilla met when Smith was in a relationship with another Volkswagon Beetle named Victoria. When he saw Vanilla, however, it was love at first sight.
“I first met her, before I got her, when I lived here In Yelm, they had the local Jehovah’s witness church driver around in a white Beetle handing out literature,” he later recalled. “There was something about that white ’74 beetle when they pulled up to hand out their literature, that while they were talking, I couldn’t take my eyes off of her.”
He was able to purchase the car after the driver sold it to a local dealership some years later. Today, Smith greets Vanilla every morning and they “get intimate” on his private property.
Smith, however, is not a perfect man. He is also involved with a 1973 Opal GT, named Cinnamon, and 1993 Ford Ranger Splash, named Ginger. Luckily, Vanilla is forgiving and does not appear to get jealous of Smith’s relationships with other cars.
