Sex With (Not In) Cars

By: Catherine Strawn / May 23, 2008

Edward Smith has gotten around, except he’s not interested having sex with women. No, he sleeps with CARS. That’s right. The 57 year old’s current “girlfriend” is a Volkswagen Beetle he calls “Vanilla,” but Edward says he’s had sex with at least 999 others. He had his first at 15. “I’m not sick and I don’t want to hurt anyone,” Edward said. “Cars are just my preference.” While not attracted to men or women, he has gotten hot and bother over a 1973 Opal GT named Cinnamon, a 1993 Ford Ranger Splash named Ginger, and a 1969 Beetle named Victoria, to name a few. “I appreciate beauty and I go a little beyond appreciating the beauty of a car only to the point of what I feel is an expression of love,” he said. Okay, I’m confused. Does he really have sex with cars, or is this a metaphor? And what happens to the cars after he’s done with them? [NY Daily News]
