Fetish of the week: mechaphilia

Sexy little critters, aren’t they? Don’t they just get you all hot ‘n’ bothered?
Seriously, dudes will fuck anything.

Man admits having sex with 1,000 cars

A man who claims to have had sex with 1,000 cars has defended his “romantic” feelings towards vehicles.

Edward Smith, who lives with his current “girlfriend” – a white Volkswagen Beetle named Vanilla, insisted that he was not “sick” and had no desire to change his ways.

“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,” he said.

“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.

“I’m a romantic. I write poetry about cars, I sing to them and talk to them just like a girlfriend. I know what’s in my heart and I have no desire to change.”

He added: “I’m not sick and I don’t want to hurt anyone, cars are just my preference.”

Mr Smith, 57, first had sex with a car at the age of 15, and claims he has never been attracted to women or men.

But his wandering eye has spread beyond cars to other vehicles. He says that his most intense sexual experience was “making love” to the helicopter from 1980s TV hit Airwolf.

As well as Vanilla, he regularly spends time with his other vehicles – a 1973 Opal GT, named Cinnamon, and 1993 Ford Ranger Splash, named Ginger.

Before Vanilla, he had a five-year relationship with Victoria, a 1969 VW Beetle he bought from a family of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

But he confesses that many of the cars he has had sex with have belonged to strangers or car showrooms.

His last relationship with a woman was 12 years ago – and he could not bring himself to consummate it, although he did have sex with girls in his younger days.

Mr Smith, from Washington state in the US, kept quiet about his secret fetish for years, but agreed to be interviewed as part of a channel Five documentary into “mechaphilia”. He is shown meeting other enthusiasts at a rally in California

Talking about how his unusual passion developed, Mr Smith 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 once I got into my teenage years and was my first having sexual urges.

“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.”

He added: “There are moments way out in the middle of nowhere when I see a little car parked and I swear it needs loving.

“There have been certain cars that attracted me and I would wait until night time, creep up to them and just hug and kiss them.

“As far as women go, they never really interested me much. And I’m not gay.”

Mr Smith is now part of a global community of more than 500 “car lovers” brought together by internet forums.

If you own a used or new caryard, be on the look out for this dude:

    This probably puts the 1968 Disney film “The Love Bug” in the porn category?
    (more amazingly, my recollection that the film was 1968 was spot on! How sad…)

    Pleeeze, pleeze, can they switch to mechano-p0rn from human female p0rn?

    ‘Twould be a blessed relief.


  3. FAB Libber aka Dave the Squirrel

    I think I’d be happy if all menz developed this fetish, full stop. Leave all the females alone.
    Used car lots would become cruising sites… AutoTrader magazine would become a porn rag… F1 racing would replace strip-joints… Smash-up-derbies would be for the bdsmers… and rape trials would be all about some dude violating another dude’s car (awww come on, with *that* paintjob, you just know the sedan was just asking for it)

    I think my favorite part is even if a man is having a relationship with inanimate objects which he treats as human he STILL manages to cheat around on it. Really, he needs TWO other cars along side his “girlfriend” car? Is Vanilla just not sexy enough for him? Will he drop her for a new Mustang in a few years? Will it be a BLONDE Mustang? Jesus, not only will they stick their dick in anything but it seems men will also CHEAT on anything as well (and rape, I guess, since cars are incapable of giving consent). Here’s hoping his dick gets tetanus one of these days. -_-

    But at least this guy managed to top the dude who married a pillow on the male weirdness/ickiness scale. Well played, car rapist. Well played.

    Are you sure this isn’t a hoax?

    Whatever. Not going to spoil my breaky. I glanced at the story. Not going back.


  6. Sargasso Sea

    LOL! Comments! LOL!

    And if he’s never been attracted to men nor women, then why are his masturbatory receptacles feminized with labels like “girlfriend” and *stripper* (or tranz!) names?

    Rapist mentality is rapist mentality no matter what feminized *matter* it is directed towards. Tetnus hex, indeed!

    Yes, UNILATERAL sexuality is what I was thinking the whole way through! And EXACTLY, it IS a rapist mentality. Need to get back on writing about this. The NAMING is another great point. Analogizing an inanimate object to the sexual role that females are supposed to play is clearly dehumanizing. DUH.

    Classic mocktacular.

    You might want to be careful about what you’re saying.
    Kiwifem, you can lose the threatening tone, young missy.

    Several of the most famous objectophiles are women, actually.
    Nice of you to drop in unsubstantiated bullshit, most likely exceptionalism, but that does not fly. Nearly every dude I have known has had a fetish, and I have never known a female with a fetish. Perhaps female fetish is ‘common’ with the people YOU hang about with, the bdsmers and sex-mozzers, but that does not mean it is common in the regular population of females.

    A heads up for the other bloggers, if kiwifem should comment at your blogs:
    From the first post of kiwifem’s blog (18 Apr 2011)

    Hello and welcome to Kiwifem, in which I [will probably, but who knows] blog about stuff that interests me. Which may include, but also may not include, feminism, sex-positivity, polyamory, BDSM, LGBT issues, sex worker rights, and my perplexed feelings towards the Oxford comma. [The decision to use one just now has me slightly stressed.] Probably a bit of porn too. Oh and cats, definitely cats and their level of adorability. Because if there is anything the interwebz needs more of, it is porn and adorable cats being adorable.

    So crawl back to your sex mozzing, pro-pornstitutioning, bdsming sicko world. And ffs, stop calling yourself a feminist. Promoting harmful recreational and occupational practises for women as a class is NOT feminist.


  10. kiwifem

    I’m not young at all. Quite old actually.
    There certainly was no ‘threat’ implied, I was asking you to be careful about demonising people for being objectophiles because that would be attacking women and I don’t think attacking other women is particularly productive or helping to advance our cause – men are the enemy, not women. Suit yourself though, I won’t comment again on that sort of thing.
    I’ve never met anyone with a fetish either (that I know of). There was a documentary on objectophiles on Discovery and the people they focussed on were female (the main woman was in love with the Eiffel Tower, as I recall – she’s quite famous).
    Lastly, I do not have a blog of any kind. That’s certainly not me or my writing in the linked blog. If I wanted to make a blog, I’d make it on WordPress.


  11. Undercover Punk

    Criticizing objectophila is NOT attacking women. Just because a few women happen to be murdrers, doesn’t mean we can’t speak critically about the PRACTICE of murder and express our opinions that it is WRONG. Same logic you just used.


  12. Undercover Punk

    Oh, and does the Eiffel tower lady grind on the actual structure in order to orgasm? And is she monogomous? Does she masculinize the tower? Name it as a man? Even if she does it still lacks the necessary political analysis parallels to the KIND of sexuality that is typical of her sex (females) and that is propagandized in the media and through the porn industry. By which I mean, MALE sexuality can be characterized by unilateral pleasurr and dependence on an object to object-ify. Market- driven female sexuality, on the other hand, is characterized by vicarious pleasure through the male gaze/being desired BY another.


  13. FAB Libber aka Dave the Squirrel

    OK kiwifem, then I apologise for confusing you with an online doppleganger. You might want to at least put some sort of basic outline of your political beliefs/principles on your WP addy. That should then clear up the misidentification.

    However, you did do the dumbass thing (typical of the sex mozzers) with not only that comment, but some of your prior comments as well.

    It is not ‘unfeminist’ to criticise females deliberately doing/promoting harmful beliefs and practises that are not beneficial to women’s liberation. There are many (female) anti-feminists out there, promoting stuff for their own personal good and well-being at the expense of most women. This shit needs to be called out. I am not a warm fuzzy feminist who will sit quietly by whilst anyone, including female(s), undermine the greater class of women. This includes anything like promoting porn, prostitution, ‘reclaiming slut’, so-called sex-positivism, and all the other garbage that is actually harmful to women both individually and as a class. And when tranz also participate in that crap, they get in my sights as well.

    It matters not that some woman thinks she ‘loves’ the eiffel tower or not (exceptionalism). Fetish is by far the domain of males, and most of them have at least some form of sexual fetish. I gather because they are not in touch with their humanity, and therefore, sexual expression becomes problematic unless there is fetish to facilitate sexual arousal and desire.

    For me personally, touch and sensation (and feelings/intimacy) are the big turn-ons sexually, and fetishes are the huge turn-off. That is why the sex-mozzers are the sex mozzers, due to their cartoon/formula sexuality. And the stupid dress-ups.


  14. Sargasso Sea

    Ha! I was going to say that dildos don’t count when we’re talking “objectophiles are women” but it seems we’re talking about the eiffel tower (wtf?) being the *object*. This case of *objectophilia* is so famous that I’ve never heard of it!

    And holy cannoli kiwifem, telling a woman to “be careful” about what she says? Doesn’t get any more MALE than that if you catch my drift.


  15. jilla

    Who do you know that we do? If they can’t vouch for you, then I’m going on you being the mansplaining, trans supporting dupe who runs that “kiwifem” blog.


  16. kiwifem

    I’m getting a distinctly unwelcoming ‘vibe’ here, so I’ll move along and leave you all to your discussions and read from the sidelines. From the comments and assessments directly at me, I gather this will hardly be any kind of loss to your group.
    Jilla, I have no idea who I know that you know. I’m from the southern hemisphere (hence the ‘kiwi’ in my log in name). But by the same token, I’ve no idea who you are, so you are quite welcome to think that I’m whomever you want me to be; it does not change who I actually am.

    If you’re interested, here’s a clip from the documentary about the woman who is in love with the Eifell Tower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POTA5aZxbQA


  17. FAB Libber aka Dave the Squirrel

    I’m getting a distinctly unwelcoming ‘vibe’ here
    It has you that has consistently been aloof and obscure, with a style that is far more like the mozzers – which in a nutshell, is why you don’t get a welcoming vibe. Change that, be a bit more honest, stop telling people off (when we don’t even know who you are ffs), and perhaps your reception will be warmer.

    Yaddah yaddah yaddah on the documentary, which I won’t bother watching. Don’t you know that the meeja manipulate stuff? They throw focus on the one in a billion woman that does something, whereas every second dude can do it and it’s no biggie.


  18. kiwifem

    Change myself so that others here will like me better? That’s something I’ve not done since I was very, very young. No, I think instead I’ll find a group which is more in tune with my views and thoughts. This is clearly not that group.
    Good luck with your activism, every teaspoon counts 🙂


  19. jilla

    This is a radical feminist blog. You are giving off distinctly non-rf vibes.

    Give us some links where you post so we can have a look at who you hang with.


  20. FAB Libber aka Dave the Squirrel

    Change myself so that others here will like me better?

    Good fucking grief. There you go, twisting words again (and yes, that again is the style of the mozzers). I advised to change your ‘style’, not yourself. To be less aloof and obscure etc etc.

    We don’t know you from anywhere, you don’t even comment at the other places on the blogroll. You (recently) come out of nowhere, being obscure, generally unfriendly. The coincidence of a bdsm blog, also recent, is very strange – and yet, we will take your word that it is someone else. What makes me second guess that is that you continue twisting words around, playing emotional games (which is very bdsm). As someone who is new to the group, it is up to YOU to prove your intentions and good faith. The rest of the people here comment at a similar range of blogs, and most have been around for quite a while.

    But hey, you are welcome to go off and find other blogs. However, if you behave in the same way at the new places as you did here, then you will be continually searching for new places.


  21. FAB Libber aka Dave the Squirrel

    And, as for ‘old’, frankly kiwifem, I would have put you in the early-mid thirties age bracket, which does not qualify as ‘old’ here. Again, that assessment was based on styles and attitudes, and spidey senses…

    Prepare to be shocked: Men are groomed into objectophilia from young ages.
    Here’s an example: http://www.reuffel.de/detail/ISBN-9783907588307/Jacobi-Silvia-L%C3%83%C6%92%C3%82%C2%BChn-Matthias-B%C3%83%C6%92%C3%82%C2%BCcker-Jutta/Brunos-gro%C3%83%C6%92%C3%85%C2%B8e-Liebe

    This is a children’s book for children from the age of four. It is about a hare (although I suspect it’s actually a rabbit) called Bruno, and his undying love for … a carrot! No really, he drags it around, calls it his girlfriend, and cuddles with it. Until winter comes and he gets hungry. Then he eats it, and it is pointed out that “she” doesn’t seem to mind his eating her. (she doesn’t say anything. Which counts as consent in this book).

    Will a boy who is read this book as a child become sexually attracted to carrots? No. He will, however, feel (even more) justified in treating women as objects, objects he’ll use as long as he pleases, and then consume/kill.

    What the hell was the author thinking?
