TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Man claims to have had sex with nearly 1,000 cars

When we say we love cars, it really only means we're fascinated by them. We love how they look and perform. If we've got the means, we even start collecting them. One man, however, took his love of cars to a whole new plane by taking it to a sexual level.

In an interview with Barcroft TV, 63-year-old American Edward Smith admitted that he has had "sexual affairs" with almost 1,000 lovers, only one of which was a living, breathing human being.

According to Smith, he lost his virginity to a neighbor's Volkswagen Beetle. But after numerous mechanical conquests--which apparently included Mustangs, Jaguars and even the helicopter from the TV series Airwolf--Smith claims he's ready to settle down with a secondhand Beetle he bought 30 years ago which he calls "Vanilla."

"When I hold Vanilla in my arms, there's a powerful energy that comes from her in response to that," said Smith in the interview. "If anything happened to her, I'd be more than heartbroken."

Smith's sexual relationship with cars is referred to as mechaphilia, and according to him, there are over 500 other like-minded individuals in an online forum who share this kind of fetish.

Okay...that was weird.
