Is this really true?
Jealous? Unless the cars were Tonkas I don’t see a problem.
As much as I enjoy keeping a car running, the study of the human machine fascinates me even more. Essentially anything can be a sex object, as sexuality is only in small part biological. According to the stereotypical calendars and magazines in a mechanic’s garage, cars are commonly associated with sex.
This gentleman claims to be orientationally asexual; it isn’t too much of a stretch to see how those emotions can be drawn toward objects that are already sexualized by the supposedly normal.
Whether it is true or not, I now have in image in my mind I can’t wash away. Thanks a lot!
BBC had a program a couple of years ago about people like this.
No matter what explanations were given, I just found it all to be incredibly strange. The program featured a man who has sex with cars, a woman who has sex with buildings, and a few other oddities that I don’t recall.
Like Whitey, I wish that I could un-see something like that.
And old quote from the TV Show Barney Miller…
Wojciehowicz - “Turn to any page in a Sears catalog and someone somewhere will want to have sex with it.”
“Whether it is true or not, I now have in image in my mind I can’t wash away. Thanks a lot!”
I hope it’s not the stick shift.
1,000 cars?! WOW! He really gets around!
@wx: “According to the stereotypical calendars and magazines in a mechanic’s garage, cars are commonly associated with sex.”
All that tells us is that if you work in a garage you can get away with keeping porn around. Who didn’t know that? You might as well say that bottom dresser drawers are associated with sex. Oops! I let the secret out! Quick! New hiding place!
That man clearly has a problem with his bearings.
I wonder…are forced-induction engines better than naturally aspirated engines?
