Automobile Eroticism

As muse I would like to present a topic that might be of interest as writing subject.  This came to me via one of my professional list-serves.

A Case of Automobile Eroticism

A case will be presented and discussed involving a man in his mid 30’s who has a life-long sexual attraction to luxury automobiles.  During this individual’s childhood he would rub against the outside of luxury cars for sexual stimulation and as an adult he moved into the back seats of cars which led to an arrest for entering new cars at an automobile dealership. This unique paraphilia has been referred to as Mecaphilia, the sexual attraction to mechanical objects.  A detailed case history will be presented along with a discussion of paraphilia etiology theories and treatment options.

Happy Halloween!
