Sexual Metaphor: How Having Sex is Like Driving a Car

I’ve often heard sex compared to riding a bike, but what about driving a car? Ever considered how sex is like driving a car? Well, after reading this, you surely will!

Sex in metaphor:

  • 1. Like driving a car, sex takes lots of practice to be good at it. And at first, you’re likely to run over a few curbs and accidentally bump into some things you didn’t mean to. And no matter how well you studied the manual, nothing can replace hands-on time behind the wheel.

  • 2. In both, it doesn’t pay to be in a hurry. Drivers who are always in a hurry have more accidents, get lost more often, and worse case scenario, don’t reach their destination at all. (You make the analogy.)

  • 3. While there’s something to be said for making a solo trip--no one there to criticize your driving, you can play whatever music you like, and you can take all the side-tracks you want with no one to complain--it’s nice to have a friend along. Someone to point out places of interest, someone to take a turn behind the wheel if you get tired, and someone to share the memory in years to come.

  • 4. Although it may seem like a fun thing to do to stuff three passengers into a two-seater, ultimately, all three feel cheated, all three have second thoughts half way there, and all three are just too cramped to enjoy the ride.

  • 5. In sex as in driving a car, it’s important to consider the other drivers. Even though we all sometimes want to feel like we’re the only driver on the road, the fact is, sooner or later, others will come along. So, clean up your own spills, if you break down, move on as quickly as possible, and certainly don’t leave your trash behind for the next guy.

  • 6. In either case, you gotta spend some time under the hood. We may think it’s okay to just jump in, turn the key, and race off, but if we don’t occasionally check the hoses, belts, gaskets, and fluids, one day you’ll jump in it won’t start. (Not even if you push it!) Thoughtful maintenance is just as important as how well you steer it!

  • 7. Sometimes an older model can give you a better ride. It used to be said that a car had to have 50,000 miles on it to be properly “broken in.” Many cars today are half “broken” by the 5-zero milestone, so you’ll be lucky if they get you there at all! Experienced drivers know that lots of older models are more dependable, require less coaxing, and though they may not go as fast, they don’t quit on you before they get you to your destination.

  • 8. While driving fast and furious can be a lot of fun sometimes, you tend to miss out on a lot of beautiful sights along the way. If you simply don’t have time for the scenic route--then pedal-to-the-metal is definitely the way to go. But if you have the option, roll down the windows, flick on the tunes, and set the controls on cruise. That’s when the ride becomes more important than the destination.

  • 9. One of my daddy’s favorite sayings was, “A clean car rides better.” Though it took me years to understand the connection, I did come to realize that when your car is freshly washed and smelling good, you do tend to take more care in driving it. And ultimately, the ride does seem better. It’s exactly the same with sex.

  • 10. Although the main highway will get you there in one straight shot, it’s the road less traveled that often offers the greater adventure. Need I say more?

  • 11. You gotta obey the signs. “Yield” mean yield, running a “stop” sign can get you fined, and ignoring a “do not enter” can get your privileges revoked!

Can you think of others?

Another parallel between cars and sex struck me today, so I googled the topic and brought up this blog. Sex is like a car: If you have it and it works well, you hardly ever think about it. If you don't have it or if yours doesn't work well, you think about it all the time.
