The comparison of a woman to an automobile is a common theme in music. Robert Johnson was probably the first to do it in the song "Terraplane Blues". In it he complains that the car won't start because his girlfriend let someone else drive it. Sample lyrics:
"I'm on get deep down in this connection|hoo-well, keep tanglin' with these wires| And when I mash down on your little starter|then your spark plug will give me fire"

This is a poem that simply compared the female boody toa machine. It disrespects the female nature and dehumanizes women as a whole.

First of all, do not confuse the speaker of the poem with the poet. You do not know that Cummings has this view of sex; he may just as well be writing the poem as a warning to young women to watch out for men like the speaker of the poem.
Yes, this poem is a metaphorical presentation of a sexual encounter as a test drive of a new automobile - quite dehumanizing for women. Notice that it is presented entirely from the male point of view. This is highlighted by the speaker\'s slip of the tongue in the line, \"believe i we was/happy to see how nice she acted.\" The pleasure, as well as the focus, was only male; the action was quickly over and done with.
Perhaps we should call it a \"lust poem\" rather than a love poem.

OMG this poem is talking about sex, how the poet is taking the virginity of a woman, she being the “Brand-New” car. It begins with foreplay then they get it on until she has an orgasm and then they come to a stop.

.: wow :.

this is such an controversial poem because this is a compliment for women because us robots and men love our cars and love our women as well therefore taking care of them quite alot. on the other hand how women are being reduced to a simple machine can be argued as well
