What better day than Valentine’s Day and which better blog than mine (a paean to the objects we love) to write a post on Objectum Sexuals? How to put this delicately… I love objects, but objectum sexuals lllooooovvvveee objects.
If that’s too oblique, what I’m trying to say is that these folks have sex with picket fences and marry The Eiffel Tower. Objectum sexuality is markedly different from sexual fetishism because in the former, the human views the inanimate object as an equal partner in a mutually loving relationship. There is, however, some crossover with polygamy, as certain structures, like The Berlin Wall, are popular partners for objectum sexuals.
It should come as a surprise to no one that the most prominent objectum sexuals are from San Francisco and Germany. (Because tone is hard to tell on the Internet, I say this with pride and not judgment.) Objectum sexuals are often also very good scale model builders. This should give hope to everyone out there who dreams of turning his/her passion into a viable career. Looking for an offbeat way to spend today’s holiday? Watch Married to the Eiffel Tower, the Objectum Sexuals documentary in five parts (all free) on YouTube. Happy Valentine’s Day!
