Objectophilia - Romantically in Love with Objects

When i first learned about this condition, I was in disbelief, I didn't know that this exist!

OBJECTOPHILIA - (Wikipedia) Object sexuality or objectum sexuality, in German Objektophilie (OS), is a pronounced emotional and often romantic desire towards developing significant relationships with particular inanimate objects. Those individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation.


For some, sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible. Some object-sexual individuals also often believe in animism, and sense reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, and feelings, and are able to communicate. Contrary to sexual fetishism, the object to an OS person is viewed as their partner and not as a means to an end to enhance a human sexual relationship.



Married to Eiffel Tower

Erika LaBrie now Erika "Aya" Eiffel, an American World Archery champion athlete married the Eiffel Tower in a ceremony in 2007. She was first attracted to a bridge in her hometown then later on fell in love with LANCE, a bow (used in archery) but later on develop a strange affection and love for the Eiffel Tower that led to their "marriage". This is a bizarre sexual behavior because she couldn't fall in love with a human being.

  1. I would understand "liking" a particular stuff but not to the extent of "marrying" it for any other reason. That's way too odd.

    Some people are just unique in their own ways. I never thought you can actually marry an inanimate object. How will they even consumate the marriage?!? Hmmmmm..... I wonder.

  8. aha! i remember i've seen a movie show featured this kind of topic but that was too long ago i forgot the entire story.

    But, i think how this kind of behavior has something to do with what happened during their earliest stage of development. Fixated over something.
