Objectophillia, or sexual fetish toward particular inanimate objects is something that become popular in recent years. Object sexuality is becoming more and more popular, and people have accepted it as something normal.
Erika Eiffel is such person. She is in love with the Eiffel Tower, and she has even taken her name from her partner. She is one of the most vocal representatives of “object sexuality”, and in this video, she describes the challenges and advantages of being in love with an inanimate objects.
Erika fell in love with the Eiffel Tower in 2004, and she even married the tower in 2007. Before she was in love with the Eiffel Tower, Erika was in love with the Berlin Wall for 20 years.
One of the biggest challenges of being in love with a public object is that “you cannot be truly intimate”.
She starts her story by telling how she was in love with the Golden Gate Bridge. She states that she is a woman, and despite the vast differences between her and the bridge, they are very much in love.
And when she speaks of the Eiffel Tower, she refers to “her and she”. So in a way, you can say that people who are sexually attracted to inanimate objects don’t mind if the object is male or female.
