Facts about Objectophilia

Tower Bridge in London

The internet is full of information about all kinds of weird and wonderful fetishes. In my research I’ve come across a few that I feel are worthy of sharing, so here is the first entry in my series of posts about interesting kinks.

Objectophilia, also known as Objectum Sexuality (OS) is an orientation defined by one’s sexual attraction to inanimate objects.

Just as many of us find ourselves drawn to certain aspects of a person’s appearance when seeking a partner, Objectum Sexuals are captivated by the physical attributes of the objects they desire.

Many OS individuals consider themselves to be “animists.” As such they believe that objects possess a living energy and that they are capable of reciprocating love. For many Objectum Sexuals, the relationship they form with their object(s) of choice is far deeper than purely sexual. They feel a true sense of love and appreciation that goes well beyond the physical.

Contrary to mainstream media depictions, OS is rarely practiced in public settings. While major landmarks (such as the Eiffel Tower) are beloved by many in the OS community, most of them believe as many of us do that sexual intimacy is a private act. The use of scale models is a preferred method for maintaining emotional and physical contact with such public objects. Objectum-Sexuality Internationale openly condemns the 2009 film Married to the Eiffel Tower for its exploitative take on their lifestyle.

There is little research to explain the reasons behind the development of OS. Some studies suggest a correlation between Objectum Sexuality and Asperger’s Syndrome, whereby OS provides a sexual outlet when physical contact with another person feels completely overwhelming and unnatural.

It was once believed that only women identified as OS, but men have recently come forward to claim their place in the community.
