I found it interesting, not only because of the concept of objectum sexuality - and human behaviour never ceases to fascinate me - but also because of its similarity to my own sexual fixation in that I have no sexual attraction to men, other than for cocksucking.
And how often one sees a statue where the penis has obviously been handled by passersby?
"Some good news for a change: a young lady called Reighner Deleighnie has at last found the man of her dreams. The carer, from London, has fallen for a small marble statue of the god Adonis, and spends every day talking to it and fondling it. She has even given it a new name - Hans. I'm not sure how Greek gods feel about being given German names these days, but there we are."
"Deleighnie suffers from a condition called objectum sexuality, whereby people, usually women, become romantically attached to objects. Other cases include a Swedish woman who married a fence and a Californian woman who fell for a large tower, married it and is consequently now known as Erika Eiffel. And of course, there's Sally Bercow." *
*for those outside the UK, she is the tall, Labour-supporting wife of John Bercow MP, the short, Conservative Speaker of the House of Commons (he had to give up his party allegiance on becoming Speaker). She is constantly doing things which embarrass her husband, such as being photographed wearing only a sheet and appearing on I'm a celebrity get me out of here.
