Meet Eija-Riita Berliner-Mauer, whose surname means Berlin Wall in German. Eija-Riita 54, wed the actual structure Berlin Wall three decades ago in front of a handful of guests, and claims she is still happily married.
Diagnosed with Ojectum-Sexuality, Eija-Riita first “fell in love” with the concrete structure when she saw it on television at the tender age of seven. She remains a virgin with humans, however she has insisted that she has a full, loving relationship with the wall.
Objectum sexuals (OS) are people who fall in love with objects, developing significant relationships and sometimes even sexual ones. OS people believe their love with the objects are reciprocal and that they can communicate with them.
Meet Erika La Tour Eiffel, 37, who wedded the Eiffel Tower. Her wedding ceremony was attended by a handful of friends, and she has since changed her name legally to reflect the bond. In the documentary, Woman Who Married the Eiffel Tower, Erika is seen on their one-year anniversary, visiting the Eiffel Tower to consummate their marriage. Erika lifts up her skirt, and straddles one of the beams with literally nothing between them.
Guess people who fall in love with real dolls aren’t that strange after all.
“Someone who falls in love with objects are in control of that relationship on their own terms. Their objects will not let them down,” explains Jerry Brooker, one of the psychotherapists interviewed in the documentary.
So if a good friend or family member invites you to their wedding with, let’s say KICC, would you attend?
