13 People Who Married Inanimate Objects

Object sexuality: heard of it? It's a syndrome that causes people to fall in love with objects and identify them as a gender, give them a name, and have what they believe is a fulfilling, loving, relationship with these items. Yes, you read that right: there are (at least 13) people in the world who have fallen in love with, and married, inanimate objects (and you thought your love life was complicated).

OS is defined as "a pronounced emotional and often romantic desire towards developing significant relationships with particular inanimate objects." Individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation. For others, sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible and undesireable. Object-sexual individuals (people who enjoy the company of, and marry, inanimate objects) also often believe in animism, and sense reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, feelings, and are able to communicate.

How many people have married inanimate objects? Can people marry pillows? You'll find out all you want to know about object sexuality, and maybe some things you don't want to know, in this list of people who married non-living things.

    He Choo Choo Chooses It: Man Marries Steam Engine Train

    f t g r p @
    Joachim A has a thing for the inner workings of technical objects, which is great since he works as a repair man... but not so great for his spouse, a steam locomotive.

    "A love affair could very well begin with a broken radiator," Joachim says, "Repair jobs have often led to infidelity in the past." But they always seem to plow through it and stay together somehow.

    He stresses that people like him (the people on this list) aren't just fetishists. "For some people, their car becomes a fetish which they use to put themselves in the limelight. For the objectum-sexual, on the other hand, the car itself – and nothing else – is the desired sexual partner, and all sexual fantasies and emotions are focused on it."

    Needless to say, this guy loves to fix things.

    He realized he had a "thing" for things when he was 12. He's currently 45. He loves his train like he would a person, according to him: "you can reveal yourself to an object partner in an intimate way, in a way that you would never reveal yourself to any other person...[even] experience sexuality together."

    [insert sex-train pun here]
