Object sexuality or Objectophilia is a pronounced sexual desire towards particular inanimate objects. This is a rare form of fetishism and those with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of arousal, attraction, love and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation. Sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible. The term was coined in the 1970s by a woman named Eija-Riitta Eklöf Berliner-Mauer from Liden, Sweden, who was married to the Berlin Wall. Object-sexual individuals also believe in animism, or the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, feelings, and are able to communicate.
Many object-sexual individuals have a main lover or spouse, but they also may have attractions to and relationships with other objects. Some would argue that some object-sexual individuals, therefore, believe in polygamy.
