More Love (And Sex?) In The News

Think you have troubling taste in love objects?

Apparently, the psychiatric condition known as objectum sexuality is an (as yet) overlooked target of recent legislative attempts to regulate reproductive and romantic rights.

A British woman, Amanda Whittaker, recently made the news for her ardent attraction to the Statue of Liberty. ‘Tis true!

The 27-year old was quoted in the London Sun referring to Lady Liberty as her “long-distance lover.” It seems she was amorously attached to a set of drums, but Ms. Whittaker threw over her percussion instrument for a more monumental (and dare I say concrete) objet de désir.

Should this particular affinity afflict a noticeable number of Americans, might we see the spate of Republican reproductive legislation expanding to include this psycho-sexual lifestyle? Or, if no men are involved (when speaking of the women), will it be tolerated – unless it appears to be corrupting our collective cultural values?

Will the War Against Women soon preclude any female adoration of inanimate objects?

Oh dear. I best place any and all sensual statuary back in the closet.

I fear our souvenirs of tourist trips will soon be subject to greater regulation, even those we routinely purchase in such renowned department stores as Sephora or Galerie Lafayette.

Now, now. Don’t blame me alone for the potentially dire direction of this musing. After all, I don’t subscribe to the notion that one should have sex only for reproductive purposes. I believe sexuality is marital glue, a healthy and natural human activity, and an essential and joyful part of a committed relationship.

Still, even as the flap over female fecundity continues, might the spread of objectum sexuality mean economic opportunity for specific sectors? And the canard - adorable little objet that it is – will it make its way to our fair shores?

  1. I have no problem with strange sex but, this is a bit too strange for my taste. I’m too needy to ever fall for an inanimate object. I’m afraid I would spend most of our time together objectifying the poor object.

  2. hmmmm, we have been known to have a moment de reverie over satin-y-objets.

    but you might have guessed that already from our posts ;-)

    lovely to visit you dear D.

      Il fallait un observateur en France pour apprécier mon humour ? Eh oui… Et les canards sont mignons, n’est-ce pas ? (En France ils se vendent et s’achètent sans se tracasser). Passez un bon weekend Alain !
