One woman growing up in the 1970s had an extremely bizarre fetish that led her to be attracted to inanimate objects, notably concrete walls. In 2008, Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer revealed that for 29 years she had been married to the Berlin Wall.
Her family name does actually translate to Berlin Wall in German and she claimed to have wed the concrete structure in 1979. She has actually been diagnosed with a rare condition called object sexuality. Object sexuality is a form of sexuality whereas you may have guessed one is extremely focused on inanimate objects. Individuals with this preference find themselves with extreme feelings of love, commitment or attraction to any sort of inanimate objects from concrete structures to basic electricals. In fact, even the mere thought of a relationship with a real human being seems crazy.
Mrs. Berliner-Mauer claims she first fell in love with the Berlin Wall during her early childhood at seven years old when she saw the Berlin Wall on television. From that point on she started saving up money to make a visit and collected as many photos of the structure as she could. When she made her sixth visit in 1979 she then decided to make everything official and married the Berlin Wall in 1979.
And she insists they had a loving and full relationship, though she is of course still a virgin in the human sense of the term. Mrs. Berliner-Mauer who now lives in Liden, Sweden advised that to this day she still finds the long horizontal lines to be extremely sexy.
She has even been quoted saying: “The Great Wall of China’s attractive, but he’s too thick – my husband is sexier.”
Of course, the worst happened when the wall was torn down in 1989. While most of mankind rejoiced the end of the Cold War and the demolishing of the Berlin Wall; Mrs. Berliner-Mauer wept for days. She has never returned and claimed that they mutilated her husband.
