An observation documentary about women who fall in love with large objects rather than people.
Married to the Eiffel Tower is a documentary that follows a few women who’s sexuality is characterized as objectophilia/objectum sexual (OS), meaning “sexual or romantic attraction focused on particular inanimate objects.” In this documentary, the objects include the Golden Gate Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Berlin Wall, a guillotine, picket fences (ouch! but not more than the guillotine), and more. They travel to “be” with these objects, enter committed relationships with them, and carry model replicas so they are never too far away from their loved ones. I say “ones,” because some of the women in this documentary are in poly relationships with these places and things. Erika Eiffel is the activist in the group, appearing on talk shows like Good Morning America, and she a competitive archer with a bow for a beau. And, you guessed it, she’s married to the Eiffel Tower, has an Eiffel Tower chest tattoo, and took the tower’s name after their marriage. OS has a flag, and an online support group established by Eiffel called OS Internationale. I have a lot of thoughts about this, and instead of sharing them here, I’ll instead encourage you to watch the documentary yourself:
