Amy Wolfe loves roller coasters.
Not in the kind of “Whee! That was exciting! Let’s do that again,” but more in a “Wow! That machine is … hot and sexy” way.
When Amy was 13, she found herself … attracted to a roller coaster. Specifically, the 1001 Nachts ride in Pennsylvania.
Of course, that’s insane and means that Amy Wolfe has a mental disorder.
But that didn’t stop her from marrying the traveling ride that she visits at least ten times per year. In fact, she’s been on the ride more than 3,000 times and calls the roller coaster a “he.”
There’s a facebook video showing the interaction between 1001 Nachts and Ms. Wolfe. Warning: It’s amazingly creepy.
She calls the ride her husband and talks about wanting the machine’s “fluids.”
Amy is a church organist by occupation. She has a condition called “objectum sexuality,” which, as you could imagine, is sexual attraction for inanimate objects.
And yes – she’s even married the ride. So her name now is Amy Weber (the manufacturer of the ride).
“I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we’ll be together forever,” she said.
Miss Wolfe, er … Mrs. Weber, first fell for the ride when she was 13: “I was instantly attracted to him sexually and mentally.
“I wasn’t freaked out, as it just felt so natural, but I didn’t tell anyone about it because I knew it wasn’t ‘normal’ to have feelings for a fairground ride.”
Amy sleeps with a picture of the ride on her ceiling and carries the machine’s spare nuts and bolts around to feel closer to it.
The two share a “fulfilling and spiritual relationship,” but does not get jealous when other people ride her husband.
“Object Sexuality” is a recognized clinical disorder. Back in 2009, a woman named “Erika Eiffel” went on morning television to talk about her love for the Eiffel Tower and how her love for the iconic structure helped her become a world champion archer. She “married” the Eiffel Tower in 2007 and founded a group called “OS International.”
In 2012, a woman calling herself “Amanda Liberty” said that the Statue of Liberty is “my long-distance lover and I am blown away by how stunning she is. Other people might be shocked to think I can have romantic feelings for an object, but I am not the same as them.” The Daily Mail reports about Amanda:
She even says she has thought about tying the knot with ‘Libby’ as she affectionately calls it but opted not to ‘because so many others love her too’.
Amanda says she first fell in love with the monument after a friend posted a picture online of herself with the 151ft copper statue.
She has since visited the statue in person four times, where she admits to caressing it and leaning out of a window to kiss its hair.
Crazy? Yes. But welcome to the world of 2017. My question is: Does any government entity recognize marriage to an inanimate object?
Is this condition treatable? Or is it just best that these people don’t reproduce anyway?
