Full Article Text:

Madcap Amy, 33, has been besotted with an 80ft high Gondola ride since she was a teenager and now plans to MARRY it. Amy rides the machine 300 times a year and even gazes at a picture of it while in bed. American Amy - who has never had a boyfriend - suffers from a rare condition called `objectum sexuality' where people develop attractions to objects.

She says she will marry the ride called 1001 Nachts and change her surname to Weber, the name of the ride's manufacturer.

She said: "I know people think it's weird but I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we'll be together forever."

Amy first fell in love with 1001 - based in an amusement park 80 miles from her home - when she was just 13.

Amy, from Pennsylvania, said: "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.

"While all my friends were going through their teens having crushes on boys, I was still thinking about 1001."

The unemployed church organist rides 1001 up to 30 times each time she visits.

Staff even allow her to go on 1001 after the theme park closes.mpu

Amy said: "I tell him how much I've missed him and what I've been up to since my last visit. And I kiss the bits I can reach. The staff are really understanding."

Incredibly Amy says she has great sex life with 1001.

A picture of 1001 adorns her bedroom ceiling and she says: "I use photos of 1001 to help me in private.

"We could never have sex where he lives because it's public and it would be indecent."

Amy added: "1001 makes me happier than any human ever could."

My commentary:

Speechless.

At least it's not a DS. Those Japanese people are creepy!

This reminds of that movie with Ryan Gosling where he falls in love with a sex doll, except on a much, much bigger scale.

Wait... She plans to MARRY the ride or just change her surname to Weber and keep on grinding the seats?

Did you hear about the man who married a Japanese Body Pillow?

Regardless, this is strange, to say the very least.

The movie is Lars and the Real Girl. I thought that was actually a very good movie!

Ah, thank you. I remember seeing previews of it. I think Gosling is a good actor. I may have to check it out.

That is one that slipped under my radar that I've always wanted to see. Maybe I'll check it out sometime soon.

It's funny, I looked up Gosling on Wikipedia to see what other movies he has been and forgot about his band, Dead Man's Bones. Decided to check out their stuff. Surprisingly good, kinda like Arcade Fire.

No problem! The movie seems to be in the same vein as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. If you like that movie and are interested in Lars and the Real Girl, I would also recommend you checking out Griff the Invisible. The movie wasn't really ever advertised in the US and I don't think it was shown outside of film festivals and indie theaters but I really liked it.

I have seen Eternal Sunshine and thought it was good. Never heard of Griff the Invisible.

There was a woman who married the Berlin Wall in 1979.

People are strange.

There was also another that married the Eiffel Tower. I think there has to be a list somewhere that documents strange things like this.

There was an episode of My Strange Addiction where a guy was in love with his car. He tells his dad about it for the first time on the show...you know what...yeah. I'll just leave this little gem right here:

The first thing I thought when I read this was "Japan".

But no, it was an American. Then I thought "Florida".

Wait a sec, I think the man was Korean. Wait, does Korea have Anime or something of that sort?
