Yeah, then why don’t you and the Eiffel tower get a room!

I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I say I “love” the Eiffel Tower – how can you not enjoy such a magnificent structure? The design, the sheer beauty of it, and the atmosphere around the tower in such an awesome city make it one of the most popular landmarks in the world.

But there are some people who take their love of the structure just a tad too far.

That is what Erika La Tour Eiffel has done. Not only did she “marry” the Eiffel tower, she actually has sex with it.

Let that sink in for a minute – this lady is so in love with the tower that she climbs it, and consummates her relationship with the Eiffel Tower.

These people are called “objectum sexuals” and their relationships are with objects instead of people. Another lady is so in love with the Golden Gate bridge that she sleeps with a piece of the bridge, and does stuff to it I don’t want to know about.

Bizarrely, this behavior is not against the law in France.

Photo of the Day (5/4/08)

No matter how many times I visit San Francisco, I never get tired of looking at the Golden Gate bridge. Whether I’m downtown, across the bay in Berkeley or Oakland, or taking off at SFO, this iconic landmark perpetually anchors my view of this great city. So I was particularly amused when I saw this shot of everyone’s favorite San Francisco bridge by ohad*. Considering it’s one of the most photographed landmarks in all of the Bay Area, it’s hard to find a photo that’s a not a “cliched” image of the bridge shrouded in clouds. But this shot really caught my eye – the way it plays with perspective, the sense of movement it conveys and the unique angle all come together for a fun, eye-catching photo.
