Talk about loving your job. A little too much. An Irish postman was caught having sex with a customer’s mailbox.
According to The Belfast Telegraph, a postal customer noticed “suspicious” activity in front of his mailbox. So he installed a camera above the door to catch the suspected “mailbox masturbator” who really liked his mailbox.
Footage revealed a van from the Irish Global Mail Company walking to the door, sliding his “postmaster general” into the mailbox, and rubbing it against the opening. “On a second occasion,” says the Telegraph “The offender noticed the camera while he was carrying out the sex act.”
The postie was later identified as 52-year-old David Camblin. He pleaded guilty to three counts of damaging a door and floor over a six-month period. Apparently, he was a repeat mailbox offender and started going “steady” with the mailbox. When police interviewed Camblin, he could offer no explanation other than to describe the act as “spontaneous”.
The judge ordered the mailbox offender to pay £500 ($650) in compensation, placed on 12 months’ probation and ordered to do 100 hours of community service.
Objectfilia or “object sexuality” is a sexual fetish where people get sexually fixated on an object. In the past few years, newspapers have reported people getting it on with bikes, public sculptures, picnic tables, park benches, a cardboard cut-out of a Rite Aid sunglasses model, and a gumball machine. In the case of the picnic table, the guy banged the hole where the umbrella goes. In the case of the park bench, the guy went to town on one of the holes in the metal bench, got his junk caught in there, and the fire dept had to take the him–and the entire bench–to the ER.
“Amanda Liberty” told the Daily Mail 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.” Three weeks later Reighner Deleighnie declared her love for a short marble statue of Adonis who she named “Hans”.
Erika Eiffel, who adopted her name after a 2007 “marriage” to the Eiffel Tower, founded OS Internationale, an educational website and online site for people identifying or researching the condition to love objects.
Our only advice is to think twice about having sex with anything in public, because someone could be filming it, and you could end up in a youtube video forever going to town with a picnic bench.
