Many of us have a 'type', whether that involves men, women, blondes, brunettes, short people, tall people or something else all together, but what about if your type turned out to be, er, a train station?
One 45-year-old woman has said she's in love with the Santa Fe train station in California (which she calls Daidra) and has now married 'her'.
Carol Santa Fe, a volunteer support worker, wears a ring and has changed her name since the marriage - which isn't legally binding, we should add - and takes a 45-minute bus ride to the station every day. She's apparently been in love with it since she was nine years old.
"I love her so much, she is so romantic," Carol said.
"We first consummated our love a few years ago when I felt the wall behind me, and I felt this energy.
"I came close to an orgasm and I was scared I'd get caught by the station staff. I don't ever want the security guards to find out - I am a closeted objectum sexual.
"But I only hide my sexual attraction to the station because I simply don't want people to find out and ban me from seeing her. It's not at all because I am ashamed."
So how do they get... physical, exactly?
Carol reckons they do the deed 'mentally', explaining: "There is a private bit where two walls meet, I go there to touch her, which I do by leaning against her with my clothes on. When I'm touching her, I feel as though it actually holds me and kisses me.
"I don't have physical sex with the station in public, I want to be respectful. I wouldn't do that with a human in public so why would I do it in this case?
"I do have sex with Daidra in my mind when I stand there. I especially like when I hear the trains rev up their engines - it turns me on."
Of course, she's not the only one with slightly eccentric tastes. 20-year-old mathematics genius Noorul Mahjabeen Hassan recently explained how she's planning to marry a copy of Tetris - and that's after the breakdown of her previous relationship with a calculator.

The maths student from Orlando, Florida (who prefers to go by the name of Fractal Tetris Huracan, apparently) started a relationship with the popular '80s puzzle game back in September. She identifies as an objectum sexual, which means she fancies objects and has previously had the hots for monorails, GPS systems and iPods.
"It started when I would play this game called Smash Run and I would hear the Tetris theme and I thought it was nice. Every time I heard it I would want to play Tetris," she said.
"All I did was play this game and kept thinking I want to play Tetris.
"I think Tetris is so beautiful, he is about perfection and he stimulates your mind. Physically I get that feeling that people in relationships get - that you know they are the right one."
