A man in Cincinnati has been arrested after he was spotted in an alleyway masturbating with a teddy bear. This is not the first time the man, Charles Marshall, has been arrested for inappropriate conduct with a teddy bear and, given his record, probably not the last time.
The Huffington Post notes that the 28-year-old has three previous convictions for public indecency or disorderly conduct with a teddy bear. This most recent time, which occurred on Wednesday, Marshall was cited for disorderly conduct.
According to The Daily Mail, the man’s first conviction for teddy bear sex was in 2010, when eyewitnesses at a restaurant found him masturbating using a teddy bear in the men’s bathroom at a public library.
As hard as it is to believe, sex with a teddy bear, or arousal from a teddy bear is a documented fetish. Cracked notes that the fetish is called Ursusagalmatophilia. They state that:
“This is also known as Plushophilia in some circles, although this term includes any stuffed animal and is not specific to teddy bears.”
During the most recent incident, Charles Marshall was spotted Wednesday evening by employees at a health clinic, who spotted him pleasuring himself in the alleyway by their building. Police were called in, and he was arrested.
Do you think he knowledge that people actually get hot and bothered over a plush toy may have you taking a second glance the next time you see a full-grown man with a teddy bear?
