Forniphilia is a sub-set of bondage and sexual objectification in which a person's body is incorporated into a chair, table, cabinet or other piece of furniture.

Allen Jones' sculptures Hatstand, Table and Chair, made in 1969, which show semi-naked women in the roles of furniture, are clear examples of the depiction of the fantasy of sexual objectification.

Examples

  • The hentai anime Cool Devices features women used as furniture in the underground sado-masochist world of the first episode.
  • Les Krims's Heavy Feminist with Wedding Cake (1970)
