    Default Am I the only person who appreciates the feeling of pointed objects?

    I've enjoyed rubbing corners of pillows, freshly sharpened pencils, and anything thorny against my fingertips or my chin for time immemorial. I'm sure this is some sort of OCD.

    Hedgehogs are not that sharp...they are fun. Kinda stinky, too.

    Mike, I don't think you are OCD...a little pointedly fixated, maybe....

    Mike, if you ever do get a chance to hold a hedgehog, do it. Now THAT is the pet for you. Plenty pointy, rolls up in a ball, not too sharp (mentally or physically.)

    Eww. That's nasty.

    Honestly, I feel sorry for the porcupine.

    I just hope Mike_Lowery's OCD doesn't extend to hammering a nail to his 'nad.

    Naw, I love my wee-wee even though it's not pointed.

    Other pointed objects I find myself playing with throughout the day: cuts on keys, mechanical pencil tips, staples, tines on a fork, and pushpins.

    Yes, sounds like some sort of disorder. But OCD, for instance, is not considered a "problem" unless it disrupts your life. For example, if you progressed to stabbing yourself with sharp objects, well, that might qualify for needing a medical/mental professional consultation.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    I only like the feel of pointy objects when they are pointed away from me, or securely folded and in my pocket.

    When I was a youngster in France, the gypsies used to cover the hedgehogs in clay and bake them in the camp fire. When cooked and cut open, they tasted just like chicken done in their own juice.
    At the same time they would do potatoes in the fire. Lovely but they made your face black.

    It doesn't sound like OCD, as long as you're not going out of your way to feel every pointed object or you have some kind of daily ritual you HAVE to perform involving the objects. Some people just have a preferences for certain things. I have a small, worry stone that I sometimes smooth over with my thumb while I drive long distances, especially when I get upset. And if I have a really soft blanket over me, I tend to "knead' it between my hands.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you're cutting yourself with your pointy objects. If you're pressing the pointy part of a key into your thumb, to the point of pain, that can release endorphins, which give out a quick "high" that a lot of cutters experience. But if you keep doing it, you'll become numb to the sensation. And I'm not recommending anyone doing this, just explaining some people's fascination with sharp/pointy things.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Was it in a Woody Allen movie where he had a stoner look whenever he held onto a certain round ball?

    Yes, the "orb" from "Sleeper."
