Compulsions drive people to do very strange and unusual things. But eating couch cushions? That may very well be the strangest yet.

Adele, a 30-year-old woman from Bradenton, Fla., recently came forward on a TV show about her bizarre taste for foam materials.

The woman is featured on the TLC program "My Strange Addiction" munching on bite-sized pieces of sofa stuffing -- and even going so far as to prepare snack-sized servings of couch cushions.

Sounds like Pica...the urge to eat things that offer no nutritional value. Dirt is common, pencils, paper products...you name it.

I agree with fluffy. I think that that show has already shown a woman who was addicted to eating at least three sticks of chalk per day. I wonder if couch woman suffers from cotton mouth? Foamy material sounds like it'd make you thirsty.

I used to eat grass sometimes as a child. I also ate a dog treat one time because my dad somehow convinced me that it was a bone shaped cookie. lol

I watched that the other night & start top consider it myself. Looks appetizing. JOKING! That's weird. Strange how certain traumas from childhood effect us as adults in subtle & sometimes extreme ways.

Wow thats strange.Almost as bad as eating metal,yuck.I would think eating the foam would be extremely unhealthy.She'll probably end up with cancer if she doesn't stop that disgusting habit.I have a nasty habit of chewing on pen caps a lot especially when I am stressed,but I would never think about swallowing them or making them into a meal-Yuck.

Some of the people on this show are only eating wierd things so they can be on tv. They think that as long as they're on tv it's cool, no matter what it is they are doing.

Wow, and I thought that chick I used to know that ate all purpose flour from the bag was weird. BTW, the article mentions Pica. Weird stuff. :blink: I do a lot of strange things... but I eat food.

Sounds like a cry for attention, and these days all it takes is some self harm, idiotcy, and perhaps disfigurement for good messure.

But that's so stupid. That's like bragging that you were on an episode of Cops. :unsure: I just don't get some people, lol.

To some people even bad attention is good attention because it's still attention.

I am sure she likes the taste and has nothing to do with being an attention whore.
