A 52-year-old New York man has been rolling himself up in various rugs for the past 15 years: He loves the feeling of being trampled over - especially when it's women in high heels.
He said, 'I was born with this obsession of having weights and people on me since I was a little kid. My favorite play with my cats was to have them walk all over me.'
To satisfy his bizarre fetish, he visits nightspots around Manhattan, wraps himself up in carpet, lies on the floor and straps a sign reading 'step on carpet' to his body.
He says 'the more people, the better'. (In July 2009 he set his personal record, inviting twelve women to stand on him.)
Now he's considered as somewhat of a local celebrity on the underground bar and club scene, and he charges up to $200, excluding tips, for offbeat performances at parties.
People are welcome to do as they please with him, from dancing on his chest to jumping on his legs.
Despite being squashed and prodded, he says that he has never been injured.
