"Polymorphously perverse" means they derive sexual pleasure for non-genital areas of the body. Either R0lf doesn't understand the term, or he needs to make his case better.

Hey, Hulot does have a suspicious amount of fun with those leather chairs....

There is definitely something childlike about the chaste, tentative flirtations between Hulot and his leading ladies; and, perhaps separately, Hulot's interactions with technology and everyday objects probably fall somewhere in the "perverse" column, though perhaps naïveté is a better term. I'm not sure dragging Freud into it is very productive, though.
