It Takes All Kinds: “Objectum Sexual” Realized in a Woman Who Wants to Marry a Boeing Replica


    The term “objectum sexual” refers to the instance when a person is sexually drawn to inanimate objects. Sarah Rodo of Dortmund, Germany, has referred to the Boeing 737 as her “boyfriend”; she apparently wants to marry an exact replica of the plane one day. “My plane is called Dicki,” Sarah told The Sun. “I absolutely love all things about him, but I love his wings, face, and engine. They're just extremely sexy to me. A few people don't get my passion, but my friends embraced my coming out very well and supported me to keep going.”

    Sarah frequently flies on Boeing 737s as much as is feasible and has 50 replica models of the plane in her home. Sarah admitted to having had previous relationships with men that she didn't find satisfying. She also admitted feeling sexually attracted to trains.

    Sarah's tale is reminiscent of Japanese teacher Akihiko Kondo’s story. Kondo is referred to as a “fictosexual” after he married a hologram, Hatsune Miku, in 2018. AFP reported that Miku is in the form of “an animated 16-year-old with saucer eyes and lengthy aquamarine pigtails.” Despite his family’s disapproval, Kondo shelled out two million yen ($17,600) for an official ceremony in a Tokyo venue, where forty guests were present and Miku was presented in the form of a virtual doll. At home, Kondo interacted with Miku via a $2,800 cylindrical desk device. Recently, however, Kondo said that he has been unable to communicate with the “woman” he calls his “wife” after the company that supplied artificial intelligence and communication capabilities ended all services.

    “Fictosexual” is a term defined as a person who is “sexually attracted to fictional characters,” according to Fox.

    It is believed that the Hatsune Miku program was commonly utilized in Japan and Kondo's “wife” was not a unique creation. Gatebox, the company that developed Miku, even went so far as to issue Kondo an unofficial “marriage certificate,” which claimed that he and his virtual counterpart were married “beyond dimensions.” At the time, Gatebox actually issued more than 3,700 “marriage certificates” for such unions.
