A woman has spoken out about her strange relationship with a plane known as Dicki.
Sarah Rodo, 23, is ‘objectum sexual,’ which means she is sexually attracted to inanimate items, and she claims to be over over heals in love with her partner, the plane.
Sarah, from Dortmund, Germany, has dated humans before, but says that ‘Dicki’ has made her feel whole.
Sarah said: “I’ve been attracted to objects since I was a teenager – I first noticed it when I was 14 years old.
“Before the plane, I was on the ICE 3, which is an express train.
“I’ve also had two relationships with men because I just wasn’t sure what my real sexuality was, but I soon realised that I can’t feel these romantic things for people – now I know that my sexuality is objectophilia and I stand by it.
“I noticed that I wasn’t attracted to people when I didn’t want to cuddle or become intimate with them unlike my objects where I crave cuddles and being intimate – it’s the best sex I’ve ever had!
“My plane is called ‘Dicki’ and he takes up almost my entire bed.
“I love everything about him, but particularly his face, wings and engine – they’re so sexy to me.”
Sarah sleeps with a collection of model aeroplanes based on the Boeing 737; she stays close to the plane by flying frequently and even has two tattoos dedicated to it on her arm.
Sarah, who aspires to marry the plane one day, claims it was love at first sight, from the moment she saw it. She added: “I felt love immediately and just want to be with him all the time – he makes me the happiest person.
“I also fly very often so that I can simply feel and hear him.
“When I’m with my 737, I’m over the moon I love him so incredibly much – I just feel safe with him and want to spend all my time with him.
“I try to fly as often as possible and go plane spotting at the airport. – I take a small model with me when I leave the house so I feel like I’m always with him.
“Some people don’t understand my love but my friends took my coming-out very well and encouraged me.
“I would love to marry him more than anything but it’s forbidden in Germany.”
