A 23-year-old German woman sexually attracted to inanimate objects claims that she began a romantic relationship with a model airplane.

Sara Rodo belongs to a small group of people who identify themselves as "Objectum Sexual," which consists of feeling emotional and sentimental attraction towards an object.

The young woman, a resident of Dortmund, said she felt an overwhelming love for an airliner she now refers to as her boyfriend.

Rodo said she tried to have romantic relationships with other people, but she never felt as complete as when she was with her inanimate partner.

"I've been attracted to objects since I was a teenager. I first noticed it when I was 14," Rodo told the media outlets that have interviewed her, including The Mirror.

The young woman has 50 replicas of the Boeing 737, whom she calls “Dicki.” In addition, she has two pictures of this type of aircraft tattooed on her arm and dreams of marrying her partner. But, such a ceremony is considered illegal in her home country. 

"My plane is named “Dicki,” and he takes up most of my bed. I love everything about him, but especially his face, his wings and his engine. They are so sexy to me," she explained. 

"I had two relationships with men because I wasn't sure what my real sexuality was, but I soon realized that I can't feel these romantic things for people. Now I know my sexuality is objectophilia and I stay away from that," she added.

The young woman also claims to have sex with her inanimate boyfriend. "It's the best sex I've ever had!" she says.

When Rodo first saw her lover, she fell madly in love and now takes regular flights across Europe to be close to “Dicki.”

"When I'm with my 737, I'm over the moon. I love it incredibly. I feel safe with it and I want to spend all my time with it. I try to fly as often as possible and go looking for planes at the airport. I take a small model with me when I leave the house so I feel like I'm always with it," she added.

Although some people don't understand her peculiar love, Rodo says she has the support of her closest friends.
