Hail, the dildo with a loved-one's ashes

27 April 2015

sex with glass Most of us have thought about a fun memorial that we could choose when he shrug off this mortal coil of ours. Usually, it translates into something funny or sarcastic written on a tombstone.

Well how about having your ashes put in a dildo, so that every time your partner wants to get freaky with themselves, there's a chance they'll cry uncontrollably? Or maybe you'd like you ashes in a sex toy, so that you're always there as a reminder, to make your widow feel guilty when they feel ready to move on?

That could happen thanks to designer Mark Sturkenboom who has created a memory box that includes not only a dildo, but a necklace and an amplifier for playing music that will remind you of the person who has died. Oh, you also get a golden urn and a scent diffuser, too.

Talking about all this, Sturkenboom said: "After a passing, the missing of intimacy with that person is only one aspect of the pain and grief. This forms the base for 21 Grams. The urn offers the possibility to conserve 21 grams of ashes of the deceased and displays an immortal desire."

"I sometimes help an elderly lady with her groceries and she has an urn standing near the window with the remains of her husband. She always speaks with so much love about him but the jar he was in didn't reflect that at all."

"In that same period I read an article about widows, taboos and sex and intimacy and then I thought to myself 'can I combine these themes and make an object that is about love and missing and intimacy?'"

And so, he came up with 21 Grams, which is 'the weight of the human soul'. In Sturkenboom's words: "21 Grams is not only a way to tempt a person to revive an intimate night with her love again but also displays an accusation against the unavoidable passing of life."
