This Dildo Can Be Filled With The Ashes Of Your Deceased Lover

Morbid masturbation, people.

Posted on

Dutch designer Mark Sturkenboom created a glass dildo that can hold your cremated loved one’s ashes.

The urn—which is part of an art exhibition—offers the possibility to conserve the ashes of the deceased while also manifesting an immortal desire, according to Sturkenboom.

The urn—which is part of an art exhibition—offers the possibility to conserve the ashes of the deceased while also manifesting an immortal desire, according to Sturkenboom.

The dild-urn holds exactly 21 grams of ashes.

Why 21? Early 20th century physician Dr. Duncan MacDougall came up with the idea that the human body lost around 21 grams of weight, which represented the soul, after a person died.

The dild-urn also comes with a kit that includes a ring holder, iPhone speakers, and a fragrance diffuser.

"By bringing different nostalgic moments together like the scent of his perfume, ‘their’ music and reviving the moment he gave her her first ring, it opens a window to go back to moments of love and intimacy," Sturkenboom says.

There's a spot to store your iPhone, too.

And you can put your playlist on repeat.

I wonder if Sturkenboom has considered the flesh-urn, as well.

If those who enjoy dildos can relive memories with their loved ones, why not those who use flesh lights?

Unfortunately, the dild-urn is not for sale.
