Dildo Designed to Hold Loved One’s Cremated Ashes

URN AS DILDO THE CENTERPIECE IN SOON TO MARKET GRIEVING “MEMORY BOX”

Loss is one of those things that can manifest in so many ways for the living.  When you lose a loved one the manner that different people mourn and cope can often be random and surprising.  Of course, when that turn for the random goes deep into the weird, the weird can be deep indeed.  In this case it’s a product designed to facilitate the weird for people who have lost that special someone in the shape form and function of a dildo built to hold cremated ashes of the deceased.

“21 GRAMS” MEMORY BOX A REFERENCE TO SUPPOSED WEITGHT OF THE HUMAN SOUL

The Dutch designer Mark Sturkenboom has created this sex toy that includes a mini-urn which will hold the ashes of a deceased loved one.  The functionally phallic urn is part of “21 Grams” which is a memory box conceptualized by Sturkenboom to aid people who need help grieving their loved ones and “helping them feel their presence.”  “21 Grams” refers to the supposed weight of the human soul which came out of a now discredited study conducted by Dr. Douglas MacDougal, which involved weighing patients before after death to detect any change in the body’s mass and weight.

MEMORY BOX INCLUDES FILLED-WITH-ASHES DILDO, DIFFUSER TO FILL THE ROOM WITH THE DEPARTED’S SCENT AND IPOD AMPLIFIER TO PLAY THEIR FAVORITE MUSIC

But there is, of course, more than just a urn-as-dildo deceased diddler.  Sturkenboom’s memory boxes are also packaged with a perfume diffuser designed to hold and release the scent of the dearly departed.  The box also includes an iPod amplifier so that music that reminds of the departed can be played as well.

The box also is able hold other keepsakes related to the dead loved one, and comes with a brass key that is a functional pendant, according to Yahoo.  Sturkenboom related that an elderly neighbor was the inspiration for him to create the memory box.

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

DESIGNER HOPES PEOPLE DON’T FOCUS ON DILDO, BUT INTENT TO AID GRIEVING

“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?’”

Sturkenboom hasn’t marketed the boxes officially yet. He told media that the price hasn’t been determined.  He sincerely hopes that people focus on the emotional intentions behind the concept and not the sex aspect.  “I would much appreciate if the term ‘sex toy’ or ‘dildo’ are not the headlines,” he told media by email. “It’s a conversational piece. A metaphor.”
