A Netherlands-based designer has created a dildo that allows you to store your deceased partner’s ashes inside it.

“21 Grams,” which is made of glass and features a gold-plated brass urn inside, also comes with a locked storage box to make sure that no one else can access the toy-slash-memorial.

“In a time where we are able to manipulate life, adjust the way that we look, where the possibilities are endless if it comes to body enhancements, there is one thing we still cannot answer, the unavoidable passing of life. Or can we?” wrote designer Mark Sturkenboom on his website. “21 Grams is a memory-box that allows a widow to go back to the intimate memories of a lost beloved one.”

“After a passing, the missing of intimacy with that person is only one aspect of the pain and grieve. This forms the base for 21 Grams,” he explained. “The urn offers the possibility to conserve 21 grams of ashes of the deceased and displays an immortal desire. By bringing different nostalgic moments together like the scent of his perfume, ‘their’ music, reviving the moment he gave her her first ring opens a window to go back to moments of love and intimacy. She is able to have an intimate night with her sweetheart again.”

Sturkenboom adds that “The cabinet functions also as an acoustic amplifier,” claiming “In the back of the cabinet there is room for an iPhone, the music plays through the ‘forget me not’ flowers on the inside of the cabinet.”

“The key to this cabinet is also a collier. So that she is the only one who can access the cabinet,” the designer concluded. “21 Grams is not only a way to tempt a person to revive an intimate night but displays an accusation against the unavoidable passing of life.”

In an interview with Metro, Sturkenboom claimed that he got the idea for the dildo after helping an elderly lady with her groceries.

“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. “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?'”

The product is not yet available publicly.
