A woman who is in a sexual relationship with an aeroplane has revealed that she travelled abroad 30 times in the last year just to spend quality time with her lover.

After an unfulfilling attempt to date humans, Sarah Rodo found love on her first flight with a Boeing 737.

Since then, the 23-year-old has also "met" 60 figurines and three larger models who she considers part of a "collective being" that she is dating, and so she often refers to her lovers as one.

Keeping up a relationship with an object requires real commitment.

The avid jet-setter from Dortmund, Germany, is so loved up that she has booked 30 mini-breaks in the last 12 months just to be close to her original beau, the Boeing 737.

Despite their many trips together, Sarah, who identifies as objectum sexual [having a sexual or romantic attraction to an inanimate object], is heartbroken that she’s never been fully alone with her partner.

”I’m proud to be objectum sexual – it's a wonderful sexuality,” Sarah told

”The only sad thing is that I can't be alone with a real plane.

”I flew a lot in the last year to be with the Boeing as often as I possibly could, I took about 30 flights and always combined it with a city trip or vacation.

”I also love to travel and discover new things [in the cities].

”With my love, I’ve travelled to Stockholm, Malmo, Copenhagen, Budapest, Vienna, and Paris.

”I also often visited Katowice in Poland as a day tour.”

Although Sarah struggles to have alone time with her beloved aircraft, she has an impressive collection of models that she also shares a bed with.

She is so devoted to her planes that she’s forked out over £3,550 on 60 figurines and three large models of her significant other.

She refers to her partner(s) as one, calling it "Dicki” and says its wings are the sexiest thing about it.

Sarah added: “I currently own three large models.

“They are made of fibreglass and cost €4,000 (£3,550).

”I also have many small models, over 60 in total, and they are custom-made.

”Many are from airlines or from travel agencies, with the larger models measuring between 1.25m and 1.6m long.

”I also have five aeroplane tattoos.

”The newest is a 737-800 on the right forearm.”

Sarah has also recently met a new plane, Charlie, who she is enjoying getting to know.

The 23-year-old still hopes to wed the 737 series.

She has previously shared how she cannot legally marry her lover despite their strong bond but has now hinted that there may be wedding bells in the near future.

She added: “I also have a new bigger model that looks like Dicki, but he has more detailed wings... his name is Charlie.

“Currently there are small plans to get married to the 737 series. However, I will not move abroad.

”In the meantime, I have my models and will continue going on trips to hang out with planes.”
