Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves says he is asexual
The human Ken doll has opened up about his sexuality.
Rodrigo Alves, 34, is known for his love of plastic surgery as the human ken doll, but he rarely opens up about his private life.
Now Rodrigo has claimed he is “too selfish” for sex.
He told The Sun: “I don’t really like to be touched, and I am too selfish really for sexual contact”.
Describing himself as “asexual”, he added: “I don’t like to touch other people too much either.”
But he admitted there is a lot of interest in dating him, with both men and women apparently coming on to him.
Straight men are most likely to fancy him, he claims, especially after a drink.
But his biggest fans seem to be straight men. He said: “The sort of men that like me are usually straight men.
“They come up to me after a few drinks and say, ‘You are so pretty and so perfect and better looking than any woman I know.’”
Rodrigo revealed earlier this year he wants to “grow old as a woman” and is plashing out thousands on surgery to be less masculine.
The reality star and cosmetic surgery enthusiast is looking to “feminise” his look as he seeks to live as a woman.
Rodrigo has undergone 59 cosmetic surgeries, soon to be 60, and hundreds of other aesthetic procedures to form his look.
He had over 3,000 hair follicles transplanted to his forehead and then platelet rich plasma injected into his forehead to stimulate growth.
Rodrigo is desperate for a more ‘womanly hairline’ as he changes his look, but wants to avoid ending up like Caitlyn Jenner.
Rodrigo told The Mirror: “I don’t want to age as an old man, I’d like to grow old as a woman, I’m 34-years-old and am happy with who I am, but when I reach my 50s I could live as a woman.
“I am happy looking how I am for the moment but I don’t want to age looking as a plastic modified man, I want the best of both worlds.
“When I get older I think it would be pleasant to see what it’s like, it’s nothing to do with sex or the sexuality part of the experience.
“My motive is not based on sexuality or wanting to have a sex change, it’s to do with life experience.
“I travel the world, I party and I would like to experience living as a woman someday too.
“Half of my life has been spent going through modifications to become a Human Ken Doll and I think my transition would be through hormones.
“I’m continuing to feminise my appearance slowly rather than doing everything at once like Caitlyn Jenner.”
The television personality hinted to Italian media that he aspires to have surgery on the one part of his body that remains untouched.
He reiterated this sentiment while talking to the Daily Mail.
“One day when I’m older I may have a sex change and become a Barbie,” he said.
However, the star admitted that his addiction to his appearance is taking a toll and requires constant attention.
“Being a live human Ken Doll has never been easy.
“It takes constant maintenance. Bits fall off and need repairing now and again,” he said.
The 34-year-old added that the most obvious impact surgeries are having are on his hair.
“O have had two hair implants and I’m due to have another one in a few weeks, simply because I was not born this way.”
Because of the effects, Alves is starting to see the physical affects his lifestyle is having, he has made a conscious decision to stop having some of the procedures he regularly relies on, such as liposuction.
“I’m saying goodbye to liposuction. I’m not saying that I won’t have another facelift when I want to or hen I need to, I’m just changing my lifestyle which means a good diet and for the first time in my life, facing the gym,” he said.
According to The Sun, Alves has splashed out on a long list of surgeries, including: £8,000 on Botox and fillers, £30,000 on nose jobs, £3,000 on liposuction to his jaw, £10,000 on pec implants, £22,000 on a fake six-pack, £7,000 on fillers to his arms, £5,000 hair transplant, £7,000 on laser lipo, £6,000 on leg lipo and £3,000 on calf shaping.
Despite the health risks from his numerous surgeries, he strongly denies having an addiction issue.
In fact, Alves, who inherited a fortune from his grandparents, thinks it’s impossible to be addicted.
“No one can get addicted to plastic surgery,” he insisted in a TV interview. “There’s no such thing.”
