Love comes in various shapes, sizes and species. And if the strange love story of a 25-year-old Japanese man and his pet cockroach is anything to go by, it can often serve more than one purpose.

No, that wasn't a typo. Yuta Shinohara of Japan allegedly 'dated' his pet cockroach Lisa, who was from Africa, for a year.

However, he admitted to having had sexual fantasies about Lisa. Though his relationship with the roach had been platonic, he said that he had dreamed of what it would be like if she were to magically grow bigger or if he were smaller, local news outlet Sora News 24 reported.
