Tokyo Woman Arrested for Making 3-D Printer Vagina Dioramas

My blog can occasionally be vagina-centric. But having just spent many days in the Louvre looking at all of the penile statuary …

I feel the need to represent for the velvet glove.

This hot off the press from RocketNews 24:

Police arrested female artist Megumi Igarashi, who goes by the name of Rokudenashiko, which translates to something like  “Good-for-nothing girl,” on July 14. She was taken into custody on the grounds of distributing ‘obscene’ digital files about how to make an accurate mold of her vagina using a 3-D printer. She has denied the charges, contesting that the models are not obscene. It all seems rather unfortunate given that Igarashi has spent a long time campaigning in order to break taboos regarding discussions of vaginas in Japan.”

I can’t help but adore Rokudenashiko who has begun creating 3-D Printer Vagina Dioramas, her most recent featuring miniature golfers attempting to make a hole in one.

Levity people. That’s what makes the world go round. And you’re going to love these man-on-the-street interviews in Tokyo regarding the lady garden.

    Wow…how bizarre. Of course she’s making molds of her labia, not here internal parts-the vagina. But…wow… Thanks for sharing this it’s fascinating to see women take on taboos around the world. I’m reminded of the British artist, Jamie McCartney and his Wall of Vaginas (again labia) http://www.greatwallofvagina.co.uk/great-wall-vagina-panels

    Haha…leave it to Walker to give us all an anatomy lesson.

    What an interesting thing to do. You can get Hello Kitty sex toys in Japan. I can’t see how this is any more “obscene”.
