    [7.15] Police Arrest Japanese Artist Who Invited Fans to 3-D Print Her Genitalia

    A Japanese artist who specializes in vaginally inspired art has been arrested in Tokyo on grounds of obscenity for allegedly emailing design files to her supporters so that they could print 3-D renderings of her genitalia. Or as The Guardian calls it, a “vagina selfie.”

    Megumi Igarashi, who works under the name Rokudenashiko, had started a crowd-funding project to create a kayak designed after her vagina. The design files were supposed to be a reward for investors who backed the project.

    Igarashi wrote on her campaign’s page that she seeks funding to make her art anatomically precise. “It is extremely difficult to make precise mold. Even when successful, silicone mold will gradually deteriorate, which makes mass production difficult.”

    The Tokyo Metropolitan Police arrested the 42-year-old artist for breaking obscenity laws Wired notes hark back to 1907 that prohibit the display of genitalia. But the artist argues that the data itself isn’t adult material. “I cannot understand why the police recognize the 3D data as obscene material,” she said, according to TechCrunch.

    Other projects Igarishi has made designed on her vagina include a comic-book, a remote controlled car, and a lampshade.

    A Change.org petition has been launched to protest Igarashi’s arrest.

    Uh so did she send it to minors or something? I mean two grown ass adults should be able to trade their genitalia ever how they want damn Besides she sent data. It is all numbers and requirements to print of said genitalia.

    Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    That's just weird. I kind of agree with the cops on that one. Who the hell wants to see a kayak in the shape of a lady's jacked up artistic vagina?

    If that's what you want to do with your life, so be it. It's getting her attention at least and that's half the battle of being an artist.

    Plus when you look at that kayak, I don't exactly think 'damn, thats a vagina right there'. Maybe goofy looking for one but vagina is not the first thing I'd jump to there.

    Haha, the idea is so funny. She is a bit wacko, but she is one reason why I stick around on the internet.

    I heard about the kayak but I didn't know about the other things she was apparently up to, nor did I know she got arrested or that taking vag pics in Japan was even illegal. I think she will find success though since shock art is always interesting especially ones that are able to be as highly publicized.

    How is that illegal in Japan? I remember when I was obsessed with Cindy Crawford back in the day and I read she posed nude for Japanese magazines. And not men's magazines, regular magazines like Cosmopolitan and Glamour

    Dude, there are some people who would agree with the police if they diced to arrest you because "Who the hell wants to use a Mario avatar?" Remember, man- different strokes for different folks... It's her vagina and she should be allowed to swap pictures or rendering data to anyone she pleases. The only thing anyone really owns is his or her body. Everything else can be taken very easily. What she wants to do with her property is her business.

    That right there... that mind boggling conundrum- that's the Japan factor. These are people who have no problems with prostitution or drawing kiddie porn, but they don't permit vaginas to be displayed in porn. Crazy stuff man.

    Vagina selfie..?? That's crazy idea but at first instance after looking at that 2m kayak,i never thought it was a vagina.It wasn't offensive at all.Japan has always been a wacky nation and still is,but she was arrested because japan doesn't allow the display probably..
