Not that I would’ve ever done this myself, but then again I can’t say the idea would’ve ever occurred to me in the first place. A Japanese artist by the name of Rokudenashiko was recently arrested after she not only 3-D printed her vagina, but then made it into a boat…because art?
“‘The Guardian reports that the artist, whose real name is Megumi Igarashi, could face up to two years in jail or a fine of about $24,500 if convicted. Rokudenashiko has denied the allegations and questioned why the scans are being called obscene. She explains her vagina-themed art this way: ‘I wanted to make pussy more casual and pop.’”
Apparently making 3-D scans of your vag breaks Japan’s obscenity laws, although if she’d thrown a few tentacles in there with it I’m sure it would’ve been fine. But don’t worry, if you’re sitting there thinking “What in ever-loving-fuck would I do with a vagina boat?”, you’re in luck. Rokudenashiko also made pussy cars, phone cases, you name it she whipped her vagina out and made it.
” ‘I wanted to make pussy more casual and pop. That’s how I came to make a pussy lampshade, a remote-controlled pussy car, a pussy accessary, a pussy smartphone case, and so on. … However, mold by hand has the limitation. … [It's] not suitable for making large art pieces such as a pussy door, a pussy car, or a pussy boat. I was wondering how I can make it possible, and then I finally found that 3D scanner can make it happen easily’!”
Uh huh…not that I was looking for reasons to not go to modern art exhibits, but now I have at least five.
