Japanese Vagina Selfie Artist Arrested For Obscenity

The WeekA Japanese artist who scanned her vagina then distributed the data online to allow people to create 3D-printed models of her genitalia has been arrested. The artist, Megumi Igarashi, who goes by the name of Rokudenashiko online – which translates loosely as “good-for-nothing girl” – was taken into police custody for allegedly breaking Japanese obscenity laws, which restrict the distribution of imagery of male or female genitals. Igarashi says she wants to “demystify” female genitalia in Japan. She says that she believes female genitalia are “overly hidden” in Japanese society, “I did not know what a pussy should look like,” she said in a post online. The artist has also incorporated her genitals into other works such as a diorama described as a “vaginal battle scene” where soldiers run for cover into a trench, and another model along the same theme that depicts workers attempting to control a disaster at a nuclear power facility 

How can you expect a people to understand what a pussy really looks like when they’re constantly pixelated? Pussies are like shooting stars in Japan. You gotta be at the exact right place at the exact right time to ever actually see one. 99% of the time they’re either pixelated or covered in hair. So, I for one, think Megumi Igarashi is doing a public service. She’s like a sex ed text book. A human health class. Exposing the Japanese pussy and showing everyone exactly what they look like.

Although I gotta be honest, Megumi, making pussy diorama of some sort of vagina power plant is probably only going to confuse people. I mean don’t get me wrong, if this was a third grade school project and all the other kids walked in with some shitty mobile or a scene in a shoe box and you dropped the Pussy Power Plant on them:

You’re getting an A+. But if the goal here is to show the people of Japan what a pussy should look like, creating some sort of nuclear power plant meltdown scene around your vagina is probably only going to confuse the situation. There’s probably some poor 13 year old kid out there currently associating pussy with the Fukushima tragedy, terrified to even go near his first vagina. If you’re gonna be a Vagina Selfie Artist it comes with responsibility, and this artwork is just irresponsible.
