Vagina Artist Rokudenashiko Arrested In Japan For Distributing 3D Scans Of Genitals (PICTURES)

An artist has been arrested on suspicion of breaking Japanese obscenity laws.

Megumi Igarashi was detained after distributing data enabling recipients the capability of making a 3D print of her vagina.

This is Megumi Igarashi, aka Rokudenashiko. She makes vagina-themed art based on molds of her own genitals

Igarashi, who works under the pseudonym Rokudenashiko, had earlier crowd-funded a project to make a two-meter long kayak shaped like a vagina.

That boat successfully set sail, but as Rokudenashiko points out following her arrest, she did not send the scanned data in return for money and does not recognise it as obscene.

The 42-year-old has made a name for herself with a series of dioramas based on molds of her vagina.

“I did not know what a pussy should look like at the same time I thought mine is just abnormal.”

Rokudenashiko’s ‘deko-man’ art (‘deko’ short for decoration and ‘man’ for the Japanese slang word ‘manko’, which translates as ‘pussy’) is as she says, part of her mission to demystify the female form.

She adds: “Pussy has been thought to be obscene because it’s overly hidden although it is just a part of women’s body.”
