USA Today- Here's a note for your next trip to Japan: Don't build a vagina-shaped kayak. It could land you in jail.
Tokyo artist Megumi Igarashi was charged with distributing obscene material for providing 3-D images of her vagina to supporters in a crowd-funded project.
"It might be obscene if I were depicting actual sexual intercourse or sexual activity, but I'm just projecting a part of my body just as it is, and I don't consider that obscene," Igarashi said at a news conference Thursday.
Igarashi said a kayak modeled after her vagina was intended to build awareness of Japan's bias against discussion of that particular part of female anatomy.
It may have worked too well.
Igarashi, 42, who works under the name Rokudenshi-ko (which translates roughly as "good for nothing girl"), was arrested July 12. She was released after six days, but could be re-arrested and formally charged later. If convicted, she faces up to two years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
In the immortal words of Larry David...
You know what this broad's biggest mistake was? Going around yapping that she had a kayak made in the mold of her vagina. She just couldn't let a sleeping pussy lie. Had to go around bragging that she was paddling around in her own punany. No one in the world would have called her out on having a vagina kayak if she didn't tell people she had a vagina kayak. There are just places you don't expect to see female genitalia, and floating along bodies of water is one of them. If you think your vagina happens to take a hydrodynamic shape then you keep it yourself, because if you can't enjoy it without telling the masses then you didn't want it that bad in the first place.
I don't know anything about the laws in Asia, but considering they throw little girls in picnic baskets and send them down the river, I would imagine they are pretty strict. They don't even want women to give birth to other women. I would say that's a pretty pretty preeeeeeeetty good sign that they don't want women passing out their model baby makers all around town. If I can't hand out my penis in America, then Megumi Igarashi definitely can't hand out her hymen in the Orient. Is this some feminism thing? Do people think I am being sexist? If you make a mold of your sexual reproductive organ then it better be used to simulate sex. That's just equality at work. Name one thing -outside of penetration- that a phallically shaped object is good for, go.....
Exactly, you ladies don't get to have all the fun with your private parts. Fair is fair.
