Have you heard about the pussy boat? {E} Art News

Megumi Igarashi, who works under the pseudonym Rokudenashiko, was arrested this week for emailing a 3D image of her vadge to about 30 or so recipients who responded to a “crowd-funding request for her artistic venture: a kayak inspired [by] her own genitalia she calls ‘pussy boat’.”

Igarashi is on a mission to “demystify” women’s genitalia in Japan, a country where thousands flock annually to their officially sanctioned penis festival – The Festival of the Steel Phallus. Her work is apart of an artist’ series called Decoman, “Decorated Vagina” series that showcases the Japanese “overly hidden” female va jay jay in a variety of mediums, including kayaks I suppose.

Igarashi is currently being held on suspicion of breaking Japanese obscenity laws in Tokyo. The artist denies the allegations and didn’t think sending this 3D image was obscene in the first place. What do you think? Is it obscene? You’re checking your email one day and BAM! A little vagtastic voyage in your Gmail account! Ha!

Get this! Unnamed police sources say that each one of those 30 or so recipients paid Igarashi in exchange for her dirty “data.” Igarashi collected roughly 1 million yen from her recipients, which is about $50,000 American dollars. Then she turns around and uses the funds to make a cunt kayak?! I would’ve spent it on paying off my school loan debt, travel or buy a car or some rad shit like that – not a damn kayak!
