A Japanese artist has been arrested for disseminating "3D printable design files" of her own genitalia, 3DPrint.com reports.

Megumi Igarashi, 42, was cuffed by Tokyo Metropolitan Police for allegedly supplying virtual ladyparts via email to a "30-year-old man in Kagawa Prefecture" and "many others" back in March.

Igarashi, under the nom de plume "Rokudenashi-ko", has been creating dioramas and files celebrating her "まんこ(manko)" in order to fund the construction of a vagina boat. Her works include a miniature kayak...

She has also knocked up a full-fat vagina kayak...

...But it's the sale of digital vagina analogues which have landed her in hot water. Following her arrest, she told cops: "I cannot understand why the police recognize the 3D data as obscene material."

Igarashi's ultimate aim is to make the vagina more "casual" in a country where it's considered bad form to even mention ladies' inner sanctums. ®
