back to article Japanese artist cuffed for disseminating 3D ladyparts files

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, …

Mushi mushi passes at times, some like wordplay, sure not our majority, also pronunciation is just about never mooshi-mooshi as you imply.

Re: Are we going to have to have...

I would actually like to know if the video is mistranslating what she's saying.

Anyway, I hope they drop this ridiculous case, because she's found an amusing and harmless way to mock prudery. But sadly, given the Japanese approach to law and order, I doubt it will happen.

Contradictions abound

This is the country that has Vagina Festivals (and Penis Festivals.) Floats with giant vagina/penis models, vagina/penis statuary and vendors selling lollipops that, you guessed it, are a vagina or a penis. Pictures of the festival appear in various newspapers every year, including of course pictures of little kids walking around sucking on vagina/penis lollipops.

We've got 3D printers and scanners at work

When they arrived, the first rule from the boss was...

No printing of our own body parts.

And you're telling me you didn't immediately skirt around that interdiction by printing each other's body parts?!?

Actually we print body parts all the time...

But purely for medical purposes.

Public referendum necessary

Nothing like a mass debate to relieve these sorts of issues.

This

has totally changed my relationship with my kayak. For better or worse, I'm not sure yet.

Next time I'm naked inside my wetsuit and rubber shoes, inserting myself into my boat, fixing myself with a rubber skirt to the cockpit rim, I'm really going to think about this.

Irony or something

In a Japanese town I visit fairly regularly for its hot springs is a temple the name of which is enticingly translated as the "Happy God Temple". The central shrine of the temple is a rock formation portraying Mother Nature's representation of lady parts. http://www.mediafire.com/view/0za2jypjj5zjn/Japan#gl6q3bq9dnet946

The link is NSFW but OK for worship

Is there no end?

As expected, home printing will allow all sorts of things. Guns, female parts (of any age and species), soon molecular printing of any inorganic substance-- why bother learning chemistry if your printer spits out your drug of choice?-- real body parts to add your existing body parts (takes a bit of time to vat grow the cells needed for "inkjet" printing is all)... For the ambitious take your BioCAD (tm) and design your own additions, just need to adjust the histocompatibility complex to match and voila! a new appendage, fur, horns, whatever and without the antirejection drugs!

The mind boggles, especially after being doubled in size and connected to the Internet.

This post is worth an article ...

but not begrudging the Reg, been enjoying it for some years.

Firstly, agree with OPs who enjoy this work. I find it quite amusing, it also has a nice tie with the nation's creation myth (see Amaterasu Omikami).

Also, OP mentioning phallic cults and festivals, they sometimes carry the giant organs to, for example, indy rock shows where trad. festival style dance-and-music groups appear, and there are also vulva-centred festivals, featuring similarly giant-scale reproductions.

Some will recall the Akihabara knife maniac several years ago. As a consequence, the 'heaven for pedestrians' (road closed to traffic in business hours on Sundays) was suspended for a few years.

What was never reported in press overseas was that his murderous rampage was mainly because he came to hate the many 'idol' events and fan groups. Not that he wasn't one of the fans, but it all just made him feel even more socially excluded and inadequate.

One Akihabara 'idol' who became a minor celebrity called herself Asuka Sawamoto. Her speciality was panty-flashing (quite modest), and she was arrested *three times* for that between spring and summer of the same year. She'd been banned from there (or was locked up, I've forgotten) at the time of the knife attack.

The real reason for the street being reopened to traffic and closed to pedestrians was more Sawamoto than the knife maniac.

She also got immense publicity on two-channel, when trolls here went nuts on discovering that she had been lying about her age (by numerous years, at least eight) and using a false name.

She later parleyed this into a hard-core career. Not interested, so do not know if it is still going. Before that, she had a band, saw them once, lunchtime show, not great, but fun and funny, band was pretty good, also modest, tape-on-nipples at most (though I presume the private photo sessions on offer went further).

Another band I knew of at the time had a keen panty-flasher as a main performer, she was ordered to stop by the band leader after the serial Sawamoto arrests.

At the same time, more than a few male music performers like to take everything off, a few places don't allow it (you can tell, because said performers keep their undies on).

Occasionally, drunken male students or other early-twenties will do things like pulling their pants down, set fire to their pubes while yelling 'Japanese fire', zero police interest.

Could continue, stopping there.

Err

Parlay, not parley (me, checked and missed, withdrawing and reposting is too much trouble).

Also, OPs mentioning the female counterpart of the phallic reps, posts were not there when making mine, but A for observation to you.
