Mystery solved! Somehow I missed this news.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-28323015
The arrest on obscenity allegations of a woman who makes art based on her vagina has sparked debate in Japan.

Tokyo-based artist Megumi Igarashi, 42, was arrested on Saturday for sending data that could be used to create 3D models of her vagina.

She had sent it to people who had donated money for a project to make a vagina-shaped kayak using a 3D printer.

The arrest made headlines in national media and triggered discussion on Japan's obscenity laws.

Ms Igarashi also goes by the moniker Rokudenashiko, which means "no-good girl" in Japanese.

A police spokesman told AFP news agency she had distributed data that could "create an obscene shape".
I honestly don't get it. It's not like fake vaginas and dildos aren't available here in adult goods shops for masturbatory purposes. Heck, there are festivals where they sell candy in the shape of human genitals.

From an article about them I read elsewhere, it seems that in Japan there is a quasi religious superstition about sharing: the less you do it, the more the value of your stuff increases. (Nothing economic implied.) :?

This is so fucked up I almost didn't post it. It kinda reminds me of the girls in the US who tried to kill a classmate for Slender Man.

16-year-old girl arrested for beheading classmate in Japan’s Nagasaki Prefecture
According to police, the victim, Aiwa Matsuo, 15, was visiting the suspect at her apartment when the incident occurred at around 8 p.m. Saturday. TBS quoted police as saying the suspect struck Matsuo on the back of the head more than 10 times with a blunt instrument and strangled her as well. Police said Matsuo’s head had been severed with a large knife and her left hand cut off.

At around 11 p.m., Matsuo’s parents contacted police after their daughter failed to return home. She had told them earlier that she was going to her friend’s place and texted them at about 7 p.m. to say she was about to leave for home.

Police found Matsuo’s body early Sunday morning, lying on the suspect’s bed.

The suspect, who cannot be named because she is a minor, was alone with her classmate at the time of the crime. Police said she does not live with her parents.

The suspect admitted to the crime, police said, but has so far given no motive for the attack.
Police said she does not live with her parents. Was she living alone? Something is very wrong here.
