There is a giant, marble vagina outside of the microbiology building at the University of Tübingen in Germany. Recently, an American student who was studying abroad there decided he needed a selfie with the statue before he went home–besides, his friends dared him to do it. This, as you maybe guessed, ended with our poor friend getting stuck in the giant, marble vagina, waiting for the Tübingen Fire Department to come rescue him.
I’m all for taking absurd pictures with statues. However, I can guarantee you that there is no world where placing yourself in a large, sculped vagina is a good idea. You don’t know where it’s been. Plus, it’s outside of the microbiology building. They probably work with gonorrhea there, and nobody wants that, especially if it’s giant, fake vagina bacteria.
The sculpture, commissioned from a Peruvian artist for $173,000 and titled “Making Love” in English, is doing just fine after our fellow countryman was liberated from its labia. German officials were reportedly not amused with the ordeal, but having majored in both German and microbiology, I can assure you that neither of those groups of people are very good with humor.
The moral of the story is don’t try to fit your entire body inside any kind of vagina–including giant, marble ones.
