Putin 3D-Printed Butt Plug? Keep That Asshole Away from Mine!

Whilst recently railing against Vladimir Putin’s military aggression against Ukraine, some anonymous Russophile messaged me a photo of a 3D-printed Putin butt plug, with the accompanying advice to “shove it up my ass.”

“No thanks,” I replied, “I don’t want that asshole anywhere near mine!”

I must admit, I got a good laugh out of the pics, which have gone viral on Reddit. And so it was that Moral Low Ground decided to track down the artist behind the piece. We found Fernando Sosa, aka Political Sculptor, the Florida-based 3D printing and rapid prototyping genius who brought us the as-seen-on-TV Chris Christie ‘Bridgegate’ 3D-printed action figure, working on his latest creation. There’s also one of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as a human-turtle hybrid “inaction figure.” That ‘genius’ comment wasn’t sarcasm, folks. Realizing these 3D figures is a painstaking labor of love and technical expertise– each sculpture takes between 40-60 hours to create.

“Let’s say it’s an obsessive hobby,” Sosa told Moral Low Ground.

Sosa has received considerable attention for his 3D artwork, which he creates using Autodesk Maya. In fact, after he came out with a Game of Thrones-based Iron Throne iPhone dock last year, HBO took notice, and not in a good way. The cable giant slapped Sosa with a cease-and-desist letter, killing the creation like so many Starks at a certain crimson nuptial.

But that’s all in the past now, and Sosa says he’s “super-psyched” about his latest creation and its “potential to ridicule Mr. Putin.”

“This piece was originally made in response to Russia’s anti-gay law,” he explained. “But since Putin is such an asshole, he seems to find himself on top of the media headlines again by invading Ukraine and putting the world at the verge of World War III.”

OK, that might be a little hyperbolic, but this sphincter-stuffing sculpture is still the stuff of viral legend and we can’t wait to see what Sosa dreams up next.

“I have a Rob Ford one printing right now… it’s literally in the printer,” he said. The infamous Toronto mayor comes holding a rock of crack. You heard it here first, kids.

The Putin butt plug is available for $23.27 on Shapeways.com. Sosa has a warning for potential buyers:

“One of the main questions I get asked is, is this safe? No, it’s not, as the description says, it’s for decorative purposes only. Sadly, the color printing technology that allows this to be printed isn’t very safe for sex toy purposes,” he says, adding that he’s working on getting funding for body-safe silicone.

Until then, keep that asshole away from yours. But for a great gag gift or a clever conversation piece that perfectly captures the political zeitgeist, Sosa’s Putin plug kicks ass.
