The Shape of Water Star Not Exactly Thrilled There Are Sex Toys in His Likeness


Guillermo Del Toro’s genre masterpiece The Shape of Water pretty much owned the Oscars last night, winning Best Picture, among other high profile statues.

The love story, of a sort, between a human woman and an amphibian humanoid creature may be one of the strangest Oscar winners in recent memory. Thanks to the success of film, however, the fish character, as portrayed by veteran actor Doug Jones, has become something of a sex symbol.

So, you know what that means. Somebody made a dildo based on the character’s aquatic johnson.

Manufactured by a company called XenoCat Artifacts, the mammoth marine member quickly sold out, much to the chagrin of the actor whose watery penis acted as the impetus for the product.

“With a light chuckle, I can tell you it’s not exactly what I’d hoped for,” Jones said. “After pouring my heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears into this romantic, beautiful, magical role, the last thing I want to be remembered for is a silicone appendage that comes in two sizes.”

Director Del Toro has also gone on record decrying the fishy phallus, saying he does not “think it’s an accurate representation” and joking that he’s “sure Dunkirk doesn’t have that problem.”

To his point, a quick Google search has shown that, nope, there are not any Dunkirk-themed sex toys.
