There’s a sex scene in Guillermo del Toro’s new Oscar-nominated film. You know the one. The one where our protagonist, a mute custodian played by Sally Hawkins, has sex with the fish man (Doug Jones) she rescued from a secret government facility. If this is your ultimate fantasy, we have some great news for you. 

Many audience members left the movie theater confused, intrigued, and maybe a little bit excited about what fish man equipment actually looks like. Vulture describes the only hint we get in a subsequent scene, when Octavia Spencer’s character asks about the mechanics of it all. Hawkins puts her palms together, and then slowly fans out her fingers. The fish man’s dick is concealed, but comes out when needed.

Fortunately for movie lovers everywhere, we no longer have to rely on imagination: i09 writes that Tumblr user and dildo-maker XenoCat has created a fish dildo inspired by the Shape of Water

The sex toy glows under UV light and boasts different textures for the discerning customer.

It makes sense for this film to have inspired a dildo. Besides being unique in its depiction of human on humanoid-fish sex, it’s unique in its depiction of female masturbation. Indiewire reports how Guillermo del Toro was very purposeful in his inclusion of Sally Hawkins’ character rubbing one out during her morning routine. “We are used to either never depicting female sexuality, or depicting it in a glamorized, artificial way,” del Toro said.
