Whore-igami

Briefly noted: in the short story “I Can See Right Through You” by Kelly Link in McSweeeney’s No. 48 (2014), on p. 81:

Meggie says, “She’s a nice kid. Makes Whore-igami in her spare time and sells it on eBay.”

“She makes what?” the demon lover says.

“Whore-igami. Origami porn tableaux. Custom-order stuff.”

“Of course,” the demon lover says. “Big money in that.”

(Other occurrences as a joke about paper-folding prostitutes, on various sites. As far as I can tell, there are as yet no commercial products.)

A pun on origami, or a portmanteau of whore and origami, or of course both.
