Fashion photographer, accused sexual assault assailant, and “tampon tea” connoisseur Terry Richardson is going to be a dad. Over the weekend, he and girlfriend Alexandra “Skinny” Bolotow celebrated the upcoming birth of their twins by throwing a baby shower, and in true Richardson style he ditched the traditional for the explicitly offensive.

Richardson’s Instagram account reveals the couple went for a full-blown penis theme, forgoing the usual pastels and baby animals and replacing them with items like penis-patterned tablecloths.

But if you don’t quite find what you’re looking for, don’t be afraid to get creative and DIY.

There are also the gross-out games that really prepare new parents for what they should expect in those early months. For those who have strong stomachs, Guess the Poop—typically played with melted chocolates—is another favorite.

Go forth and host your wildly inappropriate baby shower: There’s no need to stick with traditions that don’t speak to you, and it never hurts to laugh a bit before embarking on the serious responsibilities of parenthood.

As for Richardson and Bolotow’s twins, they are due this spring. Let’s hope they’ll be prepared for the inevitable day when they stumble upon their father’s Instagram.
