Fireys trained in ‘sex toy emergencies’
FIREFIGHTERS in Germany are being specially trained to rescue men from sex toy emergencies following a recent spike in kinky mishaps.
The new training involved emergency crews being drilled in how to cut off penis rings or extract items that have got stuck in hard to reach places.
The course was launched recently after a spike in calls from men whose raunchy antics had left them in serious trouble.
Incidents include a man with crochet needles stuck in his urethra and another who got his manhood stuck in a bottle.
In another eye-watering emergency call, crews had to attend a man with a whole apple stuck up his bottom.
And in another incident, a weightlifter in Worms in Rhineland-Palatinate state needed fire crews to help him get his member unwedged from the hole in the middle of a 2.26kg iron weight.
It took more than three hours to cut him free, and the weight had to be shattered with an industrial powered grinder, then cut to pieces with a vibrating saw.
The training seminar is called Maschinenunfaelle in German, which translates to "mechanical failures".
It teaches participants how to remove sex toys without hurting the trapped person.
More than 600 firefighters were given a lesson in how to remove penis rings in Dresden this week as part of the special training.
The 15-minute rescue technique involves inserting a spatula between the victim's penis and the ring before it is cut off with a grinder.
While the fire crews work, the stuck man is bandaged and covered in a heat shield blanket which can absorb heat up to 4000 degrees Celsius.
