Firefighters had to extract a man’s manhood from a toaster.
The London Fire Brigade were called into action when the unfortunate guy got his penis jammed in the kitchen appliance, and the incident is just one of 1,300 of embarrassing moments where people have been trapped or stuck since 2010.
The fire service has freed 79 people from handcuffs in the time frame after sex games went wrong in what they have dubbed the “Fifty Shades of Grey effect” after the release of the best-selling erotic novel.
But fire chiefs are asking people to start using a bit more “common sense” to avoid wasting their time.
Officer Dave Brown said: “Some of the incidents our firefighters are called out could be prevented with a little common sense.
“I don’t know whether it’s the Fifty Shades effect, but the number of incidents involving items like handcuffs seems to have gone up.
“I’m sure most people will be Fifty Shades of red by the time our crews arrive to free them.
“I’d like to remind everyone 999 is an emergency number and should only be used as such.”
