Firefighters in Padua, Italy were left a little hot under the collar after a woman asked them to help get her out of a chastity belt.
The middle-aged woman turned up at a fire station in Padua, Italy, and began asking crew if they could help her with a lock she could not open.
A number of firefighters began asking her questions about where she lived – thinking she had locked herself out of her front door.
But the crew were left stunned when the woman told them she was referring to a chastity belt she was wearing and pulled up her jumper to show them.
Speaking directly to the firefighters, the woman, who cannot be named under Italian privacy laws, said:
“I’ve lost the keys to a lock and I can no longer open it.”
Despite the peculiar nature of the request, the crew managed to open the chastity belt by breaking the lock.
Local newspaper Il Mattino di Padova told how concerned members of the crew then began investigating whether or not the woman had been forced to wear the belt by a partner.
However, it was revealed she had chosen to wear the belt herself in an effort to stop her from having sexual relationships.
She was forced to run to the fire station after losing the key in her home.
