The popularity of the Fifty Shades Of Grey series means more and more UK couples are having kinkier sex, and it’s really not good news for the emergency services.
According to shocking new statistics, S&M sex has been the direct cause of hundreds of embarrassing 999 calls over the last five years, and the number is only going up.
As The Mirror reports, firefighters have freed 102 people who were handcuffed or tied to beds over that time, and they’ve also been called out to cut rings off men’s penises on 23 occasions.
More couples are dabbling in Fifty Shades-inspired sex than ever before, and it’s estimated to have cost the taxpayer £40,000 over the last five years in call-out fees.
London Fire Brigade’s Director of Operations Dave Brown: “Our advice is simple.
“If the ring doesn’t fit, don’t force it on. As well as being painful, you could end up wasting emergency service time if you have to call us out.”
He went on to say: “…the Fifty Shades of Grey effect is still leading to some call embarrassing call outs.
“I’d like to remind everyone that 999 is an emergency number and should only be used as such.”
Remember, don’t overdo it this Valentine’s Day kids – the emergency services are struggling as it is…
