When an American tourist was dared by his friends to climb inside the giant stone vagina sculpture outside of the Schnarrenberg Institute for Microbiology and Virology in Tübingen, finding himself trapped inside wasn’t part of the plan… but that is exactly what happened.
With 15 of his friends unable to free the 22-year-old from the giant vagina, 22 firefighters were called to the scene to free the man from the embarrassing situation.
One of his friends posted two photos online commenting that “I was there!!! He just wanted to take a funny picture. The fire department was not really amused, and he was really embarrassed. But now happy that he is 1st on reddit!”
Once freed from the piece of art, an ambulance was on the scene but no medical attention was needed. The statue was also thankfully not damaged from the incident.
The city’s mayor Boris Palmer commented on the embarrassing situation, saying that even when “taking into account adolescent fantasy,” he did not understand how the student managed to get himself into such a sticky situation.
