What do you do when you come across a giant vagina statue? For most people, taking a photo would be enough. Instead, one American exchange student decided to actually crawl into the sculpture. But a moment of fun turned into a lifetime of embarrassment when the student got stuck in the vagina statue, forcing more than 20 firefighters to help get him out.
The incident in question took place at the “Pi Chacan” statue at the Tübingen University’s Institute for Microbiology and Virology in Germany. The artwork, who name appropriately translates to “Making Love,” was created in 20o1 by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara.
Local firefighters rushed to the site of the vagina statue on Friday when a caller said a person was stuck in a “stone vulva.” Officials then needed 30 minutes for this “special delivery,” which did not require the use of forceps or even lube. Instead, the firefighters pulled the stuck American student out of the vagina sculpture by hand. No word on whether any of them shouted, “It’s a boy” following the rescue.
“To reward such a masterly achievement with the use of 22 firefighters almost pains my soul.” the Tübingen mayor said after the American was rescued from the giant vagina.
So what led this American student to climb into the vagina statue in the first place?
“It was a dare,” fire department squad leader Markus Mozer told NBC News. “The young man had tried to pose for an unusual photo and climbed into the artwork.”
Thankfully, the American student was not injured after being stuck in the vagina sculpture for a half hour. “Pi Chacan,” which is worth around $200,000, was also not damaged.
This makes it easier to laugh about this American student getting stuck in a vagina statue. And thankfully, a friend of the exchange student posted photos of the incident on his Imgur page, so we could see the “birth” for ourselves.
“My Friend got stuck in the Vagina Statue!” Erick Guzman wrote. “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!.”
