LONDON (UPI) — The London Fire Brigade is asking the public to use some “common sense” after firefighters assisted a man whose penis was stuck in a toaster.

The Fire Brigade said the 1,300 emergency calls involving people stuck or trapped since 2010 included a man with his penis stuck in a toaster, an adult stuck in a child’s toy car and 79 people who were unable to free themselves from handcuffs donned for amorous purposes, The Mirror reported Monday.

“Some of the incidents our firefighters are called out could be prevented with a little common sense,” Third Officer Dave Brown said. “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.”

The calls also included nine men with rings stuck on their privates, four people with their hands stuck in blenders and five people with their hands stuck in paper shredders.
