A woman in Italy walked into her local fire department and asked to be cut loose from her chastity belt after losing the key, according to reports.
A 60-year-old woman from Padua told firefighters that she needed help opening a padlock. The firefighters thought it was for a door in her home but she reportedly lifted her sweater and showed an iron chastity belt, according to The Telegraph.
The firefighters broke open the lock and questioned if the woman was the victim of a domestic violence and was forced to wear the belt.
However, it turned out not to be the case.
The woman, whose name has not been released under Italian privacy law, said she was worried about the incidents of sexual violence she saw on the news and embarking on a sexual relationship, according to reports.
She told the fire department that she lost the key and after many searches it still has not turned up.
No one has commented from the fire department on the matter.
