The 50 shades effect? Fire Brigade warns people to be cautious


LONDON – It’s possible that part of the reason for this piece could be as a result of the ’50 shades of grey effect’ however LFB (London Fire Brigade) are warning frisky couples to take caution in the bedroom in order to save themselves unnecessary embarrassment.

Horny couples getting stuck in objects such as handcuffs has risen dramatically over the past three years according to the LFB and they are suggesting that those who decide to engage in such activities in the bedroom should keep the “keys close to hand” in order to avoid having to place a 999 call.

They have been called to 79 incidents in the past three years of people misplacing their keys and therefore being unable to release themselves from the restraints when all the fun is over.

Firefighter Dave Brown said: ‘I don’t know whether it’s the Fifty Shades of Grey effect, but the number of incidents involving items like handcuffs seems to have gone up.

‘I’m sure most people will be Fifty Shades of red when our crews arrive.’

The LFB tweeted their unusual incidents the other day in an article with the hash tag, #50shadesofred

As if that was not enough the LFB also has to contend with people deciding to stick their private parts into what are the most unusual of objects only to find that they get stuck.

This includes men who had their penis caught in toasters and vacuums among other objects.

Worried parents were also the source of a number of calls regarding children who had got their heads caught in training potties or toilet seats.

Although some of the incidents may seem amusing, officer Brown stressed the importance of using resources correctly after the fire service revealed the bill for the strange calls came up to £377,000.

He added: ‘I’d like to remind everyone that 999 is an emergency number and should only be used as such.

‘When firefighters are out attending to some of these avoidable incidents, someone else could be in real need of emergency assistance.’

What do you guys think about this? Would you always keep the keys nearby? Let us know down in the comment section below.
