Fool to the fire…

Posted: December 17, 2015

A sex shop customer in Germany recently almost found himself with more than just his passions ignited. The unnamed gentleman was frequenting a sex shop in Hamburg’s Reeperbahn and decided to avail himself of the video-viewing facilities on site.

According to the Daily Mail, he was alone in a locked cabin watching the adult film ‘Throbbin Hood’ when the fire broke out. Despite beginning to suffer from smoke inhalation from the encroaching flames, he was adamant that he was not leaving, and was heard shouting; “I have paid 7.50 Euros (£5.27) for this and I haven’t finished yet!”, forcing the firemen called to the scene to break their way into the cabin and pull him to safety, seemingly against his will and in what was described as ‘a state of high sexual arousal’.

Fire service spokesperson Martin Schneider said: “He only came out after our people were battering against the locked cabin door. Once it was open they grabbed him and dragged him to safety. He needed treatment at hospital for smoke inhalation.”

Two shop employees also suffered minimal injuries from the fire, but hospital treatment was declined.
