Sometimes, when relationships go bad, they can get downright dangerous.
A man in Ukraine awoke one morning to find that his girlfriend, after discovering he liked to sleep around, had fastened a metal "chastity nut" to his genitals.
The 40-something anonymous man awoke and immediately noticed a pain down there. A quick inspection revealed a metal nut had been shoved onto his penis, restricting circulation and causing it to swell.

The man was rushed to a hospital in the city of Zaporizhia, but doctors there were at a loss for what to do without proper tools. The hospital recruited a "Cobra" rescue crew, who quickly arrived with an angle grinder.

After anesthetizing the victim, the crew cut into the nut with the saw. Sparks began wildly flying, so the team also had to continuously pour water on the man's member.

Eduard Nekhoroshev, a member of the medical team, said the operation was ultimately a success and they were able to "save the man's penis."
He is now recovering in the hospital.
Nekhoroshev also mentioned this isn't exactly an isolated incident.
"We often face similar incidents and are quite trained in removing rings, handcuffs and other objects off people's bodies."

While the unnamed man's genitals are expected to return to full strength, he is reportedly considering a divorce. It's probably for the best.
