Fifty shades of grey rings alarm bells for fire and rescue service

Personally, the premiere of the film Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend leaves me cold. It is not a film which I intend to go and see. But then I am not a member of the target demographic. For others though the book and the film has had unintended consequences.

As the Independent reports, London’s fire chiefs are braced for an increase in calls after its release, saying the light bondage film could lead to more people trapped in handcuffs:

Last year firefighters responded to 472 calls involving people stuck in compromising situations, a year on year rise – they claim – since the release of EL James’ books.

Over the last three years the total cost have spiralled to almost £400,000, with firemen called out to 293 incidents of stuck rings, including seven cases of men who had rings stuck onto their penises.

It does not bear thinking about. My sympathy though is with the firefighters.
