A student has gotten himself in a sticky situation, becoming trapped inside a giant stone vagina.
Emergency services and 22 firemen were required to help pull the American out of the marble carving in Tübingen, Germany, the Huffington Post reported.
What happened next was a delicate operation to deliver the stricken student from his dilemma.
Erick Guzman, who witnessed the incident, said in a post on Imgur: "I was there!!! He just wanted to take a funny picture.
"The fire department was not really amused, and he was really embarrassed."
The unnamed student entered the sculpture on a dare, it was reported.
The statue is named "Pi-Chacan", which means "making love" in a version of the Peruvian Indian Dialect. The 13-year-old statue was designed by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara, and is worth $173,000.
