In an attempt to “spice things up” with her boyfriend, a woman’s head has fallen victim to the bars of a stairwell.

How exactly it happened, we can only speculate, but it seems like someone gave too enthusiastic a push at the wrong moment.

Her neighbour found her naked, and alone, in the stairwell. Her boyfriend apparently didn’t want to stick around to help her out. Surely he had some lube handy?

When the police arrived, the 46-year-old Russian from Lipetsk explained that she had been having consensual sex with her boyfriend when her head became stuck.

Emergency worker Alexei Dotsenko doesn’t recall similar incidents from his time as a rescuer.

There’s always the possibility that the real explanation for being naked and stuck in a stairwell is more embarrassing than having sex with someone in your stairwell.
