Woman asks firefighters to unlock her chastity belt

- A woman in Italy showed up at her local fire station because she lost the key to a lock.

According to a local newspaper, Padua firefighters asked her for her address, assuming she was locked out of her home, but the 60-year-old lifted her sweater to reveal she was wearing an iron chastity belt.

The fire crews were stunned.

After breaking the lock, firefighters asked the woman if she was the victim of sexual assault, but she explained that it was her choice.

Her motive is unclear.

Chastity belts were said to be commonly used in the Middle Ages to prevent a woman's sexuality.
