A Russian blogger decided to coat his genitals in plaster, then realized he was overheating and tried to break off the cast with power tools.
The blogger, known as ‘Boroda Dead’ heated the ingredients to 158 degrees Fahrenheit before applying them to his groin, Central European News (CEN) reported.
“I immured my manhood, but I did not consider the fact the alabaster is getting warmer when it is getting solid,” the blogger said in a video.
Soon, he was ready to end his experiment, but the plaster was too hard to remove and as warm as a stove, he said.
Overheating the testicles can impair sperm production and function, though studies are limited and inclusive, according to the Mayo Clinic.
The man tried to break off the plaster with a hammer and chisel, attempted to cut it with a saw and even tried a power drill, CEN reported.
He eventually managed to remove himself, and the video of his ordeal went viral.
“I didn't film the video for rating purposes. It just happened that way,” he said. “My [groin was] so hot, I thought they would turn into charcoal."
