Police in Linköping, Sweden were given a delicate task on Saturday night as they were called in to help free a loving couple from their handcuffs.
The couple called the police after their sex game had left them in a tricky situation as their keys failed to open their handcuffs and they were left locked to each each other.
Police needed the help of bolt-cutters to prize the pair apart.
"They had hoped that their keys would fit, but we had to use a type of bolt-cutter," said Christian Wehlin for Östergötland police.
There was a further man in the apartment when the police arrived. He had been trying to help the couple out of their bind but had been unable to force the handcuffs open.
