Tend to associate genital chain mail with the Middle Ages? Designed to "enforce fidelity in women," most authenticated chastity belts actually date from the 17th and 18th centuries. Regardeless of how old it is, we can all agree that misplacing the key to your chastity belt is THE WORST. The next time you find yourself in this common conundrum, don't panic. Just ask your local fireman to cut it off. That's what this Italian lady did and everything worked out fine for her. 

The Huffington Post reports:

"A woman in Italy walked into a fire station last week because she had lost the key to her chastity belt and needed help removing it, according to local newspaper Il Messaggero. The 60-year-old initially told fire crews in the northern city of Padua that she needed help opening a padlock, The Telegraph reports. When firefighters asked the woman where she lived, thinking she'd locked herself out of her house, she lifted her sweater and showed them the iron device."
