It took nearly two dozen rescue workers to free an American exchange student who got trapped in a giant sculpture of a vagina.

NBC News reported that the unidentified man got his legs lodged inside the six-foot replica after losing a dare.

The sculpture, installed 13 years ago in Tuebingen, Germany, is reportedly worth $200,000. The college student was freed after about 30 minutes and suffered little more than a bruised ego.
