A man in Moscow had the shock of his life when he awoke from an amorous encounter to discover that his testicles had been surgically removed.
The 30-year-old man was sitting in a bar when a woman approached him and began chatting to him, he told LifeNews news website this week. "We drank beer together, and then she suggested we go to a sauna. We went to the sauna, and after that I don't remember anything," he was shown saying from his hospital bed in a video posted by LifeNews.
He woke up early the next morning and at first, the only items he noticed were missing were his cell phone, tablet computer and some money. He felt a pain in his groin, but it was only when he undressed at home that he noticed the incision.
"It was a shock," said the unidentified victim, who is married.
"I saw an incision, the stitches," he said.
Even then, the man could not imagine what else had been taken from him during the hazy encounter with the mystery blonde, and it was not until he went to hospital after the pain in his groin became unbearable and swelling appeared that he was told the terrible truth.
The LifeNews video showed a doctor saying that the operation had been carried out by a professional — "by a veterinary doctor at the very least."
Despite the precision of the surgery, the victim ended up in intensive care two days after the chance encounter.
The victim's wife was shown in LifeNews footage crying and saying her husband had told her he was going into hospital for a planned operation, but didn't tell her which hospital.
"Interestingly, the wife of the victim is still convinced that her husband was hospitalized as the result of an operation on his sex organs necessitated by a serious illness," LifeNews observed.
