Man nails his testicles to ground in Red Square



LINK

A man was arrested after stripping naked and nailing his own testicles to the ground in broad daylight and in full view of tourists at one of the world’s most visited landmarks.

Self-styled performance artist Pyotr Pavlensky received treatment at a clinic before being taken to a police station following the incident, which he said was a protest against Russia’s ‘police state’.

He shocked visitors in Moscow’s Red Square by hammering a nail through his scrotum into cobblestones outside Lenin’s Mausoleum, on the day Russia marked its Police Day national holiday.

At least one person filmed Mr Pavlensky during the protest before police put a blanket on him and removed him from the floor.

In a statement posted on the grani.ru website prior to the demonstration, Mr Pavlensky had written: ‘A naked artist, looking at his balls nailed to the Kremlin pavement, is a metaphor for the apathy, political indifference, and fatalism of contemporary Russian society.’

The artist has put his body on the line for previous high-profile protests.

After two members of the Pussy Riot punk protest band were jailed for singing inside Moscow’s main cathedral in 2011 he sewed his lips together, and he also wrapped his naked body in barbed wire outside a government building in St Petersburg.

I know what he means.

In college I stapled my nuts to a tree in front of the Student Union in protest of high textbook prices.


People got it.

Had a buddy who was mad at work so decided to photocopy his jewels on the big copying machine and when he got up in the mounted position the little sliding thing that goes across caught his sack and ripped a hole. he was bleeding all over the copy machine

So's the society they live in. I mean, they were celebrating National Police Day for Christ's sake–like, "Aren't we lucky to have the KGB?? Whoopeeee!!"

I'm going to need an addendum to this story on how they removed said testicles from the cobblestone.
