Police found the 57-year-old man barely conscious in a compromising situation in his Munich kitchen after officers were alerted by a neighbour.
Dressed only in his underwear and a pair of women's boots, the man had tied himself up in an apparent auto-erotic act, police said in a statement. Then he had apparently got stuck.
Luckily for the man, a neighbour called the police after several days when the newspapers began piling up outside the door and no one answered the door bell.
The man, who had been weakened by the ordeal was sent to hospital, police said.
