Hackers Hold Man’s Penis For Ransom After Locking his Digital Chastity Belt

Ya’ll need Jesus! Vice just published a phone call interview Motherboard had with some bloke who had his dick locked in a cage by a hacker. How in the hell did the man’s cock get locked up? He was using an internet-connected digital chastity belt without any security. Let the panic ensue boys.

Unlike this Wi-Fi Butt Plug that can be controlled by strangers on Twitter willingly, this situation was far more nefarious. Apparently, Sam Summers was minding his own business when all of a sudden he received a notification on his phone saying that his internet-connected chastity cock cage was now under the control of a hacker. Demanding around $1,000 in Bitcoin to give control back, his initial thoughts were “It was my partner doing that.” But to his shock and horror, it was not.

“Oh, shit, it’s real,” Summers said. “I started looking at the thing. There’s no manual override at all. It’s a chastity belt; I guess it kind of shouldn’t But when it’s a digital thing like that, it should have a key or something. But it obviously didn’t.”

Even after paying the Bitcoin ransom, the hackers asked for even more leading to a brainstorming session for escaping his chastity cage. With nothing but a hammer at the house, Summers and his partner purchased a pair of bolt cutters to release him. Unfortunately, “it fucking hurt,” Summers said.

We’ve actually touched on sex toy security before when we covered the major men’s chastity belt cock-up last year which saw British cybersecurity firm Pen Test Partners warn users of a severe security flaw in their hi-tech chastity belt. Much like our man Summers, without a manual override, “an angle grinder or other suitable heavy tool would be required to cut the wearer free,” explained Pen Test Partners.

As a result of the injury, Summers could not have sex with his partner for over a month, leading to even further reservations about using internet-connected sex toys. His advice, “If you’re into it, that’s fine, because you’re into what you’re into,” he told Vice. “But use a lock, a physical lock in case. These digital things, you cannot trust them.”
