    Russian protester nails testicles to cobblestones in Red Square

    Russian protester nails testicles to cobblestones in Red Square
    November 10, 2013


    Pyotr Pavlensky’s Red Square protest.
    Image from Liveleak video

    A Russian man has been arrested and hospitalised after nailing his testicles to cobblestones in the icononic Red Square in Moscow.

    Pyotr Pavlensky, a performance artist, stripped naked before performing the gruesome act of self-mutilation near to Lenin’s mausoleum in protest to what he believes is Russia’s descent into a Putin-led police state.

    Now that's commitment to the cause for ya!

    However, I reckon it's not that bad, just going through the skin of the testicle sack is like piercing your ear...

    Quite. If he wanted me to believe him he should've nailed his bell end to his forehead.

    If you are not free to nail you nuts to the road, well, then you are just not free at all.

    its not the first time this crazy boris has mutilated himself.

    In July last year Pavlensky held a rally in support of prisoners participating Pussy Riot. He sewed his mouth and stood at the Kazan Cathedral with a placard "Speech Pussy Riot has been famous action replay of Jesus Christ (mf.21 :12-13)."


    im sure the police will, once they have ripped the nail out, give him a well deserved beating down in the cells of the lubyanka.

    He'll probably get extra time for damaging government property.

    I'm sure he just went through the sack and avoided a ball. Coward!

    Would be pretty tricky to get the nail through the testicle. Would have to hit the nail quite hard and fast to avoid the testicle popping sideways inside the ballbag when the pressure is applied.

    Practice makes perfect!

    Kudos if he really did skewer the actual testicle.

    He's certainly got some balls that bloke (or did have).

    As the young man doesn't appear to be in too much pain i'm a wee bit more than sceptical in that he may have used the 'No More Nails' product and erased some appropriate lettering on the packaging just to give himself added publicity. A naked man in Red Square? Well, that type of storyline doesn't really take too long to hit the headlines on TD does it now.

    To be honest i've always had some reservations about any goverment backed 'care in the community' program. Seems Moscow also has it's fair share.

    Maybe next time he could try sliding down the edge of a razor using his prick as a brake

    Begs a question though. If I wanted to nail my own testicles to road cobbles, what sort of nails should I be using? Would I be able to obtain some kind of flesh-sandstone combo type nails in a local Home Pro shop in Rayong, even?

    This might warrant a separate thread in the "Construction.." forum, maybe.


    Side note: I wonder if Boris missed his 'nads and swore when he hit his own thumb..?

    I would be looking at 4 inch stainless steel to minimise risk of infection.

    Definitely want to be using one of these bewts.



    A nail-gun has the speed and precision to go straight through the bollock into the cobble before the gonad has a chance to think about getting out of the road.
