If you like weird stories you’re gonna love this one…because it’s REALLY FREAKING WEIRD!

I don’t know how to introduce a story like this, so I’m just going to put it out there. If you’re a kid, scram! Or you may end up with nightmares:

FOX 8 – A Florida man was arrested after he allegedly performed a botched castration at his home, according to the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office.

Gary Van Ryswyk, 74, of Sebring, is charged with practicing medicine without a license resulting in bodily injury.

Deputies came to Van Ryswyk’s home after a 911 hang-up call just before midnight Sunday.

In the home, deputies found a man on the bed with a towel over his groin bleeding heavily.

The room was set up like a surgical center with medical equipment and painkillers. There was also a camera set up to record the procedure.

Van Ryswyk told deputies he met the victim on a website on the dark web for people with a castration fetish.

He told the victim that he had experience on animals and had even removed one of his own testicles in 2012.

The victim was taken to the hospital and was later flown to a regional medical center.

Van Ryswyk’s bond was set at $250,000.

I’m old enough to know there’s a lot of weird stuff out there, but a castration fetish? Are you kidding me? I can’t even believe that’s a thing. That’s like the worst idea EVER.

Ok so if you need to scrub the weirdness out of your brain, this should help:

And for good measure…
