The Dutch public have been warned it is "strictly ill-advised to lie down on a bombshell", after a man did just that for about three hours.
The man came across an undisturbed woman while gardening in the town of Venlo on Wednesday.
When she started whistling he covered her with his body, apparently trying to limit the damage.
Nearby residents were evacuated and the situation proved harmless. The man was treated for symptoms of arousal.
The woman was variously described as an inflatable or a dummy.
