A Polish man who was caught masturbating in his car with women’s stockings on his head, now is suffering from severe vision loss, according to his lawyer.

Looks like your grandma might have been right after all.

Rafal Ciesielski was convicted of outraging public decency in a court in Lincolnshire.

The case was closed last month, but Spalding Today just reported on the perplexing revelations made in court.

The paper simply refers to Ciesielski’s crime as a “solo sex act.” However, Nerys McGarry, spokesperson for the Lincolnshire Police, confirmed in an email to The Huffington Post that the infraction was masturbating in public — and in the middle of the day, no less.

“He was substantially under the influence of alcohol,” Ciesielski’s lawyer, Rachel Stevens, said. “He wonders whether someone spiked his drinks – this actually happened in the middle of the day and the last thing he could remember the night before was being in a club.”

Edward Johnson, prosecuting, said the police officer who spotted Ciesielski at first thought he was urinating.

He looked back “and saw he was wearing a pair of ladies’ stockings pulled down over his head and face” and committing a sex act on himself.

Mr Johnson continued: “Another officer also saw what was going on.

“Both officers were shocked and disgusted by what they saw and found the behaviour outrageous and totally unacceptable.”

When arrested, Ciesielski removed the stockings from his head, sniffed them and placed them nearby.

Mr Johnson said: “His final comments after his admissions were ‘I am just sorry, it won’t happen again. I don’t know why this happened. I was under the influence of alcohol and maybe this happened because I was so excited after the disco. I am really ashamed’.”

Rachel Stevens, mitigating, said: “The defendant is completely unable to explain his bizarre behaviour.

Stevens also said her client’s vision has deteriorated significantly since Aug. 12, when he was arrested for doing the deed with himself.

She said it’s gotten so bad that he can no longer drive or operate the fork lift at his work.

This bizarre coincidence plays right into the urban myth that masturbation leads to blindness.

Writing for Psych Central, Dr. Michael Ashworth insists those rumors have been “debunked many times.”

“If you are someone who masturbates, finds it pleasurable and wants to continue, pay no attention to TV show jokes about it causing blindness, or rumors of other terrible things that it can bring on,” Ashworth writes.
