The amorous couple were making the most of the their time together in the Daraja Mbili area of Kisii, western Kenya.
But the man suddenly found himself unable to detach from his partner.
They could not control the pain that came with their embarrassing situation and shouted for help, attracting the neighbours, who can be seen carrying them down the road still wrapped in the bedsheets.
A crowd milled around the house and the two were carried outside as more people gathered to see the shamed lovers, still locked together.
It was reported in local media and widely believed that the woman’s husband, suspecting she was cheating, had secretly given her a concoction prepared by a witch doctor.
It was designed to have the effect of making the lovers inseparable and proving their guilt.
On the husband’s instructions, local media reported, the pair were taken to the witch doctor, who separated them.
The witch doctor made the man who was having sex with the married woman pay a fine before agreeing to free him.
The man was not immediately able to pay due to ‘harsh economic times’, it was reported.
Local media said that infidelity was a prominent social problem in Kenya.
