The Australian man who became stuck in a washing machine while naked has put his own spin on the tale, saying his rescue felt similar to being born.

Emergency services were called to the 20-year-old's Mooroopna home on Saturday afternoon after he became wedged in his top-loader during a game of hide-and-seek with his girlfriend.

The man, "Laurence", told Fairfax Radio his girlfriend called emergency services.

Nearly all the emergency services, including local police, firefighters, paramedics, SES and Shepparton Search and Rescue Squad arrived to assist in the rescue.

"Only three or four people actually helped, about 10 or 12 just stood back and said 'God I haven't seen this in 30 years'," he said. 

After unsuccessfully attempting to hoist him out, rescuers turned to the kitchen and commandeered Laurence's favourite olive oil to manoeuvre him out of the tight spot.

"I was quite disappointed they used my good olive oil," he said.

"As soon as the washing machine went on its side, it was a bit like a birthing."

He said while he was embarrassed to be caught in such an awkward position, he had a bit of a reputation among friends about getting his kit off.

"It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me, they just know Laurence, he's always nude."

Despite the embarrassment, Laurence remains optimistic about future high jinks.

"Nude hide-and-seek may take off in the future."
