Teen Auctions Off Virginity For Jaw-Dropping Amount
An American teenager who auctioned off her virginity for close to $4 million says that she'll spend the cash on university and travelling.
Giselle, a part-time model and student, teamed up with the infamous Cinderella Escorts to run the bidding and claims that her decision will help to break the "taboo" around women's virginities.
"I would never have dreamt that the bid would rise so high and we would have reached [AUD$3,877,000]," she said. "This is a dream come true.
"I think the trend to sell your virginity is a form of emancipation and I am shocked about people who are 'against' that a woman is allowed to sell HER! virginity.
"In other words, these people want to tell you what to do with your body as a woman, but they accuse somebody who is selling it of being against emancipation.
"This is absurd."
Giselle will be accompanied by security when she meets with her "date" - an unknown businessman - and can pull the plug at any time.
She has also undergone a full psychiatric assessment to ensure she is of sound mind and will use protection if the date goes ahead.
"Every woman has to decide on her own if it is worth it to give her virginity for free to a boyfriend who maybe later on will break up with her, rather than selling it," Giselle continued.
"But I made my decision and now I can study wherever I want, buy a new house and travel around the world.
"It gives me a lot of opportunities."
