A 26-year-old student in London, simply identified as Jasmin, has put her virginity up for auction through a website that boasts about having doctors who can verify its users have not had sex.
According to a Mailonline report, she listed herself with the German-based Cinderella Escorts in the hope of raising millions of pounds to start her own business.
Bidding has already reached £90,000 but Jasmin hopes the final price will be far higher.
Website founder Jan Zakobielski, 27, who runs the business from Dortmund, Germany, likened a woman’s virginity to a ‘very old wine’ or a ‘luxury car’ and said Jasmin’s offer was ‘unique’ to buyers because of her age.
Speaking to the Sun, Jasmin, who did not give her surname, revealed her parents agreed it was a good idea to sell her virginity rather than wait for the right person.
She said: ‘I really respect ladies who are traditional and want to wait for sex after marriage. I was one of them. I really wanted to wait for the right one. But I don’t want to wait any longer.
‘So I chose another way which will make me happy. I am sure about my decision.’
The Cinderella Escorts website claims her virginity is proven with a doctor’s certificate and Zakobielski said the buyer can also ‘bring a doctor to a meeting’ for a second opinion.
Zakobielski, who will receive 20 per cent of the final price, told the Sun that he will personally ensure Jasmin’s safety if she decides to move forward with the plan. He also explained Jasmin can pull out of the transaction at any point.
The meeting would take place at a hotel in Germany, where the transaction is legal.
