Cinderella Escorts, an auction agency, has allegedly sold an 18-year old’s virginity to an Abu Dhabi businessman for $3.9 million.
The controversial auction agency is based in Germany and helps young women sell off their virginity to older men.
According to the website, the Abu Dhabi’s businessman’s offer of 2.5 million euros beat offers from a “Hollywood actor from Los Angeles” and a “Politician from Russia.”
“Every woman has to decide on her own if it is worth to give her virginity for free to a boyfriend who maybe later on will break up with her, rather than selling it,” the 18-year old, named Giselle, said.
“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.”
Giselle described the trend of women selling their virginity as “a form of emancipation”, saying she was “shocked” at people who were against it.
“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,” she said.
“This is absurd. The fact that women can do what they want with their bodies and have the courage to live their sexuality free against the critics sets a sign for emancipation.”
Giselle said if she wanted to “spend my first time with someone who is not my first love, that’s my decision”, and that she was “happy to be part of this new trend, part of the women’s movement of recent history”.
“A women’s movement that advocates freedom and self-determination of sexuality and finally breaks the taboo about a woman’s virginity,” she said. “In retrospect, how many would probably give up their first time if they could have 2.5 million euros instead?
“Now everything has to be organised. The hotel for my meeting with the buyer in Germany is booked. Cinderella Escorts accompanies me to the meeting and stays close by as a security in case of problems. I have the opportunity to cancel the meeting at any time, but I am quite confident. I was able to talk to the buyer before and we are very [sympathetic].”
In a statement, Cinderella Escorts said it was “glad that we were able to help Giselle because we understood her dream and her motives”.
“On our website you will find a video where girls from all over the world talk about the reasons to sell their virginity,” the statement said.
“Girls from Australia, Europe, Africa, North and South America. From Arab countries and Asian. This shows us that the desire to auction a virginity is no exception.
“And on the other hand, the high bidding for Giselle’s auction shows us how high the demand for virgins is. Business people from all over the world have been bidding. Cinderella Escorts has only allowed about 40 virgins on our website so far, because of a long process.
“We make sure that the girls do not have psychological problems, are grown-up and fully aware of their desires. For this, girls have to see a psychologist who will assure us of these points.
“The girls all have sex with condoms. We organise the hotel, stay close to the [hotel] as a contact person in case of problems and the girl can cancel the meeting at any time. There are some girls who are looking for a buyer for their virginity on their own. It is safer to run this on our platform.”
