A 19-year-old model who identified herself only as Giselle announced on Thursday that she has sold her virginity for 2.5 million euros – about $2.9 million – to a businessman from Abu Dhabi. The teen indicated that the unidentified businessman outbid a Russian politician and a Hollywood actor from Los Angeles.
“I would never have dreamed that the bid would rise so high and we would have reached 2.5 million euros,” Giselle told the Mirror. “This is a dream come true.”
The American teen later said she put her virginity for sale on the German website, Cinderella Escorts, in order to earn money to pay for school tuition fees and to go traveling.
“the trend to sell your virginity is a form of emancipation and I am shocked about people who are against allowing a woman to sell her virginity. If I want to spend my first time with someone who is not my first love, that’s my decision,” she added.
Rather than trying to sell her virginity on her own, Giselle revealed that she opted for the German-based escort company because she thought it would be “safer.”
The agency claims the highest bidder was a businessman from Abu Dhabi, with a bid of 2.5m Euros ($2.9m/£2.2m), while a Hollywood actor was said to have made the second highest bid of 2.4m Euros ($2.8m/£2.1m).
“We organize the hotel, stay close to the hostel 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.” a spokesperson for Cinderella Escorts said.
This is not the first time a teen has chosen Cinderella Escorts to sell their virginity.
The agency rose to worldwide fame after the auction in 2016 of Aleexandra Khefren, 18, Romanian model who sold her virginity for 2.3 million euros (£2 million) to an unnamed businessman from Hong Kong.
Twenty percent of each auction goes as a fee to Cinderella Escorts, according to local media.
The encounter is set to take place in a German hotel where the teen will be escorted by security guards.
