An 18-year-old Romanian woman named Alexandra Kefren has apparently auctioned off her virginity to an unnamed Hong Kong businessman for a staggering $2.5 million, according to the New York Post.
Kefren said that she will be selling her virginity through a German escort service, for a minimum of 1 million euros to anyone around the world.
In an interview segment included in the clip, Kefren says the somewhat disturbing idea came to her after she saw the 1993 movie Indecent Proposal, in which Demi Moore auctions off her body for $1 million to a sleazy billionaire played by Robert Redford.
"I saw a movie on TV. It was about a girl who sold herself for $1 million a night," she explained. "And I thought, 'Maybe I can do this too with my virginity.'"
Kefren finally announced that she auctioned her virginity for about 2.5 million euros (approx. 16 crore taka). The escort service known as Cinderella Escorts booked Kegren for the highest bidder, a businessman from Hong Kong.
Aleexandra Kefren faced a lot of backlash on social media for her decision including from her family. Kefren's family told her to take a step back or they'll disown her but it didn't stop her from chasing her dreams.
She said, "I wanted to sell my virginity with Cinderella Escorts rather than giving it to a future friend who might have left me anyway. And I think many other girls have the same attitude."
She also added, "How many would possibly forgo their first time in retrospect if they could have 2.5 million euros instead? Everyone has to ask himself this question. Of course, there will be different opinions, but everyone should be able to represent and live their own."
Aleexandra Kefren said she auctioned her prized possession because she needed money to fund her college. But, it was later learnt that her parents are already quite settled in life.
The escort service that arranged this 'arrangement' received a lot of auction options from around the world from girls after Kefren's successful deal was finalised. The agency keeps a share of 20 per cent and gives the rest of the amount to the auctioneer.
