Student 'sells' virginity

2010-02-03 07:16
Wellington - A 19-year-old New Zealand student "sold" her virginity to a stranger for more than 45 000 New Zealand dollars ($31 500) to pay university fees, according to news reports on Wednesday.

The student, who called herself "Unigirl" in an advertisement on an auction website, said she received more than 1 200 bids from the 30 000 people who viewed her ad online.

"I have accepted an offer in excess of 45 000 dollars, which is way beyond what I dreamed," she said.

In the ad, she said she was attractive and still a virgin.

"I am offering my virginity by tender to the highest bidder as long as all personal safety aspects are observed," she said on the website Ineed.co.nz.

"This is my decision made with full awareness of the circumstances and possible consequences," she said.

Website proprietor Ross MacKenzie told the Waikato Times that he had been authorised to confirm the transaction, but was committed to protecting the student's identity.
