Meet Aleexandra Kefren, an 18-year-old from Eastern Europe who has auctioned off her virginity for roughly $2.5 million. Metro reports that the highest bidder is an unnamed Hong Kong businessman and that a hotel has already been booked for him and his "purchase."
Kefren became a viral sensation last year when she appeared on the U.K. show This Morning and announced she was selling her virginity via the agency Cinderella Escorts. "I wanted to sell my virginity with Cinderella Escorts rather than giving it to a future friend who might have left me anyway," she explained after the bidding was completed. "And I think many other girls have the same attitude...How many would possibly forgo their first time in retrospect if they could have 2.3 million euros instead?"
In the wake of Kefren's auction, Cinderella Escorts says it has received inquiries from hundreds of young women around the world hoping to auction off their virginity as well. The company is taking 20 percent of Kefren's profits.
