British student auctioning off virginity for travel money

A British student is auctioning off her virginity and she's asking for over $160,000 for the night.

Jasmin, 26, has listed herself online with German-based Cinderella Escorts, and says she's a "verified virgin".

"Her virginity has been checked by a doctor and Cinderella Escorts has a medical certificate as proof of this!" the website says.

"The minimum bid for Jasmin's virginity is currently: €100,000."

Jasmin says she's "sick of waiting for the right man", and wants to use the money to build her future.

"I would like to sell my virginity on Cinderella Escorts because I want to travel the world and visit America and various other places," she said.

"Traditional views regarding virginity are so outdated. I believe that it's my choice what I do with my body and I am sick and tired of waiting for the right person to come along. After 26 years I still haven't found him so I decided a positive alternative would be selling my virginity."

Website founder Jan Zakobielski has compared Jasmin's virginity to a "very old wine".

"Most rich men like exclusive things. For example a very old wine or a luxury car which is just produced 100 times," he told The Sun.

"A woman can give her virginity just one time in her whole life, and she held it for 26 years in Jasmin's case. So Jasmin's virginity is not just rare, it's unique."

Current bidding on her virginity is up to NZ$170,000, and Jasmin hopes it hits €1 million.

"Let's be honest, who would not prefer to take a million rather than having the first time again with a guy who most likely has already left?" Jasmin says.
