Virginity for sale

Comment on this story

A cash-strapped Kiwi student is selling her virginity to the highest online bidder.

Unigirl, a 19-year-old from Northland, has placed an ad on website I Need.

“I am desperate for money to pay my ongoing fees. I have never had a sexual relationship and am still a virgin. I am offering my virginity by tender to the highest bidder as long as all personal safety aspects are observed,” reads the ad.”

David Do, co-president of the Union of Students Associations, said the union sympathised with Unigirl’s financial situation. “Many students are hard-up given the recession.”

Catherine Healy, of the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective, said she hadn’t heard of anyone else selling their virginity and found the listing “worrying”.

But sexologist Blair Bishop said he saw no problem with Unigirl’s offer. “It’s just a novel form of sex work.” – Herald on Sunday

And Capitalism works? I bet a promising student in china does not have to do this. She can keep it and give it away for free to any liar.

This story is so outdated, by now she's done probably over 20 guys.......the market is very lucrative when you sell sex for money. Imagine making a continous roll of R500 an hour after the first R120k pomp...

Why cant the govt of NZ help this desperate student.The danger of letting this girl engage in this sex for sale business is that she will find this rewarding and exciting she will do it one more time and she will end up a full time commercial sex worker.

Please supply the bidding details. It would also be great if you could send me a list of escorts should my bid fail.
