A 20-year-old student is auctioning her vi_rginity online in order to raise enough money to study abroad. Ariana, from Soweto, is selling her vi_rginity on an escort site, with bids starting at R500 000.
Although she looked at other ways to raise money, she settled on the sale of her vi_rginity as the easiest way to raise money quickly.
‘Many students have the issue that during their studies they have to deal with multiple problems. You have to go to work in order to pay for your education,’ said Ariana.
“I want to move to another country for my studies in medicine. The university will be very expensive, the rent will also be high”.
Bidders in the online auction can even get two vi_rgins in one night if they also make an offer for the student’s best friend.
“Ariana does not think that offering herself is ethically wrong.She replied: “It is the easiest way to earn money in a short time.”Some critics say her auctioning herself will provide a lot of trouble for other women who yearn for independence and equality. Yet Ariana does not see any issue.
She said: “I am also an independent woman and can do just what I want. Believe me, I have thought long and hard to make this decision. I have hoped for so long to find my great love, but it did not work out. So why should I wait any longer? And why should I lose my vi_rginity to someone who could then break my heart later?”
The young student said that she looked into alternatives. But as her parents are not rich and South Africa does not offer grants to study abroad, she says she has no other chance. She says that her parents are unaware of her decision, but if they were to find out she will explain the situation to them.
Ariana hopes that the highest bidder is a gentleman who deals sensitively with the situation. She said that perhaps it will also be a man she would like to see more often after their se_xual encounter.Those who might be interested in bidding on Ariana¿s vi_rginity might also want to consider her best friend Lolita, who has also offered her vi_rginity online.
The website offers the possibility for people to bid for Lolita¿s vi_rginity alone or in combination with Ariana¿s.
It writes: “That means you can bid for 2 virgins in 1 night.”
The minimum bid for 21-year-old Lolita is also set at R500 000. Her reasons for offering herself online are currently unknown.
